    Our story is a little odd and untraditional but id say i met him by sheer fate. I was walking in the woods one day when i found him building a little fire to cook some hot dogs. He was homeless. I decided to help him move some wood. We got to talking and he told me that he was...

    I had this friend that I knew through the

    internet. I always liked him very much and had so much fun with him! Wrote him poetry and drew pictures for him. But lately he did not respond to my messages anymore and changed his Skype feed to: "Even people with a good memory forget their promises." I knew that he meant me...

    I was in a relationship with her

    for 2 years. We had our ups and downs but overall she was a great person. I became aloof with her because I felt smothered as a result we parted ways. She was my best friend, I try not think of her because the thought of her almost brings me to tears. It hurts that she won't...

    I love him more than I can bare but my family didn't liked him so I had to let him go, even though he loved me and I didn't wanted to. I stuck up in a relationship that my parents approved for so long, I cared about him but I never loved him as much as the other one. I kept...

    I don't like making friends

    because they stop talking to me after awhile, they're fake, they have ugly personalities, or I get too clingy especially if its a guy because I like having guy friends more than girls, their funny & chill & they're honest.

    Sara, This is the second time I write about you, the irony being the cruel difference of reasons. I found out today that you are gone and won’t be coming back this time. This cannot be real; this must be a joke, yet I have confirmed for certain that it is not. You should...

    A month ago...I lost a very dear friend to me

    from a drug overdose. I know it happens frequently to people and I'm not looking for sympathy. But I just want to say to those people who have lost someone to similar circumstances: I'm so sorry. I never understood truly how it felt for you... but I do now.

    A good friend died this weekend.

    I'm in complete shock and I have no idea what to say to his friends and family. I'm in another country so I can't physically be with them to grieve.. I don't think it's really hit that its true anyway. He was only 21 and I can't even express how much of a genuine and funny guy...
