    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...

    Only Necessary Interactions

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    You know, you never really give up on love.

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

    college in 2009 after a breakup with another woman that just up and left me with these words ''Later on in life you'll see that it was for the better'', but in all actuality it just reopened wounds from past hurts of being dumped for someone else. When I met this woman in my...

    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...

    What Can You Believe Anymore?

    What if you meet someone by chance and there is that immediate "spark" and then you see them months later and the spark becomes a flame, and you tread recklessly into love, because that flame has been kept by someone else for 6 years. HOW CAN YOU FEEL SO "...

    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...

    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?

    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.

    Heart Broken; Hope Lost

    Love Is A Joke!

    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...

    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 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.

    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...
