    He's my dear friend. We met

    and I knew a great friendship would form. We are the same age, but he got married young, and I am still single. I wish we had met under different circumstances, I wish we could've had a chance together. He will always be a dear friend of mine and I know he cares deeply for me. I...

    He is everything to me.

    .. But I can't have him cause he is taken. It is the worst feeling ever especially when he is flirting back with you.

    My boyfriend is going into the army in August

    and has suggested we break up before he goes. He said its because he doesn't want to get distracted and not be able to concentrate because he will be worried about me. He's planning to move abroad when he leaves the army too and hasn't mentioned me at all in his future plans. We...

    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...

    I am definitely not in love with him,

    but I think he's close to perfect. He's amazing at practically everything, but it's something that will never happen.

    Broken Hearted

    How do you make the hurt go away???? I can't pretend to be strong when I know we'll eventually have to work together. Finding another job with the perks I have is impossible. I can't stop thinking about him. I don't have anymore strength to pull myself out of this one!!!!!!!

    He came out of nowhere.

    I didn't expect it. I tried to say no, cause I knew I'd regret it. I hate myself everyday for believing, that he actually cared for a girl like me. A crooked smile, and an ugly face. How could any guy fall for that? They can't. So I hate myself, for being this way. He broke my...

    He's married, they are in an "open" "poly" relationship. Before I was moved within the company we talked most everyday, we were always finding excuses to go into the back room just to be near one another.. But now that I've been transferred I feel as though I never hear from him...

    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...
