    I remember my first painful breakup.

    She was younger than I, almost 16. She could do things that the other women of the night twice her age would be jealous of. Well long story short her pimp made her break it off with me after a few freebies. Since then I've gotten my doctorate in gynecology. But no matter how...

    I remember my first painful brake up,

    I was dating a guy for a few years and he said that I'd gotten too old for him and he found another guy. We met when I was 9 and by 16 my voice had grown deep, I developed body hair, I was no longer desirable to my lover father smith. No matter how hard I tried I just couldn't...

    My ex is my best friend

    and it is horrible... He started dating a girl right after we broke up and it still hurts, and a lot of things he has said hurt me. I'm at the point where I want to just cut this "friendship" off, and maybe that way he'll actually learn to appreciate me. I'm just scared because...

    and I was lucky to have him.. But I loved him so I stayed. He got mad when I threatened to break up with him, and would tell me how ugly I am and no man would ever stay with me.. But I loved him so I stayed. He carved my name into his arm so I would be scared to leave him... I...

    I had been dating this girl

    for two years, she was my life support seriously. My break up wasn't exactly the normal kind, more bitter and depressing. When I first met Tanya I was a pretty messed up kid. I never had the common sense and got into the wrong crowds, drinking, doing drugs, sleeping around. It...

    They say the first is the worst.

    I guess this is a different kind of pain. My relationship had to end. Not because we stopped loving each other, nothing bad happened that should make a relationship fall apart. Two people that love each other forced apart. My mother gave me an ultimatum-- family or boyfriend...

    Everyone remembers their first painful breakup

    but it's not a bad thing because for some it was your first "I love you" and really meaning it. Every breakup is always painful, they are never intended to be great. You just have to take the good with the bad and move on at your own pace .
