    ...and Just Kept Right On Doing It...

    My story is probably not uncommon: five years ago, I fell, hard, for someone who looked a lot like they were falling for me too. there was massive chemistry, and he went out of his way to spend tons of time with me - still does. But, before anything could get further than...

    Affairs Of The Heart & Other Foolishness

    Years ago, I had an affair. I won't say it was my proudest moment but I don't apologize for it either.   If people choose to judge me, so be it. Yes, I made a huge fool of myself.    I fell for all the classic lines.    I ignored all the warning signs.   I chose to...

    Am I Asking For Too Much?

    You know that quote from Marilyn Monroe? If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best... I think this applies really well to the guys I've been with. Or at least that's the only way I know how to see it, I've been an emotional wreck I know that, but I...

    More Than Once

    I am guilty... I had time and time again trusted guys too quickly and thought they were being honest with me, like I am with them. But, had to find out the hard way who they truly were. So, I was a fool, giving them love and understanding that they didn't deserve.

    And I Have Learned From It

    I've been such a fool---and that foolishness drove me to do the craziest things i have done before, but after that really rough storm, i became a better, wiser, stronger person. Foolishness can also teach us something, and i'm glad it did to me. I'm a smart girl, and I know I...
