I need to NOT like this person. Immediately.

I've started a real nice friendship with someone in a serious relationship. I can't help it but I feel like I'm starting to develop strong feelings. I need to stop and prevent these thoughts from going any further. [more inside]

15 short days...

Falling for someone that is leaving... in 15 days... should I tell them? I am not even sure if the feelings are reciprocal. If you have advice for the foolish and insecure, please see the ridiculous bean-plating that follows... [more inside]

Songs for Post-Breakup Blues

WhyDoesItHurtSoMuchFilter: Recently, my boyfriend of about 3 years broke up with me. Apparently not because of anything I did, but because he needs to "sort some stuff out" (which apparently means jumping into the arms of another man in under a week, but I digress). Unfortunately, I'm still madly in love with him. Oh, and we're roommates. Anyway, I'm looking for songs that I can buy from iTunes Music Store to express the mixture of sadness / betrayal / anger / hopelessness / listlessness / general malaise / etc. I'm feeling. Do you have a mixtape for the dumped? [more inside]
