       I have been in a relationship for almost seven years now. I do love my boyfriend like I have never loved anyone else before him though I still don't understand what he thinks half of the time.    Half of the time, he's mad at me for something that I...

    I'm Missing Part of the Picture

    I guess, I just don't understand. I don't understand how one minute they can be smiles and laughter and the next a total b*stard. One of the ladies where I worked was seeing a fellow from the same company. They seem to hit it off rather well and seem to be destined for bigger...

    I love terms of endearment when used by people who are being genuine. But when someone just uses it online when they don't know who I am I find it to be fake and meaningless.
