My best friend and i started dating when we were Freshmen. He had liked me for a long time before that and i finally gave him a chance. We ended up dating for over a year and i fell in love with him. Just after our year anniversary, he dumped me, hard. We ended up breaking up via text message and a whole bunch of crap went down. I cried every night for probably a week. But even though it hurt, even though it ruined our friendship for 2 years, even though i felt all alone in the world, it made me stronger. It made me grow up, and start to see the world through different eyes and i've changed so much since then.

(to end the story, we're dating again. He just asked me out today actually :) I'm just glad to have my best friend back.)

I'm not sure if I should tell you... But the first guy I ever liked more than a friend (and more than just a two-day crush) told me one of his old friends had called and asked him out the week I told him I liked him. He said he had to choose. He took nearly all school year before telling me he chose her. I went home that day and cried for a few hours just listening to music, until I heard someone say my name. Just my name. (the weird thing was there was no one but me around). A few seconds later I heard a few songs play that helped me to promise myself I wouln't cry over him anymore. I told myself I didn't need him this much, and I could live without him. He was apparently dating her almost that entire time. But he also decided to kiss me. Then he came back right before school started last year and asked if it was too late to choose me. I took about a month to answer him, and next month we will have dated for a year. So it turned out okay for me, but at one point he promised to "fix it". That afternoon I sewed up the gash he left myself (not literally) and resigned to just being friends with him.

I once fall in love with a guy,who i thought he was my everything,but i ended up losing him because of how he acted towards me,i thought that i never fall in love again,yet i realize that i can never let those things get in my way and i should take it as a lesson in my life,it made me a strong woman,realize that i should stand on my own feet even I'm badly hurt.

I love a guy who I got to keep for three years, before he randomly called it off - a few months later we started talking again, and I thought it was working out. Now I think he's found someone else and just doesn't have the heart to tell me.

Love... Very complicated for me. I'm cursed, or maybe its a gift to keep me safe, I'm not sure which. I'm not allowed to be with pretty much anyone except a few people. You see every time I try to meet a guy or sometimes girls, something happends to keep us apart. I have a boyfriend though, and i truely, truely love him with all my heart. I spent a whole day with him and he was the first to stay with me that long. I have never met someone who's much like me. So.... Different. After that day i never saw him again. Its hard to remember his face, and i think its been two years since I've seen him. But anyways about half a year after i had seen him, my closest and most greatest friend tracked him down and told him that i liked him alot. i talked to him through my friend a lot and we started looking for him every where. We went to movies every weekend and thought of ways to get to him at night, but no matter how hard we tried and try i just cant see him. i am still his girlfriend and i havent seen him in two years.I don't betray him with other guys and i never will. It may not sound like it, but there is something between us and your art work. Its that, yes it is true you grow when your are separated with your loved one, because I know I have the best relationship skills in the world probably, and because being away from him has made me independent and a lot less needy than I used to be, but you dont have to break up to get stronger. Maybe there was no point in telling you this but i figured i would let out this little secret instead of holding it in:)
RosaEnora Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2011  Student Writer
We are no longer together.:( I haven't heard from him in 6 months. He has probably moved on with out me, at least I hope so for his sake, because i must move on soon without him. I hope that one day i can see him, but im afraid a cursed fallen angel is meant to be alone...:sadangel:
dark-joys47 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2010
huh, now that i think about how i was before i met my ex, i felt like i was just closed off from the world. but after we broke up (without a fight, surprisingly), i smiled more and was nicer than i was back then. back then, i would almost never smile and didn't have a single friend. i feel like i should thank him for breaking down my barriers and freeing the person i imprisoned. the one i imprisoned was the REAL me!
plus we didn't have the "break-up" fight because we both didn't feel the "spark" but still had some good times :)

I hope I´ll manage to feel that way one day...
Having your heart broken by the person you love the most, and who claims you´re the best thing that´s ever happened to him, is not easy. Still after 3 months it hurts... and yeah, maybe it has strengthened my walls, but it also just made it worse for people to look in, and harder for me to look out.

I had a wonderful girl in my life once but she left me over a stupid arguement. And since then, and even now I'm with someone else. She is always on my mind @_@ And I wish I could forget, but I can't and never will because I'm sure she was the one. <3

Well, my love life is currently out of wack. Again. My boyfriends in 8th grade, and i'm in 9th, were about halfway to our 5th month, and unfortunately, the distance is hard on him. Currently he's (according to a friend and one of his) possibly cheating on me. He doesn't talk to me, and i honestly feel like we're failing and i'm breaking. Then, there's this other guy in my grade who likes me. Wonderful.

But other than that, this piece is pretty incredible.

Wow my love life......
Well I suppose I've only truly been in love twice and that was with high school sweet hearts.

First day of school I got the biggest crush on this uberly cute guy and then we became really good friends. The only thing that stood in the way of me and him was his current girlfriend. So I waited and in only 2 months she left him and he asked me out a week later. We lasted a month and I thought it was the best month ever! Then he left me for another girl who just so happened to be one of my friends. Whats funny is that when she left him he came running back to me then left me because his skate bored was more important.

Then my second love I met more around the middle of freshmen year. He was new at school and he was going out with my friend. So I got to know him and the next thing I know hes calling me in 7th period and telling me he broke up with his girlfriend and wanted to go out with me. Well I said yes but only 3 days later he broke up with me for one of my friends. Well whilst he was going out with her he was coming over to my house everyday and we got to know each other real well and got real close. So then he left his girlfriend again and went out with me. 2 weeks later his mom told him they were moving and he broke up with me only to be told the next day that they weren't moving after all. He wont get back with me now because hes hurt me twice.

But that's ok because a little pain can help make a stronger heart

Wow, I'm way late on the comment. Just found the image. Sorry its uber late ><
My love life?
Well, the beginning starts out slow, the middle hits climax. The end has yet to come.
I've never really had much luck with love. I guess I'm too picky. If I weren't though, I'd end up settling for someone I didn't like. I've had several relationships that only lasted a week at most.
Then I met my ex girlfriend (I'm a girl BTW, I like both men and women). Things were good at first one could say. I was doting and did what she asked. I'm usually the more submissive one in the relationship and she kind of took that for granted. She didn't listen at all either. When she would come over she'd go straight to my bookshelf and shove her nose into a trashy romance novel (I've since thrown all of them out). I would talk for several minutes and look at her for a response; always getting the same one "Huh?" and I would respond, "Nothing, I'm talking to myself." That relationship lasted longer than someone would think. About six months.
When I switched schools I met a guy I fell for pretty hard. He and I got along very well and could talk about anything. An "friend" of mine was trying to hook us up for about a year and a half. For his birthday I doodled him a picture and wrote a letter to him on the back telling him how I felt. The next day he came up to me and thanked me profusely and gave me a big hug. Then not a week later I get to a class I share with him and my friend and she is sitting all over his lap. The week following she completely ignored me and on Friday he pulled me aside and told me they were going out, telling me that she had told him she let me know.
I still haven't gotten over him, as it was pretty recently. I don't like him as much as I used to. At the moment I am with the most wonderful person I've ever met. I met her, disliking her from the friend that took the guy I liked. I got to know her and realized I was being petty. We became fast friends and then she told me she had a crush on me. On a trip to the mall I remember saying, "Are we going out or what. All you've said is you like me." She grabbed my hand lacing our fingers together and asked me to be her girlfriend. I asked her to marry me a few months ago =). We just hit a rough patch a few days ago but I feel things are looking up. We're talking like we always do so I'm sure everything will be okay.
Because of my fiancee I've become a stronger person. She takes care of me and makes me want to take care of myself. I've become a better person being with her. A person I like and I didn't before. She makes me happy like nothing I've known before and I can't see things going wrong without her. We don't see each other a lot, but we talk often online and in texts. It just makes it better when we do see each other. Her love has made me stronger, but other's have not.
Hope this isn't too long ><

yes, indeed, I can relate, even though I can't say I have a proper 'love life'. 3 months ago my boyfriend left me, so he could have more freedom. after 2 years of pure happiness. he was and still is my world. altough it's really really hard without him, I have friends. 'what doesn't kill me makes me stronger.' so, yes, I guess I am a stronger person.

My love life has been intense to say the least. I am only 16 but I have experienced love and loss. When I was 12 I met this boy who was the "love of my life" I guess you could say. We were completely infatuated with eachother. It wasn't sexual it was just that every minute we spend together was the best minute of our lives and we just grew closer.. then when we were 15 he had to move abruptly... He found out on a Tuesday that he had to leave onThursday. I was a mess but he promised he'd come back soon. He never made it... because he died a few months ago. So now... I'm just trying to pick up the peices. It sounds like a bad romance novel..but it's my life.

this is the story of my life.. i thought i had met the girl who i wanted to spend the rest of my life with. spent thousands of dollars on her, and we even had our childrens names picked out. but then she changed into a hateful bitch like her mother and i became taboo. i tried commiting suicide over her..twice... i didnt get out of bed for 3 days... i would do nothing, i thought that i had lost everything.. then i beat up one of my friends for hanging out with her and i went to jail for 3 weeks...none of it was worth it. i just now met another girl after 4 months, and i still think about her.. im rebuilding my foundations now, but i have lost a part of me and the emptiness will never feel the same... this piece means a lot to me... thanks.. ive always been told by the therapists that talking about it was the best thing to do..

My ex-girlfriend/Best friend just abandoned me. I told her I still wanted to be friends. I'm the one who broke up with her...but 3 months later, she decided to completely ditch me. I feel helpless, she was the one I turned to, she was my best friend. And now, I have no one to go to. She was always there. But now she decides to leave me alone. I'm helpless, I'm falling apart. I need my best friend back. Not a girlfriend. But a friend.

I guess I'll get over this sometime. Last time it happened I was in love with my old best friend and when I confessed she up and left me alone the moment after I poured my heart out to her. She left me for this guy who didn't give a crap about her. If you haven't guessed/realized it by now, I'm gay. So it's a bit harder when I confess love to people, and I don't know how they'll react. It took me a long time to get over her. Then again, she was my first love.
But I eventually recovered, and I kinda talk to her a bit now. No feelings whatsoever anymore.
It's just quite upsetting that I'd be abandonded again, after being promised that I would be. After I had to be put back together from a complete mess. Mehh. Too much shit.
But thank you for this. It's really how I feel at the moment. Thanks for listening. Even if you just skim it. I had to vent. ><

NATALKKA Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2008
dude- i LOVE this piece!! and yes, like many others, i can totally relate to what this piece is saying! I somewhat recently broke up w/my boyfriend [whom i was with for a year and 1/2]. we had the PERFECT relationship, we were totally in love & we NEVER fought or argued...EVER! not once during that entire year and 1/2! After about a year we had started talking about eventually having a future together. a couple months later [last summer] i got into an art school, which was/is a HUGE opportunity for me. But unfortunately it was/is ALOT of work, which meant that he and i wouldn't get to see each other as often. [4-5 days a week instead of EVERY DAY haha.] well he was always very very needy & this made it difficult for him to be supportive of me going to this amazing school. So he started giving me alot of grief about stuff & then he RANDOMLY started lying about things that he didn't need to lie about cause he knew that he could talk to me about anything! [i'm the most understanding person ever & i'm extremely easy to talk to] So a bunch of other crap happened & i had to break up with him. it was the HARDEST thing i've ever had to do- breaking up with someone i was still in love with. He took it harder than i did but after a couple weeks he turned into a jerk. He'd go out of his way to tell me how much happier he is without me & how his friends [who had also become my close friends] were glad that we broke up & that they didn't like me anymore. & he'd call me and say the most HORRIBLE things. That went on for about 2-3 weeks & during that time i was a TOTAL MESS! i was depressed, i'd cry myself to sleep etc etc.. I mean come on, i think anyone would feel the same way if the person that they had spend every moment with for the past year and 1/2, the person they loved and who loved them was being such a dickweed. so after 2-3 weeks of all of that he called me SOBBING, telling me how much he had missed me & that he had just been in denial & how much he loves me, he can't live without me & he was begging me to get back together with him blah blah blah.
I WAS PISSED!! He was saying this stuff to me & making me feel like crap for nothing!!? and now he wants me to get back together with him!? HECK NO!
So then after a little bit he ended up changing COMPLETELY! He has this new GF now and she's SO DISGUSTING! I'm not jealous in anyway, and i really dont care that he has a gf [however, their relationship is extremely shallow]. I'm actually stoked for him that he's happy again [even if he is completely contaminated now]. But the thing that KILLED me was that the amazing guy that i loved is completely gone. He's totally abandoned any morals/values that he had before & he's just a regular ol' scummy guy now :(
I dont regret anything- & i'll never forget how wonderful that year and 1/2 was, But a small part of me will always miss the person that he used to be.

I've COMPLETELY moved on & i'm not sad about it anymore... But at one point i did think i would never recover.

Now, I look back on it all and just laugh...

Your work is beautiful and true...although I'm still working on my own wounds...

I met my ex-boyfriend when I was 10 years old...I had always called him my big brother...he was 13 when I was 10...we met online and had been friends for a little while...when I turned 11 or so I found myself with a huge crush on him....8 years later....we started talking on the phone alot....he was with a girlfriend at the time...but after 8 years....after a crush I had on him for 8 years....after waiting 8 years and saying no to every guy who had asked me out...he finally told me...he loved me....we started going out...but we were long-distant...I would fly out to see him...he was my first everything....first kiss....first get the picture....everything....he told me he would marry me....he bought me a promise ring.....but then after our 2 year anniversary...things started falling apart....I guess I was crying alot because I missed own immaturity because of being so far away from each other made him immature too.....then in May of this year....he stopped calling....stopped e-mailing....cut off contact from me entirely.....I tried calling him....tried texting his phone....I felt so weak this summer...I thought I would die...hell...I WANTED to die for awhile....I ignored everyone....I ignored myself....then finally I started to try picking up the heart was all over the floor....I have someone else in my life now and I'm getting stronger every fact...I started talking to my ex again about a month ago....he met a girl where he lives of course....part of his reason for not calling me anymore first my heart was still breaking....I told my new boyfriend that I didn't know how to deal with it...especially when at first when we were talking my ex was still telling me how great I was....but...what made me sad is that...he was'nt telling me how great of a person I was....but how great I was at other things....I was so confused....we decided to lay off of talking about the past and go back to just being friends like we were when we were 10...part of me is still afraid of disappointing my new boyfriend....afraid that I'll ruin things...but I'm starting to really was'nt me who ruined it all in the first place was it? Sure we both made mistakes but your art piece says it all....even once your heart has been broken... you can become stronger if you let yourself grow from it....

i think this is beautiful, and beautifully constructed. but the words themselves strike a chord.
it takes time, so much longer than you'd like to believe. it's hard to draw such a distinct line between loss leading to strength - if you felt a softness for them once, and they've become a part of how you grew and the person you became, it's hard to see that so objectively. for me? it's been so long, and in some ways i'm getting better, and in others weaknesses have all but gone away.
in any case, it's nice to see something so thoughtful. love your stuff. :love:

he was extremely possessive,jealous and so on... i can't wait to see if she suffers like i did for him (i know it's rude, i'm just curious)

I had a my best friend date the girl I was trying to get to like me that ticked me off and it took me along time to get over it, got mad at him a couple times over for it but looking back it was for the best. I'd never had a girlfriend and the girl ended up being a real flake, turns out she had quite the history of dating someone till she got bored then moved on to a newer things. After several other failed attempts to find someone I liked I've finally found someone that likes me back, but seeing as how I've never dated it's a bit of a learning experience. ^^'
