    "nothing Takes The Taste Out Of Peanut Butter Quite Like Unrequited Love"-charles Schultz

    I don't even know him like that. We never talked face to face just over the internet and yet I felt like we were similar. Apparently we weren't that similar because he randomly stopped talking to me. Its even harder when I see him at school. I die a bit more inside. Not talking...

    We Ruined Each Other....

    I used to think that the motto never wonder what might have been was so true, but now I have come to the realization that sometimes things should be left in the past for a reason. I think I fell for my soulmate at an early age. I was fifteen and he was thirty. It was the wierdest...

    ...and I Need Help...

    I know it would be the best thing, and that his feelings aren't there anymore and that I am moving away, but for some reason I can't seem to convince myself of any of these things. I need help, badly, because I am also, through my neurotic actions, going to lose him as a friend...

    Nonexistent And Yet. . .

    I know everyone says when your young, you don't really know what you want. Maybe I don't. But…I do know what I feel. I never dated him, but we were very good friends–the best of friends. I really wanted us to be so much more–and I got those vibes that said he wanted it, too...

    Any guilt I've ever felt weighs heavily on my conscience. I'm not a bad person, but I have plenty of things to feel guilty about. And I can't let any of it go.
