    I have tried an tried again to be what he wants.

    I can never be. The moment I have any happiness. He has to crush it. Why do I not just go away? Six foot under cant be that bad. No hurt, no chest crushing pain, no loneliness, no more being not enough. All I ever wanted was to love and be loved. Why is that to much? Why am I...

    I have so much love to give,

    but no one wants to take it or share theirs with me. Why am I so hard to love? I take care of my man when I'm in a relationship and I can't even get an honest, "I love you."

    Love that is a tricky thing,

    because before you can feel it you have to personally have it. I have been in a marriage that I know I love my husband but do not feel the love coming from him. It would seem that he has forgotten how to love himself , and this is evident in his vocal tirades. So, do I stay...

    That Is the Thing

    Holidays are such a odd thing on EP.  I guess everywhere in life really. Some are ecstatic...happily in love Some are sad and alone Some are in relationships where they feel alone Some are spending their first year alone after a death or break-up or deployment. Some...

    Wanting. It's everything.

    Sometimes I wake up with it crawling on my skin, its pangs in my heart. I just want to be loved. I want to feel wanted. I want someone who touches me and not just my body; someone who hears me, not just my words. Let me know a love that draws me in without tearing me apart.

    My eyes close 
 and I see our first

    kiss
 when you spun me around,
 your hand landing softly on the small of my back
 the other holding my wrist, pulling me close, quick
 and your lips pressing against mine
 with such passion 
and conviction; 
I would’ve sworn you loved me

    Love

    I heard a saying: "Find someone who has had a difficult life because they are the ones who know how to love." I think this is true. I would love to be loved by someone who has had a difficult life. I know I've had one too. We could heal together.

    I Can't Live With This Hole In My Heart Anymore.

    I'm as desperate to give love as I am to feel it. I don't care what you look like or what you've done, I need you. I need you because I want to love you. I want to hold you against my heart and allow you to see into my soul, to give you every part of me that you desire. To brush...

    Beauty is a useless trait.

    It's a curse. A life sentence that destines you to failed relationships, ignored genuine qualities, and sexual harrassment. All my life I've been told I was beautiful, and for a while I became really cocky after hearing it for so many times. But it subsided with time. Now, I...

    I want to be that girl,

    to be special, to be loved. I want him to look at me and see his future, see his heart. I want to be worth it, worth any risk and any pain so that we can be together. It hurts to be ordinary, to be insignificant. It hurts to know that I'm not special. It hurts to realize I am...

    So in a recent post I pointed out a line

    that really stuck out to me and it still keeps bugging me. It basically says how girls just have this insatiable need to feel loved. Well maybe that's true. Maybe Ive worked hard in relationships that were doomed to fail simply to keep the feeling of being loved and cared for. I...

    I believe good loving relationships are mostly

    built rather than due to what a person is like? I believe you should search for someone that is fundamentally compatible obviously, but after that you have to work on building an atmosphere that is right for the both of you, and communicate your needs in order to have a good...

    I want someone to make me their princess. Someone who will treat me with dignity and respect. Who will want me at their side no matter what. I want someone who cares about me as much as I care about them. I want someone who is a diehard Christian. I want someone who will court me...

    I think everyone wants to be loved.

    It's hard though, when you grow up different. You grow up feeling unloved and worthless and you just want one person to show you your worth. To be there no matter what, to show you love....someone who'll never leave.

    Who doesn't want to be loved?
