    Every time I like a guy

    It might as well be yesterday. I could tell by her voice when she coldly said "We need to talk" exactly what was going to happen. I spent the next two hours curled up in a fetal position clutching the toilet, sobbing and throwing up.  She tossed me out like...

    I was in a relationship with someone

    who didn't love me. It took me a while to realize I was just being used, actions always speak louder than words. If someone wants & loves you nothing will keep them away, some men just don't know how to appreciate a good woman. Ladies, never chase after a man who doesnt know...

    I actually still love him

    but I recently discovered he is an asexual and even though we dated a while ago it actually makes a lot of sense! It still hurts though.

    To love someone is to entrust them with the

    power to crush your soul, your spirit and your heart, and trusting them not to do it. I guess I trusted the wrong person.

    before is the reason I hardly like/crush on anyone. Since the person I loved only liked me as a friend(yes I know friend zoned) I just lost all my feelings for anyone, that isn't my family, and everyone! She had my heart for 4 years! And I kept reminding her how much I loved her...

    Happened to me a few years back.

    I was his close friend, he will invite me on dinners etc, then one day he just said that he is courting this girl. I was so heartbroken, I was thinking that maybe I just assumed too much. I quickly moved on, didn't communicate with him for a few months. I am much better now and...

    Exact opposite for me.

    ..a girlfriend is in love with me but I don't know if I love her. I love being with her and we are sexually compatible but sometimes I wonder if the grass is greener on the other side. I tried to stop talking to her but after 4 months I couldn't ..is this what love is?!
