    If he isn't interested in me,

    then I should at least be able to be interested in someone else,. Unfortunately, I think it would be really unfair to anyone I might date or sleep with because my heart isn't fully in it. It would also be unfair to me, because I think I'd be settling. So, logically I understand...

    I Think It May Be...

    I think my boyfriend may have broke up with me. He thought I was cheating with someone else. I don't cheat! I was grounded! I didn't do anything wrong, not that I know of. I guess people are like that. They act like they love you, they act like they'll be there forever. Then they...

    Starting to feel that way.

    I loved and lost someone many years ago. The truth is, I wanted to get married,have children,buy a house etc. All that grown up stuff you're supposed to do! But she just wasn't ready. And the more we discussed it. The more it became clear she never would be. For me at any rate...

    You Didn't Hunt My Heart.

    Feelings arent facts, but its a fact that I feel this way towards you. Ā Loved yet abandoned. Ā Fullfilled yet empty. Ā Torn between logic and passion. Ā Living off the fantasy of love instead of the truth of reality. Ā U pull me close, but you dont love me. You dont know me to...
