    I feel so alone lately.

    I have been feeling like this for such a long time and I don't know how to fix it. I just need someone in my life who I can connect with very deeply. Someone who completely understands me and doesn't judge me. Someone who can understand the kind of person I am to the very core...

    My friend killed herself on Christmas Eve.

    I'm straight, but at times I felt like I was in love with her. Maybe it was because she a lesbian and she was in love with me, but she made me feel normal - Happy, loved, desired, cherished. Things I've never felt from anyone. At times I wanted her to find the perfect girl, but...

    Emotional Intimacy

    Married Without Intimacy Is Worse Than Being Single
