    Not On Purpose...

    This is what happens when I have guy friends. Since high school, these guys would get heart- broken over me even though I repeatedly told them "I only like you as friend". They never listened and got hurt over it. I wasn't playing any games with them. I'd let them know "friends...

    Love - Sort of Found, Lost, Found, Lost, Found, and Lost Yet Again

    When I was in 9th grade, I met a guy who was moody, depressive, self-depracating - the whole nine yards.  I did not know that this Metallica-loving, black-clothes-enthusiast would become a part of my life over and over again. We dated not long after we met, and things were...

    I'm Sorry...

    I need to think what's best for me. Staying with you will only make me more depressed because you don't understand me. Staying with me will only hurt you even more. I hope you understand this.

    Shows How Much I Know!

    Mine happened many years ago, when I was 18. I was in the "loser" caste in high school - no friends and such. I had a fast food job (hated it), but a young lady who was three years my junior worked there as well. It became clear rather quickly she developed a bit...

    Didn't Let Go Without Struggle.....

    I'm usually the one that gets dumped. I have very little experience with breaking hearts. To be honest I'm not sure which is worse, being dumped or breaking up with somebody? When you get dumped you feel like s*** usually because you feel like whatever happened to make this...

    Regrets Will Kill Ya

    My regrets over the one heart that I had the power to break are reaching obsessive status. Back in the 1980's, I had broken up with a troubled BF, and had been fixed up with really interesting really good looking biker-guy (RIRGLBG). Being “into” bikers, this was perfect. He...

    I broke his heart, and I wish I could take it

    back. He's dealt with so much pain, I hate what I did, but even being drunk doesn't help me feel better. I miss him. It isn't a lonely miss, but a miss that you feel when you miss the person instead of the acts. I wish I could take it back, but it would only hurt him more. I...

    I thought about him all the time, wanted to be with him..but then when he took me on dates, all the attraction was lost. I realized that maybe the only reason I thought I liked him all along was because I found out that he liked me first. I felt sick every time I thought about...

    I Broke His Heart And Mine.

    Thinking back, he had really truly liked me, and had the potential to love me too. I was too scared, too nervous and extremely confused. He was my first boyfriend and I'm his first girlfriend. We were both 18. I hurt him so much with my fickleness and my inability to focus and...

    I broke the heart of the most unique,

    special individual that I've ever known. The only person outside of family to really love me for who I was. She was head over heels for me, and she taught me what true love was. She was strange in her own way, always against the grain, always resisting what people told her. She...
