    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...

    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...

    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...
