There are very few emotional things in life worse than having the person you love tell you they are in love with someone else.
One those things is having the person you love tell you that not only are they in love with someone else, but they had been in love with them while you were together. (more…)
When Harry Met Sally says ‘no’. A huge, resounding no.
Meg Ryan’s character didn’t even like Billy Crystal’s character as a person, and they still got together. In fact, now that I’m really thinking about it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything, in media or in real life, that has indicated that ‘no’ could ever be a ‘yes’. (more…)
I have always been really normal. Don’t get me wrong, normal is great… if you want to be an accountant.
We’ve been friends for awhile. I like to think that we’re that really special type of friends. Super compatible, with an interesting amount of chemistry, with a potential future.

I’m sitting in his bed wondering if I should take off my clothes, or just wait until he comes back in the room. Is it sexy for guys to watch a girl undress herself? I’ve done it countless times in the mirror, but I’m pretty sure the effect could be off-putting without my usual background theme music. If I’m still dressed when he comes back then he might want to undress me himself and that could easily be really good or really bad. The potential awkwardness is making my underarms sweat. My heart feels like it’s going to burst out of my chest as I weigh my options. First time is kind of a big deal, but I really didn’t think it was going to be this hard… pun intended. (more…)
Snow has always been an enigma to me since I was six years old, running outside without a coat on to get a closer look at the brilliantly white spots of glitter falling from the sky. My mother followed me and scooped me up into her arms, holding me close from the wintery chill. (more…)
