I rounded a tropical corner to see you making unabashed goofy faces at a parrot and I grinned! I'd spent the last half hour bobbing and cooing at all the birds while my...
It usually takes being dumped several dozen times before a guy like your boyfriend starts to do the hard work of unpacking and dismantling his assholery.


Hey Y'all! The reason I want to share this with you is because I want to give you some hope! You CAN find a Love that is beautiful and easy, and be passionately and madly in love at the same time! I think we struggle unfortunately because it's part of the human condition to seek love. Because of this intense need we often agonize over relationships that do not serve us. We try to make things fit that just don't. We experience pain, drama, ugliness and often time and time and time again. I can say for the first time in 41 years I have found something with someone that fits so perfectly! There is absolutely no need to change her. She doesn't want to change me. We embrace each other and enhance each other's lives. There hasn't been one single episode of any drama. It has felt so right from the start. Its been several months!!! Not even one grain going against the rest! Hey it took me a 12 year marriage, and multiple relationships that lasted anywhere from three months to three years and dating men, women, and trans folks (I am pretty open minded) to find her (this). AND not gonna lie, lots of work on myself. Anyway please keep your heart open despite your wounds. AND if you are finding that you just keep coming up a brick wall with your current love... do them a favour and yourself. Let them go, put your energy into your own life and see what happens! Peace :)

So what if my husband makes a lot of money? Everyone keep the comments to yourself. I didn't marry him for his money. We dated in University when we were two broke students. I didn't know that he would become a Partner in a Law Firm. It just happened. Saying that "It must be nice having some a rich husband while the rest of us have to work" really hurts. Or saying "Must be nice to stay at home and have nothing to do" hurts too. You don't know how we struggled for years in University and after while he was in Law School. We spent years eating ramon noodles and macaroni and cheese because that was all we could afford. We are an equal partnership and it doesn't matter who makes the money. I look after our 3 young children and the house so its 50/50. I have a degree just like him but chose to stay at home and raise our children or I could very well be a Lawyer or a Doctor. So keep the comments to yourselves.

is just going to make you better and better baby. I'm waiting. And when the marriage fails and you are finally available, I'll be there to scoop you up and swing those sweater puppies around like turbines, and we can fly off into the sunset together.

People make mistakes, it's in our human nature and beneficial to our growth. I made a mistake when I rejected someone I was dating. It was a whirlwind, intense love affair, but the timing was not right. I know that I should have acknowledged her value to me at the time. Half a year later, I do, everyday. When I think about how loving, caring, inspiring and selfless she is, I fall more in love. Yes, it sucks. Would she take me back? It's possible, but I'm afraid she won't and I think that confirmation might just crush me. I showed her that I didn't deserve her and that's what I gotta live with. I live each day trying not to look back, but still aware of what I've done wrong and right. Maybe, just maybe, if I meet someone as amazing as her, I won't make the same mistake again.

I know I can’t tell you this because of our situation but I need to get it out. We were friends 30+ years ago and I wanted to be with you then, but we never were able to connect. Now that you’re back in my life again and I find that I want you more than ever. I find you even more attractive now at 50ish than ever before. We get along so well like we’ve been best friends forever. I can’t stop thinking about you girl. I want to take you on my Harley and ride into the sunset. Unfortunately I am still trapped in a loveless affectionless marriage. My marriage could be over soon but I am afraid I will lose you to someone else as a woman like you won’t stay single forever. Never seems to be the right time for us

My sibling has a beautiful mind: he is a Renaissance Man in every sense of the word. Bright, intelligent, funny, articulate, musical, artistic, has an acting bend, can do math/compose music...he was always the person I wished I could be. He then married and is now drunk often and takes anti-depressants. I don't believe there is a shred wrong with him. He was always a 'feeling' person, but I don't think he needs to medicate in any way; he has skills, not a 'disorder'. (He hardly ever used to drink and never took meds before) I just think he married a booger. And that she is bringing him down. Maybe I am being a(n over-) protective older sibling. Crying shame really. Guess maybe one day he'll see what I see. His talent lies in his sober, real self! And that our personal happiness is deeply affected by who we choose to marry.

Im almost 30 and I wish both my parents would stop revolving their damn world around me every god damn second of their life. I'm so fuckin sick of being the center of their attention my whole damn life. times when I just wanna be invisible they'd keep shining their spot light onto me, when I move away from it then they'll just keep chasing me until I become frustrated and inevitably crack, and then of course they'd get pissed off at me for not reacting the way they feel I'm supposed to react.

After an hour of uncomfortably holding in gas whilst in a public arena, I was able to escape to a side street. There was no one on the sidewalk, so I just let it rip. Then I noticed 2 people in a car not 5 feet from me. All the windows were rolled down and the area was otherwise silent. I paused in mortification, but then realized they hadn't heard me at all! VICTORY! Knowing I had passed loud, uncomfortable wind that close to other people kept me smiling the rest of the walk home.
