I Always Have To Say Goodbye

    I really don't like goodbyes, so I just made a rule years ago to say see ya soon and be gone. No use dragging these things out, it only makes things worse.

    Most Of The Time! ...

    Most of the time! My closest friends and relatives live abroad and we often have to leave each other!!! So, saying goodbye is kind of second nature for me... hurts every time too!!!

    Why Did It End This Way Again?

     The love of my life works half way across the country, and I'm stuck here. I've only seen him twice in the last 2.5 years, but I know he's the one... Anyway I had to say goodbye again last night. Hopefully our goodbyes will end soon.

    I Fall For The Ones That Leave

    I tend to fall for the ones I know have to leave and just end up saying goodbye and feeling like crap for it. Last year the guy I fell for as a freshman in high school (now I am a sophomore in college) came home and we just fell in love all over. But I knew he was only going to...

    I left my boyfriend thinking that it was just a simple vacation. We broke up over the phone. I didn't feel compelled to go say goodbye in person.

    Everytime I end a conversation with someone, I have to make sure I have the last word.  Especially on the phone.  I hate it when you hang up without having the last "good-bye".

    I don't want to. I never want to say goodbye.

    It's the hardest thing in the world to do. Goodbyes seem so permanent, so endless. I hate goodbye's because they hurt. A piece of me dies each time.

    I'm very cognizant that we may never see each other again. Eventually we all die--them and me. So as much as possible I want to ensure that if they die or I never see them again, I've said "goodbye." I'm also one of those people that always tells the people I love...

    Mean Nothing.

    The hardest part of any friendship is when it is time to say goodbye, and even though I wished I could make you stay, I know I got to let you spread your wings and fly. For life is a journey that needs to be travelled and I am certain you'd make it through, I just want you to...

    Goodbye My Best Friend.

    Goodbye my friend. I never had a chance to say it to you because you left me so abruptly. It was not here, but in real life. I will never forget you and wish things were different. So I say goodbye here and will always think of you daily. I wish I had said the right things to...

    "Love Ya Goodbye"

    That's my least favorite way to end a conversation/phone call/etc.  If I'm going to say "I love you," then I say "I love you."  My mom likes to use not responding as a way to remind us when she's mad at us, and that makes me angry and hurt...

    It is unbelievably annoying when people end a conversation, especially on the phone, by simply hanging up to phone.  In person, goodbye can take on many forms, but I still like to say, "goodbye."

    I don't like saying goodbye. Even if it you're going to see that person the next day, the word 'goodbye' just seems to final, like you're putting an end to it forever.
