    Well, it was hard to admit to myself.

    . It's been more than a year! Sometimes I pray to God to make me forget you. But I can't. Why? :( Why do you only make me feel this way...  v u l n e r a b l eEven after all the wrong things you've done to me. If I would make a list of pros and cons, I'm sure there would be...

    'I love you' means that I accept you

    for the person that you are and that I do not wish to change you into someone else. It means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times. It means loving you when you're in a bad mood or too tired to do things I want to do. It means loving you when you...

    Not Romantically, But...

    I was with my ex-boyfriend for almost 3 years. We were broken up for about 3 months before he killed himself. This happened last month. When his brother called me with the news, I was totally inconsolable. I miss him so much. I wanted us to stay close and stay good friends. We...

    It's very hard to accept she can stop loving me

    so easily I know I need to quit reading through old text, FB messages, and emails wondering how all those things she said and felt can mean nothing now... I want to fix it but really the more I try the further away I push her letting go is so hard because that hope she'll find...

    There are times when he is forgotten,

    almost like he never happened. I go along with my day and with my boyfriend and I am happy. And then, all it takes is one song, or one movie, or one place, and I am suddenly remembering that, yes, I AM happy. But not as happy as I was with him. I have written him letters...

    I miss her because she was my best friend.

    I could tell her anything. She was there for me. She did everything for me. I just miss her, I miss the way she loved me with everything. Although I don't think we will ever have a romantic love again, I love having her as my friend still. I miss the friendship I had in her more...

    I've been thinking about him a lot lately.

    He wasn't my first love, but he was my longest relationship. And I can't but help to think that someday, somehow he'll end up in my life again. We broke up about a year ago and I can't help but look at his social media just to search for something indicating that he misses me...

    I miss him so much. I've not been without him for 5 years. He says he never wants to be with me again. But I can't help loving him. He is my soulmate, I know it. I don't know how to live without him. It hurts to think about how much I've hurt him and how much he's hurt me. But it...

    Truth is you are a good person.

    We were together for 8 years, and I know most of that time you were no longer in love with me. You still cared enough to stay, because you knew I would fall apart by myself. I left because I couldn't pretend anymore. You accepted it gratefully for the same reason. I'm alone now...

    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...

    "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...
