    My First And Only Boyfriend.

    I cared for this guy quite a bit and that has never left. He has a heart of gold and I could be my weird self and he would join me. I miss his company very much. I still care about him a lot and sometimes when I think about it it makes me confused of my sexual orientation but...

    I Still Love Him

    Hard to believe that its been fourteen years since I left him. He never knew me. I was afraid that he wouldn't want me. I wad more afraid of knowing myself without judgement. Many tragedies occurred during our nine year marriage. All to me and my family. He stuck by me, but I...

    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...

    Gonna try an condense 15 years into this post.

    15 years ago, I met this girl via an online chat game. I'll call her Dawn. We hit it off instantly and we were pretty much inseparable. Because I was a night owl and she had insomnia, we'd stay up and keep each other company until the sun rose. Things were great for years...

    Over And Over Again....

    Something Is Always In the Way

    about a year and a half ago, I found this incredible girl through craigslist, while I was looking for a river trip buddy.  We met, had dinner and things just seemed to click.  I learned about her past, the fact that she had a kid, didn't bother me, as I can...

    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...
