Every time he came in, I tried to find an excuse to spend time with him but he was completely oblivious.
I have a bone to pick with Walt Disney - for a couple of reasons. 1. He has something against mommies. From Bambie to Snow White, Aladdin to The L...
Most people, myself included, tend to buy a bed from Ikea because we're too lazy to look anywhere else. This really doesn't make any sense though as our shopping shortcut requires us to construct a bed ourselves.
Loving a married man taught me that love is as fluid as our sexuality and gender. We can't control who ignites the spark in us but we can set the standard for how we should be loved. Regardless of our marital status, love is complicated.

In a good marriage we can be ourselves more with our partner than with anyone else in the world. We can have imperfections and still be loved.
What does a kiss do? Well, it may just do more than you think and everything you need.
You won't find your ideal partner by being who you think they want you to be. Now, don't get me wrong... you may get them in the heat of the moment.
