    You Can't Tell Me Who To Love.

    I told them I broke up with her, I told them we fell out, I told them we now hated each other. I lied through my teeth. I did it to protect her. And then I ran away. It's not the only reason I ran but it was the last straw. It's my life and I'll love who I love, I'll be with who...

    I loved my ex boyfriend a lot.

    We were so perfect together. We were like two peas in a pod, he smiled, I smiled. When we would argue we would know exactly what the other was thinking or when he'd say something romantic he knew exactly how I was gonna act. It was the hardest to surprise each other because we...

    I'm In Love With My Cousin (our Family Would Be Angry If They Found Out!)

    I've loved my cousin (let's call him R) since I was 13. It's a great but sad love... I haven't told my family about it since they're publicly anti-****** and the adult men are anti-gay. My cousin is 18, and I'm 16. But I believe age doesn't matter, as long as we love each other...
