    If They're Appropriate For Others, Then I Can Wear Some Too

    I think I can use a couple of these.  I like to think of myself as being one of the good guys, someone who is pleasant and good natured and will support you when things aren't going well. I'd be lying if I didn't confess to some of the less attractive qualities that I have, such...

    Warning: This Toad Is Just a Toad

    I can relate to this story in so many different ways.  I've kissed so many toads in my life, and tried and tried to change them into what I could see as their potential - not what they wanted.  I wish I could have made this realization about 10...

    Absolutely!

    I'm tired of stupid, selfish, angry, self-centered, and etc. and etc. people who waste so much of my time and energy... Most frustrating part is that you sometimes spend so much time contributing to the relationship and then months (if not years) later learn it was a total waste...

    Should Be Mandatory, I Think.

    Sometimes it's like I read people really well. I can usually smell a fake or a gossip a mile away. Some people, I click with, and I know that we will become close within minutes of first talking to them. But then, there are the others. The sneaky ones that really get me. The...

    You will be shocked when you discover how easy

    it is in life to part ways with people forever. That's why when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.

    If People Were Straight-up, There Would Be No Need

    WARNING

    Some people should come with a warning label that warns you that he is going to lie and cheat on you.  I have had a man cheat on me in the past and I had not a clue so a nice warning label would be nice.  Cheating women should have to wear them as well.
