    I was sixteen, in love

    and totally attached to my boyfriend. But when it ended I had trouble coping. I wanted to end my life of course and I had no idea that I had more of life to experience and relationships with others as well. I was devastated.

    He was an animal, the way he manipulated me,

    used me, like I was a puppet and he was the master, broke me off from the rest of the world, and played with my mind, like I'm some guinea pig, & all I wanted back then was too please him more, getting over him will be very difficult, but possible, though he has changed me for...

    They say "they always come back"

    but he never did. I think that shows me he never really cared about me, that he never loved me, that I wasn't as important as I thought. I had never cried because of a guy or an ex boyfriend until he came into my life. Six months have gone without him and I had to rebuild...

    So I met this boy last year

    and he was really sweet. I liked him after a few weeks of knowing him. He liked me the first day he saw me. He went up to my close friend and told her to ask me if I like him and of course I did. A week later, he asked me out. It was my best friend who got us together. We had a...

    I lost my boyfriend yesterday.

    He told that he has never loved me. All our love was illusion. I think I can live without him. But I miss. I wanted to be a perfect girl for him. Unfortunately, it's necessary for him. It is very hard. He broke my life.. And heart

    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...

    We just fell apart. He wasn't good enough

    for me anymore. I was getting bigger and he couldn't handle it. He was too small and it was simply so uncomfortable. I struggled anytime we were together. I just could not take it anymore so, I broke it off as soon as I found a new one that satisfied my needs. He was even...

    Had a lot of relationships during high school,

    but no break up hurt more than the last one. We dated a year and a month, and the year was perfect. What hurt a lot was watching us spiral down that last month. Now I've heard that she's had multiple rebounds with guys from the local college she goes to for Dual Enrollment, and...

    For everyone who is going through a breakup,

    Yesterday I woke up and while I was doing a few things I smiled to myself because I didn't have that weird feeling on my chest anymore. I still remember how painful it was to wake up in the morning after having a horrible nightmare, how awful it was to remember that he wasn't...

    We were two completely different people

    who happened to fall in love with one another. Although we had our similarities, our differences were too great. The timing wasn't right but I'm still grateful for all the moments I've shared with you, so from the bottom of my heart, I thank you. Thank you for making me feel...

    Of course, it wasn't the first break up

    that I went through, but I know that it was the most painful for me. I remember that he was there with the s*ut that he'd been two timing me with... she had me backed in a corner and slapped me. Two of her friends stopped him from stepping in to help me.

    for days. The guy I was dating had another girlfriend who cashed him out all the time. He fell asleep in a movie we were watching and his phone wouldn't stop going off. I took down the number calling and called her later. What a douche he told me he went to work everyday but...

    First break up is always the worst one.

    I can't give full on detail about how I felt since I no longer have these feelings. All I can say is that I believed I couldn't live without him and that my feelings of love for him would never fade. I remember hoping he would take me back but it never happened. This was 6...

    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.

    I remember it like it was yesterday.

    I cried everyday until I got tired of crying. I didn't eat and all I wanted to do was sleep. I didn't leave home unless I absolutely had to. It was by far the worst experience ever. I thought I'd never be happy again. I thought my life was over. Then one morning I woke up and...
