I've never been anonymous online before. (I'm super Googleable.) Maybe someday I'll switch this to my real name and see what happens. The people here are the best.
srsly thought the Good Charlotte article was called "DEATH IN A SMALL TOWN" for a second there, which was confusing but also somehow compelling? Also, I used to find all four of those men, like, blisteringly attractive. MIDDLE SCHOOL WAS A WEIRD TIME FOR US ALL I'M SURE
Once upon a time, a woman read an article online that actually made her feel better about herself and life in general. And then she read the comments after it and there wasn't a single horrible, nasty, hateful one in the bunch. The comments turned out to be as life-affirming and wonderful as the article. The woman smiled.
Once upon a time, a woman almost died of a previously undetected genetic health condition. She survived, and she married her college sweetheart and eventually they had a lovely child. She had a rewarding career, a nice house, lovely friends and a family that didn't drive her crazy (most of the time).
One day she sat down and really, truly accepted the physical limitations her health condition imposed on her. And she stopped being bitter about all the things she couldn't do, and she rejoiced in all the things she could do. And she recognized and celebrated all the blessings in her life, and was content.
Once upon a time, there was a young woman who liked to sleep around. She had many positive and consensual sexual experiences, and lots of supportive and like minded friends. Most of her partners were fun and respectful. Although she had several pregnancy and STI scares, her health care providers were lovely and never shamed her. She formed many healthy and mutually beneficial relationships, stayed in touch with several sex partners who are now good friends, and later married a gentleman she fucked on the first date.

My girlfriend and I have decided to tell people we met on ChristianMingle, even though we met in a bar.

Over Memorial Day weekend, I married a guy I met on Nerve 5 years ago. It wasn't until we had all our friends and family in the same room that we realized how many non-internet meeting stories we'd made up, back when that seemed like the right thing to do. Now we just tell people, because, you know, INTERNET WIN.
@Scandyhoovian My co-worker and I are fond of saying "I noped the eff out of there" whenever possible.
My mom keeps a little picture of Robert Redford taped inside her day planner. She covers it with a post-it note so no one sees.
My roommate and I simultaneously squealed "I SEE PENIS!!" during that one very sexy, very disturbing scene.
