I Am In Love With Someone I Can't Have

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,032 People

    I have been in love twice in my life.

    Years ago there was a girl I loved. But I had to love her from afar and never told her. We never dated because religion was separating us and we were friends. I knew I could not have her and did not want to destroy our friendship by even trying to pursue her since I knew that...

    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...

    The most beautiful girl in the world.

    I do not possess the words to describe her. I can barely think about her without being reduced to psychological stuttering. I am not good enough.

    Enough is enough

    I really need to get this off my chest as its tearing me apart. I've know this girl for over a year. We became good friends and spoke eveyday, and I quickly fell for her. I've told her I love her, many times. Her reaction is always to question me about it, she will ask me "why do...

    How Did This Happen??!!

    OK, here it goes....... I'm a married man, my wife (in my opinion) is very beautiful, OUTSIDE, she can be (not as often as I would like, or need) very sweet, kind, affectionate, fun, outgoing ..... But more often than not, she's just snotty, a bit rude, quick to snap.....I tell...

    He had the same feelings

    for me… Then he moved away… It's like he doesn't even care about me anymore. As much as I'm upset, distance is helping me get over him.

    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.

    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. ♡

    I miss you, I miss you,

    I miss you. We're struggling to even have time to even be friends at the moment. The odd text, the promise of coffee. Too busy, too complicated. I miss your touch, how you look at me, your huge sofa, how your kitchen feels like home. I miss your texts right up to my clothes on...

    Yeah me too. but it's more complicated

    than a "first world problem" as you might think. There are issues. social, moral, religious, and that I don't feel like explaining in detail. just really tragic things are the way they are.

    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 am thinking of you.

    As I often do. I often wonder if you think of me too. Did you sleep well? Did you eat? Are you happy? Well are you? I would love nothing more then to wake up to you every single day. Until my days are taken away. I often get caught up in my fantasies of you. Silly me for ever...

    Being sixteen and in love is inconvenient.

    Add in the factors that I am gay and she is not. She is 18 and leaving school and I am not, and finally the fact that we aren't close (so now that she's left school I have no reason to contact her.) It leaves me pretty much buggered. We had known each other for two years before...

    She is a youtuber and she lives in Japan.

    I've been following her 5 months since she started making videos, which is around April 2011. It hurts so much, I want to touch her, kiss her, hug her, talk to her. I don't only follow her Youtube, I also follow her blog so I can know how she is doing. It hurts a lot. I don't...

    Wish He Was Mine

    I've never been the type to be unfaithful to my husband. When I took the vows, I meant them wholeheartedly. However, he has become progressively more emotionally and verbally abusive over the years. It's very possible he has undiagnosed borderline personality disorder. Because...

    feels like years. Every single day I wake up and remind myself that he's not here, and it kills me. I might see him late next January, but even if I do, does it matter? He'll never love me in return, so what's the point? I wish he could see how much I care about him, and maybe...
