    He's Become My Bad Habit...

    I've had an on/off relationship with a guy for 8 years. From our first meeting we lit sparks off each other, passionate with lust and even 'GRRRRR you're so annoying!' He's one of those people that knows how to push a persons buttons to see how far he can wind them (me!) up but...

    We're Complex

    I guess we're both kind of complex human beings. I have BPD and can't deal with being close to people. It took me a full five months until I could really ever touch my girlfriend in a sexual way. It took me eternities until I first kissed her. It took me months until I was able...

    We aren't really together.

    He told me he loved me. I really love him too. We aren't together yet though I feel like we both have had issues in our past relationships. I think this is the best way. I met him online about 2 weeks ago. He lives close, and I am pretty sure that I saw him somewhere before, but...

    Someone Help Me

    Come to think of it, even the beginning of our relationship was bad. When we started talking again, my girlfriend was with her ex at that time. You flirted with me to the point that i fell for you and I confessed. You told me that you liked me too. And we kissed three days later...

    Not A Bad Thing

    Complicated is one word you can use for it, but it doesn't bother me. I've embraced this relationship for what it is, and it makes me happy. It is unconventional, but I've accepted it in my heart, and that should be enough. And as for what the future holds, I guess we'll just...

    I met him back in fifth grade,

    and we didn't like each other at all. We went through most of middle school ignoring each other (he's one of the more popular students, and I tend to shy away from big groups) except for a few brief interactions. Now we're both high school freshman, and I rarely see him anymore...

    I would. As much as we right and argue and disagree and never see eye to eye. And it's like we been together almost two years, what a waste of time if this doesn't work out.
