Hard Lessons - The Relationships Series — a series by DB_Story
Hard Lessons - The Relationships Series are not my typical consensual romantic stories. Nor do they don't involve robots or other interesting creatures, although people are pretty interesting on their own. These relatively short stories are about the relationships that haven't ended happily ever after yet, if ever. They're about learning the painful lessons along the way that will eventually lead us to that one, special relationship we're all looking for - but this one may not be it. Here you'll encounter the nuts and bolts of making a committed relationship work, and the mistakes along the way. Lessons we usually learn by failing at them the first few times we attempt them. The problem is that most people never expose this side of themselves, making it hard to learn from their experiences. So take this chance to become a voyeur into other people's problems. It just might help you to learn more about your own.

Relationships 103: The Misdirected E-mail
True
It's the classic mistake of the Internet age. Perhaps it's classic because sooner or later it will happen to you as either sender or recipient. I was that recipient. It might as well have been a bullet.

Relationships 104: A Short Call Between Old Acquaintances
Flash
Sometimes we let our hopes for a reconciliation with a loved and lost one lead us into situations that end up only bringing more pain and rejection. Perhaps just having the courage to ask the right questions ahead of time would have helped avoid a lot of personal grief. Here's a prototype of such a conversation presented in an almost-Flash length. Any sex is off-screen. Inspired by a subplot on the 4/8/2008 episode of Boston Legal.

Relationships 105: A Karmic Wager
Drama
What happened when the female in Relationships 104 went to a renowned psychic instead of calling to reconnect with a male from her past. I'm calling this fiction, although it isn't really.
