    It's the first one in 7 years I have not tried to make sure her night was amazing. But I can't. She moved in w her boyfriend now, that story will come later. But it has pushed us farther apart. It's miserable. I know he isn't doing the things she deserves. He isn't making her...

    Sucks when relationships start to change.

    Especially when it's with that one person you always wanna be with or at least think you do

    Me and my boyfriend haven't had any privacy in

    months. It's driving me insane. I feel so distant from him. I don't know what my problem is but it just feels like he doesn't make time to be alone together. Our parents are on us 24/7 and as a couple, couples need privacy. Just really irritating to me. I miss him. I can be with...

    I want to ball and wail

    and scream. I want to pull my hair and rake my nails down my arms. I want to bang my head against the wall. I want to smash my face on the floor. I want to jump off a cliff and dive into the abyss. It's like my subconscious is trying to rid itself of all these feelings of...

    I Wish Things Could Be Better...

    We had such a great, intimate and friendly relationship. Then the loss of a job, near-death injury and drug abuse pushed us apart. I wish things were like they were back before the problems started. Please. I miss my friend.

    I do miss my one ex because he was just

    so perfect so loving and sweet but yet he still knew how to make me laugh and how to take a joke. But I guess the only thing I really miss is how sweet he was because he was the first guy to ever treat me right and show me how I'm supposed to be treated. Also due to the fact how...
