    She's like my best friend.

    . I really love her and I've known her since 8-9 years old. Ugh I wish we could be together but ruining that bond is not worth how far we've came and grown.. 😕 I just want to know would you rather have a relationship or friendship ?

    This section is becoming my most "popular"

    experience area, but I suppose it's easier to talk about something as I am experiencing it as opposed to in any other way. Today was, as usual, lovely. He had kept his last favourite sweet / candy for me and said "I want you to have my last sweet!" I was touched, he fetched me...

    Want to know something truly tragic?

    In my work I have a two close female friends I can trust 100% with anything I tell them, one of them I feel I cannot trust them with this, not in the sense she would tell anyone but in the sense I respect and adore her that much I couldn't bear to make her judge me in a bad...

    The Perfect Long Distance Guy

    I met a wonderful guy on MSN last year. We have so much in common, we make each other laugh. When ever I get to spend time with him whether it is on the phone or web cam I always feel happy to see his smiling face. There are times when I just want to be with him so bad, and...

    To a special someone.

    .. It hurts. I cant help it but I think you are wonderful, but I realise now that you don't necessarily feel the same. I know I am younger than you but I know how I feel. I will wait for a while (as you suggest) and see what happens. In the mean time think of me and the good...

    It has been a comfort,

    being a member of this EP group, there are so many people in a similar boat and sharing a similar pain it is truly comforting. Emotions are such a complicated mess to figure out sometimes. Three years ago I was moved in my office to a new area, I knew no one and I was...

    My Heart Burns With A Fire That Should Have Never Been Lit

    We knew each other since we were in our teens, but we hardly ever spoke to each other. Because of social networking sites, we "met" each other again a few years ago. In about September of last year, we started talking more and agree'd to see each other as "friends with benefits...

    Frustration In Love

    About 3 years ago, I started dating a man (let's call him Abe) who I thought to be perfect for me. I actually moved out-of-state just to be with him. Everything was wonderful, and I was happy. Immediately upon moving in with him, I found a simple part-time retail...

    I've been playing tennis since I was in elementary school, I had a friend, I never had a crush on him before, he was just a friend of mine. When I was like 15, I started to know how to love someone. I talked to him much, but we both thought that we're just a friend. We hung out...

    Update so this guy I was talking about earlier

    he says his relationship is solid but then he messages me all day. He walks me home from school. When I tell him I'll leave him alone to be with his friends he won't let me. He looked me up on fb before I even knew him well enough for him to know my name. He asked for my...

    I was talking and getting to know someone,

    I started liking him. Then he tells me he is in a relationship. I was so embarrassed for flirting with him. I didn't know he was in a relationship. I still like him, but now I know he's off limits. :(

    He lives in a whole other different continent!

    It sucks not to be around him or get to talk to him all the time because of the difference in time. It hurts to wait for him but I guess you get stuck with that when you fall. Cause I've fallen pretty hard.

    I've known him for about a week

    and *******.. he's just so amazing. His mind draws me in even more than his appearance. He's one of those people that you just want to get to know more and more until you know everything there is to know about them. He has goals, and dreams, and fears, and he's just so...

    Falling For A Fantasy

    It's so easy to get caught up in the fantasy....the idea of someone. Even when you've never seen their face, felt their touch, or heard their voice, their words can illicit feelings of desire and longing. Your mind becomes overwhelmed by your curiosity about them. You wonder...

    Two Travellers On Separate Paths

    A couple of months ago on a night out, I met a guy. We were both drunk and just got talking. He seemed nice, attractive, laid back and quietly confident (not obnoxiously so). He said he had to go, so I hugged him goodbye. He walked out, then came back and asked if he...

    Sometimes life just isn't fair.

    I broke up with my boyfriend of six years at the end of December. Things had been slowly breaking down for over a year and the stress of it all had completely put us at odds. We were once the couple others aspired to be, and as I sat staring into his eyes and asking myself why...

    I hate the feeling of sadness.

    It settles over you like a dark cloud. It clogs up everything in you like you're being smothered. You're helpless against your own emotions. I really can't put blame on anybody for this agony. Watching him walk away was the last thing I thought I'd be doing. I love writing...
