    I think love isn't just about the relationship

    Why does it feel like love takes your freedom

    sometimes? Especially when the situation is complicated...Right now my situation is kinda complicated and all I want is my freedom back...I want my heart to feel free again because this kind of love is exhausting. And it feels like my heart is trapped in someone else's hand...

    Love is so fxckxng complicated.

    It hurts my heart; it hurts my brain. Where the fxck did I go wrong? Did I give too little? Did I give too much? Am I overreacting? Is this normal? If it is, then...well, love kind of sucks somtimes.

    Intimate Love

    There is nothingĀ in life quite asĀ beautiful or as complex as love. Its such an exciting feeling; waking up knowing that the person next to me feels love for me. So much love, in fact, that he has chosen to stick with me through thick and thin, to build his life with me, because...

    Love is both a feeling

    and an action. Loving two people at once is a little more complicated. The feeling is simple. Meet somebody. Find them attractive. Find them funny. Find them quirky, find them refreshing, find them to be everything your partner is not. Call it lust, call it love. Call it...
