I Will Not Fall In Love So Easily Again

    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.

    I Am Scared.

    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...

    “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...

    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 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 Keep Hoping...

     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.....

    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...

    Never Again

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
