    Some Old Emails From My First Love..

    So the other day, I was looking through old emails, deleting ones I saved that I no longer needed, etc. when I came across an old email from my boyfriend at the time. I started to cry.. it was a poem. It is too long to type, but it was adorable. He wrote it himself, for me. It...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    The Chat Logs

    I didn't so much find E-mails, but chat logs. It really hurts to read those and then look at how we are now. I barely talk to him and he makes no great effort to contact me, the last time I talked to him was on the phone when he called because I had text him and he couldn't...

    ...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...

    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...
