    I Look For It, But Not Sure I Can Ever Find It...

    I had a best friend---we were engaged to be married, because i thought I had found an honest and loyal relationship.  When he died unexpectedly last summer, I found out that he had a whole world I didnt know about.

    Kudos to all those who stay loyal

    and true to their other and actually try to work things out and do whatever it takes to keep them, even when things get really rough.

    I Believe My Loyalty Has Been Misplaced

    Whether it's a personal relationship or a business relationship, if i'm going to bring you my loyalty...i deserve honesty and respect. Neither of which i'm getting from my boss....so i guess it's time to move on. There's things going on that just don't seem right...it's just a...

    Something I wrote to him,

    although I didn't send it. Thank you. I have a lot of things to thank you for. Thank you for showing me how to love and supposedly be "loved". Thank you for teaching me the difference in both being treated with love and respect verses object like. Thank you for showing me...

    Look But Don't Always Find

    I think those two above mentioned traits are really important and i can't be close to anyone who does not have them. Why would i waste my time on shady people when i have good friends already?

    Honesty & loyalty in a relationship have always been BIG things with me. My dad left my mom for another woman when I was 12. Gave me some serious abandonment issues that I'm STILL dealing with. I haven't had that many relationships..some I have messed up myself..leave them or...

    RELATIONSHIP RELATIONSHIPS: honesty, trust, loyalty, 100% commitment, an understanding & constant communication. That's what I want. Without romance, love gets dry. Without respect, love gets lost. Without caring, love gets boring. Without honesty, love gets unhappy, and...

    I can't stand being in a relationship

    where they're just using you to get what they want. My most recent ex asked me out and she was pregnant (it was someone else's but the guy ran scared). We dated for a while before she went into labor. I was with her even when she gave birth to her son. When they wouldn't give...

    Omg!! My husband and I are arguing over him

    hiding money and spending too much money and he says I am trying to control him and if ," I would get up and make his lunch", maybe that would help. Most mornings I am up and cooking breakfast before he is out of bed. I am a stay at home mom. I just started making breakfast on...

    Otherwise I am not interested.

    Without that, you may as well just move along and find someone else. I can forgive and forget a lot of things, but not a lack of either of these things. Why bother pretending to be in a relationship if you don't trust them, or can't believe a word they say? I'm worth more than...
