    "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...

    And I know I should because he's not a good

    person at all. He's always telling me what I can and Can't do like he controls me. What he does is uses sex to control me because he knows I like it. I've tried many times to leave but I just couldn't do it and I don't know if it's because of the sex or because I actually do...

    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 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...

    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 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...
