My ex is the kind of person who showers you with love, telling you how beautiful he thinks you are and other things like that. He's genuinely interested to hear your ideas about the world and types "You're so smart" whenever a gap comes into conversation. He's also the kind of person to be sincere about it.

My ex is the kind of person who's there for the little problems you have. He's the type who encourages you to write books and save the world, while both of you …

To my face you twist your words like vines of ivy,
make them look like gold, then you spread your lies behind me.
I thought you had my back, but as much as you denied it you never meant that.
Now you ask that I forgive, but in my heart God's mercy does not live.
I hate the person that you have become, yet love the person that I have won,
Through my encounters with the likes of you, I have been born anew...


I can write again …
Moving on means you must disappear.

A. and I met on Halloween night, at his house party. He was in the corner playing DJ and I recognized him from my law class so I struck up a conversation. Granted he isn't that cute, I had always found him strangely attractive.We exchanged numbers and later that night we were texting while I was at another party. He offered to come pick me up and walk me home, and I took him up on it. We talked and talked and talked outside of my apartment building and around …

He and I were very happy (or so I thought)... until his birthday last March. We had gotten in a fight over his ex-girlfriend from Wisconsin still sending him gifts, love letters and pathetic cards saying how much she missed him over a year after we had started dating. From that point until the end of September we started to grow apart... we had stopped having sex for the most part but we were still inseparable, I just figured we were in a dry spell. (We actually had sex …

I had just ended one relationship and another popped up in its place. Maybe she just happened to be my year long rebound. I met Christina at work and confided to her how bad my relationship with my then girlfriend was becoming. Christina told me I deserved better and I should stand up for myself. Christina; along with my other friends were right. I did deserve better. A few weeks later I broke up with my girlfriend and the next night I met up with Christina. That was the night …
A couple months ago my ex-boyfriend finally fessed up to cheating. Four girls. I always knew he was screwing around behind my back, but God, denial is such a beautiful thing. Anyway, I came across Co-Ed Magazine’s blog How To Cheat: Not That You Should, But Here’s How You Could and thought, “Great, a step-by-step instructional article teaching guys how to cheat.” Then I realized this article wasn’t necessarily the Spawn of Slutty Satan, but rather a gift from above that just needed a new …

I.Hate.You! I have never felt such contempt for one human being, ever. It has been 10 years since we met, 3 since I left you.
When I met you, you swept me off my feet. You were my Prince Charming. I have never loved like I loved you, not before not since. I was a young, dumb, wounded, single mother fresh out of a physically abusive relationship. You were everything I needed and wanted. I willed you and wished you to …

I was married for 8 years if you want to count the last year while waiting for our divorce to be final. The last few years really were hell. When asked how I feel now, I don't have to lie and say... happy! I am happy! During the time that I was with my husband, he stopped brushing his teeth. Talk about disgusting. He did not just stop for a few days, I am talking about 2-3 years off and on with me begging and pleading every morning. I would …

I gave him my heart; he gave me agita. Could he have been conceived on my 11th birthday? According to Chinese astrology, we were both born under sign of the snake. A healer once said “that man” I was crying over was a relative in a past life, someone with whom I’d shared a heritage, perhaps a brother. Considering that in this life he’s an only child and I have a sister, maybe that’s why we couldn’t get it together. I used to be rational. Except possibly in matters of …

It was the weekend... texting with my best friend at 6 am in the morning. I decided to go out and have fun. I dailed my ''favorite'' number and pushed the green button.
"Hello?'' he said. My heart beated with joy. I then asked.
"Hey babe, want to go out?'' i was hoping for a joyful response till he said.
"i can't i have plans.... why are you always in my business?"
"what?"
"why are you always in my business? YOUR ALWAYS WHERE R U GOIN AND STUFF??"
"HOLD …

Three weeks before our wedding, he walked out the door and I never saw him again. Ever. He said, “The best thing I can do for you is to get out of your life before I ruin it.” As far as I could tell, he was ruining my life at that moment. I felt like I was in one of those scenes in the movies where the actor is zoomed in on and the whole background is moving at the same rate, creating a whooshing effect …

My ex had a beard. We didn't have much in common, besides the fact that we were dating each other. We would take walks through the streets of Worcester and he would whisper sweet nothings in my ear. We held hands and shied away from big groups of college students who looked like they might be under the influence of something. We cuddled in my bed and I laughed a lot, happy to have found someone.

One time we sat on a stone bench, and he told me …

To my ex:

You were by far the worst person I have ever known. How I actually ended up with you, only God knows. A fixer upper, with emotional baggage, and a paralyzing inferiority complex that made life with you unbearable. You ripped apart those around you because you hated yourself so much, your ferocious tirades of hate and venom spewed forth with such force, at times I questioned whether I could ever recover from the searing statements. They still echo in my mind sometimes, a distant taunt from …

Ex would've made a great drill-sergeant.
My boyfriend kissed me at midnight on New Year ’s Eve. We were standing on the roof of the local drug store. A friend and I had found our way up there when I was kid and I would go there when I was feeling down. It was my safe place. At sixteen I didn’t think I needed a safe place. I had him.
On New Year’s my best friend and I took a few beers from my parent’s fridge and met my boyfriend and some of …

On the 18th of November 2007 I made the the biggest mistake of my life. I let the only person I've ever loved walk away, I should have fought for us but I didn't, I just let him. Too young to realise my mistake, for nearly 2 years I've denied my mistake. After a stay in hospital and a breakup with someone I didnt care about, I admitted my mistake but at the time, he wouldnt talk to me, I was the thing that he hated most in the world. …

All show, no go, only blow.
