I Wish I Was In a Great Relationship

    If you ask your partner not to do something

    and they do anyway. Does this imply that your word doesn't matter to them or that they just don't care. Or is it more? Because I feel underminded and unappreciated. I feel like everything I say doesn't count. It goes in one ear and out the other. Double standards for sure...

    I have had past boyfriends

    and girlfriends, but they all end in heartbreak. I wish I could have a rewind some of those relationships. Some of them were the best things I've ever experienced in life. I feel like I screw them all up.

    While on ask.fm, I stumbled across an

    interesting post. It was by a girl---a girl I didn't really know, and, frankly, didn't really care about---but what she said really got me. The question was "What kind of relationship do you want?" And her response was chillingly cliche. She went through the motions. She wants...

    What Little I've Learned About Relationships

    OK, I'm neither single nor looking for a relationship. But I promised someone on this site I would write something with her in mind. I've been maried for a fair whikle and my undeserved reputation of the past has long been put to rest. But here are some random and casual...

    My relationship feels like it's falling apart.

    No sex, no real quality time, no mental stimulation, he doesn't make an effort to keep me happy. The only thing that is stable is the financial aspect.

    Love Does Not Care Whether You’re Beautiful, Thin, Smart Or Even If You’re A Good Person…

    One of my exes sent me a link to his blog, which I have been receiving on regular basis, as he’s been overseas for two years now. I don’t generally read it, or if I do, I only skim through it for the pictures. We have stayed friends, more or less. I had kept a distance until...

    Maybe someday. I'm not

    even sure what kind of guy I'd want to be with. I'm ridiculously silly and a huge dork, so I think I'd need a guy who would be equally playful. I guess being able to make me laugh would be a big thing of it. Really my only desires for a relationship would be for us to make each...

    Always the negative things.

    Always complaining about things I do, or how I do things, or how I DONT do things etc. If you hate me so much STOP LEADING ME ON AND DUMP ME ALREADY. You have nothing positive to say about me ever. If I'm that bad of a person just leave. I really don't understand.
