    Here I am sitting in the freezing cold outside

    getting Eaten by Mosquitos just for one shooting star to go by. That shooting star will hold my wish of being with my lifetime crush, Ryan. I love him so much but he's reading my text messages and big replying. I don't think he will ever want to be my boyfriend:(

    I don't know why I write this

    but for me, LOVE is silly. I have given up on love, since I've been cheated, lost someone that I really love the most, and boys take advantages on me. I really do not understand, are they the one who's wrong or am I the one who was stupid enough to let them make me trust about...

    Too late Just too late,

    even if you will think of me at times. I won't be the same me and you won't be the same you. I will no longer love you. Time is a joker, it made me from a woman in love to a woman in reality. Reality tells me you are worthless for the purity of my love. I won't regret my...

    I've Just Been Through Too Much Crap

    I really can't say I've had any good experiences with men.  Some were better than others I guess, but I wouldn't say any of them were "good."  I thought I loved one of my two boyfriends, but he turned out to be totally insane and when I broke up with him...

    Yes I Have

    As my third marriage comes to an end, I’ve realized that I’m never going to have the only thing I’ve truly wanted in life: a soul mate. I am 42 years old and have wasted my life on abusive men, knowing they were the way they were but thinking “things will get better...

    I don't understand why people feel others HAVE to find love.Do they need to feel their view of life is the only right one? I'm 46, divorced 10 years, and have a wonderful young daughter who means the world to me. I realize at this stage of my life "love" just isn't going to...

    Nope, can't envision it happening. I don't love anyone that isn't fictional. It's a good thing, love makes people act like idiots :)

    A Big Lonely Heart

    Does real love really exist?  I am almost 50 years old now and have become so cynical about love.  I have been told I love you many times in my life but i no longer believe it is true.  If you truly love someone do you leave them, stop loving them, abuse them...

    Everyone around me is dumb,

    What's The Point?

    I've given up on love simply because no matter what happens, 9 times out of 10, someone's going to end up getting hurt. I don't like hurting people and I sure as hell don't like getting hurt, but it happens. The things is, it happens way too much for me. If it's not directly to...

    Giving Up On Love

    Getting a hold of each other now seems to be a difficult task for both of us, probably the timing sucks or we just probably have drifted apart. It breaks my heart not to feel so close to you anymore, but you probably feel the same way too... Sometimes I wonder what happened to...

    why have I given up on Love.

    It simple, you can give your heart over and over to woman many times but it when they throw it back in your face. This mini story as I am about to say is brutal. I gave online dating a go, and I was in a relationship for 3 years, now I was young and the internet was new at the...

    I no longer believe someone can fall in love with anyone. How can anyone ever really "fall in love?" It so useless, sooner or later you'll get bored and better things will come along your way. Its pointless. I don't know maybe someone will change my mind but right now, I don't...
