    The memories are like a mental prison.

    But I know that I made the right decision in leaving you, rather than continue in this emotional tailspin. I have to protect my feelings because I was in love with an ideal, an image, a fantasy of the person who I wanted you to be, rather than seeing you for who you are. Reality...

    Lol I wouldn't say I wasted those 4 yrs with

    him. but I do feel a little ridiculous crying like it's the end of the world when we broke up. it's almost a year since we broke up and a couple of months since we talked. today is his birthday and so is my moms, my bros and my nieces birthday too so it's hard not to forget it...

    He knew I wasn't allowed to date.

    .. But he wanted to be with me anyways. I had liked him a lot too... So I decided to take the risk and dare him. We started dating, and things were well for a while. It was kept a secret from my parents. From the very beginning, I feared putting all my trust in someone. I feared...

    You really messed me up,

    you know. I gave you everything I had and you just threw me away like a piece of trash. I really believed you loved me, but I'm pretty sure I was wrong. What makes it worse is the fact that you never told me why you left. I was just left on my own wondering what it was that I...

    My recent break up has almost nearly crushed me.

    I'm still trying to pick up the pieces but am struggling more than I ever have before. I had planned forever with him and now he'll never be apart of my life again.

    Ain't that the truth.

    Happening to me again right now. My first love was also my best friend. I met him first semester of college, fell in love, made the mistake of telling him my feelings. He lied and said he had feelings for me too, but it was obvious he didnt. I had the stupid hope that in time...

    Sucks because your instincts are warning you

    and you don't listen because you love that person so much you want to be wrong. What happens your instincts were right all along and you wasted years you won't get back. Listen to you're instincts people often they're the only friends you have.

    The signs were all there from the beginning,

    I knew we were a mismatch even back then; 16 years ago. I knew it so deep down in my heart, that I tried to break it off several times, but the heart wants what it wants and talks your brain into things you know are not wise decisions. Hope gives you courage and confidence that...

    I gave you 6 precious yrs of my life.

    I loved you but you took advantage of me. I trusted you with my life... My daughter's life but you did not give any importance. You continously spend my money for yourself and on your friends... You consistently lied to me from the time we met till the time I broke up with you...

    I met a girl on Tinder 3 weeks ago

    and we had a date shortly before Christmas. It went pretty well, we clicked, we talked about all sorts of things, we went out to eat at a restaurant. Of course, me being the guy, I paid for the both of us. We talked a lot about relationships, she asked me what kind of...

    I may have lost "years" with this person; six

    years to be exact, but the man I've become today is well worth all those "wasted" years. If I didn't go through that experience I would not have found out who I really am and would not have found what I truly want and need in a woman. So I wouldn't call it "waste"....I like to...

    So much energy and love wasted on someone

    who never really cared. Never settle for second best, because you'll be left behind.

    I had my head down. I worked

    so hard. I built a career. I supported someone else. Then I looked up and realized that I did not love him. Our life was not meant to be and I asked for a divorce. I was still young enough to meet someone else and have children. He decided to refuse my request for a...

    I think this can apply to any relationship with

    someone, where I emotionally invested in but it doesn't feel like the person didn't really give anything back. Would this be a selfish way of looking at things?

    for a long time. About 5 years... I didnt think I wasted my time on her. Yet now I think I did. When we broke up she just had nasty things to say about me. It really broke me. Im better now. Although I don't want to admit it seeing as she denies ever loving me, I did once upon...

    Not once not twice but multiple times.

    Given my slight OCD personality and the addictive nature of love it is unavoidable. The high of infatuation is similar to using cocaine I believe. Not that I have ever used cocaine or ever will but I guess I am somehow addicted to the feeling of love - so is this making me...
