It Happened To Me: I Love Reading It Happened To Me's

Not feeling like doing the whole "seeing people" thing this weekend? Read or write an IHTM instead!

"It Happened To Me" was born on the pages of Sassy magazine the same year that I was: 1988. Maybe it has someting to do with our shared birth year, but we really get along. Yes, I work at this website, but I still find myself curling up on rainy Saturdays for a serious IHTM binges where I eat popcorn, light some Nag, and blast Joanna Newsom.

Here are some of my favorite IHTMs, in no particular order at all.

My Sister is a Sociopath

His Crazy Ex Won't Leave Us Alone

I Told My Boyfriend I Was Born a Boy

My Husband is HIV+ (A Love Story)

What I love most about these pieces is that they don't always (or even most of the time) come from people that consider themselves writers; they come from people that want to share their stories. Whether you're trying to get your writing career going or you just have a story to get off your chest, you should write one. You can remain anonymous without a problem, just ask us. Please submit your pieces to We can't wait. Thanks, boos!
