we give love a bad name


[mood |blahblah]

I'm glad there's a community like this, with other people that feel the same way I do. I was so in love with my last boyfriend and things were so wonderful and dreamlike for quite awhile and there was no hint that anything was wrong and then everything just crumbled and it left me so crushed. It's really hard to move on. I've got great friends, but I don't think they really understand what I went thru, all of them have these perfect longterm relationships (10 mon. to 3+yrs) and they just tell me to forget about him and move on, but that's a hell of a lot easier said than done and I mean it's easy for them to say that while they're all in love and problem free, but it's not that easy for me. I've been so lonely and just last week I ended up finding a guy that I'm friends w/benefits with now. He's not a boyfriend, but he's very nice and honest and hanging out with him has made me feel a little better, but my friends seem to look down on me for it. It's like they think I'm a slut or something just cuz he isn't my boyfriend and that hurts. I dunno, I just needed to vent a little. If anyone has any advice or anything, it'd be much appreciated. Thanks.

I haven't been around these parts in a while.

But all I can say, is whatever makes you happy. don't let other people tell you what you should and shouldn't be doing. if this friend with benefits thing helps you, makes you happy, or at the least, gives you something enjoyable to do with your time, then by all means, do it (pun intended? sure, why not?).

You can never FORGET about someone. what you can do, is realize that things didn't work out, and now you have the opportunity to see what else is out there. Everyone you meet shapes who you are. to forget someone would be like forgetting a part of yourself.

If any of this is still applicable, awesome. you definitely wrote this a month and a half ago.
