    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...

    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...

    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...

    Relationships Are the Hardest Thing In Life

    Where to start?  I find relationships, just not with your loved ones, but even with family very difficult. I've had a very strange life.  I had a estranged relationship with my father; he was both physically and verbally abusive.  At the age of 17 it climaxed...

    The main reason why I don't care much for dating is because I'm tired of the drama associated with dating.

    Never Know

    I never know if they are for real or not. I have had so many bad experiences that I almost find it easier to stay out of relationships then to be in them.

    In my city there are a lot of interracial relationships. I've grown around them. I myself have been in such relationships. Race isn't a factor when it comes down to love.
