I Have Given Up On Love

Getting hurt so many times that you are afraid to try again! Feeling like maybe love was just not in the cards for you. 270 People

    Being a virgin male and believing in absence

    makes me undateable. And if I do ever get into a relationship she will probably cheat on me.

    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...

    Society's definition of love,

    and the relationship it is supposed to produce, is unnatural and unsustainable in human nature. I have 'given up' in the sense that I no longer believe in the concept of long term relationships, of being in love with someone for years and years. It's not real. I have realized...

    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...

    The Reason Why

    I've been in like three serious relationships that have always ended bad and have ****** me up. When It comes to love I'm always the one who gives more, who sacrifices more in order for the other one to be okay. The thing is I think most people now a days see love as something...

    After analyzing my parents relationship,

    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...

    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...

    For real this time my heart is sealed!

    Forever. I sincerely apologize if I've caused a lot of trouble and nuisance here and also have hurt other people's feelings somehow. It's my own fault for not being able to accept the person I am. Lastly I hate no one and I hope this is enough to say sorry.

    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...

    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...
