    I miss being in love.

    I miss those feelings you get in your stomach. I miss feeling like I'm the only one that matters. I miss holding someone. I miss those long all night conversations. I miss being able to look at someone and have them know what I'm thinking. I miss having faith in someone. I want...

    Transparent to the world,

    void of substance I wait in joyous agony for my lovers return. Moments pass in hopes she will call, write, or scream me into existence once again. Her lips colored; nay painted just for me, glossed in transcendent beauty. All that I am or ever will be is defined within her...

    I make my crush little cards

    for almost every holiday with a sweet message and usually a gift. I don't get anything in return but seeing him smile when he reads it is all I need. =)

    "One day, whether you are 14,

    28 or 65, you will stumble upon someone who will start a fire in you that cannot die. However, the saddest, most awful truth you will come to find - is that they are not always with whom you will spend your life" Saddest words. I know this feeling. Can anybody else relate...

    But I haven't been able to hold on to anyone.

    I just want someone to hold me and tell me everything will be alright, someone to make me feel like nothing else matters

    Why Do I Keep Choosing The Worst Possible Partner?

    By the time you've worked with hundreds of couples, you start seeing common patterns. Here's the big one: We take the most difficult relationship of our childhood... and we marry it! Ever wonder why so many children of alcoholics marry alcoholics? Ever wonder why so many abuse...

    pondering moment #568: I sometimes think books

    romance is. You want to make her feel like she is the only girl in the world and just another girl. To many girls give it up way to easy. Yes I love sex. It's amazing but no honey you need to treat me like a lady and once I know you are right I will rock your world every night...

    Have you ever missed someone

    so much that it actually makes you physically sick? Like sick to your stomach? Never believed in love at first sight, but I'll tell you, it exists. The second I locked eyes with that woman, I felt something I never knew existed within me. Never really knew how she felt about me...

    Beat me. Punch me in the face.

    Bite. Kick me. Hurt me. Do anything so I can see you bother. If love hurts then nothing else I want just pain. If love is a heartache then give me a big one so I feel alive.

    The Perfect 4th Of July (my Scottish Lover)

    It was a very warm 4th of July. The gentle winds that always blew in the valley swept over me as I sat under a giant oak tree. With the rivers edge only a eight feet away, I sat staring at the water flowing down stream. I was thinking of how I was going to continue on....Marriage...

    She's beautiful with blonde hair

    and blue eyes, she loves soccer and track like me, we have good chemistry, and we had lunch together. We met because my job sent me to her job to help out with some things. Unfortunately, she's 19 and I'm 24. I believe that's a significant age difference...damn it

    I've had this same problem

    now with my last few crushes. In the beginning, our texting would be fine. She would reply within a reasonable time, but as time went by, she would get worse and worse at replying until she wouldn't even reply at all. Is it a girl thing? Maybe it's me. I have no idea. I'm a...

    Yes I'm a hopeless romantic

    but I have a really dirty mind. Which gets pretty boring if you ask me. Sometimes I just sit there and think what it would be to have someone and wish I could have someone I could play around with and love but then I remember I don't want the bullshit.
