    I decided to go on a date last night with

    someone new. It's the first time I've dated since things ended with the man I loved. It went horribly. This new man started to try and kiss me, hands were wandering... And you know what I did... I burst into tears. I'm not ready to let go. I'm not ready to move on.

    When I was 17 I met somebody

    that I had genuine feelings for as I have never been close with any other guys even now that I'm 19. What I don't understand is how he can lead me on and forget about me whilst I still have these feelings. They just creep back sometimes. He was never serious I knew that I was...

    You have taught me one of the hardest lessons

    I've had to learn in this life: how to live without someone I love. It's also one of the most painful- my chest still tightens when I think of you, which I try not to do often, but it happens anyway. Maybe you'll say I deserved this, and part of me agrees. But the other part...

    People say that it’s better to have loved

    and lost than to never loved at all, but I’m starting to wonder if that’s even true. Because in truth love hurts so much.

    This isn't really anywhere close to anyone

    else's experiences, most others dated or even married someone, only to have their heart broken. My experience isn't exactly like that, but this is mostly anonymous right? I had a wicked crush on a girl for years, on so many occasions I tried to get to know her better, but she...

    For all those heart broken people reading this.

    .. This is what I've learnt to help me through months of pain. I hope it helps you At first you need to learn to breath through the pain and emptiness. You accept your thoughts- but let them pass by. He may be your last thought at night and your first waking feeling- but in...

    In Love With My Teacher

    I realize that everything I write will seem extremely insipid and cliched, but that doesn't make my thoughts any less sincere or true. Let's just get the facts out there: I'm sixteen, and my teacher is about 15 years older than me. I've honestly never felt this way about anyone...

    The I. Q. of Love.

    Love is stupid. Love is dumb. It has an IQ comparable to a packet of stale crackers. Don't get me wrong, love is without doubt one of the most important forces in anybody's life; it is wonderful, it is the closest many of us come to living with magic. It's just not...

    I'm shell shocked today.

    I came across a hard drive with all my computer pix dating back to 2004. My wedding, the births of my children, our moves from house to house, our family vacations... all there. It's clear to me that I was very in love with my life, with my family and my husband. I...

    . He never loved me. All the time wasted.. Why? Why can't someone just be honest for once and say what they feel? I poured my heart n soul into him.. Proposed marriage to him. He even said yes.. Only thing I never got the chance to say is we're pregnant. Didn't want to put him...

    I think at one point in a person's life,

    they will experience this. I have experienced love for people and not getting love in return. It's not a good feeling, and when it happens, you feel like you won't love anyone like you loved that person. But always remember that when you are going through a break up, that God is...

    I held on to her so long, long after i knew it was hpoeless. She has brought her career to an end. Wrecked her life. Kept pleading with me to "save me", calling me her "hero" at the same time she pushed me away emotionally. Tonight she came over and i made us dinner. Then we...

    When You Are Rejected

    As we all know, getting rejected is never pleasant. In fact the feeling it leaves you with really sucks and is sometimes hard to get over, and it's especially worse when the reasons are beyond your control. However, if anything good came out of my latest rejection, it was that I...

    for that which it can't have. Funnier still how people will take advantage of that. I loved him. He knew it. I told him so. He said it back to me easing his way further into that place inside your chest that hides away where nobody else looks. At first it's only whirlwind and...
