    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....

    I was married for a very long time to a man who would not work and cheated throughout the marriage. I stayed and raised my children believing that I didn't want them to have a broken home. When they were grown I filed for divorce with success. After the divorce, dating was...

    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...

    Failing Fast

       I was in a long term relationship with a girl based on what I thought was mutual love and respect. It turns out she was cheating on me. It has become apparent that she has a reputation for stealing boyfriends away from their girlfriends, cheating on her partners, and...

    My mind is reeling. I feel I could relive this

    past relationship for the rest of my life, seeing it from different angles, at times feeling happy and grateful and loving, at other times angry, embittered, and inferior. I know that this is not healthy to dwell for so long on lost love. Time is passing, things are changing...

    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...

    I don't think it's so much the fact

    that he moved it; it's the fact that he moved on as soon as we were over and even though we are still friends, I feel like our relationship meant nothing to him at all

    It's been over two months

    since one of my best friends stopped talking with me, and I still can't bring myself to move on from him. I know I should, but I can't help but hope beyond hope that things will someday get back to where they once were.

    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...
