I Am In Love With Someone I Can't Have

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,498 People

    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 already told the story.

    He's my former teacher and he's married. I'm attracted to really hot older looking guys. He's responsible and just seemed so perfect. But he has kids and a wife. It makes me kinda upset though cause I never got to know how he felt about me :/. And then there's all these other...

    Once again she came into sight,

    talks between us starting happening, The smoke of the past is still pricking my eyes, Her condition is unlike mine, Why is there a little sadness in this happiness? why is that same old world forming again? The world from which I had come far away, Its once again coming to view...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    One month ago I got familiar with a beautiful

    woman who lives near me. Her husband works on a ship and travels for 7 months offshore. We met each other while I was jugging in the park near us. We got familiar and began to exercise in the park together. I invited her to coffee a couple of times and went for walking. She...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    My One And Only

    Some Impossible Girl

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

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