    This is meant for one person,

    they will know well who they are if they read this. I do not know if you are on this site in some reincarnated form but I strongly suspect that you are. Are you the lady that said " There will be times I'll try to lock you out." Please don't give up on me" and later asked me not...

    It is both a blessing

    and a curse to feel everything so deeply.

    I have a deep longing to belong to a woman 100%.

    I need to have a family again. To belong to and with people WO live and love together unconditionally. Ho can the idiots I read about on here throw those tremendous blessings aside to a fling/affair. How can these other women or men casually demolish homes and families...

    Sometimes, when I reflect on how I have been

    hurt by feeling deeply, I come to realize things about myself that I decide I need to change. For example, there was a girl in high school who I was "in love" with. She and I did some casual dating, but it was clear to me that she did not reciprocate my feelings. So I got caught...

    It's amazing how, sometimes,

    even the sweetest or happiest of songs or melodies can make you feel so unbelievably sad.. Sometimes I wonder why I fight my defenses.. why I don't listen to myself when my heart knows it'll bleed again in time.. But what are dreams if not the hopeful desire never to bleed...

    I miss... The feeling of another's skin against

    mine Becoming one with another Getting lost in someone's eyes Uncontrollable laughter about nothing Being held and feeling adored Happiness in someone's voice when they hear from me The simplest things are what I miss the most.

    i had walls put up, guarding myself from people.

    i never wanted to be hurt again because i would open myself so easily just to be let down and neglected, and be pushed away. years with my wall up i have let it down for a very special woman and i hope not to be hurt again.

    Emotionally exhausted from giving myself wholly

    to people who can only give me half of themselves. The problem with these relationships is, they always end. Because they have to. Always a dead end. And the pain is unbearable and debilitating. All that's left are pieces of something once so beautiful. Memories and an aching...

    I Found The Answer

    I was born with a good heart that feels so much for others in pain or sufferings. Sometimes i was badly hurt because i feel too much. Now i know how to surrender my feelings to God. Only HIM can help.

    How is it possible to feel

    so much pain yet still be so very much in love with the one causing the pain? Why can this pain not make you hate the one inflicting the pain? Do I need to rethink my very being and consider that I may be a masochist? I do not think that I am because I do not understand how...

    and having my heart broken. Why can't people just be honest about who they are and what they really want from you?

    I feel things deeply.

    I believe it when someone tells me that they love me. I get hooked fast. I fall hard. The other person doesn't always feel the same...most of the time actually. Then I am left to pick up the pieces of my life again. You would think that I would eventually learn. But I...

    Still My Heart Is Open

    I have accepted that a person's basic nature doesn't change and part of my personality is being open to having a deep connection with another person.  More than that, opening my heart and allowing someone in.  I suppose the good part is that it is very rare.  I am discerning...

    I have a kind heart and a gentle soul

    and I often get hurt. I tend to put everything into a relationship and love deeply and unconditionally. I want to find someone that will accept me for who I am and appreciate me for the kind hearted, gentle, loving and affectionate person that I am.

    I really teeter back

    Sometimes people come into your life needing

    I am tired of wanting romance,

    passion and a deep love.. I am what I am but sometimes being me hurts me. I wish that I don't feel as much, I wish I have a switch that I can turn on and off so I can easily detach myself.
