    My Heart Is Broken And I Don't Know How To Fix It.

    It started with a funny dance, and a introduction. He was a dork and I didn't know anyone at the time. I also didn't know that love would once again pollute my heart again. Last Night I figured out that he know all along. He lead me on, held me, caressed me, then ignored me...

    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...

    First Love

    I was 15 yrs old when I saw her for the first time. I was not expecting to see her. She would turn my life into a roller-coaster ride. She had a gorgeous face, gorgeous body, gorgeous black dress, gorgeous shoes, gorgeous style, basically everything was gorgeous about her. She...

    Everyone around me is dumb,

    they were passing around condoms for free at my school. Every attractive person is attached to the people who are jerks and no guys with actual class get anyone. I feel emotions mixed between jealousy and stupidity. The way the world works isn't right, oh well I'll just have to...

    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...

    A Decision

    I have made a decision to not acknowledge that "love". For i know it to be a false hood and i will not cling to false hope anymore.I almost don't feel like this is a relationship but a friendship thats formal.lolz....We will see how this transgresses.

    I decided to give up on love

    as I don't see ever meeting the ideal woman that I want for my life. I'm not changing my ways to settle for less as I know I won't enjoy the relationship.

    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...
