"I'm tired of looking for the perfect guy.
From now on, he can look for me."

Love Lost, Heartbreak Found
VISITORS
From an angel's wings to a fallen star, God makes everything but unbreakable hearts.
Jessica Andrews*

To love a person is to learn the song that is in their heart and sing it to them when they have forgotten.
Thomas Chandler

I think it is time I let you go, and that is so hard to do because some part of me will be in love with you for the rest of my life, but the daydreaming, the running in place .. it's not healthy. So this is me, cutting the cord. This is me, doing what I should have done eight months ago ... saying goodbye.
Dawsons Creek

It's friends that become the deepest love. It's like one day someone flicks a switch
and you wake up and your best friend becomes the person you could never live without! Love is finding that 'single most important being
to ever grace my existence.'
Dawson's Creek

I didn't realize how much I loved him until he was standing there and he wasn't mine any more.
Laura Esparza

If you're going thru hell, keep going.
Rob Estes

I liked you because you could make me smile. I fell in love with you because you made me want to be a better person. Now that you're leaving me, what am I supposed to do?
Lisa Gilbert


And I don't regret the rain, or the nights I felt the pain, or the tears I had to cry some of those times along the way. Every road I had to take, every time my heart would break; it was just something that I had to get through, to get me to you.
Hope Floats.



You gotta be fair to her.  She loves you and if you don't love her then you have to go tell her.
Jerry Maguire, movie

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
Helen Keller

I'm gonna smile, cuz I wanna make you happy, Laugh, so you won't see my crying, I'm gonna let you go in style, and even if it kills me, I'm gonna smile.
Lonestar

Each day, silently affirm that you are the type of person with whom you would want to spend the rest of your life.
Bob Moawad

The most terrible poverty is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved.
Mother Teresa

Sometimes I think that if I wasn't so goo at pretending to be, I'd be better at actually being happy.
My So-Called Life

The heart that can no longer love passionately must with fury hate.
Jean Racine

I never knew how quickly I would go from someone that you loved to someone you used to know.
Collin Raye

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way you deal with it is what makes the difference.
Virginia Satir

The roads of life are strewn with the wreckage of run-down, half-finished loves.
Ralph W. Sockman


To love and win is the best thing. To love and lose, the next best.
William M. Thackeray

They say love is right around the corner. I must be walking in circles.
Unknown

I die inside a little more each time you replace me.
Unknown  

If time ever told me that I could only have one last thing to say to you, one final plea to try and make you understand how it is I feel, it wouldn't be 'I love you.' It wouldn't be 'this was all pre-destined.' And it wouldn't be 'one day you'll regret this decision.' Although it would be heart wrenching, I would look into your eyes and say 'to love is to find freedom in its truest sense. And I would only hope one day you are able to let yourself be enveloped by the full  intensity of that emotion.' Those would be my final words of good-bye to you. It is only then that hope will have finally faded away and courage would help me go on. But always know a part of me will say: 'soul wants you, heart needs you. For you I am willing to try.'
Unknown

I don't understand how you can be so heartless, considering that you have mine.
Unknown

The one who loves the least, controls the relationship.
Unknown

It takes a lot to hate you, it takes too much to forget you, but it took so little to love you.
Unknown

No man is worth your tears and the one that is won't make you cry.
Unknown

I loved you. It's not that I fell out of love because that is impossible. I just couldn't handle the heartache anymore. It's not that I don't love you - it's that I can't." 
Unknown

You take the 'L' out of lover and it's over.
Unknown

When these days are gone, when all the love we gave to each other slowly fades away, when your beautiful smile is only here as a dream, and when the words 'I love you' are scripts of the past, I will always have the memories that were once moments, and I will always know that no matter what, I got the chance to be loved by you.
Unknown

So I'm sorry that I can't go on with you. And tonight may be a night I'll regret, but I'm already somebody's lover. He just hasn't found me yet.
Unknown

This is our last goodbye...it's over, just hear this and then I'll go; you gave me more to live for then you'll ever know.
Unknown

Missing you isn't the hardest part, knowing I once had you is what breaks my heart.
Unknown

I want to be the one you're waiting for, not the one waiting for you.
Unknown

I'm trying to get over you, but please tell me another way, because this one isn't working.
Unknown
It's easy to fall in love, but hard to find someone to catch you.
Unknown

I don't know whether to smile because he is my friend, or cry because that's all we are.
Unknown

Why do they call it a crush? Because that's how you feel when they don't feel the same way in return.
Unknown

It hurts to breathe because I know every breath I take proves I can live without you.
Unknown

Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.
Unknown

My life is about change. I change every day. I change my mind, and sometimes even my heart. But the one thing that will never change is the way I feel for you.
Unknown 

My "Once Upon A Time" didn't end "Happily Ever After."
Unknown

If he makes you fall for him make sure he's there to catch you.
Unknown

I must be wishing on someone else's star, cause it seems that someone else is always getting what I wished for.
Unknown

Your Mom always said that you would find the perfect guy, but did she ever tell you how to forget him?
Unknown

Watching you walk out of my life does not make me bitter or cynical about love, but rather makes me realize that if I wanted so much to be with the wrong person, how beautiful it will be when the right one comes along.
Unknown

My mind tells me to give up on love, but my heart won't let me.
Unknown

The part that sucks about love is that you DO get to choose who you love, but you DON'T get to choose who loves you back.
Unknown

I miss you a little, I guess you could say...a little too much, a little too often, a little more everyday.
Unknown

The magic of our first love was the ignorance that it would never end.
Unknown

Giving someone all your love is not an assurance that they'll love you back.
Unknown
A million words would not bring you back, I know because I've tried. Neither would a million tears, I know because I've cried.*
Unknown

I'd much rather be your lover than your friend, but I'd much rather be your friend than your nobody.
Unknown

Maybe it was wrong, but throughout my life I will never regret loving him.
Unknown  

You don't know how hard it is to get over you when every time I see you my heart begins to smile.
Unknown

After all this time you'd think that I wouldn't feel the same. But time melts into nothing and nothing's changed.
Unknown

Nothing is more painful, then realizing he meant everything to you, and you meant nothing to him.
Unknown

I'm sorry if I made you cry, I'm sorry if tears fell from your eyes, for that is not at all what I intended to do...but, just remember, for every tear that falls from your eye, from mine fall two.
Unknown

If you were my tear, I'd never cry, in fear of losing you.
Unknown

Falling in love is awfully simple. Falling out of love is simply awful!
Unknown

You lay awake crying over him, you go to sleep dreaming of him...but do you ever think there's someone crying over you?
Unknown

And if it all falls apart, I will know deep in my heart, the only dream that mattered had come true. In this life, I was loved by you.
Unknown

As long as you're happy, I'll deal with the consequences.
Unknown

Finally, I see that my happiness doesn't mean having you. My happiness comes from your happiness. And if you can be happy without me, then I can be happy without you.
Unknown

Loving you is like trying to touch a star, I know I can never reach you, but I can't help but try.
Unknown

I hate the way you love her like I love you.
Unknown

I never thought it could be so hard to lose something I never really had!
Unknown

And he grabbed my hand and half of me wanted to scream not to touch me and half wanted to beg of him not to let go.
Unknown


It's hard to make your head stop loving somebody when your heart still does.
Unknown

In a perfect world, when he's with her, he would be wishing he was with me; when he looked at her, he would be looking at me; when he smiled at her, his smile would be for me; when he thought about someone, he would be thinking about me. In a perfect world, he would realize that she wasn't the one he was supposed to be with and I would still be standing here waiting for him
still when he finally knows this. But this isn't a perfect world and people do get hurt; you smile when you feel like crying; you act like you're okay when you're falling apart inside and you let it go. You move on, because there's nothing else you can do.
Unknown

Somehow, the conversation mentioned your name, and someone asked if I knew
you. Looking away, I thought of all the times we had together, sharing laughter, tears, jokes,and tons more, and then without an explanation you were gone. I looked to where they were waiting for an answer, and then said softly 'once... I thought I did.'
Unknown

If you're lucky you can get a second chance with the one you love. Sometimes luck isn't enough.
Unknown

Why do we always go out of our way to hold on to the wrong ones and let the
right ones slip right through our fingers?
Unknown

Sometimes, no matter how long or hard you've loved someone, they'll never
love you back. And sometimes, you have to be ok with that.
Unknown

No matter how many times I tell you she'll break your heart, or how many
times she does it, you'll never give up. Why you ask. . .  Because you love her.
Unknown

And it's so hard to do and so easy to say, but sometimes you just have to walk away.
Unknown

The only thing worse than a broken heart is knowing you would give him another chance.
Unknown

I wish I had the guts to walk away and forget about what we had. But, I can't because I know you won't come after me, and I guess that's what hurts the most.
Unknown

Just because somebody doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't
mean they don't love you with all they have.
Unknown

Now it is my turn to go out and find someone that will love me the way I loved you.
Unknown

Hope is the denial of reality.
Unknown

When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."
When Harry Met Sally

Hearts will never be made practical until they are made unbreakable.
Wizard of Oz

I never knew it hurt so much to lose something you never really had.
The Wonder Years

In our young lives we search for someone to love, someone who makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope all the while wondering if somewhere and somehow there is someone searching for us.
The Wonder Years

Surviving the sadness


There's been a death, no one died

Without “I’m sorry,” those unkind words and deeds, once said and done, continue to float around us, wear us down, keep us unhappy. Forgiveness and “forgetness” never come because they haven’t been asked for.
