    My gf just left me- we too were in a

    picture-book relationship and she told me "it's not working" when everything was so perfect and we were so happy. I need some help getting over her because I still love her- I honestly feel sick, any advice?

    Nothing worse then thinking you found the one

    and it's absolutely perfect and the only thing standing in your way is his mom. Being treated the way i was by his mom was so great breaking but never having his stand up for me was harder. I know I shouldn't wanna be with someone like that but how is it money and race always...

    It's been 3.5 weeks since he dumped me,

    and I'm feeling worse. I think everything is really sinking in. My ex and I will never get back together and probably never see each other again either. He dumped me on the phone after 3 years. He hung up on me mid-sentence and blocked my number and blocked me on Facebook. He...

    Completely Unexpected Break Up Is Leaving Me Lost, Confused, And Severely Depressed.

    Three years ago I briefly dated this guy Mike who was perfect in my eyes. We were 18. I had more experience with love and relationships at the time, and I was his first. When the relationship ended, I was sad but it was understandable that he wanted to experience life more...

    My life died when I moved to Los Angeles.

    For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to move out West. As a little girl growing up in the rustbelt capital of the world, I recall lying in bed late at night dreaming of tumbleweeds trailing along the streets of Tinseltown. I wanted to make the move after high...

    Turns out he never loved me.

    At all. It was just a ruse, because he liked to prey on hurting or sad people desperate for love. And unfortunately I fell into his trap. And I loved him. And it's hard to keep on, even though it's been a month, because the hole in my heart only got torn further.
