I Have a Crush On Someone I Shouldn't

    Guess I Was Wrong.

    I had that little theory. It went like this: "Being in love with someone I can't have is emotionally safe, because if I can never be with them, they can never hurt me, either." This stemmed from having suffered in relationships; so I indulged myself in my celebrity crush and I...

    We grew up together. I have never really

    Her

    Everything about her makes me smile. Her hair, her skin, her teeth, her honesty, her caring nature, her hugs, her positive outlook on life, her stubbornness...the list goes on. The biggest problem I have though is that she is my best friend. We can't be together for many reasons...

    I think I'm finally over her.

    Almost. But apparently things between her and her bf are rough right now, that they may break up. What used to be my dream is now just kinda sad. It hurts to see her so upset. I'd rather her be happy with him than sad without.

    I really showed my *** a few weeks ago to him.

    .. My immaturity was through the roof. I'm really surprised he forgave me. I just know things will never be the same.

    Three years ago I fell in love with the boy

    who was (and still is) pretty much far away. We met on the intership and after that we've started writting. The intershil lasted short time so writting was kinda good option. It was really obvious that for me it was more than friendship so after year I just decided that I will...

    Crushes are funny things.

    I always end up having a crush on someone I shouldn't. It's a case of always 'wanting what you can't have'. Luckily, however, I'm at a point where I can recognise whether I have a crush on someone and do my best to deal with it instead of hating myself for it. I've been...

    Well since I keep this to myself,

    I have a crush on someone who is almost 10 years older than me. I really love his personality & he's so beautiful. Like I know he's been hurt before & there's still hurt in him which makes me even more crazy. I don't know why, weird huh? He's also kinda mysterious which makes...

    He's amazing, he's kind,

    he's loving, and sweet. He is perfect in my eyes, and his looks are a huge bonus. I just met him and I have fallen for him. He accepts me for who I am and my child, which is always a problem in my relationships, they judge me for having a baby. He doesn't. He accepts me and all...

    When you love someone

    that doesn't love you back. When you've given so much of yourself-mind, body, and soul and that person could care less. When theyre all you think about night and day and they hardly think of you. When they dont call, text, or come by like they said they would, and yet another...

    I'm married with 2 children

    and I've developed a crush on a good friend of mine. I've recently come to terms with my sexuality and she's been there to talk to me about it. She has two kids and a partner that treats her horribly. We get along so well and can talk for hours without a moment of silence. She...

    I went to his house, we talked.

    My goal was to make him 'happier'. As we talked he lit up a blunt. I dont know if he was faking, but It seemed like he got high infront of me. I just went home because I didnt wanna get involved in that. I still love him tho

    My situation is just getting worse.

    .. I'm trying to find things in my crush that I don't like and I have but none of it stops me from crushing. We get along too well. I've decided to start going out and hopefully I'll meet someone else to distract me.

    story of my life! It's usually my very married boss, best friend, or lover's best friend. Forbidden fruit look like they'll taste sweeter -but are really just a case of food poisoning waiting to happen!

    my boss. We talk all the time at work, and have started talking online till late most nights too. I know nothing will happen - he's my supervisor, he has a kid, and I'm pretty damn sure he doesn't feel anything like that for me, but I just can't stop myself. He's cute, and funny...

    About my Marine.... Okay,

    he isn't mine yet of course, that's why he's a crush, but he will be eventually! We've finally formed a healthy friendship that can get sexual when we want but doesn't depend on it. I'm almost 18 so now he's more comfortable with the thought since he's almost a decade older than...

    I have a huge crush on someone I shouldn't.

    He is my first cousin. We became close friends after my mom was sent to prison for crimes she committed. He helped me mentally to adjust to life without my mother. We dated 2 or 3 times a week then. I was so attracted to him and wanted to spend a lot of time with him. For...

    Why is it I can't seem to control my hormones

    when the father of one of my sons friends comes to our house? Tonight sitting around our kitchen table during dinner, I couldn't stay focused. I could smell his cologne lingering in the air and my mind was wandering to forbidden places.
