    My Thorn

    I don't get it. I want to feel love I long for it, but at the same time I'm afraid. I don't know what to do. Maybe I'm afraid of girls? I've been in relationships befor and I always ended them when they started getting deep. Then I would hide under my cover in my room and cry...

    There Should Be More People In This Group

      I don't think that I will ever understand love even though it is the feeling, the belief that all cultures and religions share even though they will strongly refute it when faced with it. It is a very precious gift, one often misused and one that is unable...

    Is Romantic Love Sustainable?

    So confused about romantic love nowadays. Too many mind games, too many liars. At some point, I don't give a damn and play with others. But in the end, I want to be with someone who cares. Yet, is it even possible to find someone who likes me as much as I like him? Someone as...

    I Don't Understand

    I don't understand, I try to be kind and loving, but it always backfires. My kindness it always taken for weakness. I talk to my girlfriend all the time and I try to be as open as possible with my feelings and try to get her to communicate the same way with me. And I'm getting to...

    It's a complex emotion

    When I was a kid, people would ask me if I loved my family, and I sometimes had a hard time answering them.  I just didn't know.  I loved my dad, but my mom and my brother would make my life a living hell.  How can you love someone when every memory...

    Do You Know What It Means To Be In Love?

    Does anyone out there know what it feels like? I’m dead serious. I’ve been asking myself this question over the past few days and I can not get an answer that makes sense to me and my logical side. See, I’m a child of the 80s (ok I was born in the 70s), and I remember...

    What Does It Mean?

    I loved her. She said she loved me. Then one day she left with no explanation. Did she stop loving me? Did she ever really love me in the first place? I was angry and hurt, but that passed and I find I still have feelings for her. Is it even possible to just stop loving someone...

    I Don't Have Any Desire To Understand It, Either...

    Love is an emotion that defies logic or explanation...and that's just the way I like it. I love just because I feel close to another human being, or pursuit, or object...not because I think that I Should Be obliged to love.

    Is it because I've never had relationships with

    anyone, much less even really thought of anyone in that way...? Usually, all that happens in the end is one or the other getting hurt, so why even bother?
