    The sad part is although my heart is broken I

    don't care because i'd suffer endlessly to see you happy. If that means you're happy with another woman than so be it. You mean more to me than myself, and that's scary. You will always have a special place in my heart, and I believe that someday, somehow, that place will fade...

    Sometimes I still think about him.

    I know he still thinks about me. He still talks about me and asks about me. I really don't know if I miss him or not. I do know I don't need to. He's so bad for me. He's literally a flame. Unpredictable and liable to get out of control at any time. He's a damaged soul who can...

    we were together for two years and both being in high school it was rough, so many people hated us together but we never let it get the better of us, we spent almost everyday together while we were teenagers, learnt so much from each other, but best of all we experienced what...

    It's the Feeling That Is Missed Most.

    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...

    I Ended My Emotional Love Affair With My First Love

    I have been having an emotional love affair, this summer, with my first love  after he called me, after 30 plus years.  We have only talked on the phone, but he brought back all the love I had locked inside me since we parted.  He and I were meant to be soul mates and it was...

    I saw him 2 weeks ago.

    It was heartbreaking. And ever since I can't help but wonder if he would've married me if I had stuck around. Which makes me question my whole life in general. Because I'm married, and I often think about how if I wouldn't have moved in with the man who is now my husband, we...

    Still Grieving

    I still have the most vivid dreams about him and it has been five years since we even stood face to face.  I will never see him again and I know that.  We are on opposite coasts now.  I am married, and have 2 wonderful children that I wouldn't give up for anything...

    It was the summer before my senior year

    and I was seventeen. I didn't have any friends at the time besides people I may have shared small talk with in class or at lunch at school. I was painfully quiet. No boy had ever showed any real interest in me. I was spending the summer alone until my dad got cruise tickets for...

    I just feel hurt and cheated we only dated

    for a few months but i cut all contact with her when I started to have serious health issues because of embarrassment. So many opportunities were ruined. I know people have worse problems in the world but that doesn't mean this feeling doesn't suck

    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 wonder if he thinks of me

    as often as he seems to cross my mind. I know I remember who he was and not who he probably is today. But I hope he still thinks of me. We were each others first. Those times really were amazing. He now belongs to another and so do I. I dont want to get back together and both of...

    I do not miss him because I loved him

    so much. I miss him because he was my friend for the formative years. Plus he's the first person I have ever loved and cared for deeply. This is an awkward story so I hope if you read this you understand. This is a crazy story because in the end the truth is he was my first...

    with his high school friends whom I see more often than he does. I think its natural to think of him. His friends agree that what he did was ****** up. I just wish I could've left all of that behind. I'm drunk. I know you're drunk right now. Could I maybe be on your mind too...

    Love You So Much

    The bus was almost empty. He travelled on this line every day. It took him around 25 minutes to get to work. But that was all what he had. She was there at the second stop and later she travelled farther down town. They never talked. Probably she didn't even noticed that he...

    Where do I begin? I miss him everyday.

    My first love was in high school. We truly loved each other but we were to young to figure out how to make love work. After 5 years I drove away, with tears in my eyes and regret in my heart. It's been many years now and the regret has become the one thing I can always count on...

    It's crazy how "first loves" work.
