    Not So Happy Ever After

    I started dating when i was sixteen years old and was in a relationship with him for about twenty months (we'll call him Chad). I broke up with him because we argued too much and we just were not getting along anymore, which happened in October 2012. I started a new job in August...

    I write this with tears streaming down my face.

    I ****** up! I'm taking full responsibility for my **** up! I've learned a valuable lesson however I lost a GREAT man in the process. I LOVE him with all my heart and I always will. He's unable to forgive me for not being honest which it's 110% my fault. I wish I could take...

    She Almost Killed Me

    I had a crush on this girl for a bit of time and finally got the courage to tell her how I feel. She gave me her number, we texted everyday and we were at the stage that's not officially boyfriend and girlfriend. We were sort of feeling it out. We talked more and more, had lots...

    So very deeply. You have moved on to a great

    life and I am left to pay the price for both of us. I just can't get over you. I am afraid I will live in misery for the rest of my natural life. It is impossible to put you out of my mind. My life was good before you, but you made it amazing. The cuts are so much deeper now...

    As I sit here and cry this has to be one of the

    hardest things I've ever dealt with. The love of my life and I are over and I couldn't be more sad. We have tried to make it work but he has grown so distant from me and is now saying he is unsure if he wants to be with me so I walked away. It hurts so much because everything I...

    How could you not remember?

    Just two weeks ago you told me you loved me every night. Every day. Every morning. Just two weeks ago you'd meet me in the media center every day. Three weeks ago you snuck past two principals to be with me for ten minutes. Two weeks ago you invited me to your moms house to...

    It’s been played, stabbed, cheated, burned, and broken…but somehow still works.

    Why does life have to be unfair?

    I fell in love with a guy that I though will love me the same way I love him but I was wrong. Ever since we met I've been so cruel to myself. I've been forcing myself to him even if I know that he don't truly love me. I did all my best only to find myself alone at the end.

    Yesterday, I went to my ex boyfriend's house to

    get my things out of his apartment. We broke up last month. Although we only went out for 8 months, those were the happiest moments I've ever had. We had disagreements, but we never fought. We were happy. Promises were made. Then when my parents came here, he started changing...

    The perfect girl you

    once loved is gone. Her faith is broken. Her body is covered in scars that will never fade. Her heart is locked up in chains so tight, even Houdini couldn't escape. Her crystal blue eyes no longer shimmer like the sea. Her smile is plastered on like a tattoo, so no one can see...

    Even when i realized i could not trust you,

    i still could not stop myself from loving you. Even when i realized you don't deserve me, i still felt like i deserved you. Because i had already given so much of me, and invested so much time and energy, that it just didn't seem fair to have to walk away with nothing.

    Don’t try too hard to bring the old romance

    back. It’s not worth it. Love should be effortless and mutual, and even if you try to force it, it’ll just slip away again, causing you more pain.
