    Getting Up After Falling

    I too am starting over again. I know that most people think of separation as stage in marriage when it goes bad, but I feel it can go for any relationship. I was not married to this girl...I will call her Bobo...but I loved her as if we were. I did not picture my future...

    No More Happy Ending For Us

    I started dating Kevin when I was 20 years old. We instantly clicked over a variety of interests, beliefs and we had so much fun together. When I first met him I thought is was only going to be a year because I had never been in a long term relationship longer than 1 year before...
