Taling of dreams, I sometimes dream that we men are all herded together in an enclosure with barbed wires and muscular women with whips are hitting us. Those who are sturdy are selected for breeding programs while the rest of us are thrown down a deep dark pit. I remember falling down this pit shout...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please

I confess to you my brothers and sisters that I have sinned. Don't ask me why - I have no reasons, only excuses. :( I could kick myself now, but that probably wouldn't do any good. :(

Shelsey,
With such a nice attractive size, your BF should not be bothered whether or not you talk too much, have a split personality etc etc. Just me talking like a man. :D :D :D
