    Learned from experience.

    I've become greedy other this experience. My heart comes first, second my mind, third is thought of being with someone. My first question to myself is, is he worth the pain in your heart again? You think he cares what he puts you thru while feeding lies to believe he's so great...

    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?

    Don't ask someone to stay with you twice.

    If they want to leave, they going to leave no matter how hard trying to convince them to stay. They don't need you and you must not need them either.

    You changed my whole mindset.

    You made me happy. You made me realize what it's like for someone to hold you back from other guys not bc you know you should but bc you made me not care about them bc I cared about you. I realized that the feelings I had for my ex weren't real and I thought I had it all w you...

    Stupid SOB and I fell

    I wasted my time on a guy

    who didn't give a **** about me. He was an abusive, cheating ******* and I let him break my heart. A couple weeks after we broke up, his best friend slept with his new girlfriend. Thank you karma <3

    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...

    and now that i got rid of you,

    it feels nice. i finally feel somewhat peaceful and content and not like i'm walking on eggshells everywhere with you. i should have walked away sooner, and i wish i knew back then that it's okay to leave sometimes, and to think of myself more often.

    Little did he know, him ignoring me taught me

    how to live without him. At the time, I was confused and distraught. I wanted to know why. I began to blame myself by dissecting my personality and finding new flaws. Maybe I wasn't pretty enough. Maybe I was boring. Maybe...SIGH!! Whatever. Now, looking back I thank him...

    I don't look at it as a complete waste of time,

    though my free time is highly valuable and I'd of rathered it was a continued investment instead of misused and squandered. It did teach me a valuable lesson and opened me up to new things and ideas, for that I am grateful.

    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.

    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.
