    Sadly,I do..

    the problemo starts when I know whoever I'm attached to isn't attached to me as much as I am,and I feel like one day that person will go out in this world and leave me behind and take a part of me without realizing it. thinking about this gets me emotional and I sometimes have...

    I Am Exhausted.

    I absolutely hate when someone talks to you, makes you care, and then leaves. That hurts What hurts more, or maybe just adds to the hurt, is when they find someone who is pretty much your ****** twin, and replaces you. That burns your heart. Then you find out, that she is way...

    Well yes I have felt this, over and over, I am so used to it now, I am not even sure I tend to care about the issue too much. It made me depressed and angry so why actually bother about it? I cared for, and still do about people there are some that have much more powerful impact...

    I Get WAY To Attached

    It's really hard for me. At times I can be completely attached to someone. And they say how much they like me, and even love me as their friend. They bring me into their family circle and I think "Wow. I feel so whole inside." But suddenly, as if the whole world crashes down...

    She found me as a broken man and helped to fix me up. She made me think I wasn't worthless and that I mattered. She gave me a warm feeling inside my newly mended heart that I had forgotten I could feel. That feeling makes me want to return the favor and more. I want to know...

    Looking for Love (and Sex)

    Some of the women on here, I believe, have a different view of me and what I want.  Yes, I am looking for sex, because I've been deprived of it for two years by a wife who doesn't seem to care anymore.  No, that's not all I'm looking for.  The horny side of me is...
