Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 65 People

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
