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

    believe in forevers. That everything has an expiration date. I was such an optimist then, arguing that you were wrong. I thought that if two people really cared about one another then things will work out, because they usually work out. You're supposed to fight for something you...

    Sigh...

    I haven't talked to him (except through text) since we broke up. The other day I was checking my voicemail, and the voicemail always (annoyingly) goes through old messages before you hear the new one. Anyway, there were two old messages from him, and listening to them hit like a...

    The worst thing about a break up isn't always

    losing your boyfriend or girlfriend, but loosing a best friend. A person which you feel totally comfortable with, and you can be fully yourself around. Someone that you can complain and vent to whenever, a person you can always text when you're feeling down and alone and you can...

    Ashley, Though we walk separate paths now,

    my love, I miss the beautiful days we once lived. If only we could turn back those ever-ticking hands of time and heal the sorrows we didn’t know were dividing the bond between our souls. I miss your skin beneath my hands, your breath upon my face, and your voice when I...

    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...

    I was 11 when I met my ex

    while ice scating. It was love at first sight. We only started seeing each other when I was 14 and he was 18. He used to come visit me on his motorbike after school. I was so smitten. He was my first love and I gave my all, no holding back, at that age I innocently believed it...

    You know you're finally over them

    once you stop looking through your old messages, pictures, their facebook and instagram, and sulking around listening to sad songs that make you want to cry because it reminds you of them. It was definetly hard to do. It took me about 5-8 months to get over my last ex because he...

    I haven't talked to her in

    so long but I don't think a day goes by where she doesn't cross my mind at some point. It's really depressing to think about all the inside jokes we had then imagining starting over with some new person. It almost feels impossible.

    I really do miss him.

    We broke up for all the right reasons but I still feel so wrong about it. It's almost been two months now. We're still friends and what's really making it hurt is that he still calls me beautiful, still says that he loves me. He still sends me those good morning and good night...

    but the fact I have to see him every week (we are doing this project thing together) and his current girlfriend was involved with the project for a while too just made me feel all weird. Like there was a valid reason we broke up and I don't want to get back together with him but...

    My boyfriend and I were together for 6 months, before that we talked for a year. Everything was perfect. We'd even get up at 4am to see each other. Well anyway. He broke up with me a week ago because I'm too moody and he's sick of it. I tried to get him back but he said he doesn...

    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...

    "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...
