    It's been over a year

    since she left. She had become my best friend. She could build me up or tear me down with a single look. For 7 years I tried to make her happy. In the end, she told me I did not know how to love her. She was wrong...I loved her with all of my heart. I was thinking the other day...

    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.

    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...

    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 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...

    Do you ever feel like you have

    so much love to give - you could care for them, ask them about their day, listen to their stories, hug them, kiss them, tell them how great they are and how you love them more than anything in the world...you don't even expect to be loved back, all you want is a place in their...

    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...

    I can't stop thinking about someone I haven't

    seen in the past four years. We were just acquaintances for years and then one day, we (or I) had this moment when our eyes met. It was like falling into a bliss. I thought it was love. There was always those electricity, this electrical shock when I would look at him. I was...

    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.

    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..

    who doesn't want to be with me. I've decided to stop making myself feeling miserable because of this by letting it go. And I'm genuinely happy for him for finding someone who gives him the love he deserves and always wanted to have. I hope she will be able to make him happy...

    I wish I could just run and run and run...away from my desperate feelings. I don't trust them. They are really pathetic. I don't know how I would react if someone I barely knew came from the past and told me that they loved me. What would I say? I know I would be kind. But I...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
