    I was never a fan of the idea of being in a

    relationship till now... Growing up, I never had this urge to be in a relationship. I always admired people who were in healthy and loving relationships but it was never something I imagined myself to ever jump into. Of course I believed that one day I would be in a...

    I am in a ridiculous love quadrangle with three

    men who are exactly my type. I wish the one I've loved for years would just do something about it. None of the three are ready for marriage, especially given that they are all younger than I am. I just want to get married.

    A woman to hold. Someone to accept me as I am. And love me for what I am. Maybe I dream to much or somewhere in the past 10 years I've stepped back to thinking as a child that it's out there. But at this point I just want to try. I'm so tired of the games people play. The false...

    but im sure it exists- it would be amazing to be with a man who is secure and confident enough to support me rather than hold me back, a man who is open sexually about his wants, needs and desires and allows me the oppurtunity to satisfy all of them and vs versa. Of course...
