    Lost Love

    I broke up with my boyfriend two months ago. We were together for 1 year. I only have myself to blame. I knew our relationship wouldn’t work when we first started dating. We lived so far away from each other and we were so immature. It was too serious and we were too young. If...

    I went through a really bad break up a few

    months ago and since then I've gone off the rails. About three months ago I came home early from a business trip and caught her having sex with a guy she works with. I'd kind of known something had been going on for a while we barely spoke. We barely had sex and when we did she...

    If you are one of the lucky people out there

    who hasn't been through a bad break up, it's odd that I don't entirely envy you. It was a life moment that made me grow as a person. I was the one doing the breaking up, and I was terrified. I hate hurting people, and this boy was my best friend. We did everything together...

    It's something my current boyfriend doesn't

    How come society makes us feel bad

    for thinking out the box when all the time it's made up to control us. Come play at secreterotica . com it's sexy, fun the groups and library are wicked and no BS censorship either.

    I broke up with my ex over a year ago.

    We'd been together for four years and I just couldn't take her temper tantrums anymore. Two or three times a week she'd go nuts over some insignificant detail or imagined slight and throw things at me, make me sleep on the sofa or lock me out of the house. She'd then make up...

    It took a year and a half to get my divorce.

    My wife had affairs and left, I filed for divorce, and she kept having the court dates postponed for one reason or another. It's been 10 years and we are now friendly with one another.

    About 3yrs ago, I was in a good relationship.

    We had a terrible fallout and broke up several times. Towards the end, things started getting really bad. We would both be verbally abusive and we even laid hands on each other. He never raised his hand to me or hit me. I only would grab at his wrist or arm when he would walk...

    2 and a half years with someone

    who you loved so deeply can end so violently and viciously, I had never expected that. We had our ups and downs and our moments. We hurt each other in ways that somehow were irreparable. I was always the angry one, he was always the secretive one. There were innumerable things...

    We were together for a year

    and a month exactly. He was my everything. We planned our lives together.. But he decided he didn't want a relationship. I try not to cry but I can't help it. We're still friends and that's the only thing keeping me together.

    This single thing is new territory.

    Break ups are bad, very bad. It has been years since I've been on my own. I don't remember it being like this. It's weird. It feels surreal to come home to an empty apartment.

    because his friend lied and told him I did certain things with him. I'll leave those things to your imagination, but it was pretty bad. Him and my ex were already fighting about something and this guy retaliated by telling him I cheated. Lame, right? Well it wasn't much of a...

    In Hindsight ...

    Never, ever commit to marrying a girl until you first go through a crisis with her. If she rallies to your side and sticks by you no matter what, she's a keeper. If, instead, she turns on you and abandons you let her go. You've just avoided making the biggest mistake of your life...
