    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...

    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...

    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...

    I was naive then. I cried my eyes out

    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...

    My best friend, we grew up together.

    I loved him so much and still now, if I'm honest. I promised myself I'd never fall in love so hard again. The pain I would not wish that upon anyone.

    I sent you a goodbye letter.

    It made me feel good, a closure, in a way.

    I remember I'd broke up with a boy I dated

    for 7 months. He flirted with me that's how we came together. I didn't know if I really liked him. The first person I ever dated broke up with me. So I felt insecure and did the same to others. I did this to him. Then I realized that I did like him maybe even loved him. He got a...

    he told me he loved me, and I secretly loved him but wouldn't admit it. I was too scared it wouldn't work out and I would lose him, then I left the country. 10 years later he messaged me. I had never stopped thinking about him, and he said he thought about me all the time too...

    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...
