    All night it was difficult to sleep I feel empty

    His name was Phil. I was 16

    and he was 17. We were madly in love! He was my first love, we never had sex either. He lived 2 hrs away and saw him every time I had to go to the hospital- since I had cancer, he did too. That's how we met. We were reaching up to 10 months of us dating when the day before he...

    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...

    On the December 2012,

    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’ve been trying to figure out how to write

    this for a month now. Every time I start, I always get off track or start to sound a little depressing. Although I suppose that’s what happens when you try to fit three years of thoughts into one small account. The essence of the story is that what I want more than anything is...

    This isnt the first one,

    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...

    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...

    My first painful break-up was sloppy.

    No clean-cut "it's over", just a year of being strung along and being the boy on the side. Friends tried to tell me that she wasn't worth it, and I would actually get angry with them. I was stubborn, I knew that but how could they know what love felt like, right? A girl flirted...

    My first ketchup bottle.

    . She was so beautiful, red and with a mysterious flavor.. I miss her so much.. My mom threw her out of the window because she didn't liked me "talking to a bottle of ketchup", but she wasn't just a bottle of ketchup.. She was Ketchilia, my first love.

    It Didn't Make Any Sense

    I was 16 years old (she was 15). The past four weeks had been complete bliss. I had never been so completely and absolutely happy in my whole life. Life seemed perfect. And it was just the start (I was certain) of *all* my dreams coming true. I had this ecstatic feeling of...

    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...

    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 .
