    He has a history of being a heartbreaker &

    ladies man. I've been warned but now he's in his 40's & tells me he's a changed man. We've been deeply in love for over a year & he hasn't done anything wrong. Should I marry him?

    I shouldn't love him hell I shouldn't even like him!  The list of what I shouldn't with him could go on forever!  I shouldn't look forward to hearing from him or count down when I'm going to see him again.  I hate that he is at work right now and I...

    In Over My Head

    I love my best friend and I don't know why. I'm confused as to whether it's botherly or in a gay way. I would rather have a girlfriend, but I don't know if that will change anything. I find myself OBSESSING over him! I consider him family so this makes it even more damn twisted...

    Time To Say Goodbye?

    Once upon a time I felt like I was his whole world, like my feelings mattered and I was loved. I believed in him and trusted him. I gave him everything I had to give. I was there when he needed me, staying up all night for days on end if he needed to talk. This was all okay...

    I am married with two children.

    I have been married for five years now. To start from the very beginning though, I was in love with a boy from grade school. He was always in the back of my mind as we got older, although we never dated. Only as kids which doesn't count....anyways I met someone else when I was...

    Dangerous!

    I sometimes feel like I love my best friend. I told him i have thought about it before. He said he understood and was not surprised. I love him as a brother anyway. But I suppose if it weren't for his dad we might be together. His stepmother likes me and she doesn't know I'm bi...

    I was infatuated by a guy

    that I've seen between classes. I usually don't get to know the people that I'm interested in, I always just stay with the desire to meet them until it fades away, but in this case, I did get to talk to him, to get to know him (facebook really helps to start those things). It's...

    I Know It Cannot Be Fixed.

     In high school, I met a guy, Matt, that was always there for me. We always had fun together and I was sure that he was going to be the guy that I would spend the rest of my life with. We dated for almost 3 years but the last few months were rocky. I was 19 at the time, and...
