    Nothing Is Perfect

    I met a woman a few months ago that pursued me.  She worked right around the corner from my office.  We messengered back and forth all day.  Her sexy talk was really fun but really it was only fun to me.  Her pics she sent showed that she was fairly attractive.  One day we...

    That Rare Woman Who Can See The Inner Me

    I long for an intense relationship with a confident, strong-willed woman who won't rely on me to lead the way but will instead take control and awaken the inner me to her passionate personality.

    A Letter To Him That He'll Never See.

    I am prideful. Stubborn. Picky. Difficult. Argumentative. Strong-willed. A hard nut to crack.But once you get past my mouthy exterior, I'm the most loving, caring, understanding person you could imagine. It just takes a good man who is willing to get past my walls.I had a guy...

    Stupid Lust

    I want it, but it's just stupid lust. It'll ruin my life. Not worth it.

    Unhappily Ever After

    This is how I can hate you, and how I used to hate you, every single day, to keep myself from talking to you. If I ever wanted to stop talking to you this is what I would do: I would start convincing myself that everything you were saying to me was a total lie. Just because I...

    Her Hands

    I am a married guy with a wife who has decided sex is not important.  I work in retail and get flirted with all day long.  I am not ugly, I'm fit and I have tons of self confidence. Now while I love my wife, the lack of intimacy for no apparent reason has left me feeling like I...

    A Bunch Of Things

    I want so many things in life that I just know I will never have.  Sometimes I ask to myself, "why you want those if you just know you will never have it?" Different mood lead me to reach different conclusions.  However in general is because my wants are my dreams and without...

    Some kind of food

    I know I'll never have the other half (or maybe third?) of my CAKE. Someone else already took it. But that's ok, as long as it's happy :)

    Incomplete

    There are several things in my life that I always wanted since I was little, but by now I believe that I will never fulfill them. As painful as that is, I realize that somethings are just not meant to be.

    Good Bye.

    I'm sitting here now looking out at the water by the bench where we shared our magical and earth shattering first kiss. Sometimes, if I'm upset, and missing you, I think about that. If it never happened imagine... we would have just continued the rest of our lives as they were...

    Love...

    I don't believe in romantic love anymore. I've spent too many years believing people when they said they loved me. It's a fictional concept, in my opinion. I believe in platonic love, yes. But not romantic. I think everyone is looking for the next big thing when in a...

    Only When I'm Lonely

    Most of the time I like me, I like my life. But every now and then I wish I someone who would take me in his arms and kiss my forehead and hold me close and promise to never let me go.  And say, "It's gonna be alright."

    A Sad Story Indeed.

    These things seem completely unattainable: Peace of mind. A boy I've liked since I was 10 (he's now a young man). My best friend back. My father back. Someone that will love me as much as I love them. Amongst a multitude of other things that I am too tired and now...

    True Happiness.

    I don't know why, but I have begun to feel that I might not be able to be happy ever. All my plans and all my dreams keep shattering at every step. Yet, I try and mend only to see them break into pieces again. Anything and everything that makes me smile or happy, slips away. I...

    I'm a guy. 29, 300+ lbs, single, uncomfortable around people, trouble with anything socially related. I keep on thinking of what it would be like to be a beautiful, petite girl. To have a boyfriend/husband that will take me in his arms when he comes home. That will hug me and...

    How Could This Possibly Work? A Letter To Him.

    You know, its not just being aggravated by today... Its a realization. And hopefully maybe for you too, because its not something new to me. I figured this out a long time ago, even before he was born, before we ended things for the first time. Its that, you will always have...

    Don't We All?

    Mostly what I want from life is to know what to expect, but I know I won't get that. Thats not how it works at all. We all want to know what to expect every now and then but do we really get it? Most likely not unless we are psychic. So anyway thats what I want; to know what...
