    It Had Only Been a Month...

    ...since my boyfriend broke up with me via email.  Well, according to him, we'd broken up before that, but we talked it out and I THOUGHT we'd decided to stay together.  But I went home one weekend and there it was - "I'm sorry, but I can't do this anymore.  I...

    And Now They're Gone.

    My first love and I corresponded frequently, and most of our emails were on an a email account that I started using less and less... I never did save them to a system or a disk and one day, I went to log into that account and it had been deactivated. I cried. We've both long...

    Weird How This Works..

    Advice Before You Love

    He was my first love, and about two months ago I was clearing up my mailbox and found this email which he sent me way at the beginning of our relationship. Back then it was just a nice read, nothing significant. But this time when I read it, it overwhelmed me with nostalgia over...

    From D

    I found some this morning, ones that I had saved, and old messages from him. It reminded me of how bad it used to be. How I wanted to hate him but couldn't and how much I loved/love him. There was one in particular, where he told me how guilty he felt for being with me. I...

    Love Vs Hate

    I made the mistake of letting someone who really loved me go. I messed up so much with him that he won't even be my friend. Each word that I read from his letters are like knives. It's been years and yet, I feel like it's still a fresh pain. I don't know what to do and I wish...

    The Chat Logs

    ...but Not For the Reasons You Might Think.

    I cried when I read the old emails because I realized he never loved me. They say hindsight is 20/20 and I guess that's true because in reading through the emails all of the signs were there that he was cheating. That he was "just not that into me" that he was going...
