    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...

    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...

    It's a hard feeling to know

    that it won't happen yet knowing that loving them means you'll be there for them no matter what. I can't figure out how to shut off the pain.

    Tv ****** me off with their interpretations of

    love stories. I try every chance I can to see the guy I love. Just to see him, maybe say hello. But it never works out right. Tv tells people that it's so easy, the person you love is everywhere you turn and you can't help but see them and be reminded of what you can't have...

    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...

    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...

    My One And Only

    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..

    .. Joe (because his name is Joe) and I am in love with him. Maybe its not even love. Maybe I'm just infatuated. But I can't stop thinking about him and I don't know why. He's not my type at all. He's with a different girl all the time, he smokes (sells weed), he drinks, gets...

    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...
