I Will Not Fall In Love So Easily Again

    “Distrust and Caution Are the Parents of Security.”

    Ben Franklin said that and I am inclined to agree. I know that's a radical contrast from my previous stances of both not giving a damn and almost wishing the worst would happen to me. But when the house of cards came crashing down, with it came my faith. Faith came to a grinding...

    In the Beginning....

    When I was younger, I can say that I would fall in love at the drop of a hat.  Over time, I learned that it was only lust that start a relationship off and after some time it becomes love.  I learned that it takes work to find someone to love and when you find that...

    Apollo

    There is a person a ghost to me in this world who I refer to as Apollo, and its because I have never loved anyone like I loved him, it was reckless, it was unconditional, it was full hearted unprotected, eyes closed arms opened love. And he decided that it wasn't for him, I...

    No...never Again!!!!!!

    My affair was sooooo devastating!!  It felt like more than love..I felt it in every fibre of my being. I was consumed by him...all in less than a month. And I just kept falling deeper and deeper every single day. Soon, there was nothing in my life but him.  In the...

    Please Come Back Please come back to me.

    I have missed you so much. Wherever you are just know that you are on my mind and in my heart, but most of all I love you. I have waited for a woman just like you all of my life and I need you in my life. I want to see you smile again and hear your soft angelic voice, but most...

    Falling In Love Shouldn't Be Hard... But

    It hurts when it's one sided. Twice now, I have wanted to be someone's everything. Stupidly I was just an "intense something" to them, a moment, a martyr, a saviour. No more pain for the cause. If my beloved, does not say they are in love with me...I won't utter it...

    I am young.  And only with age does experience and knowledge come.  This I understand.  I did not want to get married...I did not want to have his baby...I just wanted to be with him then and there.  But when I got pregnant he asked me to marry him.  I...

    Words Bleh

    I'm trying to make a commitment to myself to never fall for simply words alone again. I don't want to put my heart on the line and hang it by a thread of promises. I feel it's best that we don't invest our hearts and time into words alone, because words/promises are...

    More Cautious...

    I have always fallen in love too easily in the past - I have given my heart away with no thought as to whether the other person was worthy - whether they would take care of my heart and protect it. And I have always been too rash in my decision. From now on I will treat my heart...

     It seems I stay away from woman for so long that as soon as I kiss the lips of some lady who gives half a **** about herself and me I'm in love again. I think maybe I'm some mental defective sometimes but then maybe an incurable romantic who just keeps hoping.....

    I don't want to Fall in Love anymore...

    I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve. I always give it away as soon as a woman show any sign of interest in me. Whether it's just friendship or not. I fall for a woman almost as soon as I talk to them and feel like I understand. I start day dreaming about what it would be like to...

    I can count on one hand the many times I have fallen in love only to have it end before I could enjoy it to it's fullest.  The one person that I am involved with right now will be the last one that I will love without looking long and hard at a relationship.  I look at...

    A Letter To My Future Bride And Wife To Be:

    I’ve been reading my bible, praying, and finding time to just sit in silence with God waiting patiently for your arrival. I don’t know who you are, what you look like or what you sound like. I do know you’re out there; I know you’re living life just as I am living mine...

    I am scared to give someone else my heart.  I am afraid, because I feel love and compassion for this person.  I will never never fall in love again.  I will try hard not to fall in love and try to keep my heart to myself.  I wish no longer to share my heart with anyone...

    I Don't Think So

    I fell way too easily for someone once.  I got hurt worse than I could have ever imagined.  It was something I couldn't really avoid at the time... it was just overwhelming.  But the next time I will be much more cautious.

    I fell in love once and it's been pretty bad.

    The worst feeling in the entire world is hating someone that I once loved so much. That is worse than having everything fall apart.
