    But...

    then I realize that I am loved deeply and that he would do anything in his power, and has, to prove it. He is amazing, brilliant (smartest man I have ever dated in fact), sexy, and all mine. MMMMM

    Absolutly!

    Love is a form of delusional mental illness characterised by obsessive thoughts about a person.It is certainly responsible for putting many people in the mental hospital, I know it was certainly instrumental it putting me there once.When I see a suggestion of love my inner self...

    It Depends

    When it comes to loving a friend as a friend or loving family, I believe. But BF/GF or Husband/Wife I don't really want. Aromantic Asexual and S.F.L. representin'! Goodbye.

    Where Is The Love?

    Hi there! I was been wondering, where the love has gone and why no one seems to care about the love anymore. I have lost faith in love and I hope I will recover love someday. Please come back into my life and convince me that there is love out there.I will always love you but...

    Thanks To Past Experiences

    I've been with several people and none of them ended very well. The first had been with me and we had been decent with each other though we never really went out on dates, at least it never felt like a date. Though we were together they openly told me they were in love with two...

    romantically or platonically.

    i know no one holds those feelings for me and when people tell me i just know they are lying. it bothers me quiet a bit when people try to say something that i know isnt there. do yourself a favor and keep it to yourself.

    Good Guys Finish Last.

    I hate to sit on  a pity-pot and whine, but it's so frustrating for nice guys like me.  I the kind of person who is genuinely loving and supportive, compassionate and generous... to a fault.  I love to party and have a good time and I'll hang out with different...

    Sadly

    I am not totally a cynic when it comes to love but the balance is shifting in favor of cynicism and not entirely by choice. Rather by design, it's years of disappointments and holding onto a faith you are not even sure is even valid in this world you live in. Love seems to take a...

    I guess in this post,

    it won't be about how I want to be loved but I can't because of trust issues, or because I am afraid of being broken hearted. Actually, I've never experienced anything about love and when I was younger, I use to imagine me being in love. Funny huh, yeah well, not any more. I...

    I Hope To Stop Being So

    I've been in love twice in my life, and although neither ended in some tragic fashion, they each left me affected in a different way. There are many other experiences that feed into my cynicism as well, but it is definitely shaped by my own experiences with love. But I hope to...

    Life, Love And Being Cynical

    I have been in love before. Whether it was "really real" or just infatuation, I'm not going to get into here, and I'm not going to guess. But since those relationships in which I believed I was "in love" have since come to an end, it's left me in a strange place. I hate chick...

    I do love people and care deeply

    for every living thing, the problem is that I feel and almost truly believe that I am unlovable. I've been told I don't have a lot of self-respect, I don't want to be one of those people with low self-esteem who talks about how lame they are.. but I'm not sure how to look in...
