    I have this new friend?

    If that's how he sees it, too. He's fun being with. He makes me laugh, he takes my mind off stressful work. He can be amazing cause he's really smart and wise. He often says good stuff about me, but it's more of making fun of me instead of complimenting me. One time, we sat...

    Sometimes I just don't understand.

    I never end up with the person I really like. Either there's always someone else or I'm just not good enough. But what about when someone leads you on and then you finally have the courage to tell them how you feel? They just want to be friends. This happened to me last month...

    It sucks when you're ignored by the person

    whose attention is the only thing you want in the world. Ever since this girl first walked into our school, I couldn’t take my eyes off her, and I know I probably wasn’t the only guy staring at her either. Through my mind, I was thinking, "you know what, I'm gonna try to...

    He moved to Pennsylvania at the end of December.

    We had a pretty interesting partnership for about a month before he left. I was really digging his energy, & he knew a little bit of everything. His entire existence was just a surplus of random facts. We were really vibing, & than he peaced out. Sure, we still like each other...

    I'm slowly getting over him.  There are days when I barely think of him.  But then there are days when everything I see or hear reminds me of him and the way he smells and of his beautiful face. I hate not being with him.  But, I know that it's better off this way...

    I like my brothers friend. my brother is 2 years older than me, but his friend is 3 years older. the reason i can never be with him is because my brother made it very clear to his friends that he would never be ok with any of his friends even hitting on me.
