    The Internet Hurts

    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...

    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

    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...
