I Have Had My Heart Broken

    My girlfriend, who I've been seeing

    for about 2 years, admitted to me that she cheated on me with one of her friends from California. She admitted to me that she was initially nervous at the possibility that she would be very attracted to him. She had sex with him after our collective college graduation party. She...

    I've given my heart completely to one person.

    I don't see it happening again, but I'm grateful to have the experience. To know what love truly looks like.

    From my picture, I'm sure you can tell

    that I'm not the most handsome. I'm not saying I'm hideous but I'm not attracting the ladies either. So when you read, keep that in mind. Back in April, this woman, Hope, started emailing me. We had a class together and we talked a few times. I didn't think much of it. Then she...

    I don't really want any advice.

    I'm just putting this out there, into this great wide virtual void, because I haven't been able to find the words to say what I've been feeling - it's been almost 3 months, and still I hurt, cringe inwardly, whenever I pull out a memory, like it is a scab I am constantly...

    To have someone emotionally stab you in the

    chest and rip your heart out with their hands feels almost physical, and it really ******* sucks.

    I discovered that my boyfriend of 12 years had

    been cheating on me for the last 5 years. I gave up everything in my life to devote myself to us building a life together. Because of everything I sacrificed, I decided to try to work on our relationship. He instead decided to leave me. I am now alone with no friends or any...

    I don't know what it is

    still have moments where I want to do nothing

    but cry I wish I didnt why cry over someone who's not worth it. Who isnt even worrying about you. Its crazy how things end up sometimes. I really try my best but it just doesnt seem like enough.

    I know I shouldn't feel this way,

    but somehow him breaking up with me really pushed down my self esteem on how I look. No matter how many people told me i look really good when it comes to him i felt low ... Do u get me?

    Dear boyfriend of mine We've been together

    for 3 years and I'm hurting because I can see that you are slowly but surely falling out of love with me. It hurts to know that you don't think I'm good enough. It hurts to know that I'm no longer a priority in your life but merely an option. It hurts when you compare me to...

    It's like once you've been hurt.

    You're so scared to get attached again. Like you have this fear that every person you start to like is going to break your heart. But ugh. Love isn't something you look for. Love finds you and when it does, ready or not, it'll be the best thing to ever happen to you. I'm just...

    My heart was broken and my soul was shattered.

    Now all I feel is cold. I can't believe it happened but it did, now all I have is darkness. I don't know if it can mend.

    Wasn't interested in a relationship until he put the idea in my head. He told me he loved me, he said I was the one, he told me I was pretty and beautiful and I feel for it. I met him once and he seemed nice. We spoke every night on FaceTime. I was supposed to meet him again but...

    A few times imagined

    and once for real. I know this is shorter than most of my other stories but I don't really have a great deal to say about it. It's been a long time and old wounds do heal even if it doesn't seem like it at the time.

    Everyone knows that the heart is a muscle.

    I think it's even deeper than that; When people do resistance training (weight lifting), they are creating little tears in their muscle, which makes them get bigger and stronger once the body repairs it. I think the same is true for the heart, on a metaphoric level; The...

    Depression from a broken heart is one of the

    I don't know, what's wrong with him?

    We broke up almost four years ago and we still have the same emotions. But when I try to approach him he blushes and looks so joyful that he starts stuttering and stays silent but smiling like me. But then when some other girl hits on him, he just give them chances but don't...

    All those promises broken. My heart shattered. Left my body numb. Broken morals. Those were the four things he left me. I gave him everything possible. I tried so hard to make it work, get him back, to love him. We had a good relationship I guess you could say.. We fought a few...

    I just don't want to admit it.

    These past few days, I have been. Having to feel emptiness, we are somehow trapped inside a cycle, hopeless of getting out from the wilderness. One thing I hold close to my heart, tomorrow has a promise of mending what has been broken.
