    Yup.

    Meh. I don't know what to do about it. Possibly let time take its course and see what happens.

    We make music together.

    She's gorgeous, young, and clearly admires me. At one point she wanted to kiss, but stopped herself. Now each time she smiles at me I spend the next days until we see each other again thinking about her. It's possible we could be in a passionate affair, but for now she lights up...

    I Wasn't Lonely Until I Met You...

    My whole life I have been quite comfortable with not having a girlfriend. I'd have a fling here or there but never got to the actual point of 'Boyfriend/Girlfriend' status with someone (sometimes because I would look too far ahead and see it not working out so I wouldn't...

    His Name Is Dumby Lol

    He's become my best friend and I think I could have him if I want to. I also want what's best for him, so maybe he's better off with her. This hurts!

    Cat and Mouse...

    I never expected it, didn't seek it out, but somehow fell in love with a married woman. What a mess! Loving someone you cannot have. Emails, phone calls, sweet words back & forth. Ending up where? At an impasse. She has a 13 year old child to raise and feels obligated...

    Loving Some One I Can't Have.

    It's heart rending to fall in love with some who cares little or not about you. As I said in my previous write ups, I am married to a man I have no romantic or erotic love for. I married him out of simple obedience and respect for the wishes of my late father, thereby making me...

    You wouldn't take my outstretched hand. Were you scared? Are you afraid of how it makes you feel? That spark that jumps between our skin like electricity, flitting and flying through the air. I know you like to have control, to pick and chose, to have everything in order, in...

    He's Very Loyal

    And he's married to this awful woman who habitually lies to him, as well as abuses both him (emotionally) & their daughter (probably "only" emotionally). He is miserable, but far too loyal to ever leave her.

    I wake up still tired from falling asleep way too late. The sound of my alarm tells me time for breakfast, so eventually after a few thoughts of what kind of a day this is going to be(not even purely pessimistic ones), I get up anyway. I have my usual what-to-wear struggle. I...
