I Have Loved Someone So Much It Hurt

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 258 People

    As You Wish Cowboy!

    I love him with all my heart and soul!  He is the man of my dreams even if he doesn't think he is.   I know how amazing he is.  He is the man that will see someone upset and give them a smile and a friendly hello!  He is the man that sees good in...

    My girl makes me feel

    so happy yet so sad. We've been going on 6 months daiting and I know I haven't been the greatest person. I've lied to her a couple times of small things so she wouldn't worry. Which I know it's the wrong thing to do to someone with major trust issues. I'm trying my best to show...

    To ache for them but knowing you can't ever

    mention how you feel. Suspecting they feel the same but being stuck to someone you don't love anymore. Looking for them every morning you go into work, that girl who lights up the very room with her presence. That makes the miserable grind of work bearable with her jokes...

    It Hurt

     I loved him for four years, and when he finally asked me, I wasn't sure if I could do it, but I said yes, and one year later, he left me. He's now with my best friend, and they've been together for almost a year, and he loves her, and I can't stop loving him.
