    Wasn't Looking, But It Happened.

    I'm a pretty quiet person so I don't meet new people easily, but I found communicating online fairly easy. One day a few years ago I signed up for a fan site. After not finding what I was looking for on the main site I ventured into the forums to ask other fans if they knew. This...

    Heart Broken

    Long story short, for four years, I been talking to this man. He wanted to see me (he lives out of state) and I was ready to see him but then basically just told me that I am NOT independent because I live with my parents. And he also told me that I am too much drama. He was the...

    It Didn't Last Long

    I found her brousing profiles on AOL.Sent her an e-mail or 2. She answered, I answered, etc. Then it went to phone, then to real life. We dated about a year, lived together 2 and were married for 10 until she passed away a few months ago.Worked for me.

    A guy had been very interested in me

    and also lived in my city, so I really wanted something to happen because I had NEVER been in a relationship before and almost believed that he was The One. Sadly, my parents refused me to continue the relationship because they thought he was a pervert or something. So it broke...

    How Do You turn It Off?

    How do you cool your lips after a sweet summer's kiss? How do you turn your eyes from meaningful glares? How do you block the very sound of a voice you know any where, and hear every where? How do you numb your very skin after the tenderest touch? How do you slow the blood...

    I Was In Love With a Chat Partner

    In 1998, I met a guy in the 30's room of Yahoo Chat.  As I have found out later, he accidentally got into the 30's room when he actually meant to join the 20's room.  Initially, he did not impress me at all as someone who would be interested to chat again. ...

    Uh Yeah

    Then I married her, she cheated on me, knocked out one of my teeth then threatened to slit my throat.  We got divorced, I never saw her again! That's about it in a nutshell!
