    My best friend and I have been on

    She Loves Me!

    I remember when we broke up because I couldn't sleep more that 2 hours a night the entire week leading up to it.  I was terrified of it.  At first I thought it was because she was so gorgeous and a just a bit "out of my league," and I didn't want to be alone...

    It has been a little over a month

    since our break up. Everyday is hard but everyday is getting easier. I was best friends with my ex before our relationship, and we decided we NEEDED to be best friends after our relationship. The reason we needed to be best friends is because we have invested so much in each...

    It’s been 10 months.

    It still hurts. It is still able to tear me apart. It’s still able to cut me in two, and make me shudder at my frayed edges. But I won’t tell you. Today I read something beautiful about love. And I couldn’t help thinking of you. And I couldn’t help crying. And I felt...

    I am best friends with my first love. We didn't work out because my family didn't approve of him and I was too young to stand up to them. We stayed close. I dated other guys. He dated other girls. I fell in love again and got married. He fell in love again and got heart broken...

    Work Relationships.. *shudder*

    I remember the first day I saw him.. The most PIERCING blue eyes I had ever seen in my life. It was his first day on the job.. I remember the look on his face when he saw me walk in. I'm the only woman who works there. I'm by no means gorgeous, but when I'm the only woman you...

    Why Do Others Have Issues With You Being Friends With Your Ex?

    I have been best friends with my ex since soon after we broke up 7 years ago.  We had been and lived together for almost 12 years before the split and I realised from soon after the break that I was mouring the loss of the friendship more than the loss of our relationship...

    This Was Me....

    I used to be best friends with my ex-boyfriend.  We hung out at least twice a week.  At first it was okay.  I felt like I wasn't being affected.  Just friends.  Really.  For one year.  Not physical at all in the beginning.  Later maybe a...

    Yesterday he told me

    that maybe he convinced himself he doesn't love me that way anymore because he had to, in order to cope. I told him he is the strong one, because he was able to believe it and I couldn't lie to myself. Yesterday felt like drowning with him. Why is love so hard?
