    So I love my boyfriend a lot.

    More than I could ever have imagined loving anyone. He makes me a better person, and so happy. We're currently looking for places to move into when I finish college this May. Which is, you know, exciting, and I'm super happy at even the prospect . . . if it weren't for my...

    Oh. my. god. My sister just set me up on a

    blind date with a friend of hers from work. "You'll like her", she says. When I asked her if this friend knew about me all she will say is. "She knows enough...". F.m.l. I can't even call to cancel. My sister refuses to hand over the number just tells me where we're meeting...

    What do you do when your close family member is

    The Biggest Lie I Continuously Tell Myself

    On most days, I know perfectly well what I need to do.  Sometimes, I wish very much that I did not know.  In a way, I long for the time when I did not know, and it did not matter if I knew or not, because someone would always be there to help bail me out if things went...
