    I don't understand how someone could love me when i don't even love myself. When my parents tell me they love me, it seems more like an obligation, i feel like they love me as their daughter, not as a person, if i wasn't their daughter i dont think they would like me. When my...

    Where Is The Proof?

    I know my friends love me but since we don't regularly express intimate affection toward one another, we never say it. Family though-that's different. People in my family say they love me all the time but I see no proof. A hug doesn't count nor does a peck on the cheek-anyone can...

    When I Hear "i Love You"...

    I become skeptical. It's not that I don't want to hear those words. Who doesn't? My problem is that I have associated the phrase "I love you" with a high negative connotation. It has even become relatively difficult to accept that phrase from my own mother, and I KNOW...

    It's Just...

    ...thrown around so easily these days. So, I just can't believe it. Teenagers these days say they love someone just after knowing them for 3 days and then they break up on the fourth day. =/  Call it infatuation or a crush, I'll believe you, but tell me you love me, I'll just...

    I Have A Hard Time Believing It....

    I have a very hard time believing someone when they tell me they love me, not because I don't want to believe them, but because I have been told that saying a few times, well more than a few times, and it turned out to be not true. It just hurts to be told "i love you"...

    Sacred Gift, Turned Into "a Sentence Filler"

    To say these three words, used to mean so much. It showed progression in the stages of committment and connection, that would actually take... well, years to reach, but that made it all the more special. Now people just throw it around like it grows on trees, because it's...

    You Love Me? But Thats Impossible.

    You can never tell if people mean it when they say, "I love you." Theres no background check or credit score for how they feel. Somehow I just cant believe it. I just think I'm this horrible person and, I mean, nobody could love me. Right? I mean who can love the girl who's...
