    Summertime

    He is the nicest, sweetest and most caring guy I know. He gets my humour (or lack there of) and likes my accent/face, which I find unusual. I started talking to him in my first year of uni through a website that will remain nameless.. but anyway. We got talking through there...

    Is It Wrong

    I have this friend I've never met before, known her for about two years. I'll spare the whole drama story and just say I fell for her. Now she likes someone else after she stopped liking me (though it took a long time). I have a simple question to all this. Is it wrong as a...

    More Than One....

    I told someone something tonight. Something I have never told anyone. Many reasons have kept it inside..........mostly bad ones. I have just never felt that it is something that I could share with someone, for fear of looking weak, or changing their opinion of me...

    On the topic of friends. I guess i have never really had the friends I want. And when it comes down to it, I can blame any reason but the truth is just to blame myself and to move on, I feel. In time perhaps I will solve this. Reality of the situation is, I find life...

    She Saved Me From A Potentially Dark Path

    Timing can be a funny thing in the grand scheme of things, can't it?...... I have spent the last 2 years of my life on a roller coaster ride of ups and downs, good and bad, at the highest highs, and the lowest lows. Recently I had been through what was yet another heart wrenching...

    A Wonderful Friend

    I have a best friend I've never met, thanks to EP. It is funny how you can feel so close to someone you've never met in "real life." Friendships that blossom online can be totally different.  Maybe it is because you doubt you'll ever met the other person that you...

    and I live in American and after almost ten years I feel closer to her than I ever have to anyone I've met in person. I don't know if our bond is so visceral and strong because our relationship is removed from a lot of situations that can ruin friendships in real life, or simply...

    My Best Friend Was Someone I Never Had The Chance To Meet.....

    My name is Dave and I am 42 years old. Sorry this is not an online long distant 'love story'! It is a call out by me to try to make sense of a realization I had when a friend passed away. I usually would not be offering my emotions publicly but I need to get this out and doing it...

    More Than Just A Truly Wonderful Friend

    I do have a truly wonderful friend on EP. He was the first friend I made here and he is a true gem. He's patiently given advice, let me cry on his (vitual) shoulder, made me smile and sometimes out and out laugh, kept my mind occupied when I was sinking into a funk, protected me...
