    The worst one. I broke it off

    because I hated our age difference. I was afraid of him getting old and dying. Soooo messed up for a 23 year old girl to be worried about. He was only 40!

    I connected with her freshmen year of high

    school. To anyone else we were just simply best friends. To me, she was my first true love. Long walks in a local park and movie nights with junk food. I embraced every moment with her. She was my first kiss. I thought we would go further until after dating only two months...

    I dated a guy for about seven

    and a half years. I met him when I was 11 years old. I fell for him instantly and I have no idea what I ever saw in him. He treated me like sh**t and did unforgivable things to me. The end.

    Last night I finally ended an emotionally

    abusive relationship for good. I have tried to break up with him three other times but every time he would manage to coax me back by promising to change and making grand gestures of love. But this time I have blocked him out of my life. I can't help but think if this is all a...

    My first very painful break up was with my

    first love. He became everything to me, he was everything I had wanted in a guy since I was a little girl, the person I described when I was little ended up being him. The first time we broke up, he broke up with me because my parents didn't like him, because he was joking and...

    He didn't break up with me.

    I did. It was painful. There was tears, crying, anger but in the end it was the right thing for the both of us to do. We were together for two years and we were happy but eventually we just slowly drifted apart plus "reasons". Although we were still a couple, the same spark and...

    I actually was the one

    who ended this relationship. I was 14 when we started dating, and I broke it off when I was 16. He was the bad boy- the opposite of what I was then. Now, I can be a bit of a badass;) We had a lot in common, and we had a great deal of fun while we were together. The problem was...

    He was a thousand miles away.

    We never met in person. Never had the chance to do anything couples would do together other than talk sweetly. I ended it. I regretted it immediately, but it was too late. It's been over two years and I think I'm almost over it.
