    What If

    My First Love...

    My "One Who Got Away" would be my first love. I met him when I was 19 and he broke up with me not long after I turned 21. We were together for nearly 2 years and I treated him like ****. I was young, troubled and didn't know how to appreciate a wonderful guy. I was a moody and...

    I'm the Number One Fan of the Man From Tennesee

    He and I were best friends, we hadn't met in person but shared everything.  We would talk for hours on the phone.  I would buy phone cards just to talk to him. (this was before I had a cell) If I couldn't get a phone card then he would find a way to call me, I'd say we...

    I've always wanted to share this story.

    Imagine Jack Sparrow

    for moment. Yes, the fictional pirate! He's just a little bit bad, but mostly good, with a wicked sense of humor. He's drop dead sexy, incredibly witty, and has an accent that melts otherwise rational American women right in their tracks. Got that image in your head? Ok, now...

    It's a long story and I'm keeping it short,

    but tonight I'm struggling with seeing him and his new girl. She's like me....before he was with her, he still tried for me and I was scared. Scared of feeling oppressed and trapped and all-around afraid of commitment with him. We had been engaged before, together for years and...

    I loved him with all my heart.

    He was the first boy I ever really had such strong feelings for and I let him slip away because of my own insecurities. He came back into my life recently and I took it as a message that we were meant to be. But as we talked again, I realized the one who got away wasn't the same...

    Some people may see what was there all along. And then there are those other people. The ones that run as far as they can so they don’t have to look at themselves.
