    Why Does It Have To Be So Hard...............

    Love and falling in love is definately one of lifes true pleasures. That should be at least experienced once in a lifetime... if Lucky enough. But with all good things, unfortunately comes bad... Why does Love have to fade or become non-exsistant? Why cant it stay bright...

    I thought she still loved me.

    For six months she spoke of how she needed to be better for me. How people who break up can get back together someday. She keeps telling me "I love you" and "I want to be with you again". But I no longer believe it. When she feels sad or lonely I am her whole world and I make...

    Women are just not attracted to me.

    They never show signs of interest, no matter what I do. I think my looks are the problem. Some people say I look fine. But I'm convinced my looks are not OK. If they were OK, over 1000 women on match.com wouldn't have passed me over. I wouldn't have been rejected by all the...

    Husband clearly hasn't loved me

    for years - he lost the wedding ring, I waited 4 years before he admitted he lost it. We don't talk, if we do it's all arguments. Maybe I'm naïve, I thought marriage was till death to you part. 1 person trying and loving isn't enough. It's over. I give up.

    I forgot to love myself at one point in my life.

    But I came to the realisation that life is full of surprises, people change, relationship change and feelings change. Hence, I let go of the life when pleasing everyone became my habit and made my world go round. Goodbye old me!!! 😃

    Love is a chemical. A drug. To be loved, something about us must trigger such a reaction from our partners. And most of us does not have that quality. In the end, few people are really meant to be loved, but the people who do not carry the quality to be truly loved will at least...
