story 1: I think we held hands.
story 2: He taught me everything i know about effort.
story 3: This one didn't say much. Point of attraction turned problem.
story 4: Imagine sitting down at a lovely breakfast joint waiting for him. hours later he never shows. no use getting mad.. i entertained myself doodling on napkins, hummed, and made friends with my brain.

Story 1: I betrayed my ex-girlfriend to be with her.

Story 2: She left her ex-boyfriend one year later.

Story 3: We lived together for one and a half year. It supposed to be a happy ending.

But...

Story 4: Imagine seeing a Fiat stopping by our apartment at 23:00, and she walking out of the car and telling me that she waned to be with that guy in the car. Now multiplies by one and a half year.

Hm. Doesn't seem like my story is as over as I thought it was. Why are relationships confusing and strange?

lol my life should have been a tv show. I'd relay my story in the confines of a solitary room, with no one else around. :P

The first guy:  Wasn't true to who I thought he was.  Made me doubt myself.  Almost took something from me.  In the end, made me better, stronger, made me try, made me take the leap.  In the end, I am glad it ended how it did.

The second guy: Is the most true, genuine, sweet, loving, good person I know.  Makes me brave, makes me try, loves me for all the parts of me (even the ones that aren't always lovable), knows me better than anyone else.  He is my best friend.

 

The Moral: I couldn't get to the second guy, to the life I have now, the life I love, without the first guy.

i'm gunna go with the jane layout ;]

  • story 1: everybody underestimated him, he was a great guy when i talked to him... i was young.
  • story 2: he was a bit older than me, i didn't want to say 'no' because i didn't want to hurt his feelings... in the end, say 'yes' obviously hurt his feelings anyway.
  • story 3: he was genuinely the first guy i was comfortable with, but it didn't last long.
  • story 4: the most significant guy in life (who wasn't family). he was literally my best friend, but it grew to something more. we were on/off for 4-5 years, but as much as i hurt him, he was always there for me. 'was'... i really miss him, as my best friend. i didn't deserve him as anything more.
  • story 5: was somewhere between story 4. he was a good friend, it shouldn't have gone past that.
  • story 6: ... i shouldn't have bothered. at least he gave me my love for 'the office' ;]

something i've realized: i love the idea of 'love' but have never been it. i am way too independent for my own good- i don't think it made any of the stories easy. i honestly feel bad for always being the reason things never worked out. :/

My story is done and it wasn't a happy ending. Still not sure I'm ready to share it.

This is more of some thoughts I have on love vs a story of love.....

Point 1: I think the term love is very casually thrown about these day, sometimes used so often it loses a bit of its meaning.  I do believe in love and think its very special, but I just dont like its overuse for inappropriate circumstances

Point 2: Falling in love is one of the most amazing euphoric feelings in the world.  Your heart races when you're around them, you yearn for the next time you'll be around them or talk to them, you attempt the amazing to get even the tiniest smiles and let them know how special they are to you.....I think half of falling in love is learning all about them, the little oddities, quirks, the special things that make them so unique, the other half is learning to appreciate/live with such said quirks haha

Point 3:  Sometimes you need to lay it on the line, if its really that worth it.  Great rewards dont come without at least a little bit of risk.  If you hide your heart away to protect and shield it from being hurt ya dont give it a chance to truly find happiness.  I wear my heart on my sleeve, sure it gets a lil bumped and bruised but it keeps beating, it may get heart but it will survive..

just some thoughts that have been tumbling around my head

 

thx for humoring me by reading em

Does anyone watches Chuck (the tv series)? yeah. if you are a guy you would definitely notice/had a crush on Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski). My dream came true about 2years ago when i moved to TX for college.

I met a Czech foreign student named Petra Doubravska. She looks just like the actress, but more real and bigger bottom.... anyways.. she is about 3years older than me. She is Neuropsychology major. She is smart, pretty, sweet, funny and blonde. (OH YEAH). We dated, we lived together. She makes the best breakfast ever! just waking up next to her or seeing her making me breakfast, it all seems surreal. beautiful girl like her with a guy like me..

But, all good things must come to an end. She and i had a serious r/s for 2 year and about 7 months ago, she graduated and had to go back to Czech Republic. She got a job offer which pays really well and stuffs. She asked me if i would follow her. I had a real big dilemma. But in the end i had to choose. i chose to stay here and pursue my doctoral degree. she respected my decision. it was a sad goodbye.

you know when you're in love when you cant sleep because reality is finally better than the dreams.

you know when you're heart broken when you sleep all day long because waking up and the 1st thing you'll think of is her.

Story 1: The reason why I began to smile each day. At least once.

Story 2: There were too many problems, and too many tears, and I learned how to grow up.

Story 3: An unmistakable tale of abuse and deception, and it's made me so much stronger.

Story 4: A wonderful companion, but a bit of a pokemon nerd. ^^
