    Is Chivalry Dead?

    What happened to honesty and fidelity? Where did men who are masculine yet compassionate go? The good women/men get burned so bad that we don't want to reach out anymore. If a good thing comes along we are so wrapped up in our depression that would wouldn't know it if it came up...

    I Choose Oscar Wilde

    I have always felt communicating effectively is if not the hardest, one of the hardest ,  things to do in a relationship. There are so many factors involved: age, sex, language education, status, power, culture, politics, religion, and the fact that the other person...

    Pretty Panic

    So long story short my boyfriend has VERY attractive girl friends. Though I'm not worried that he likes them or would ever do anything to hurt me, I do worry that he thinks they are prettier than me. I know it shouldn't matter because he's with me and not them. But it does bother...

    Never Know

    Over Done

    I feel that when if comes to relationships that I over give. I'm the one who thinks about the little things... ex little notes/reminders, flowers, cards, etc. I'm the one that remembers to call, I'm the one that cries over it. Maybe it's that I'm the only one interested in making...

    I feel like I have to be in a relationship to

    have sex or do anything period. I'm so prude without the title.. But what is this title ? I feel I just use it to avoid judgement.. I find it way more thrilling to not know a guy inside and out and every breath he's ever taken and how that felt for him. I never act on these...
