Girls are notorious for dramatically hating their exes. And every girl has a similar reason, all of them stemming from one main reason:
Boys suck.
They lie. They cheat. They pressure you. They ignore you. Confuse you. Do things that make you so angry your hands shake-but then they make it impossible to stay mad. They are the lowest, most vile, sorriest creations on the face of the earth.
So how on earth did I become one?
Ok, so that's an exaggeration. I'm still a girl, with a vagina and …

I believe in being happy and content, so there for I am Contappy...

This girl was so scared of marrying a responsible man that was serving his country in the Air Force. After she found out she was going to Japan with him she wasn't sure about her decision to marry him. After thinking she decided to marry him, but here's the real kick of the story. While she was planning the wedding she was also getting to close to this one guy just trying to be her support through the wedding. She decides to pro-sue him before and even after she marries …

"I'm so over it" became my mantra while I collected many fabulous reasons why I shouldn't love you. Why I don't even care. Why our love was never true. Then yesterday I'm walking to my new job in my new clothes, new hair, new punctuality, and I see you turn around. It wasn't you, because you're 3,289 miles away in Coral Gables, Florida probably thinking about how much I suck. This dude doesn't even look like you, so it must have been a trick of …

It took me twenty-two years to find a woman who I wanted to share my bed with. Maybe thats a lie. Maybe she was the first person to invite me in. Regardless, I spent two of the most substantial years of my life with my hand in hers. I also spent those two years believing that the anniversary cards would only stop when they rested six feet below the engraving. I was comfortable with that understanding, with the only constraints in growing old, being our …

My ex abused and tormented me for over a year. I wouldn't consider him my ex, maybe the term monster who controlled me for way to long, would suffice. When you hear the phrase "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger", you tend to think that simply because something didn't put you in your grave that you should learn from it. What if your situation is so dark that there's no way to find light in a lesson in your hard times? The unbelievable things done to me by this …

He was my poison. I knew it, but I found it easier to be in the relationship if neither of us spoke of the obvious. Not out loud, and definitely not to each other. It got to a point where we even had a fighting routine. On Monday He did something stupid. I got angry. We exchanged nasty remarks. He would not speak to me for 24hrs. He would buy me something nice. I accepted. He apologized. I melted. By Sunday we were good again. But sure enough, Monday would …

You were the love of my life. You were the reason I live and breathe. Without you, I was nothing. I made sure you knew that I was madly in love with you. Then, you traded me in for the army.

That moment came in my life when I was certain that we were meant to be. You didn't have to come over and visit me, but you did. You came over and hugged me. You held me. You caressed and kissed me. I felt wanted. I, for …

Imagine a party, music bumping, people dancing and having fun. A mysterious and sexy figure stands in the back.
I hit it off with him. We both loved all the same music, t.v. shows, etc. He and I ended up exchanging numbers at the end of the night and meeting up the next day. One thing led to another and we were dating a few weeks later. Absolutely amazing. Poster children for a perfect cute couple.
But we rarely saw each other. Then I moved about another hour away from …

An entire year of false accusations and arguing. Constant breaking up and getting back together. Screaming till i couldnt hear my words come out anymore.Being mad at me for things i couldn't control, or for doing something that you did to.Too many apologies, no lessons learned. constant disagreements and one too many scars added to my terribly cracked and wounded heart.Still wondering why your an EX and not current? They say that people with trust issues are usually the ones that cant be truseted, you were a perfect POINT PROVEN! …

A single phone call that changed my life and Hollywood couldn't have written it any better. I was listening to the voice of my Ex husband as he asked if I would be willing to meet him for dinner. He had been thinking of me and felt as though he needed to talk to me. In his dreams I was looking for him. Sixteen years of searching for someone or something to put back the pieces of my shattered heart after divorce lead me to realize we all must take …

There it is, that phrase, the phrase that many of us dispute, untill one day the very thing we dispute smacks us right between the eyes and then gushes into our hearts. Love at first sight. Well I was young. . I still am young but one thing is for sure. . When love hits you. . .you sure as hell know about it!!
So we met on a horrible dark rainy day in a coffee shop, I was just a giggling teenager completely unaware that my life was …

He was my world at one point. For whatever reason to be honest, looking back at it, I don't know what I ever saw in him. But that's how anyone feels about any of their exes right? The point is though, he got me pregnant when I was fifteen. Mind you, neither of us were ready to be parents, but as soon as we found out, he shut down. He pushed me away and started showing his true colors. My parents weren't supportive either, and I was pushed into terminating …

I had a Power Point Presentation to give the next day in my Desktop Publishing class when my wife Cathy told me to get out, and I never looked back.
A year later she wanted me to give her current love a good recomendation. I than reminded her that she kicked me out. I had nothing nice to say about that.
The last I have heard about her she was somewhere in Kansas.

I had waited 10 years to get married this second time. What I failed to do was take my damn time. I met the parents of this second wife at my church. Within 3 months of receiving an email from her I was getting married. Way too Fast! The first time I told my relatives in Syracuse, NY they all laughed. I had not even told them I had met someone hence their laughter! I sure wish I could laugh now, but I …

He was my best friend. It was weird. We barely saw each other, yet I told him more than people who I see every day and trust with my life. Then it happened. He did the unthinkable. Not even a week into our relationship, he committed a crime that tore us apart. It wasn't violent, no, but the emotional scars from it will never go away. I tried to understand. I tried to believe he did it because of the addiction. A year past and we didn't speak, and not …
You know the reason I broke things off between us. I wasn't ready for a relationship. I'm still not. You're out of the closet to everyone. I'm not. I can't. My family is homophobic. Just please know that I still love you. Please.

Live has 4 letters. die has 3.
i have two hands. i do not take 1 for granted.
-
i think i appreciate what i have. like a dancer in a ballroom in eternity.

imagine that. giving a dancer eternity to move in. - or on, or through.

eternity, like the devil in a fire.

i rule the devil has arms longer than mine. his nails carve deep. to enter the soul you cut through the veretebrae.

he wears this deceiving …

William L. Gensert
My ex-wife tried to kill me with my own gun. My last girlfriend tried to kill me with a hammer borrowed from my best friend to do work around the house. My current girlfriend just wishes I were dead, but she does that all on her own, nothing old, nothing new, nothing borrowed, nothing blue.
I consider this great progress. Not only are those I love increasingly more independent, with the progression from gun to hammer to just wishes, it’s becoming much less dangerous …

He said he could read fortunes in coffee grinds . He is my cheating lying ex boyfriend but at the time I didn't know that. It must have been funny to "read" my fortune in the coffee grinds and not tell me that he was sleeping with the fifteen year old neighbor.
