    it's been 5 months since my boyfriend broke up

    with me. it came out of the blue, and I still miss him terribly. He does not want any contact, as he says it will make it harder to move on. So I am respecting his need for no contact, but it hurts. We were together for 7 years and I really thought we were set for life. He...

    Terribly. And we were never

    even physically intimate. But the way she ignored me and closed herself off emotionally should tell me that she wasn't the right one, but I'm stubborn to believe that.

    Sometimes.....

    Not in a romantic way or anything. I don't think we were ever meant to be lovers, but I think we were meant to be good friends, and I'm sorry that it ended in a way where that couldn't happen. I think about her quite often. I wonder how she's doing, I hope that she is happy, and...

    I was just thinking about my first ever

    When we first met, you told me you didn't

    I Want To Toss Out The Trash

    You broke my heart and took me for granted. You showed me the most amazing joy and the most crippling pain. You raised me up and you knocked me down... again, and again, and again. And I let you. Heck, I *made* you. I presented my heart, no matter what you did, time and time...

    "Everyone has to move on with their life.

    You have to move on, its over. He's not coming back" is what everyone says to people trying to get over a breakup. I believe once you truly love someone, they never leave your heart. I have moved on from my past experiences, but i still miss my ex's. Not all of them, just the...

    {diary} Around this time of the year was

    when I felt really disconnected from you. You faded away from me. Leaving me with unwanted thoughts in my head. These thoughts that were killing and draining me, I cried my eyes and heart out. Sleepless nights came and went. But you were never coming back to me.

    I don't miss us being together

    as a couple because every time we were together I wasn't feeling happy. It was a fake happiness that i swept under the rug for a long time. I had this underlying doubt about us and that doubt grew more and more as we were dating. What I do miss is how we'd laugh and joke like...

    but at other times I hate him so much. It angers me when he gives other girls attention but I can't do anything about it. I choose not to tell him how I feel because I don't think he cares and we aren't even together so why bother. It makes me EXTREMELY angry when he flirts with...

    I kind of miss him but he was a lier.

    He never was honest with me. All I ask from a person is honesty, loyalty and compassion. But he wanted his cake and to be able to eat it too and I wasn't going for it.
