    Ruined A Perfectly Good Friendship - Live And Learn

    Knew this girl when I was in my early 20's (we met when I was 20 she 18). We went out about a half a dozen times over three-ish years. We talked on the phone periodically about life, work, family nonsense, etc. Gradually we built up our talk frequency to about three or four...

    Too Much For Me To Handle

    I have heard about heart brake, have seen it happening around me. I have been with guys before and have gone through break ups, yet what I have felt back then never even came close to what I feel today. I am in pain; my heart has been ripped out and stacked to a wall. Before...

    When I first met him I thought

    that he was really cute but I never thought I had a chance with him. Slowly he started talking to me because he was trying to set me up with his best friend. But at the same time he started telling me that he liked me. He kissed me but after that he said it was just because we...

    The Feeling Was Always Mutual, But Something Unknown Always Stopped Us.

    When I first looked upon her she was sitting on her own huddled on a low bench with her face in a book, she was quite and withdrawn and it was evident to me that she had gone through some form of trauma. People said she was strange but I thought she was an evil angel waiting to...

    I didn't ask for it. Who does?

    I'm a pretty guarded person. I decided to let you in. You're an amazing friend. I wouldn't trade you for the world. I enjoy your company; you makes me laugh; your presence makes me smile; you're always there when I need you; you break me out of my shell. Then months later, I...

    We met four years ago

    and he had just started dating my best friend at the time. We hit it off over both of us liking our coffee light and sweet with French vanilla. I told him that night that if he ever hurt her, I would kill him. As the months went on we got really close. I could talk to him about...

    Homophobes Beware

    How old was I? Eleven? Twelve I think. He - two years older than I was likely fourteen. He was spending the night. He is like no one else I have ever known. Like a puppy dog at times, with boundless energy, even before he started drinking coffee. He has a sweet openness - a...

    I Fell In Love With My Best Friend

    I've kept this to myself for a while now, and I guess I just need to get it out, you know, before it destroys me. I could turn to a friend or a family member but I just can't conjure the courage. So I guess turning to strangers was the next best thing. P.S. If the girl of my...

    Worth a Try.

    Really, I don't know why I'm doing this.  Maybe it's because I really have no one else to talk to about it.  I guess resorting to random people isn't really a good idea, but hey, it's worth a try.   I've been friends with her for about three years now.  We...
