    I'm currently with someone

    who has a kind heart and who I believe despite his actions is trying to do the right thing. He supported me emotionally and financially for a year. As far as looks he isn't much to look at, he's cute in his own way and amazing in bed. Now there's another guy who I was messing...

    At 27 years old, married

    and wanting to start a family, the last thing you would think I would do is leave all of that for a lucrative travel assignment. But that's where I've been for the last 5.5 months. My agency is paying for my beautiful apartment and has allowed me to pay off nearly $20k of debt...

    Warring With Myself.

    I can't say I've ever really had to choose. I've always been a very logical person. Emotions aside, I consider the effect of things in the long run. I'm usually very down to earth and not easily swept away by my emotions. But things started to change when my future came...

    Always Follow My Heart

    I have always followed my heart when it comes to anything but especially in relationships.  I have always jumped in heart and soul when I meet people I feel I have a connection with.  I actually invited a man to move in with me that I knew for 3...

    I'm in the position right

    now where I have growing feelings for someone but know we are going different places in life and it won't work. Part of me wants to say screw it and just live in the moment but I don't want either of us to feel that inevitable heartbreak.

    It's been one week. One week

    since I've met O online, and we've been as inseparable as you can be during an online relationship. I didn't think much of it initially - I thought he'd provide some good company and fun since we share similar passions; maybe we could share one passionate fling for a couple of...

    It Can Be So Hard...

    I've never been much of a car person... I've just taken the car that has been available, never reached for the unattainable ones. Now it seems that I'm torn between 2 cars... one that my heart yearns and the other that my head says I should take. I never thought I would be in...
