    I see everybody else with somebody

    and I just can't keep a relationship. I desperately want to but I'm just not outgoing enough. I'm good looking enough (6pack, strong chest and big biceps. all toned.) My problem is that i'm not outgoing enough I think or I just get to scared to try and be more than friends. I...

    I divorced 3 and half years ago.

    And after that I haven't found love again. I remember the feeling. I remember the butterflies and the feeling that I just can't live without him. And I remember how sex wasn't just about sex, it was about connection and wanting to get even closer to him. The fact is that I...

    Living The Dull Life

    I am so tired of being alone.

    sometimes I wonder if being with someone just to be with someone is better than waiting for "the one". what if the one never comes along and I wasted my life being alone instead of sharing it with someone

    Today Is My Birthday

    It's been a while since I had a good birthday. Or even a mediocre one. Part of me thinks it's because I have unrealistic expectations. And part of me figures that's just par for the course in my life. So it is what it is. I took today off work. "To pamper myself," is what I...
