    It just happened. My boyfriend of 3 years found

    completely innocent text messages from another guy in my phone. I am an idiot. My boyfriend was good looking, extremely successful, and really took care of me. We lived together for a year. I am sinking into the worst depression I have ever felt. I have nowhere to go and no one...

    Pathetic...

    He was my first kiss, my first love, and my first heartbreak! I was 16! Such a wonderful age to be in love. He was the first bf I ever wanted to be around. I would be fine if I could just hug him. For the first time I was truly in love! And I was blissfully happy! Sure we had...

    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...

    I am currently going through a very hard

    breakup. Me and my ex were together for 3 years and he was my rock. We were fighting to much, and one day he just dropped me like a heavy weight :( I miss him so much and I would do anything for him back

    I Couldn'T Breathe.

    The summer before my sophomore year of high school, I started dating this guy named Jason. He was a grade above me, and we had known each other for quite awhile. Before Jason I had never really had a boyfriend. I was always to shy to talk to guys and having a boyfriend was never...

    I dated my high school sweet heart

    for 3 years. We didn't have sex. I respected her so much. I was so in love. We went to a dance and while I was dancing with her, I told her I was in love with her. She walked away from me. I asked what was wrong and she said she didn't love me. I tried to move on in high...

    My first painful breakup,

    was when I was 21. Not having experienced love from my parents, I substituted a romance with my first girlfriend as love. This relationship went for 12 months, I put all my energy into it and when she decided to start dating someone else, I was more than heart broken, I was...

    I don't know if it's common with guys

    but distance can be a b***h. I had almost a week and a half of depression because she broke up with me. And honestly I was loyal. I had many FRIENDS who were girls but I never let even one of them get too close. I still feel bad when I think about it.

    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...

    We were twelve. I have dressed

    and been at peace with being a girl in a boy's body all my life. I got a huge crush on Josh, the cutest boy on earth, but he didn't know (as most of the school did not outside of the nurse, principal and vice p..) so when he heard I liked him and he asked me out I knew I'd have...

    Sadly, my first breakup was

    when my first marriage ended. My first husband. We didn't date until we were older but I was friends with him since we were 10. Never ever thought he would cheat and leave me but he did. I was in denial. The pain and hurt and disbelief is beyond words. It didn't help that he...

    I remember my first painful breakup.

    I tend to leave lots of destruction in my path, so it didn't end well. His parents probably want to kill me too. Uhh, it is a long story.

    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 loved this boy, he was perfect in my eyes, but I was too shy to speak to him at school, so I just kept thinking about him, daydreaming, lacking behind in school work, then one day one of my friends told me his name, so I added him on this social network, we started speaking...

    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...

    How do you stop thinking of them

    once it's over? I'm not promiscuous, I'm not trying to go that route. I stay busy but they're constantly on my mind.
