    Open letter to my crush First things first:

    you have kids, and I respect that. I agree with your desire to be a decent dad for them. I wouldn't have you any other way. Your basic decency and good treatment of other people in general is one of the things I love about you. So, it might be years before you're really "free...

    I thought I could stand the temptation

    but when he kissed my hand yesterday I was so happy... I feel really bad. I already have a boyfriend so how can I fall for someone that easily? It got worse... Before I just dreamed of him very often, then I thought about him more than about my boyfriend and now I can't think...

    There is a man with whom I became friends

    nearly a year ago. At first, he was all over me (metaphorically) - he had a pretty big crush, but I was sure it would be temporary. I figured he was out of my league - he's attractive, intelligent, funny and popular. He persisted (on and off) - and finally, I succumbed. He...

    It Seems Impossible..

    All of it seems unreal. He's 16. I'm 13. He lives in England. I live in Canada. Our time zones are 4 hours apart. We live 3000 miles away from each other. There is an ocean between us. I can't think of one thing to make it harder. Today, he asked me to be his girlfriend. And I...

    She is older than me.

    She lives several states away. She is in an unhappy, dead-end relationship. We were good friends for a long time. She talked me through some of the worst moments of my life. I didn't mean to fall in love -- it just happened, and she didn't stop me. Now I have to work through...

    I love someone I shouldn't.

    He's been through so much and cannot handle commitment. But yet he's been here almost every night. He buys whatever I need ( without me asking) and gifts just for me. We spend more time together than apart. How is this not a relationship?? I keep hoping against hope..

    Every time I feel better about it,

    more light-hearted and ready to move on....for some reason I start to miss him again. He's so smart and funny and sexy. Will I ever meet anybody else like him? Sometimes I'm fine and other times I'm dying inside.

    Star-Crossed As Ever.

    I am married. It's not a real marriage, though. We still consider each other as boyfriend/girlfriend. We only got married because of the benefits it would bring us, and because it meant that he could move with me when my job relocated me. Our history is pretty simple. "David" and...
