I'm polyamorous, and live with my partner, and have a long distance relationship with someone I love dearly. I've been with my partner for almost three years, and we are in a very solid, happy place. My long-distance sweetie and I have had an intense Thing happening since this past April—so about five months, all of it online (we lived in the same town years ago, but have lived in different parts of the country for the last few years.)
Until this week, my sweetie had a primary relationship of their own. The breakup is, well, a breakup—messy, drama-ful, and rife with the mind-boggling emotional calculus of "had I only brought in [...]
I've seen other people get what they want because they go after it without regard for anyone else. While I know that won't make me feel any better, sometimes I want to do just that: I want what I want and I want it now, even if it will hurt somebody else.

Today Mommy said to take a long nap because I was reaaaallly tired. But I can also just go lie down if I want to, and close my eyes (like this). And I can snuggle with my animals: Girl Cat, Mommy Cat, Lambie, Lion, Squid, Gorilla. I might be lonely, but that’s okay, because then I just go to sleep! Maybe you can take a [...]
I had a huge falling out with my best friend. It’s a long story, and at the end of it, we hated one another. But, my question: I'm getting married next year and I don't have a 'maid of honor'. I have other friends, but not best friends. Should I try to repair my relationship with my former best friend? If not, how do I make a new best friend / potential maid of honor?
