I Don't Believe In Love Anymore

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 65 People

    I was hopeless romantic,

    but after being in a few bad relationships, I am starting to think that love is actually just a habit, a fiction. I am in relationship with someone right now, and I love him, but I also think I would be fine without him as well. I don't know what happened to me, and why am I...

    Naive Love Is Not Enough Anymore

    Naive trusting love is not enough anymore for me. I need more, I need communication, show of respect, I need emotional intimacy and actions rather than words. When love was enough, I was used, thrown aside for selfishness and personal desires and wants. My needs and desires...

    I somewhat dont believe in love anymore Because

    of a guy that kinnda broke me. After him, I decided to shut myself from love and decided that being numb was the best thing to do. I do wish I could believe in love again. Who knows?

    It must be me and not every female I date. I can't seem to do it right no matter how hard I try. I have been married three times and divorced all three and have not had a physical relationship for nearly four years now. I recently tried again to be with someone, albeit long...

     I remained hopeful, I thought maybe there was chance we would get back together.  I help on to that small glimmer of home.  This is all in the past tense, we won't get back together, we had a beautiful and civil conversation and it is clear that I will never be lucky enough...
