    Crushed!

    Thats how my heart feels after my last partner dumped me. I have only ever had two relationships in 40 years. I actually think if I had had more it would be worse as I would sit thinking "all those relationships ended and I wasnt good enough for them and they dont love me anymore...

    *sigh*

    I get hurt very easily. I shouldn't take things so seriously sometimes, but like.........I just can't help it. My friends and I joke a lot. For instance, I'm a size 2/3 in shorts and all and all my friends are 0s so they're always like, "Get your fat size 2 butt over here...

    Hurt

    My heart, it used to be strong, brave, steely...It doesn't get hurt my a few harsh words of criticisms but as time goes, my heart, it was slashed and cut, pierced and pinched, it cracked and shatter. It had become so tender, it hurts easily...

    My Jewel

    I am amazed this group exists and glad I found it. :) I get my feelings hurt very easily but sometimes not in ways most people might deem a heartbreaker. I can't tell when people are joking off the Internet, and especially on the Internet. Sometimes I know to ask if someone's...

    Soft Heart...don't Laugh.

    I find it a little embarrassing but its so true about me. I can take a joke and laugh with the best but when you hit me in the heart the joke is over, my heart is soft and its not a pillow to put pins in sorry. It's sometimes a blessing cause that maybe just one of the best...

    Can You Please Set It Down!

    I know it's cool to look at because it's bigger and softer than most you see out there, but my heart is still fragile so I will ask that you not kick it or punch it as has been done aplenty in days gone by. In fact, can you please just set it back down, you're making me nervous...

    Over Emotional

    I try to stay strong, and physically, I am very much so. Emotionally I am not, I am so easily hurt emotionally by the slightest of things. Especially when in a committed relationship, I tend to value my partners opinions to a T, wich usually leads to my feelings being hurt.
