    It Hurts

    I've been with this guy for four years. I even have a son with him. On tuesday, I decided I had enough of him trying to live off of me and I broke up with him. It hurts, though. Not because I miss him but because he's making my son suffer for my decision. He has not called...

    Part of me wants to say,

    "Finally, something that has been dwelling on my mind for quite a few months finally happened." Not that i'm happy that it did, I am actually rather upset that it happened so soon.

    This happened a long time ago.

    It's a long story, so bear with me. We were friends for 6 months. And we got together for 4 years. And then we broke up a little after celebrating our 4th Anniversary. I was really hurt. I kept telling myself to forget him. However, I could not. I was trapped! The...

    Thank God!

    Miserable years of my life and time spent with this suckubiss! The worst kisser I have ever kissed, a kiss-***, and a liar. Good riddance buddy!

    And He Still Doesnt Understand Why

    He's a good person. But, he's controlling. He wanted me to always have my phone on. He wanted me to change my clothes, my personality, and also my denomination, "for my good." What's worse is that he denies this as being controlling. After a deep discussion about our...

    He left me here. In a city

    that I don't even know -- miles away from home! Granted, I told him to, but it is going to be 7pm, who does that? Thank God for friends. Today has just been a roller coaster. I felt that he was being a bit different (a bit distant and inconsiderate, to be exact) today, but I...

    I Had No Choice...

    I'm not a selfish person. I'm the complete opposite but I had to do this for me. He wasn't giving me what I wanted and I wasn't giving him what he wanted. Everything was all about sex and $$ with him and it was all about love and fun with me. We couldn't meet each others needs so...

    His feelings for me changed somewhere along the

    way. I stayed very much in love with him and he started just wanting to spend less and less time with me. He became more distant gradually. It started with fewer phone conversations a week to none, then it went from a couple text messages every day to not hearing from him for a...
