    Weird, Heartbreaking Experience

    It started at a concert at school where I was hanging out with a friend that used to go to the same school as I did, but has left two years ago. I hadnt seen her for a long time, so we had quite a lot to talk about. We were just walking around a bit when we walked into a few old...

    A Few Times

    I have rejected one guy, and completely broken his heart. I felt bad about it, but he just wasn't my type. Sometimes you just have to say no. He hated me for a while, but it didn't phase me. Rejection is just necessary sometimes.

    Yeah!!! ...

    Yeah!!! when i was in my teens, i did many a time, especially if i didn't fancy a fella! i wouldn't go out with him. When your young i don't think you realise, untill you get older, and then when you think back you think, ''ah'' he was ''cute'' after all.

    It Hurt Me More!

    I'm not very good at rejecting someone, and someone that's been good to me makes it very difficult.  This was someone that I ADORE but could never see myself being intimate with.  I was very nice and explained that I didn't think that we would be a good match and why...

    Let's Be Straightforward

    I had this classmate whom I've known since sophmore year. We didn't talk much at first, but we were partnered together on a project or two. We finally developed a somewhat lopsided friendship during senior year. I considered him a friend, but I didn't feel as close to him as he...

    Friends can make things awkward for me..

    In high school, I had a lot of guy friends that I thought nothing more of than just friends. But they can make it so awkward for me by trying to hint at liking me, and even though I ignore their advances, they continue to be aggressive, and this leads to them asking me on dates...

    He loves me; he has for years.

    I've rejected this love and yet he has remained by my side – my friend, my support. He’s seen my heart break with other guys; he’s held me during the storms of my life and celebrated my joys (and I his, I truly hope). I think he understands me better than I understand...

    It started out three years ago, when I was in a new class (but with a lot of people I already knew, only with a bunch of new additions). There was this guy, called Michael. We were both in a kind of competition, because we were both very studious and had the best grades (I was...

    I Rejected Someone... Although I Don't Blame Myself

    My problem is, the people who like me are never people I like back. Not in 'that way.' Although a great deal of the time I feel like guys only want to be with you because you're a girl. That may sound stupid, and/or confusing but let me explain what I mean. Say you're...

    A Couple Times

    Both were in high school, I felt terrible about it both times. I don't like hurting people. But I've also dated someone just because I didn't want to reject them, and that always turns out worse. So... yeah.

    I am quite sad about it,

    because she was a good soul. I am glad I am loved a lot by a girl, but her baggage scared me. She asked me on Facebook if I liked her. I told her that I like her as a friend only, and then apologized. She told me the next day that she was crying yesterday. She feared I wouldn...

    I met him in one of my classes, and we hit it off rather quickly. Soon enough, we were dating, and things were going great. I really liked him. He shared my sense of humor, we had intersecting world views with some minor differences, but nothing major. We didn't share the same...
