    I Should Have Done It Different

    I fell in love at 15 years old with a man that was my soul mate - I may not have known it then, but I do now after years of searching.  I am 53 years old and have never loved another like my first love.  I am not sure I can.  He is still me, my life partner, father...

    A Part Of Me

    I am not a marriage type. Neither is she. I am fairly unconventional. So is she. We shared very similar tastes about everything. Loved the same things. Hated the same things. You can assume so far that we clicked and it turned into a three-year relationship. Then, the problems...
