    I'd kind of given up on love

    because my life was such a disaster at the time. But I hired a dog walker who turned into my girlfriend who turned into my wife. She was a single mom so I became a father in the deal. I felt so much love I could barely believe it. Then she betrayed me in every way possible. But...

    I just freaked out and slammed my phone against

    the floor I've been with him for 3 years. Yeah we had our ups and downs but now he went to a new low. He's been having sex with all of these different girls lately. He showed me the hickey once and today made the second time. I couldn't do anything but scream, " I hate...

    Sometimes I feel like I'm taking a step back in

    my healing. Since I have kids with my ex there is no escape from the man who killed a part of me. I hate having my kids watched by the woman who he had an affair with him. She struts around like she did nothing wrong. How she doesn't feel guilt for her part is beyond me. I...

    How was I betrayed in love?

    No, my wife did not cheat on me, as far as I know. I feel betrayed by her lies. Many little lies pertaining to our money and how she spends it. Little amounts and bigger amounts, all unaccounted for. We had a budget that we made together. She has never been able to abide...

    I was involved with a much older man,

    who in the end, turned out to be nothing more than a child in an adult body. He betrayed me, when I was sick. It left me feeling beyond hurt, and broken. I do not regret what we had, or how it ended, because if it didn't end, I would not be with the man, I Love so much, and who...

    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.

    I was gullible and a vulnerable queen to

    promises. Perhaps, it is because I had this craving that no one else could feed but the man that took the vows with me. I only wanted a complete family. I don't want my children to heal a deep-seethed emptiness which is beyond measure. I did not only love but was fooled. I was...

    on your finger it is open season on other women. They are urgent in their desires to try as many women as they can. It's reciprocal in so many instances too. I had been seeing, and having really good sex with one of the guys in the group, but he only reciprocated his feelings...

    To love, it feels great.

    To betrayed, not so great. All I can ever say is, "You love and then you learn". Love's a double edged sword, it can cut for you and can cut you.. Or should I say, 'Will'.

    How Does One Ever Begin To Trust Again?

    How does one ever begin to trust again? They say if you fall off a bike or a horse you should get right back on. What if you break your leg or arm in that fall? Sure that bone will heal in time, but it is not the same as having your heart broken. We give ourselves to others...

    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?
