    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...

    Lol

    Damn straight :P I am in love with someone I can't have. But as long as he's happy, I'm happy too ^~^ And if you truly are in love with someone, that's all you should be concerned with. I know that it's difficult to get into that state of mind, but if they have found someone...

    I love my boyfriend deeply.

    He loves me so much and has sacrificed so much for me. I'm friends with many of his friends. He thinks I am perfection incarnate. But there is another. We met online years ago and became friends. About two years ago we got closer and friendship turned into love on my end. I...

    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...

    I am in love,with someone I cant have.

    it took me months to just even recognize the feelings, how can I love somebody I never thought I would even like? a complete opposite to what I always look for. Maybe it was the dimples. I kept myself in denial. It was impossible, I was in a relationship before, and I never felt...

    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...

    I am in love with my best guy friend

    who claims he is straight, I can't give up on my love for him, and I feel like if I get close enough, he will see he loves me too. All I can do is hope, Manet someday, we can be happy.

    I'm physically ill. These butterflies in my

    stomach have turned into hornets. It's almost an unbearable pain... something I don't think I can live with. You say you love me, but you're off looking for others so you can "find yourself". I love what I already found in you... but it's not good enough. I'm not good enough. I...

    I still think about her almost everyday

    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.

    There was a time when you made me feel like I

    was on top of the world. I'm still in love with you to an extent but mostly I just want to say you were the hardest thing on this entire planet that I ever had to get over.

    This is my dilema and the most obvious is

    that it is NOT a dilema but the feelings I have makes everything feel so wrong. I in a sense do know the person I am inlove with, but I can't have him so there's no question about that so the most obvious would be for me to move on with my life. For almost 3 years I just can't...

    I wish I had taken the chance.

    I had only seen her a for a week. We were in the same tour group. Those 7 days in Japan . But, it was only on the last day that I realised I liked her. I would look across the room at her, send as many signals as I could. But it was too late. When I returned, I soon realised...

    Of Love & Loss What is it,

    to dream? to feel someone's presence [after much absence], so strongly that it stays with you, long after you have awoken. to experience something so vivid that it's as if it really happened, in another time and place. What is it, to love? to be unceremoniously left, and...

    She is the love of my life.

    To her I would give my heart, and be hers for the rest of my life. But there is too much standing in between us. I'm trying my best, trying to hope. I haven't given up yet, in spite of everything. But there is so little hope left for me.

    The best feeling we could ever have is love.

    But the most painful would be still the same, love... Once you felt that feeling to someone, you'll be the happiest person in the whole world, but once you're broken, you'll feel like the world is like going down and crashing. I am gay and to be honest, it wasn't really hard...

    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...

    If I could relive this life a thousand times,

    I would go to a thousand different places, try a thousand different careers, and make a thousand different choices. And in the end, I would fall in love with the same magnificent woman every single time.

    Why do I keep doing this to myself?

    I get attached emotionally too easy, then they don't love me back because they are too old for me. I am honest and not 'just another teenager' when I say I love the guy who is 29 years old. I really do love him. He's a colleague of mine and he is the sweetest. I can't stop...

    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..
