    I myself have found someone

    who I can love finally after a long time. but overall love in general is almost all but gone. because it seems that in this age expressing your feelings for someone or showing how much you love somone is being seen as uncool or stupid. as well as some people feel the need to...

    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?

    Heart Broken; Hope Lost

    I was "in love" for three years with a man who took me for granted half the time and then spent the rest of the time trying to change and control and hurt me. There were patches of REALLY great times but looking back now even those seem coated in deciet and manipulation. I...

    I'll never let myself fall again.

    'Cause in the end, it's only me who let myself suffer. It's only me who's hurting. And I'm so done with all of these.

    There Is No Point Any More

     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...

    I lost that belief about a month ago

    and it has been draining more and more as the days go by. I was in a relationship with a person I thought I loved, but we had grown apart andi ended things. He made me feel really bad but found some girl to hook up with. Everyone i trust lets me down. If love involves full trust...

    No

    I don't believe in this "idea of love" that I once held. In the beginning, my idea of love between a man and a woman came from movies and books. But I'm at a point in my life where certain experiences shattered that idea. And I would have to say that though they weren't the most...

    What's The Point

    I had love and she left me.  I help onto hope that if I tried hard enough and solved the problems that she used as evidence against our relationship I could be happy again.  I was wrong.   I have lost the only thing that kept my life in order, I have lost the only thing that...

    Finally I Understand.........

    One night while watching Sex and the City an amazing thing happened. An epiphany. Suddenly it all made sense. Carrie posed the question Do you not believe in love? There it was. It hit me like a ton of bricks. After years of loving, caring, nurturing, giving and doing all the...

    I loved a lot, only a couple of times

    but a lot. They didn't love me back as much as I used to, so I stopped believing in it, men pursue you but don't want problems. Love is another thing.

    You know, you never really give up on love.

    You just get tired and force yourself not to want it.

    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...

    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...

    I was a young lady expecting romance

    but I never received it. The man I dated for 3-4 years was always cold to me. Cold kisses. No hugs. No holding hands. Always cold hands. Names calling damaged my self esteem. It was unforgivable and The man was ugly inside out. I dated a few men after the ugly man and they were...

    Love is only a glimpse

    and each bad encounter chips a piece of that image away. What makes love weaken between people is that they don't realize you can't get back the love you lost, so the name of the game is preservation. We can't patch the pieces back together. So be careful with your provocations...

    I still have to get along with others. I still have to be civil. i still have to be peaceful. And I will be. But I will never love again. Love only exists in fantasies now for me. Not in real life. Because there does not seem to be so much trust anymore, anywhere.   Seems more...
