    I'm almost 30 and have

    yet to have a healthy relationship. People tell me that I'm pretty, sweet and fun yet every relationship I've had has failed miserably. The men I've dated all tell me that I'm "too sweet" or "too nice" but I don't know how to change that. I'm beginning to doubt that I'm capable...

    I really shouldn't complain.

    In all honesty, I have a pretty great life. I have my biological family that loves me, and my adopted family that loves me. I have friends. I have a job that, unlike a lot of people, I like working at. I'm always taken care of. I have everything I need, and a little more. But I...

    I am a loving girl and one day,

    I would love to be in a partnership with a man. I would love to share my life with someone, bond intimately and conquer the world together. I'm sure it exists, I see it happen all around me. However, whenever I start dating someone, I feel an immense amount of pressure to hide...

    I really don't know where to begin.

    I have no one I can talk to. I'm a father of two boys, well men really now. 22 and 15. My wife is an alcoholic. We split years ago but through the children and no small amount of empty promises, got back together. ..sort of. When she drinks, she moves out and stays in a house...

    for almost 4 years now. We often spent the weekends a lot at his place. Two years ago, the house was quite quiet, whereby there's only his two brother, mom and granny. Coming to the 3rd year, his grandma was placed in a nursing home due to some reasons, then his step sister...

    I'm a single guy, that's truly afraid of

    getting close to someone. My entire life, relatives and people that are saturated in my life and my heart, pass on or leave. From the passing of my mother to my fiance and daughter and several others. By the time I was 21, I had buried over 15 loved ones. Never really knew...

    What Can I Say?

    I'm just a good actor. Putting a smile on my face, helping others who are having problems, and pushing my own sorrow and problems away. That'sss what I do. And part of me likes doing it, because in helping others, I feel a little bit better myself. A small part of me hopes that...

    It Isn't Just Pride

    I've been known to have a laid-back attitude (a really, really laid-back attitude if you ask me), and it's getting to the point where everything in life is beginning to just seem like nothing but life. I don't let anything get to me, I've been told that I have real-thick skin and...
