    Kisses

    There is nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shore no matter how many times it is sent away......... ...........and so love never expires in my heart no matter how many times I tell my soul to turn away.

    I'm in love with this guy

    that works all the time. So much so that he misses his family events. We only see each other once or twice a month, but I love him. He loves me too but he says he's not in a position to make me happy the way he wants to. He's on a grind so he can retire in a few years @ age 45...

    Would it make any difference

    if I said I loved you? Because I do, and no physical distance or social barriers are going to change that. The only thing that matters is what changes between us should I ever tell you that I love you. Would we be better for it, or worse? Or does it even matter anymore? If...

    I've known her since high school,

    but she was taken and I was a dork. Despite that, she was always nice to me and treated me like a person. That's what made me start falling hard. But I knew I never had a shot. After I graduated, we kind of lost touch but I never forgot. She graduated the year after and went on...

    So some background: on the 5th of May 2014,

    I fell in love. Head over heels, inexplicably painfully madly in love with the most beautiful girl in the world. Unrequited love, not because she rejected me, but because I didn't tell her. For numerous reasons, in the closet not wanting to come out yet, she was older and also...

    It's An Innate Tendency

    I do believe that human beings tend to gravitate to those who we can't have. Especially when we feel connected to a person and want them in our lives for the long haul. It's an interesting thing, because those who fancy us and give us attention, we tend not to want.I know that in...

    And its not the cushy nice feeling.

    Its screwing me up in ways I have never thought was possible. I hardly eat or sleep. And when I go to bed, there is this block in my chest, that wont let me cry or even breathe. I dont know how to move past this. Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. I was in a...

    He's 27, I'm 20. He's flying off to New Zealand,

    I'm flying off to Neverland. Haha. Damn. Two years of concealed feelings, and still nothing has changed. Why can't the universe be a little kinder and just let us be together? I tried shifting my attention to someone else, but I always end up failing. 😔

    We are both attached

    Hello, I'm posting here

    because I really don't know what else to do. So me and this girl have been friends for about 4/5 months now. We met through drama school. I'm 22, she's 19. We met properly at one of our after-play-parties and I thought we hit it off right away. We've spoken in person and online...

    We were once close friends.

    ..now? I don't even know if he sees me as a classmate anymore, whether he sees me as nothing... With my emotions died away, I can't feel the hurt, the pain, the torture. I can't feel fully happiness, excitement. I can't feel fully frustration, nervousness. I can't feel the burn...

    It sucks doesn't it. Liking someone you can't

    have.. Seeing them everyday, but knowing that they'll never be yours.. It's the worst feeling, cause all you can do is dream about and wish for them, but never have them..

    so much love to give - you could care for them, ask them about their day, listen to their stories, hug them, kiss them, tell them how great they are and how you love them more than anything in the world...you don't even expect to be loved back, all you want is a place in their...

    I had a one night stand

    that turned into a love affair that lasted a year. I believe I found my soul mate but I had to end it so I could give my kids the family I never had. It's been 3 years and I still think about him everyday.

    I am desperately in love with someone I can

    NEVER have. I look up at the sky and think over and over again- why do I even exist in this selfish, cynical world? Tears of frustration and anxiety always well up in my eyes because of her. We crave for handful of attention. We try to look the very best just for our loved ones...

    Once I had thought that I'm special.

    I'm someone lovable. I'm normal... But I'm not. I am nothing. I'm unlovable in a romantic way. I'm a weirdo. He was my savior as well as my destroyer. He helped me stand up again. He helped me everytime I needed him. I thought...Oh I was silly, so stupid, thinking that he cares...
