Almost Falling For the Forbidden

#TCFNoteToSelf He was dorky and smart, awkward but well-meaning, and he made me laugh even at the most severely inopportune moments. He was seven years older, mature and ruggedly appealing. Later, he confessed that he’s also very much married. I never expected I’d find myself attracted to someone I just met, much less to a married man. However, if there was ever something that was consistent with life, it is this: there will always be unexpected turns, and they’re not always the good kind. What you choose to do during these turns determine exactly just what kind of person you...

She Knew It Was Over Before It Even Ended

#TCFNoteToSelf She knew. She could tell by the way you no longer held her hand the way you used to. She could tell by the kisses that used to be sweet expressions of affection, but had become routine and obligatory. She could tell by the miniscule details that you took for granted, but she kept her eyes on. She knew. She dreaded it, but she knew. She knew she no longer held your rapt attention as she once had.

If You Want To Know Her, Read What She Writes

#TCFNoteToSelf Small talks and idle chats were never her thing. She would usually be polite but reserved, and never really initiated what she considers as a pointless social etiquette. When backed in an inescapable social setting, she’ll say all the appropriate responses and all the superficial comments, but these will never amount to anything more than a tiny scratch on her surface. She reserves her words for the people who matter dearly to her. You’ll only ever get her fully-engaged if you really talk to her -- if you spend some time with her to dig in deep and pick...

I’ll have you know that the jokes are likewise...
