I Am Single But My Heart's Taken

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 68 People

    Sad But True

    I am single. Very single. But my heart never found its way back to me. It refuses to leave a man I once knew. It doesn't want to come home. Once it does I'm locking it in a cage so it can never get away again. It's so grounded.

    He Probably Isn't Even Intrested

    Ok, I can't really say my heart is taken, but it is the only thing that fit. Anyway, there is this guy that works at my favorite place to eat in the mall and I really like him, I just don't know if he's interested or if he's single. My friends say that he is interested, because...

    Our Wonderful Connection

    We met each other in university. I went to tell him something and he said to me: „We have phoned, haven't we?“ I was thunderstruck because my surname is such a common one. Actually the phone call was a few months ago. He couldn't mean that, but he did. From the beginning I...

    I'm Sorry Lord For The Thing I've Made It

    I have put my trust in humans for too long (year and a half), I will never be satisfied with conditional love and petty mind games. If I ever find an adult that I want to spend the rest of my life with, it will be because I remained true to myself and my beliefs. I follow Jesus...

    Work In Progress

    We met about 5 years ago, in elementary school. Since the school was small, we were in all the same classes, and became good friends. I had always thought he was cute, but I certainly wasn't ready to date. As the years went on, I still liked him, and I was pretty sure he liked me...
