And I love him likes he's right here with me, you're worth every mile between us.

My Best Friend Lives 900 Miles Away But He Has Never Left My Side

When I was 12, I ran a fan account on Instagram. One day, another fan account asked me for my kik in the comments of a post. He was a blonde haired, blue eyed amazing boy who loved wrestling as much as I do, and that's something I've never seen in my whole entire life. This boy became a staple in my adolescent life. I would spend hours staying up talking to him and hiding my phone from my mom so she wouldn't ask about the weird area code I was texting.

The more I talked to this boy, the closer we got. At first I adored the idea of being able to be whoever I wanted to, but it was so easy to let him see exactly who I was. I don't know if it was the safety of him not being able to see me when I poured my heart out or judge me when I cried over stupid things. He had the choice to leave, it would have been so much easier for him to, but he never did.

I was in a relationship for three and a half years on and off, and he never left my side. It wasn't lust, it wasn't infatuation, it was genuine love. True love was something that my tiny 15 year old self had not yet experienced. He never got mad when I ranted on and on about things he doesn't really care about, just listens to for my sake. He has never once pushed me to do anything I wasn't comfortable with.

With everything I've been through in the last few years, he has never left my side. It's like he knows exactly how much I need him and for some insane reason he feels the exact same way. I've had boyfriends, I've had people who were "supposed" to love me, who were "supposed" to do everything he does, but they didn't. They would try sometimes, but they would almost always make me feel bad for it. He never did that, he constantly reassures me I'm doing okay and has the most faith in me.

Do I know what our future holds? Not a clue. Am I counting down the days until I can see my best friend and give him the biggest hug in the world? Damn right I am.

To my amazing, amazing, boy...I love you so much and thank you will never be enough for everything you've done for me. I'll see you asap. Love Always,

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
