Still in love with ex
Posted on: 08/28/2009
I'm 14 and I'm still in love with my ex. She is all that ever runs through my mind and I don't want anyone else but her. This might sound cheesy coming out a guy, but I really thought that she was the perfect girl for me. I felt happy, sad, depressed, excited and so much more when I was with her. At times she tells me she still loves me but at times when she does it doesn't feel like she does. I would give up anything just to spend one more day with her. She's the best thing that has ever happened to me. She lives by Moreno Valley and I live in Whittier. What should I do? Should I just forget about her or should I keep trying again with her?
Nothing cheesy about love -- it gets us all and you are lucky to feel these things, but very young. My vote is that you find an activity that you like and maybe a girl that feels the same way about you that you feel about her. Love should not hurt!
