    and feel so stuck in a dead relationship. I did promise to love, ect until death do us part, but the person that I made that promise to is long gone. I fell in love because he was adventurous and polite and so smart. Now he only wants to watch tv(family guy-eww!) and eat and...

    It's a constant battle.

    I want that affection, just don't trust 'em. Not ready, but want those feelings of closeness so badly sometimes.

    Every relationship I've ever been in I've

    always found myself giving it a full 100% just for them to only give 25% in return. All I want is for somebody to love me and understand me and accept me for me. Because that's exactly what i do for others. I give them my all. I love them with everything i've got, I understand...

    A Muse Of Sorts

    It seems very odd to me how I am. I can write poetry and express myself in the most profound way, yet the words don't seem to come out when I speak. I can be a great listener and enjoy being there for the special friends in my life. I have friends and they are mostly women, which...

    I want to be in a relationship with a Christian

    I want to be someone's "everything".

    I want to be worth fighting for. I have always been labeled the good guy. "You're such a great father", "You're so different from any man I've met", "You deserve so much better than me"... It's difficult to hear these exact quotes from people that use you and walk out of your...

    He loves me so much. But I just don't love him.

    Maybe I'm too shallow. He's my height (5'6) and his English isn't all that great. But he lives in Germany. I live in New York. I don't want to break his heart because he's a very sweet guy but I feel no attraction.

    Love...its probably the most powerful drug in

    the World. You try a little bit and get a taste for it. You try it again, and it makes you feel good....one more time, then another, then another....and you're hooked. It consumes your being- mind, body and soul...you crave it, need it, can't live without it.....and then someone...

    i fall in love with moments instead of people.

    i thought i loved a boy who loved me as if I was the morning sun. He’d laugh at me when I’d tremble, but that was not love, it was obsession. i thought i loved a man that never smiled, only when it rained, but it turned out rather dry. it was just a folly. i fell in love...
