    Real Life Night-tale

    I haven't been really in a real relationship before, but sometimes I want to be in one. Its just that I am kind of afraid that I might be hurt and never be the same again. I still believe in fairytales, still believe that my knight in the shining armor will soon come, and still...

    Second Time Around

    How I wish I could do this.  It would be amazing to fall in love and give it my all like I did before to someone that actually deserves it and cherishes it.

    Hurt So Much

    I have been hurt so much in my life. I wish I could leave all my past hurts and "baggage" and love like I've never been hurt. But I really do not know if that is possible. From all the pain and hurt has come trust issues, self doubt, guilt, low self esteem, depression, etc...

    What Is Love Like You've Never Been Hurt?

    A fairytale!!!!!!  There's no such thing.  Love isn't only of dreams we've been brainwashed to believe.

    Is That So Bad?

    I want to love like I've never loved before. I want to be with someone as if I'd never been with anyone. Why is that bad? Why am I judged so harshly for "falling" quickly? How do you know it's not real? Just because I don't follow your timetable, how can you assume that...

    I Do... But I Don't.

    While I do fantasize about having that feeling again, I would never trade the experiences I have had (some good, some ******) that have made me the person I am today. Though, there are days I wish I could go back to that feeling.

    But I Can't

    How can I love like that when I know what it's like to be hurt so badly that I just wanted to curl up in a ball and die? How can I set myself up to be hurt like that again? If I knew there was no risk, I would. But the reminder of the pain I endured makes me cautious and...

    Nice

    How wonderful it would be to forget that pain of loves past.  I think I try to do that but time and time again the women in my life point out that they are not the same as the women from my past so I don't have to react in the ways I do at times, It sucks...

    I Want To, But I Can't

    The love I have for this man is unconditional. It is overpowering at times. There is nothing I wouldn't do for him to ensure that he is happy. But... I have been hurt. Badly, and he knows that. Sometimes I can feel it creep up on me, and I just... withdraw. I want to love like I...

    I Know You May Disagree ...

    Many people will say, 'We can never truly love or be love unless we have at one time lost.' But what if we could? If this is MY experience, even if I placed this as a goal, I could shape it, nurture it, and build it into something that could resemble this...

    To wake up and look at him with a smile on my

    face as he kisses my lips ever so gently. Making love while the sun barely peaks through the blinds. Cooking him breakfast while he reads the newspaper and sips his coffee. Spending the day together strolling through the park. We can't keep our eyes off each other, nor our hands...

    Love And Never Hurt

    Love is what I'm trying to give away even if people hurt me or has hurt me.  I don't know if people notices it or not or get the message.

    Like I'd Never Been

    I love to know the feeling like I'd never memorized it. To start fresh like it was never ended and I never felt defeated. Let it grow from a seed to a tree of a mighty foliage like it was never destroyed and chopped into pieces. Be mine like no one had ever owned my heart before...

    I Think It's An Attitude You Develop When You Get Older...

    ... not just with age but with every chance you take at finding love you become more resilient against pain. It's inevitable to find love without pain. A lot of us fear it. After each upsetting break up, you can reinvent yourself and change up the kind of people you fall in...
