    Love Doesn't Judge

    I've dated my fair share of guys....I've always based a potential boyfriend by his personality. If he's fun and makes me laugh and I feel comfortable around him, I couldn't care less if he's black, brown, white, or purple. It's what's on the inside that makes a couple compatible...

    For Someone I Still Love...

    For a change I'm not going to theorize and all that. I got inspired to write this story thanks to a story in "I Wonder If Its Possible to Love Someone You've Never Met". It made me remember someone, I'd almost forgot. Almost, because the one who's usually in front is...

    If your feel it in your heart, and it's true, there is no way that a feeling is "wrong". You cannot help who you fall in love with. It just happens. A persons gender, race and age should never stop you from loving someone. Not all people believe this but it's defiantly how I feel...

    Something Real

    To me love is something real that has noting to do with anything other than the person within.  It is something that two people share, not because of how they are in bed or how old they are nor even what skin tone they have.  Everyone is pink inside.  Everyone can...

    Unconditional

    I am bisexual, and I have no problem dating anyone regardless of race, religion, gender, age, whatever. As long as I like them, that's all that matters to me. I don't care who doesn't approve.

    True

    Sadly, not everyone is as accepting of this reality as the people who fall in love with someone that society or family deems *inappropriate*It takes courage to face them down and do what you know in your heart is the right thing for you.

    True Love

    I believe true love not depends on the age, race or gender. When only people think about  "profit " of their own , then  all these matters.
