    I fell for my schoolmate

    when I was in 8th grade. He comes from a rich family while I belong to a middle class family. I got the courage to ask him out.....on valentine's day. messaged him on Facebook... and all he did was 'block' me. After this I might never fall for anyone...lost all hopes.

    I am in love with the idea of being loved.

    What makes life worth living is finding the purpose of life. Realist vs. Romanticist One cannot rule the heart, if the heart skips a beat at the sight of their presence can one therefore ignore and pretend that love does not exist. Is it easier to walk away from their lives...

    The reason is simple.

    I don't belong in the kingdom of love. Love isn't something my body, my mind, my thoughts are meant for. My personality is too complicated and sometimes uncontrollable. I'm not cute or pretty or beautiful. I'm not attractive at all. I'm a monster. And falling in love is my...

    I'm scared of falling in love

    and I've never been in love. I always run in relationships but now I just want a serious relationship and for him to tell me he loves me. To mean it and prove it to me.

    I'm scared because I don't think it'll turn out

    alright because that means being willing to spend a lot of time with the other person and I've got things I want to do, I need my own time... a lot of it, so my partner may get bored of me

    I'm actually terrified of love,

    I'm terrified at the fact you could be in love that much with a girl that no matter what you do you couldn't stop yourself from getting hurt, you have no control whatsoever, and let's face it who likes not being in control? No one

    but with him it's different, it's like everything at once is okay in my life. Granted we have had a bumpy road. But I'm not so scared anymore, his the one I want on good days and on bad days. 😔💞

    Yes. It's scary to fall in love.

    But what if... one day the right person comes in your life and you missed the chance to be happy with the "One". Is your fear of falling in love more important than finding happiness in the end? I don't know the answer either...

    and my chest would automatically rise and feel open. I felt so safe and loving and it felt like being in love. I have experienced a bit of his touch and his kind words, his admiration. I haven't felt like this in a long time, if ever it was quite like this. But then I realized...

    At the end of the day,

    it left me hurt. It came in with nothing but when it gone, it left me hollow, hurt, stupid; more than I thought I am. That's love. I thought it was a sincere heart so I adored it. But happy ending ain't real. Better this way.

    Your first love is special.

    It's unforgettable. You know why? Because you have yet to experience heartbreak. Your heart was a virgin to love up until this point. Once you've loved, there's no going back. It either ends up as a happily ever after or as a broken heart. But hey, everyone knows those happily...
