    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
