    We All Are

    When I was little, my mom was friends with a psychiatrist, who would come stay at our house, every so often. He was a nice man. He brought us gifts every visit, told funny stories, and basically let us do anything we wanted. On one of his visits, my sister and I were fighting for...

    I Wonder.

    I wonder if she, whoever that may turn out to be, stays up late thinking about me. About when we will meet, about when we will first embrace.   Because I do.

    I've been alone for many years.

    The reasons to why are numerous.Life responsibilities and health issues kept getting in the way of living, in a relationship, with a woman. Things are slowly improving, I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Is it too late? Have I loss the opportunity to be with my soul mate...

    I Hope This Brings Hope

    Most of the time it is the small things that matter, and for this story that is surely the truth. A silly little conversation between two young girls sitting on a bed who probably wouldn't ever see each other again that changed my outlook on life. Her name was Hyun-Soo and we...

    Single...Not Loving It

    I've been single for as long as I can remember. At first, I loved it because I thought that the freedom was great. No commitments to tie me down and all that. At the time, love just never came to mind. Then...I got older, and feelings started to change. I found myself staring...

    I can't seem to get into a relationship

    and it hurts my feelings because boys don't have a problem with pursuing me but I'm not good enough to date exclusively. I'm open but not over the top in my search for love and idk maybe it's my lack of confidence.

    Being Single Sucks!

    Freedom - n. the absence of or release of ties or obligations.When I was married, there was a part of me that wanted to be free to do the things I want the way I wanted to do them.  Ugh.  Freedom isn't always what it is cracked up to be.  Yes now I can do those things...but I...

    I think of myself as a jigsaw puzzle cut a bit

    too odd. Everyone else seems to have found multiple pieces that have been able to "click" into place with them, for a small amount of time, at the least. The potentials I meet are just too far off and we usually both realize it as a mutual incompatibility.
