    What's Wrong With Me?

    For months, I didn't know what she looked like.. the one who took him away. I agonized over it. Of course, I envisioned a strikingly gorgeous, thin blonde who looked like she just stepped off the cover of a magazine. Yesterday, I finally saw her. I'm far more...

    Maybe It's Just Me

    I have been in two serious relationships now and both times given myself totally to them. Put all my effort in and fought like hell to make them work when things have started to go wrong. I believe when you are in a relationship you have to give it everything you have otherwise...
