Question of the Week #311

How would you react if you were to learn that your mate's previous lover wasn't the same sex as you? I mean... that's in the past, right? She's not still seeing this woman anymore. So it should be no more of an issue than if she had been with other men in the past. Look, … Continue reading Question of the Week #311


Question of the Week #303

If we lived for centuries and even very old people were healthy and youthful, would you rather have a partner who was old enough to be world-wise and experienced, or someone younger and more naïve who was seeing most things for the first time? Why? I think I'd still want to be with someone who … Continue reading Question of the Week #303

Taylor – The Next Morning

Continued from last week... Taylor awoke to the sight of sunlight streaming through the living room curtains. She could barely open her eyes. They hurt; dry and burning from the overproduction of tears as she drifted off to sleep the previous night. She didn’t feel like moving. She was curled into a ball under a … Continue reading Taylor – The Next Morning

Different Seasons, Indifferent Friends

I don't want to say I'm super organized when it comes to my plan for blog posts, even though it might seem that way to some. Especially when I reveal what I'm about to reveal. I keep an open Excel spreadsheet that tracks upcoming blog posts and the dates on which those posts will go … Continue reading Different Seasons, Indifferent Friends

Question of the Week #280

While on a trip, your spouse spends a night with a stranger. If you knew they'd never meet again and you wouldn't otherwise find out about it, would you want your partner to tell you?

“You can’t break up with me! You’re my muse!” Brad shouted in the middle of the coffee shop, very nearly making a scene. “First of all, lower your voice,” Ginny said, trying to save herself from a little embarrassment. “Secondly, I’m your ‘muse?’ You haven’t written anything substantial in almost a year. And it’s been … Continue reading Muse

Question of the Week #277

When it comes to love, is intensity or permanence more important to you? Would you embark on a long and wonderful love that you knew would end in painful betrayal? Look... I'm sure I'm the last person who should be answering this question. I've never been in a position where I have loved someone and … Continue reading Question of the Week #277

Question of the Week #276

While walking in the park, you see a stranger and realize with absolute certainty that if you go over and introduce yourself, the two of you will fall in love more deeply than you even imagine possible. But you also know that in 6 months the person will be hit by a bus and killed. … Continue reading Question of the Week #276

Question of the Week #207

Do you enjoy sleeping in physical contact with your lover? Lover? Ugh... That word bums me out unless it's between "meat" and "pizza." Well, personally, for me, the only way this question would become relevant would be if I were to get married. And since I'm not married, nor have I ever been, it's all … Continue reading Question of the Week #207
