    I Never Listened

    My ex and I recently broke up a couple months ago. He and I were dating for over a year and were madly in love with each other. So I thought. From the very start when we first met, his mom never liked me. She was so in love with his ex girlfriend. After time I thought she liked...

    Am I The Only One?

    Many times I find myself asking this question. Especially here recently.. I'm not sure why I joined this website or why I'm writing this. Maybe because its easier to share my feeling with a group of stangers?becauseI'm not sure who can even view this. I just feel like I've held...

    Just One Time?

    In retrospect it seems stupid. It's the one thing I swore I'd never do. I tolerated cheating. The first time was when he kissed her in my room during my party. Thrice they made out during my party. I knew, yet I kept quite. When he confessed and swore to never do it again, I...

    Just Like a Salesman

      He was the "good times" guy. He was fun. He was kinda dumb. But he had some panache that my previous aerospace engineer boyfriend had lacked. He was good at grand gestures...New York for the weekend, ten dozen roses for my birthday. But on the card? He spelled...

    I Finally Left!

    Because I was in love, and naive, and he was one hell of a smooth talker.  He could sell a pair of 500 dollar shoes to a person with legs.  Do I have regrets, yes and no.  I loved him, and I learned a lot about myself and the world by being with him; but that was hell on...

    Reason Enough

    I expected him to cheat. In fact, when he asked me to marry him, I assumed he meant a marriage in name only.  After all, he was gay.  And not that closeted, repressed, nobody knows kind of gay.  No, he was out, proud, and had already confronted everyone who might have a...

    Just A Question

    If you know that he is going to cheat, shouldn't you plan to cheat too? You knew he was going to, you stayed with him anyway, so shouldn't you be allowed to have some on the side as well? Just asking.

    I Keep Thinking He'Ll Learn

    Oh he's learning alright. Learning exactly how to not get caught again. It all started when I was 8 months pregnant with our first child. A thank you for your flower purchase came in the mail. I didn't get any flowers so I called him to find out what was going on. He didn't...

    I used to get lashed quite a bit when I was a kid. I think that might have something to do with my fetish for being whipped today, as weird and creepy as that feels to say.

    It was my parents form of discipline when we were very bad, I know it certainly taught us not to do it again. It didn't happen often, perhaps because we learned our lessons well.
