I Wasted My Time On Someone

    No one should be able to make someone feel

    inferior, take away ones smile or make ones heart cold...I'm a lOver by nature and a true believer of love though I do not let anyone take away my inner power so I don't keep bad vibes of heart breakers but I still pray for them because my heart is big and does not understand...

    Men give so many mixed messages you have to

    judge their intentions by their actions. The bottom line is that if he likes you, you won't be left questioning if he likes you. Period. If he wants you, he will damned well move heaven and earth and be with you. End of story. If not, do yourself a favour and move on. Now.

    Live and learn. Life keeps on going forward

    never backwards. So don't reminisce on those past memories because you deserve better.

    That's the ****** about being the other woman,

    you don't get to have hurt feelings. The knowledge you aren't his only one...not even his only "other" one-is not supposed to bother you. You're a hypocrite if it does. Maybe I'm just acting paranoid, but I have a sneaky feeling that message wasn't for me. The choices: be...

    R.I.P To The Feelings That I Had For You.

    Finally. It was gone. Completely gone. But it wasn't that easy. Killing that feeling is not a piece of cake. But now its not there anymore. It seems like the waves of time finally washed it away from the shores of my heart. It was amazing. Felt like a heavy load was finally...

    7 Seven months wasted.

    What do I get in the end? I get accused of cheating, she tries turning my friends against me, tells everyone (even random people) that I used her and I'm made out to be a bad person. Keep in mind she was straight into another relationship three weeks after she broke up with me...

    To begin with I want to say

    that I feel I wasted my time only because of the last 5/6 months. For the record I have social anxieties and I worry I'm going to come across as stupid so I don't say a lot. I'm also a bit grumpy sometimes and can freeze people out until I'm ready to talk. I get both of these...

    I was with my ex for 1 1/2 years.

    While dating him I learned that he has 4 children with 4 different women. After learning this, I was extremely bothered but he assured me that he wasn't with any of the children's mothers and he just wanted to be a good father to his children. So I gave him a chance. After a...

    18 Year Old Virgin Meets 31 Year Old Don Juan. Result: Disaster!

    So I met Everett when I was 18, virginal, and hopelessly naive. He was 31, devilishly handsome, smart, charming, yada yada yada. He had a girlfriend, but I was in love with him, so as much as I'm not proud of it now, I was "the other woman" for several years because he kept...

    As all stories seem to begin,

    there was a girl. A sunglasses indoors, aspiring writer kind of girl who ****** everything up. I spent so many angsty words on her, no. Not her but whoever the hell I imagined her to be. In reality she's no different from the rest of us really - a special kind of loser.

    I completely wasted my time on someone.

    I wish I had never met them. They almost cost me my marriage to the best man I know. I will never endanger that again.

    All my life I thought I wanted to play it safe

    at love and relationships. I thought (very stupid) that if I picked the guy that loved me more and was not to good looking, I'd be safe and would not have to worry about heartbreak cause they'd love me forever. Well I was wrong first of all you can never know how much someone...

    I stopped talking to my "best friend"

    because everytime i tell her i like a guy, she goes after him even if she thought he was ugly at first & then she talks smack about me so he won't like me. Did i do wrong by ending our friendship? I don't believe so.

    because it makes me sad to think a person is a waste. But I spent almost two and a half years on this guy who I recently found out cheated on me multiple times with his ex and like any foolish girl I forgave him every time... I don't know if I was in lust or love with him but...

    Indecisive people are easy to come by

    and hard to get over. Does he want me? Is he annoyed by me? I wasted my time hoping a guy would come around. He gave me signs of interest but told me it wasn't the right time... And then kept acting interested. I'm still trying to get over him. Damn, I liked him a lot.

    I don't think anything is necessarily a waste

    of time. I think we learn something from everything we've done and been through. I spent a lot of years with a guy that was toxic for me, but even so, I don't consider it wasted time. I just reflect on what I went through, and learn from it in order to better myself.

    I wouldn't say I wasted my time per se,

    but I pursued a relationship that was never going to work. I was young, though.. and it wasn't like I was using valuable dating time. After high school is when it becomes more serious....well, for some.
