    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 am stupid for letting her go.

    She was the combination of cute and sexy with sophistication. I don't know a lot of girls that have all 3 but she damn well did. I miss her tan skin and that gorgeous smile of hers. The way she'll call me up with her flirty voice and her awful jokes that made me laugh cuz it was...

    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...

    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'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...

    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...

    It all started with a picture my best friend

    sent me. A picture of an adorable girl I had never seen before. We started talking and after just two weeks we were officially dating. Everything was perfect. 6 months later and everything started to change. We didn't see each other a lot and were always busy. We grew apart and...

    I had a great guy, he loved me

    and was awesome. I was an idiot to let him go. I thought I'd met 'mr right', so I told him it was over. I'm pretty sure I broke his heart. Mr right turned out to be Mr WRONG in every way. I feel stupid for breaking up with a good thing by thinking I'd found something better. No...

    25 years ago I met a guy through mutual friends.

    We had so much in common - liked the same TV and same taste in music, both gay and he lived in the next town. Used to go round to his a few times a week and it was all going great. Never told him how I felt because I didn't want to spoil our friendship. Then I met the man I was...

    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 remember the day I first saw you,

    you were holding the teacher's stuff when you entered our class, it was just a glimpse, you smiled to my friend which was also your former classmate in primary. I never fell for you in the first sight. You were nothing, nothing special back then. But then I got the chance to...
