    Why Should I?

    It ignores me daily and on the rare few times I've decided to give chase it has eluded me. Apparently the fates have deemed that I will not be rewarded with love or romance. I know belief can be invlved in things unseen, but that kind of belief draws reality. So if I can't...

    Love?

    As the years tick by in my now 12 year marriage. I have never doubted the "power" of love more than now. I feel that the feelings that we get when we are in a new relationship are more akin to infatuation and sexual attraction. It's more of a mating instinct than anything else...

    If no one ever loves me

    for who I am, then why should I bother anymore? I know love doesn't exist for me and I just give up.

    Love Is A Many Splendid Thing...(can You See Me Rolling My Eyes???)

    Fantasy Land!

    I thought I loved a woman once, but now I question all of it! Was it real? Did love actually enter the equation at all? Was I just a fool? Blinded? Feels like it was all a dream, a fantasy. If it was real, wouldn't I have found it somewhere? Now I'm not so sure I believe in...

    Religion is for those who are scared of going to hell. Spirituality is for those who've already been there.

    I think the bible is a load of fairytales but I don't know if I believe in God or not. It says that God loves you... but then he damns you to hell if you're not a good person
