    I wasted 2 years of my teenage years with a guy

    I thought I liked. I realized that I started getting tierd of his attitude and the way he treated me. I realized that I liked him only because he was the only person that would talk to me. I was afraid of leaving him because I was afraid he was going to hurt me. So I had to wait...

    After almost a year with no contact,

    my ex is sort of back in my life. We broke up on August 1st of last year. He called me on July 24th. At first he said he missed our friendship. But, then on Friday night, he began texting me. He started telling me how he missed our intimate times together. Then, later in...

    Perhaps the worst part was how she made it look

    so easy... As if I wasn't that important to her.

    I met a guy on this site

    and he claimed he was head over heels in love (which I really didn't believe because I'm not that gullible. Lol). He was actually upset because I wasn't buying it. He said he was a widower, had his own business, and he was overseas finishing up some work. All this time I...

    When I was 21, I met a girl I just absolutely

    feel hard for; I played it cool, but I knew she was exactly my type when first I met her. She was beautiful like I cannot even describe... Not like physically beautiful like a model, but just like... Perfect, you know? Well, I managed to date her a while, and we made love a few...

    Just when I feel like I want to post something

    passive-aggressive and mean in the HOPE that the person it's meant for will see it; I stop myself and try to say something encouraging instead. It's not insincere, it's a good practice for my own mental health. There are several reasons for this: 1.) A mean, passive-aggressive...

    My ex-wife. It took a long time to realize she

    was really selfish and self-centered. She's still that way, and worse.

    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...

    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.

    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?

    So much energy and love wasted on someone

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

    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.
