    It wouldn't be so bad

    if I didn't see him every day, and he gave me that same smile while I look into his eyes and pretend I'm not in love with him 😔

    I am... I have been having an affair

    for about nine months now. I hate admitting on here because I know what people will say, but I'm totally in love with him. I know that wasn't suppose to happen. He was just going to make me feel wanted and I was going to see him a couple of times a week for sex and that be it...

    We are both attached

    and happy but there is a spark I feel with her that is undeniable. This relationship can never happen and I just want it off my chest even if it is to a bunch of strangers that are pretending to be women. Neither of us have so much as hinted at our feelings but nothing needs to...

    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..

    He makes me happy, my heart beat fast,

    and hard, butterflies in tummy, he makes me feel. I havent felt alive in a while. He makes everything just that much better. Doesnt matter if it ends today, tomorrow, in a week, month, or a year. Right now he is mine and that is all that matters. Enjoy the time. ♡

    This lady is much, much younger

    than I am. Although I'm sure there are couples with this age difference, I don't see it happening in our case. So, after some long consideration, I find that while she is indeed attractive (looks a bit like Zooey Deschanel) and has a very fit, petite body, it is not those...

    My One And Only

    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...

    Well I had an affair.

    Woke up from a dream,

    I wish was real. Now I feel this heaviness in my heart, from getting a taste of what I wish could be. Only to have it ripped away when I woke up, coming back to reality realizing it will never be. It shouldn't be this hard, why can't let this go..

    In the ninth grade, I was starting a new school

    and was not prepared at all for meeting new people. However, the first day I walked into the doors of the band room and saw him sitting there, I knew I would love him forever. I even got to sit next to him when I stayed for the day. Ever since that day, I have cared for him and...

    It's a hard feeling to know

    that it won't happen yet knowing that loving them means you'll be there for them no matter what. I can't figure out how to shut off the pain.

    Bad religion...I could never make them love me

    without denouncing all I am for one or the other. is it unrequited love or am I just in the wrong place at the wring time? She could never love me if things stay the same way and He would never love me if I don't change. I don't know how to move on like I was a child sensing the...

    but it's still just the same. I am so in love with someone who stumbled into my life and quickly became one of my best friends in a matter of months. I confessed to him when it was just a crush, and soon after realized it was so much more than that. He makes me happier than...

    exactly, but I do know that it hasn't let up once ever since. Not even a little. We've spoken every single day for the past six months. Every morning, my first thought is that I want to see you. You make me laugh like nobody else. You're always kind and friendly and accepting...
