    who I thought she was... I'm emotionally and mentally drained from the toying of my emotions. I think it's time to call it quits...

    All Hail The Heartbreaker

    This will be the first time I'm sharing this story, ever. No one quite understands, and they probably never will. Two years ago, I fell in love. I fell in love with someone from a reality tv show. I know, it seems ridiculous. But there is a story here. I didn't fall in love with...

    My Dream Girl

    I was so happy with my girl. Even the things I didn't like about her were the kind of things that I didn't really mind because I knew she just didn't want me doing things that were bad for me. Then one day it was over. Nothing lead up to it, no fights, no on-going arguements or...

    I have. At the time I felt like my world ended.

    When the drama stopped, my tears dried, the smoke cleared, and the sun rose again on my new day, I realized that the one who broke my heart gave me the best present of all. A future without them, as they never really had my heart to begin with,

    They say your first heartbreak is the hardest.

    You're sixteen, innocent and overwhelmed by the feelings of love and bam--he's gone. I gave him everything. The distance between us did not ever slow down the fast pace of our crazy, amazing relationship. Three months is a second in a lifetime, but when you're sixteen, it's...
