    Long Time

    Me and my ex are inseperable. We were only together for about 3 months and that was over a year ago and to this day we are still close as ever, just without the relationship side of things of course. He has been in relationships since we ended but has always spent more time with...

    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...

    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...

    Not Alot of People...

    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...

    It has been a little over a month

    Does part of me still love you?

    No. All of me still does. People advised me to make a clean break. Otherwise I'll never be able to "move on". I hate that expression. Treating people like commodities that can be disposed of when they've outlived their original purpose. And what exactly do they see me...

    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...
