    Love was once a beautiful thing shared by two

    people who felt very strongly for one another. The two would be compassionate and intimate, and truly enjoy each others company. Nobody's opinions mattered to them as long as they were happy with each other, as long as they were having a good time together. Love was simple and...

    Make Believe

    Can anyone define or explain love? Human beings throw the word 'love' around without truly knowing the meaning. The illusion of falling in love is like that of the tooth fairy, Santa Claus or the Easter bunny. It is something we fabricate in our minds. Humans are hungry for love...

    Title Of This Group Says It All.

    I just started leaving all the groups I was in about love. At least ones that I hadn't written stories in. I'm going through a love-purge, of sorts.I've never really experienced love. Or I'm just totally blind. It's a long story. I'm not so sure it even exists - thus I don't...

    I used to think love had the answers.

    Those dreams died a painful death.

    I believe in family live

    and friends love but I just don't believe in ROMANTIC LOVE. It just doesn't make sense to me. I think people just get married to show that they have a husband to their friends, and some of them so it because they want to have babies. And others do it because they want sex. I don...

    An everyday argument between me

    and my friends. Them saying no one can crack the code of love and I saying it doesn't even exist. I'm 16 without a crush, never had one never will. Sure I care about people, I would cry if they pasted but I love you never comes to mind. I love you doesn't exist.

    Or is it because I haven't been in-love?

    Ppl come into your life, you lust, you love, you break up, you hurt, you then move on. Weeks, months or years later they may pop back in, but the feeling you once had for them has faded. And so that is not love, it never was. I've felt this way numerous times. Instant attraction...

    There's this really complex feeling inside of me

    but I'm not depressed. But it doesn't mean either that it'll change just because 'I'll find the right person''. There's is NO right person for everybody. Whoever made that BS can shut the hell up! Because first of all, a lot of people can't face the fact that we're all different...

    What The Hell's The Point, Anyway?

    Seriously, why do we punish ourselves with trying to fall in love? There are over 6 billion people on this God-forsaken turd we call "Earth" and I doubt more than a 100th of the global population has a chance in Hell of ever finding someone they can spend their lives with. I...

    Love Is For Children.

    i love my sister, my best friend, my cat. I am capable of experiencing the emotion of love. It's just caring. But capital-L Love, on the other hand, is bullshit. "True Love" and "Soulmates" are nothing more than a media representation of an idealistic childhood daydream. It...

    Love Doesn't Seem To Exist

    The reason I don't believe in love, is that I see couples who have been together for so long break up. You can never fully trust someone and have them never let you down. I'm not saying a relationship has to be perfect, but you'll always be let down. One of you will give their...

    Well, today I've realized,

    love isn't real. I mean you could love someone support them best you could, truly do anything for them, and she would just stomp on your heart, like you're not worth ****, you know I thought she was different, I thought finally I found someone to renew my faith in love, but...

    I don't know.. I guess it don't really believe

    in love. As a child I did, but with each year I mature, I stray away from the thought. If it exists, it's more like extreme infatuation, or it is only one-sided. It's nothing like the books. I have been told by people before that they love me, but I don't think they mean it...

    I closed my heart off like,

    two months ago due to the shock, depression and anger of a five year unrequited yet confusing love. My eyes opened at my own carelessness and stupidity. Now I'm free and honestly don't believe in love, it's ******* stupid and I will never find 'the one' it's a pile of bull.

    Whats The Point!!

    I dont believe in love. I believe its just a word people use to get you to stay with them. They say they love and then they leave. They all leave after awhile. Nothing lasts. I know I'm a cynic but I'm speaking the truth!

    I believe in the love a friend has for a friend, or a family member has or another family member, but as far as romantic love- nope. It's a total fantasy that disappears after the newness has worn off.
