    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

    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...
