    The only time I really feel it is when my friends are all excited about a new relationship - I miss that initial dizziness you get when you meet someone new. Knowing that I'll never again have a first kiss with a new man is quite hard for me - I used to be a bit of a player...

    Wishing I Were Single

    I am in a marriage and I wish that I was not at times. There is no love there anymore. We never have sex and we barley speak. We have been together for 10 years. We have kids together so that makes it even harder.

    It's Better To Be Single And Wish That You're Married, Than Be Married And Wish You Were Single.

    I've been married for a few years to my husband. He's a generally nice guy. He has a steady job, doesn't have gross habits, and pretty much let's me be myself. In some ways, he's the ideal partner. He just drinks too much, though and this has been a problem in the years we've...
