    That Is the Thing

    Holidays are such a odd thing on EP.  I guess everywhere in life really. Some are ecstatic...happily in love Some are sad and alone Some are in relationships where they feel alone Some are spending their first year alone after a death or break-up or deployment. Some...

    I had lunch today with my ex father in law

    who I haven’t seen for a few months (we try to catch up here and there). I realize people find that strange, but the relationship with my in laws has been far more meaningful to me than the relationship with my own parents. It’s one of the reasons my marriage lasted as long...

    I have so much love to give,

    but no one wants to take it or share theirs with me. Why am I so hard to love? I take care of my man when I'm in a relationship and I can't even get an honest, "I love you."

    It is a shame that a guy like me have much of

    love in this heart. But can't have any love back from anyone. I think that people think of love like some goods to carry and when feel sick if it. They trash and buy another to keep going in life. I am a romantic &affection&helpful and most of all compassion person who just feel...

    Hope That One Day...

    Many times, I have been knocked down by love. Many times, I've been used and played by a woman who I really loved. I'm not afraid to love, because I can love with my whole heart, but I'm afraid of not being loved back. I'm not brave enough to love, but I'm brave enough to hope...

    I want to be loved, held,

    kissed (passionately), I want to be made to feel special and I want to be cherished. I don't want to be treated like some broken toy or yesterdays trash. I want to genuinely be loved, not something fleeting but something that will last. That is my biggest hearts desire.

    Let's be honest, we all want it!

    I would love it, as I never have had it. But can't imagine someone accepting me completely, like my imperfect body, my irritable personality, and my constant unsatisfactory! (Sorry for the big words😄)

    I think everyone wants to be loved.

    It's hard though, when you grow up different. You grow up feeling unloved and worthless and you just want one person to show you your worth. To be there no matter what, to show you love....someone who'll never leave.

    Am I Not Good Enough?

    A lot of times I question myself: what's wrong with me? What's not to love in me? What's so complicated about me? What's lacking in me? I torture myself into thinking these kinds of questions because people keep saying, "you're beautiful or you're pretty or you're kind"...

    Love is something we all desire, to have that one person who you will stay faithful to, who you will love with all your heart. I want that, and I don't just want someone to tell me 'they love me' I want someone to prove it for once in my life. To be with her, to share her...

    I'm as desperate to give love as I am to feel it. I don't care what you look like or what you've done, I need you. I need you because I want to love you. I want to hold you against my heart and allow you to see into my soul, to give you every part of me that you desire. To brush...

    Beauty is a useless trait.

    It's a curse. A life sentence that destines you to failed relationships, ignored genuine qualities, and sexual harrassment. All my life I've been told I was beautiful, and for a while I became really cocky after hearing it for so many times. But it subsided with time. Now, I...

    So in a recent post I pointed out a line
