    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...

    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?

    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...

    I can't remember the last time I've ever cried so hard. Keep in mind that I don't cry, and it's quite rare to ever catch me showing any sign that something is wrong. Caitlyn has always been my childhood hero and best friend. Her family and mine would always have dinner together...

    How Army Boys Break Your Heart

    Some may slap a lable on love stating that you have to be 'a certain age' or having conquered years of knowledge to actually know what love is. However, these people are severely mistaken. I am eighteen years old, and I have loved. Anyone at any age can be in love. A seven year...

    Unfortunately.

    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...

    I do miss my first love. Not always, necessarily the person, but the feelings that I shared with that person. Nonetheless, it was doomed from the beginning. I met this guy on a whim, it was the summer before my freshman year of college. He was from Cali, I, well, from all over...

    It's crazy how "first loves" work.

    Today he sat on the other side of the cafeteria-

    but it seemed everyone's heads were magically arranged, and so we had a clear view of each other. So for about 35 minutes we stole glances of each other. Then again, I am sort of blind, so maybe he wasnt looking at me after all
