That was really nice. Reminds me of a girl from middle school who I wanted to be friends with but was too shy to talk to her. She was super quiet like how I was, and it was a bit cute how her hair always seemed to cover half her face. I wanted to be friends with her but I just never knew how. And in the end I never got to talk to her

Several years later when I was a lot older, I went to the yearly fair over here and as I was wandering the crowded grounds, I walked right by her by sheer coincidence, and our eyes met for a very brief second. She looked at me with eyes very wide as if she recognized me, and then we past. At that moment several thoughts came to my mind about her and I wanted to talk to her again, but I just didn't know what to say, so I just continued on.

I probably never will talk to her, but for some reason, I always wonder if we could have ever became friends.

With a name like Chantelle, it's perfect for a flashback or a dream sequence.

A very nice love story. Sadly, it didn't have a happy ending, but those always make for the most impactful stories, anyway. For some odd reason, love that's never expressed always seems to burn with the greatest intensity. That's a part of why I like Dante so much. Consider reading La Vita Nuova, if you have a chance.It really helped me through my own experiences of unrequited love to know that I wasn't alone, but rather was in good company with people as far back as the medieval period.

I had a similar experience in high school. I pined after one young lady in particular for the better part of 3 years or so. I spent the first two shying away from her, and the last year getting close to her such that we became good acquaintances. We were very different from each other, but we both had great respect for one another - almost as though we idolized the mysterious part of the other that we ourselves lacked. I wound up confessing to her on the last day of my senior year. I even wrote one of those cliche confession letters with a few selections of poetry I had written for her. Sadly, she just didn't see me that way and rejected my confession. Yet she did so very kindly and gently. She didn't break my heart, she just sort of gently set it down, after which it shattered on its own. She still haunts my thoughts, sometimes. I fear (unfortunately) that I may never forget her... 'sigh'

EDIT - lol, it seems that looking up "unrequited love" on wikipedia actually gives a picture related to La Vita Nuova. Go figure... But yea, Dante's love just feels so.. real. It doesn't feel like its faked just for its own sake. I remember that there was a part where I actually started crying as I was reading it - not because it was sad, but because it was just so relatable. I myself experienced most of what he recorded in that little book.

Genma arterton =/= me

Not gonna work.


Cats nowadays don't know what the four letter word L.O.V.E.
It gets substitute as F.U.C.K.
A love that doesn't cost a thing, now comes with a ka-ching!
Getting laid to get paid but spreading aids at the same process.
Same cats that laugh at hard-working brothers, the fast food brothers, the brothers that have to go to work and go to college, brothers that have to work and pay their rents.

Love? Shit. Is it a shot in the arm that bursts like a heart attack?
Is this the same "love" where you would jump the tallest cliff and hopefully jagged rocks cushion your fall?
Is it like Helen of Troy where two countries fought each other just to get her hand?

Hopefully, you can tell what love and what lust is.

You do never really know until you go for it.

Two years ago I went through a pretty nasty situation with a girl, and I ended up leaving her. I wasn't ready for the kind of loyalty and commitment that she needed to help her through her problems (she had been a self-mutilator and a drug abuser from long before our relationship began). Though I managed to help curb these bad habits of her's several months into the relationship, the situation we went through drove her to the point of wanting to do these things again (and eventually actually doing them) so rather then staying, I prioritized my own mental stability and left, swearing that if ever faced with a situation such as this again, I'd be more prepared to stick it out.

What does this have to do with the topic? Two years later and I've yet to be with somebody. Though I believe it's partially because I may not be as ready as I think, another part of me believes that my actions two years ago left a heavy amount of negative karma upon me that I've yet to pay back. In the last year alone, my group of friends that I've known since I was about 8-12 years old has fallen apart completely, and not once, but twice has a woman I liked not only rejected me, but ended up dating or sleeping with one of my friends, and in one of those cases, cursing me out for being upset about it.

Lastly, that girl I dated two years ago? She's now dating one of my best friends who in the past month or so began ignoring me, and actually deleted me on Facebook. I couldn't help but lawl a little bit. I wasn't even mad that he's dating her, I'm just confused considering this guy has brought her bad mouthing me to my attention in the past.

I just dunno anymore guys. People are confusing.
