    I remember it like it was yesterday

    but it was 23 years, 4 months and 5 days ago! She was the first woman I proposed to. Well almost proposed to... just before I did, she said "I don't want to see, hear or speak to you... ever again!"

    I think it's easier for girls to get over

    breakups. from a girl say it's over, it's really over!! girls can detach themselves easily. .. I wish I was like that!

    I really didn't expect to cry

    so much. Even after I cried without him knowing, I eventually saw him again and cried even more then. He saw my whole soul bare. And didn't even shed a tear.

    I remember when my 1st boyfriend broke up with

    me coz I don't want to have sex with him. I don't have to do it just to prove that I am worthy of his love. And while we were us, he tried to flirt and date one of my close friends. He's a ******* *******. But that was 9 years ago. I've learned from one of our mutual friends...

    8th grade, when I first took love at a serious

    level with that someone.. I thought she would take it faithful with me too until she came up with a lie to break up with me... and ended up dating another guy right after we broke up. Honestly, I went out of control and started getting depressed almost everyday in school after...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    By the end it felt like she'd tore my heart out.

    It hurt my heart that she'd actually cheated on me with one of my closest friends. Me and this girl started going out and it was for just about 3 years straight never on and off. I didn't find out until one of her friends who felt bad finally decided to tell me, that her and my...
