    Love Is Indeed Overrated.

    Having gone through three relationships, some might say I haven't tried much but then again I would say to the contrary, it has helped me realize something. I never needed it. The realization I have come to is that you are probably better off on your own. I don't yearn for...

    Kinda....

    I am kinda thinking that Love is just overrated right now. Everyone thinks that love is one of the greatest things around, but its really not. It is one of those things that can, and will hurt you the most. Love is something that can and will destroy your heart, and you soul...

    Is It Worth It?

    It seems that everyone that I've seen falls in love is so stupid.  They act so foolish, only to be crushed later by the person that they thought loved them.  I've never been in a relationship because I've seen what happens to my friends.  I refuse to be used by...

    I hate feeling like I'm not wanted.

    . I don't want you to invest your time in me if you are going to consistently throw in my face how you want to date other people. Don't play with my heart you ***! Don't expect any texts, calls are anything from me!

    Sometimes

    I have had a few boyfriends tell me that they loved me only to break up with me a few months later. I am a little bitter about love I suppose but for good reason. You know how they say that there is a "special" person out there for everyone?? I guess I am thinking that...

    Love Is A Lie

    Ever heard the expression "the best way to lie is to believe the lie yourself"? Yeah well, that's what love is. When someone says they love you, they really don't mean it. They're just simply believing a lie they've been telling them self. Ever wonder what happens when you "fall...

    Love Is Dangerous

    Love is supposed to be the most powerful thing on this planet. But it seems to be something that makes people act irrationally, act against their better judgement, look past many flaws and do horrible things  all in the name of love. How many wars have been fought all...
