    Known this guy for 5-6 years online,

    last year I developed feelings for him. He said a load of random crap and took off, didn't hear from him for 3 months. He came back, saying he had psychosis and he loved me since the start, gave him a chance and now he's gone again for the same reason. What do I do? :/

    who I really care for as a friend. He's a really fun, smart and creative guy but I noticed very insecure, shy and overall closed towards people. In order to appreciate him as a person you really have to get to know him and really invest in him. Which I did since I saw a lot of...

    as a kid many times. so my experiences with relationships and intimacy hasn't always been healthy. I slept with someone for money once, and I wish I never did. I've ruined a relationship over it once.

    The makeshift ring she gave me haunts me in my sleep. I locked myself now in a life I can't get out of. If only she could save me. I've fallen into the dark. I need to see the light in her eyes again. I die every day. Over and over

    Yeah. I believed a self titled nice guy.

    I let myself get misled. I bent too many of my own rules to make him happy. But nothing makes him happy. And so then I was unhappy too. And lost myself. I regret that most of all.

    I live in Purgatory. Because of some of my

    life's choices I feel that I'm bound for an eternity of purgatory. I'm not a religious person at all. I gave up on religion and faith many years ago. But by the purest of definitions, I am in purgatory.
