    I have never actually felt love

    for another before. That is unless you count for family members then of course I've felt love there. To be able to love, cherish, hold, and have someone be the center of my attention is a scary thought. I've seen where love can be beautiful but also where it can be terrifying. I...

    Being Single And Realizing You Lost Someone You Could Have Had

    Being single sucks and it sucks even more when you come to realize too late that you let someone slip through your hands that you could have had. Then you always question yourself as I have been for the past 2 years why I didn't move on him when I had the chance. Hurts even more...

    Love Is The Other Obscene Four Letter Word

    Love has made me cry and hurt, so I just dismiss it as this amazing thing that makes you feel like you are high all the time. Those times are dead and buried. I used to be in love with love, but it has become a thing to fear. As much of a romantic I am, I can't still stop looking...

    Cautious

    I"m scared to fall for a guy and for him to love me back, only for him to find out something is wrong with me and then he wouldn't love me anymore. I guess that could also be "I'm scared of being hurt."

    Maybe it's because of the lack of romantic

    experiences in my life so far. The word "drama" comes to mind. I walk on the street and hear people yammering about their ex to friends. I see people argue. My friends who had been dating since high school, who had a wedding ceremony last year, are breaking up. I see there...

    I'm scared of falling in love with the wrong

    person. I'm scared of being hurt, humiliated, and rejected. I still have hope that one day I will find that person, but I'm scared about those things.

    When you tell me how much this man makes you

    feel.. I can see it coming from the sound of your voice and your worry teary eyes. The small things make you smile... I can see your mood change when your smile shines. You're honest with me... You are like the best friend I never had. I just wish I can share the same with you...
