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

    "Love, love, you know what love is? Love is an illusion created by lawyer types like yourself to perpetuate another illusion called marriage to create the reality of divorce and then the illusionary need for divorce lawyers." (Kevin played by Andrew McCarthy, St. Elmo's Fire...

    I Love You But...

    Never really understood loving relationships. I thought everybody fought, yelled, screamed and hit. That was what I came up knowing. Then in my mid-twenties something magical (or I thought so at the time) happened. I learned of another side. A side where people got along. There...

    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...

    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...
