    Worst Feeling Ever...

    Back many moons ago while still in college, I was in a 5 1/2 year long relationship with a woman who upon first meeting, had a 10 month old little girl named Madeleine. After six months of dating, she finally told me that she had a daughter as I was always wondering why we were...

    Yes. Like the many of you ,

    I've been in love and was betrayed by a man I was very much in love with. I couldn't think of a world without him. I trusted him more than myself and had dreams of planning a life together. Until it all came crashing down. One day, like any ordinary day , at a restaurant( our...

    Twice. When I was 14,

    my first (and so far only "official") gf revealed to me after we'd dated for two weeks that she was two-timing me, and that she only said she'd date me because she "felt sorry for me". Then in Freshman year of college, I fell deeply in love with a girl from my math class. I told...

    Hurting

    The thought of you touching someone else made me sick. Finding out what you did put me in the hospital. My trust, my heart, my sanity, taken in the blink of an eye. You're more than a cheater, you're a thief.

    I am in love with you.

    But you are no longer in love with me. Yeah, sure you say you love me. But you don't. Haven't been for most of our marriage. Why did you marry me? Why did you have to be with her? You messed everything up- not me- so why am I the one hurting?

    Six years ago, I dated a terrible person.

    Sure, he was sweet and loving at first - the perfect guy - but not long after we started dating, he changed. He was verbally abusive, calling me every horrible name you can think of. He'd stay out late almost every night claiming he was "hanging out with friends", when he was...

    I have been married for almost 17 years.

    I found out two years ago my husband cheated on me. I'm still not over it. He doesn't seem to be trying to make our marriage better and is generally self absorbed. I don't know if I want to stay with him but we have four children and a lot of financial obligations together. I...

    I loved you, you loved me.

    I never stopped but you betrayed me. I still love you even now but I can't ever see you again. WE both need to move on after all we did to each other. I will always love you but this is too much.

    Don't get I to a relationship

    if you can't give it your all. Your absolute 100%. Relationships take work. There must be love, trust, honesty, faith, understanding, and loyalty. If you can't do any of that, you're setting yourself up for failure and to hurt the other person.
