Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,218 People

    Well I had an affair.

    Yes I'm sure there will be critics out there but until you walk in my shoes keep it to yourself! I did not mean to fall for him. I only meant to have some uncomplicated fun and substitute what was missing in my marriage. Well with receiving daily texts for over a year and a...

    Sometimes I look at her real hard

    while she's looking away...lost in her own thoughts... That moment is a metaphor of my life. I'm right in front of her, already hopelessly in love, waiting for her to understand, to acknowledge, if not respond to my feelings. Sometimes I cannot believe that she is not aware of...

    I'm in love with this guy

    and it's tearing me apart. We were friends, than we added the "benefits" and then he found a girl...a girl he probably doesn't love, but she's his girl and she can have him. I can't. Two years have passed and I tried to force myself to control my feelings. I always knew it was...

    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...

    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...

    Some Impossible Girl

    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...

    This person does not

    even know my existence, yet I am falling deeply for him. The way he smiles, the way he sings, and his bubbly personality makes me feel like an ice cube that's melting on a hot summer day. It hurts to know that he's in a different country, speaking another language, and carrying...

    and I still wonder if she thinks about me at all. But it doesn't hurt very much any more. I hope she is happy.

    My One And Only

    but I can't help it. He's so lovely and I have do much desire for him. I want to give into my lust and wrap my arms round his neck, kiss him and feel all of him. I find it weird after all I've been through to have those feelings. I go through phases where I avoid speaking to...

    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 him. We crave for handful of attention. We try to look the very best just for our loved ones...

    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...

    He changed his mind again.

    I felt so close to having him back and he changed his mind last second. I don't know what to do without him. I think he's been avoiding me and that tears me apart. I don't know how to stop loving him and I don't quite want to.
