    I Know I'm An Idiot But.....

    I married my ex when I was 16 and he was 20. We were married for almost 14 years before we divorced. There were so many issues in our marriage. He treated me more like he was my dad instead of my husband, but for all his faults he was the best friend I had ever had. In the late 9...

    ...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...

    We shouldn’t be together.

    Culturally, we are so diverse. Age, we are a decade apart. Location, across the world from one another. Relationship, too complicated to explain. But yet he found me. He promised me that he could make me love him. He promised me he was like no other. I didn’t believe him...

    I actually disagree with people

    who say Letting go is an another form of loving someone. I think only if the other person doesn't want it the other one should let go. But then again, who am I or who are we to tell somebody to let go. It is their heart, their soul. I am letting him go... But only it looks...

    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...

    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...

    I didn't know that I was in love with him.

    Then I broke up with him because of reasons outside our relationship. A mutual friend was being a real pain to me, and she was in total control of our relationship, because he listened to any "advice" she gave him. So we broke up, and it cost me all of my friends (the...
