    I could sit here for hours

    and write about him, but what would that do? It would give me a sense of nostalgia and a surge of depression that would leave me in tears for the rest of the night, because eventually, writing this I would have to face the fact that everything that 'was', 'isn't' anymore...

    It's crazy how "first loves" work.

    Nobody takes it seriously. Your elders classify it as puppy love, your peers classify it as pure fun, but to you it's the most magical and and most wonderful feeling in the world. To be a teenager and be so infatuated and so in love with another human being is absolutely...

    Our stories are unbelievably similar.

    My first love and I met online when I was 17 and he was 21. My dad finally agreed he could come visit me and I've loved him since. He moved across the state to be with me after we only had weekend visits for the first year while I finished high school. We were together 4 & 1/2...

    I Miss My First Love We met on a bus

    Would it be considered love

    if him/her was never really yours? I've been in love with this one girl since I was 8. We were best friends. We were both very small so we both were made fun of but it was ok because we had each other. As time went by we started getting closer. Instead of sitting side by side in...

    How Army Boys Break Your Heart

    He was a bastard. He was full of hate. He treated me like crap. He abused me physically. He abused me emotionally. He led me on. He threatened me. He was reckless. He was a monster. He hurt my family. He made me feel ugly. He told me I was ugly. He made me suffer. He...

    Everybody misses their first love!

    They are the ones who hold all your insecurities. They are the ones who you told your deepest thoughts to. They are the ones who saw you at your most vulnerable, at your very best! The only question remaining is do you wonder if they ever think of you?
