Lost Confidence In Myself
I am a twenty-one year old boy. I loved a girl from my childhood, when I was thirteen. I knew she also liked me, but I was not able to tell her for a while. But, I finally decided to tell her. I had a chance this winter and I proposed her. She told me yes! I felt as if I was floating on the air of love. But, life had something else in store for me. She asked me to tell about our relationship to our parents. She told her mother, but I couldn't tell my relatives due to fear. She kept on forcing me, but I just couldn't get past my fear. I told my sister about this as my girl was her one of best friends. Then, I stopped receiving her phone calls and messages. Things were going well, but a phone call changed my life. It was of her friend who ruined my life. I am totally lost. I am not able to study or concentrate on my life.

Not That Innocent
Andrea looks like the sweet and innocent type; but when you see her in satin lingerie with her trademark "come hither" stare you'll know you're in for trouble!
Some models throw tantrums and behave like divas. But not leggy blonde Jessica Hall. The only things she throws are smiles for the camera.
Sharing Isn't Always Generous
When you and your sweetie start becoming closer, you begin to feel more comfortable sharing those embarrassing aspects of your personality and personal history. Like the time you ripped your pants dancing in high school and didn't know it. Or that goofy photo of you and your friends at a Halloween party. That's fine, but there are some things you don't need - or want - to share to be intimately involved.
Is Technology Taking the Fun Out of Love?
What is it about dating someone new and exciting that turns us into...well, stalkers? We check their MySpace or Facebook profile for updates (Who's that new cutie in their friend list? Are they sleeping together??). We Google them. We wonder why they haven't sent us an instant message, when they are clearly online.
