    I've never believed in love at first sight.

    Until this summer. I was on vacation with my family in Austria- where I met him. First thing I noticed were his eyes. Dark brown, thoughtful, puppy eyes. He had blond hair, very pale skin, thin lips and seemed very shy. Actually no ideal of beauty, but there was something...

    And no one, including me, really seems to understand. That's why I am glad I found this place, because I need to know that I am not the only one. There is this guy that I have been seeing over the past two years. Maybe a bit more. From the very beginning there was something...

    Even now I can't stop thinking of him.

    I do it the way I breathe, the echo of his voice in my heart beat. I don't even notice it's happening until I fix my mind upon it like the blinking of an eye. His essence is in everything I do. He's a part of every thing I am.
