    I haven't been on this website long,

    but all I seem to see is, "i'm the other woman", "she cheated on me", "i cheated on her", "he cheated on me". It feels like it should ruin love, hearing about people constantly betraying or being betrayed. It makes you forget what it's all really about - love. I understand that...

    Real Love Is Almost Nonexistant

    "Tis better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all".  That's a load of ****.  Being alone was painful, yes, but not like this.  This is worse.  Yeah, I still believe in Real Love, but know that it's very rare and few people really find it.

    Our Wonderful Connection

    We met each other in university. I went to tell him something and he said to me: „We have phoned, haven't we?“ I was thunderstruck because my surname is such a common one. Actually the phone call was a few months ago. He couldn't mean that, but he did. From the beginning I...

    Love is patient, love is kind.

    It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always...

    Believe It to Receive It.

    Every True Love Takes A Small Part Of Your Heart And Soul Forever

    I believe when you truly loved someone, a small part of them is always with you. Saying goodbye and letting go can break your heart for sure. But it happens for a reason. Only God knows why. Sure, it's difficult not to get sad or get a bad attitude once in a while. We've all been...

    One thing I think is important in

    love: “Relationships-of all kinds-are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto some of it, but most will...

    Real Love

    To think someone is beautiful and to have resulting lust is not love. Yes, it creates a wonderful feeling. One that is usually fleeting though. Real love is not defined by actions nor is it sweet nothings. Love is not just a perspective where flaws are not considered. To love...
