    My mom and dad met in college.

    She went to UT and he went to Texas A&M. Even though their schools were rivals, they instantly became best friends, and my mom told me that she felt a special connection towards my dad. They dated all through college but after college, things got a little bit more complicated...

    Because Of Him

    I've been through tons of hardships in my life that have caused me to be more mature than someone my age (17). I know what it's like to grow up in a poor family with divorced parents. I know what it's like to watch your best friend of 8 years die in front of you. I know what it's...

    Long Distance

    I would say that the feelings in long distance relationships, are equal to, and can sometimes be far more intense than those in a normal relationship, as you are able to spend so much time apart. It can be hard, yes indeed, it can be very hard, but the feeling of seeing them, and...

    I was recently in a long distance relationship.

    I still think she is awesome but I also think we both knew the odds were against us. Being across international borders is always tough. I am always open to talking, however. I still think a LD relationship can work. I'm obviously on the road a lot for my job and would love to...

    I Wouldn't Trade You For the World Baby.

    I do feel as if long distance relationships can work. People say that a relationship consists of 50% from one person and 50% from the other person. I strongly disagree with that. If one person only bring 50% of themselves and their hearts to the relationship who is going to have...
