    Tremendous Hurt And Anguish Over Breakup. Blindsided

    I loved a guy for over a year and a half. He said he loved me over and over, we shared our life together, knew eachother's families. Then right after New Year's, he broke up over the phone with me. (Cowardly, I know) It came out of nowhere. He said he didn't want to be in a...

    I can't get him out of my mind

    and whenever I think of something we did, he said, his touch - tears just fall. How can someone just walk away without even an "I'm sorry, we should have never happened - I led you on" something anything!? My story sucks and yes, before you judge me, I was the other woman. I am...

    You know it's ok. He dated my best friend

    when he knew that I had feelings (a lot) for him. Let's face it, I'm 14. What the heck would I know about love? Maybe it's because I was in love with the idea of love? Maybe it was because I was just comfortable being in love with the same person for 3 years, almost 4 now. I was...

    A Little Note About A Letter I Never Wrote

    This note is about a letter that I was going to write. I realize that regardless what is in this letter that it only holds truths for me. I've written the letter several times in my head but keep coming back to the same results. Regardless of how "in control" I am, I fell in...

    I Never Want To Love Again

    As hard as it is for me to relive what happened, I feel it would be best to get it off my chest. I moved to Chesapeake, VA in 2005 from Waukegan, IL. I was 19 years old and ready for whatever life threw at me, or so I thought. I had to find a job so I applied at a Petsmart up...

    A Lesson In Silence

    how many hours can one man spend gazing at a name? just one name that he used to adore. a name that used to roll of the lips like rocks rolling off a Tennessee cliff on a winding south bound road. that same name that he loved so long but now remains a silent statue of what used...

    Oh, wow. This is probably one of the hardest

    things I've ever been through. I started a long-distance relationship in December. Things seemed to be going extremely well, and I thought I was actually happy for once. I was crazy about him. Last week, a person he knows messaged me saying that he had cheated on me - not just...

    Love Is Painful

    How Long Will It Take?

    So how long does it take to heal a broken heart? Everyone is different. People tend to go from relationship to relationship without experiencing the feelings of the previous breakup. Confusion, hate, back to loving again, it all swirls into one big pile of steaming sh*t doesn't...
