I Will Not Settle Again

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 66 People

    I will honour myself this year.

    Lesson Learned

    I did it once. I married him. I'll never do it again. I didn't know any better back then. I thought this was what love was. He loved me, and in my mind, he was the only one who ever would, so I had to marry him. Who else could possibly want me. I locked him in. I didn't...

    Why does it feel so good rubbing against women you're attracted with in a public setting? Especially when they just tolerate it.
