    I Can't Move On And It Hurts

    I can't move on. He's on my mind 24/7. I need to move on though because he said some hurtful things to me. He wasn't sensitive to my feelings and he would blame me for things that he himself was doing. We had a big issue with opposite sex friends. He didn't want me having males...

    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...

    Can't Let Go

    My head tells me that it's over and that there's no happy Hollywood ending for us. But my heart keeps desperately hoping that she'll change her mind. I constantly have the maddening urge to call or e-mail her to try and "fix" things but I know this will not accomplish...

    A Rationale Of Pain...

    In my mad crazy, alone thinking time. I was trying to rationalise the way I feel about all the pain I am forcing myself to go through over my ex... Here is my metaphorical rationale... I am in a room, there is some candle light, but mainly dark and shadow. Around me there...

    All I Talk About

    I am over it. I swear.It just keeps coming back to 'haunt' me - he keeps making contact and creating unnecessary drama. It seems he can't make up his mind, he wants nothing to do with me, but when he sees me on in public he has to say something to me, THROUGH TEXT.No matter how...

    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...

    Killing Me. :(

    Does time really heals? It hurts so much. It's been five months since we broke up. I had a six months relationship with this guy whom I thought who loved me but I was wrong. I was so happy with him within those months. He showed me to be loved and how it is to be in love. But...

    Finding Out That I Still Have Feelings For Her

    Her name was jenna, she was the ideal woman for me; Redhair, cute face, curvy figure, smart, funny,and had a bit of a naughty side to her. We dated for four months. One of the problems though was how hard it was to date her. She had a child and spend most of her weekends at home...

    I Catch Myself Wishing

    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...

    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...

    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...
