    I've always wanted to share this story.

    .. It all started in sixth grade. There we were in science class, a science project was due of making a Q&A board with some electrical wires blah blah... I did not bring nearly half the materials required to do the project. It was by groups but given my popularity back then, i...

    The One That Got Away

    I guess everyone out there has that story of someone who they really liked and yet something drove them apart. In my case it happened when i was 15. I met this girl and we really hit it off, it wasn't long before we were talking non stop and revealed to each other that we had...

    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...

    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...

    He Was Pure Goodness . . .

    He crosses my mind at least once a day . . . STILL. . . and it's been 17 years, 2 children, a cheating husband, a divorce, a 2nd marriage to a WONDERFUL MAN . . .   but the memories of that time are so precious.We got very close to having a full blown affair and I considered...

    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...

    What If

    Whenever someone mentions having "the one that got away", only one person comes to my mind. We were taking up a similar review class some years ago and we got to know each other for a couple of months. We became fast friends and after spending almost everyday with him within...

    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...

    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...
