    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...

    So You Never Really Loved Me? What Else Is New?

    Really? Really....he tells me that two years were just a lie, all bullshit.  All told for whatever the reasons.  He says these things around telling me never to contact him again.  No one has ever broken my heart like this one did.  He has the gall to ask if I've found...

    Yeah so I never am able to find a "perfect" guy.

    I dunno.. Some of them want to date me, others just want to be **** buddies. Idk what I want, all I know is that they confuse the h*ll out of me. But anyway, on my old account I talked about almost losing my virginity to one of my guy friends. The problem is, my period hasn't...

    I don't believe in happiness in love.

    I used to but now not so much. I believe that love brings us pain and honestly in my opinion all of the great loves are sad. And for something to be good it has to have a sad ending

    A Long Overdue Story...

    I am sure somewhere in my experiences is one listed "I believe in Love" so then why this now? Things happened, I changed, you changed, we all changed and who knows if it was for good or bad but my change is certainly helping me put things more in perspective. Hitting on the...

    I Don't Believe In Love

    I guess at a young age, I'd have thought I would find my "prince charming"... I didn't go through any heart breaking experience as I have never had a boyfriend. I just have grown to understand more about life, and well... I don't believe in true love. I don't care for it and...

    Maybe I'm just a cocky bastard,

    but I don't feel like I've ever been in love, and I don't want to be. I read all these experiences about people loving in a sexless relationship because of love, but stay because they feel somehow responsible for their partners libido. I believe in lust. I don't want to settle...

    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...

    Love is for the mentally weak.

    ..i really don't think love is real it's just so many people want it to be that they actually think they feel it.

    Media Hype

    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...

    Some people like to fantasize and believe in such a thing as love. They believe that two people are able to be attracted to each other and "love" the aspects of the other. They believe that two such people form what is known as a romantic bond. I believe in no such things. Love...

    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.

    I believe that love is just another word used

    for deception and trickery. It is a fraud to reach a persons heart and mind then crush them slowly until they shatter. Money, hate or even pure tricks are the only things **** people want but they use the word love. So there it is my idea of love.
