    Not Sure If I Can

    When I love it is completely - with not only all of my heart but also my very soul...when I submit I give everything - my heart, my soul, my thoughts and my emotions...I am laid bare before my partner. My purpose becomes to please him - to consider him in all things - to make him...

    5 reasons NOT to get back with your Ex: 1) It didn't work out in the first place for a reason.  Think about why you broke up. Think about all the problems you had with your ex. Did his inability to keep a job drive you crazy? Was it her incessant flirting...

    This dumb cop I used to see.

    Even now that I'm not chasing after him, he still tries to play me and lie to me. ***.

    Last year I had this really great friend

    but we grew apart. I have so many great memories and I always wish I could relive them. I spend a lot of time dwelling on it and I know I need to move on but I can't. Any tips?

    It's been 2 years now.

    She has moved on and she looks so happy. We have actually stopped talking. It's the first time since we first met the we have gone a month without talking. Some might think a month that's nothing but if you know us that's a life time. I know she is happy enough to let me go and...

    15.9.14 one of the most memorable experiences

    of my life. This was day when I played my first badminton tournament, I got trashed by my opponent. The scores were 15-2 and 15-5 very bad I know. My dream now is to become a badminton champ. I've learnt to stay alone in college and not feel lonely. I want to become so good in...

    I felt this way over a year

    and a half ago and now that I made drastic changes and moved on, I just want to go back to my old life. I am lonelier than I've ever been. I haven't made any friends. I hate my job. I miss the familiarity of where I used to live and I have a chance at actual relationships. Is...

    Late last year I broke up with an ex.

    We'd been together for the past 15 months and I thought we'd stay together. Yeah we'd been having a few problems but then he broke it to me...and finished we did. A few months after I 'met' someone on here. I felt we had loads in common, etc. We were due to meet when he...

    No one wants to admit the fact that something has not gone the way they wanted it to. I have realised that I find it very difficult to let go of a situation. I will hold on until every last drop of hope has been drained out of it, also draining me in the process. I thought it was...

    She Is Everything I Hate, So Why Cant I Get Her Out Of My Head?

    She tends to drink to a point where she blacks out and has random hook ups. She admittedly lies to me about little things, so I assume she lies about big things as well. She is constantly disgruntled, and its always my job to carry her mood. She is always negative to me, or gives...

    You have to move on when you don't feel happy

    anymore, when you feel like all you do is just argue about the smallest matter, when your partner doesn't care about things that will make you mad, when you can't sit silently and enjoy the silence anymore. Let me tell you one thing, you are in charge of your own happiness...

    I'm a 19 year old girl.

    My parents are pretty serious about education, I knew that from a very young age. So I worked hard and I excelled in academics. But I didn't do it because I wanted to, I did it because I wanted my parents affection. I lived in fear. I was slapped by my mother every time I scored...
