    My Boyfriend Came Out

    My boyfriend Joel and I have been together for three years. Last week, he told me that he was confused as to what he wanted. And I knew exactly what he was talking about. A couple months ago, I found gay **** on Joel's phone. I confronted him about it, and was stupid enough to...

    I get treated badly one way

    or the other by every man I've been with. My dad asks when I'm going to meet a half decent man and don't I want a half decent man. For some reason I meet and stay with for years men who treat me badly one way or the other. I think I have been treated badly in every possible way...

    Well, my family got a new dartboard,

    right? And my brother and I decided to go play it, at like 9 pm, so around a half an hour ago, so we were throwing them, and I hit the wood twice, cause that's a really fancy dartboard, so, I hit the wood twice and he yelled at me. But I ignored him as usual, and then, he threw...

    Pain in my chest like my heart has stopped.

    My heart ripped to a thousand pieces when I hear your voice. To look at you makes me want to disappear into blackness. Love not even broken love. It will never die, I wish it would. To be free and carry this pain no longer. To live is to love is to feel this pain. There was...

    I fell in love with someone within the span of

    one week. And now I'm weaker than ever. Initially having a bipolar stance on him I forced myself to pick a side. I chose love. He didn't. That's all.

    I don't have any feelings left.

    Not love , hate ,passion for life. I have had my heart ripped inside out more times than I can count in the last 6 months . The shear lack of trust I have for the ones that I love and that claim they love me I don't think I can ever get past it. 20 years ago if someone told me...

    I never thought that one day he would hurt me.

    Emotionally. I still remember the day we had this deep conversation about feelings and how I said that I am emotionally strong. Well, he did a good job in throwing the words back at me once he was "done". Letting people close to me has always been a tough job. I never liked...

    until it was gone, truth is you new exactly what you had you just never thought you’d lose it.

    It's Finally Ended

    He hurt me for so long, in so many ways. Along with his friends. They raped me, beat me, whipped me, molested me, hurt me with words. I fought for awhile, until I realised that it didnt help, it just made them angrier. And if they were angrier, they were more violent. So I let it...

    , you think she cried because she want to?, have you ever give her chance to show her true color?. I wouldn't ask you for much, but just one, please make her smile. You know, when she with the other she will show her fake smile, a happy face, but when she was alone she always...

    He Don'T Love Me

    They said if a person loves you truly, he will never let you go no matter how difficult the situations is in life. I didn't let him go but he let me go. Why do I still think about him - A person who didn't love me.

    who I have been friends with since the fourth grade. I'm in seventh now. So, I always sat with them for lunch. But after, say February? They've been acting weird. I stopped talking to them as much because they cared about popularity, and I couldn't give a fudge about people who...

    I'm tired of being hurt.

    It's caused me to developed an uncaring attitude towards girls who claim to have feelings for me. If she starts to take me for granted, treating me like garbage, acting like she could toss me aside without a care, I tell her so. If she tells me she's sorry, and that she still...

    This is about a past relationship.

    The whole point of relationships is to find out whether or not you're going to marry that person, right? When my ex and I first met, he was all lovey-dovey with me and seemed really interested (I never really have people interested in me). So he and I were together for about...

    When someone you've never talked to doesn't

    like you. That's probably one of the worst feelings ever. I think we should try and give people the benefit of the doubt instead of judging them before we get to know them
