    He just won't stop trying to contact me.

    But then again, I get kind if happy when he does, even though it always ends badly. He texted me last night and we fought all night until he just said "goodnight" and who knows when we'll speak next. This is so difficult, I wish we could both just move on and be happy.

    Why Did I Have To Relive The Pain?

    I started dating my first and only real girlfriend my sophomore year of high school. We had an interesting relationship to say the least, full of highs, lows, and everything in between. She was my first for everything besides a kiss. We could laugh and joke around for hours on...

    I was in a relationship three years ago.

    It was my first relationship, and as you know about firsts, it was so important to me. He ended up breaking my heart by hooking up with someone at a party. In other words, he cheated. He told me he cheated after we broke up (which means he also lied while we were together). Now...

    Why.

    I was doing so well... and then he goes and texts me, saying he misses me, he's sorry for hurting me and hopes to be on "good terms" in the future. I don't know what to do anymore. I don't know what to say back. I know it's impractical to avoid another classmate for 3 years, but...

    The Stages of a Breakup

    You hate them, you love them, you want to not be in love with them anymore.  Your heart and your mind are at complete opposites to each other.  Logically you know he was not the one for you, and that it is better that he broke up with you so he did not continue to waste...

    Anyone Else Feel This Way?

    I broke up my my ex about 6 months ago now. We were together for 3 years, though our relationship was not very healthy. He was a liar and a cheater. I probably was a little overbearing, who knows? We were very on again off again; and last year when I decided to end things for...

    It Is Not Better To Have Loved And Lost

    I met a man this year and even though it was a relatively short while, it was enough time for me to really fall for him. I am a very sensitive person and aside from that, it is very rare that I meet someone I am actually interested in. I am not one of those people who date just...

    that he will change his mind again to be with me. Love does not overcome everything. Or maybe he did not love me enough. What's really hard is we still text and see each other. I try not to text him. It is easier for me to move on if I can stop all communication with him. He was...
