    Have Always Been a Single Mum.

    I love to love but when it came to living with a man it was never something I was good at. As a surviver of child abuse and having two daughters I just could not feel right at home with a guy, so I never married. I worked all the dead end jobs, and worked alot of them...

    Another Form Of Difference?

    I'm 44 and unmarried. Other people find it unbelievable.that I've never been married, not even one time. I used to blame my parents for this-they're from the '50's-another time, era. But now I know that it's from my time and way of doing things. The truth being that I don't...

    Never Had a Chance

    She had my baby when we were both 16. Right away she saw "the kid" as a burden on her lifestyle. After all, cheerleading practice and hanging at the mall were much more important than her own son, weren't they? Shallow *****. The only thing I ever saw in her was how she...
