Ever feel like love is hopeless?

I know there have been similar topics, but sometimes I seriously feel as if finding love is hopeless! I've gotten my heart broken, like everyone else, and I had thought I was 'In Love'...and now, because of that experience, I feel like the word Love is overrated. What about you?

As I said before, love is a constant trial and error. You just have to search and wait at the same time. All you have to do now is love yourself first so that you'll be able to love fully the person whom you will eventually find. From my experience, I loved but I was not loved back. I was such a slave to love back then, but when my ex-bf said He doesnt need me in his life to survive, I decide to break up with him and change my gameplan. I had to take my pride back and said to myself that I must love myself and hope for the best to come. You see, we all deserve to be happy. You will find yours too, you just have to hope and pray. Right now I am happy coz we finally found each other. :) tc

I have to agree with you bismark, I had an ex that first of all cheated on me then he would string me along and say that he made a mistake and couldn't believe that he let me go and would run back into my bed and let me take care of him the whole time he was living with the other girl!! Like a dummy I kept taking him back and would cry myslef to sleep every night over him. Finally one day I had enough and put my life back together and stayed away from him and "our" friends so I wouldn't be tempted to go back to him. I went many years "hating" love and not able to find anyone to love and love me back. I fianlly accepted that I was going to be alone the rest of my life. I was 35 yrs old and single!! Well, then I meet this wonderful man who we were just friends at first and we both fell madly in love with each other. Right before we got married my ex tracked me down and wanted me back. He just knew I would come running back to him and take care of him and his 2 boys with the woman he cheated with on me. I told him NO that I'm getting married to best man on earth and we have been married for 7 years with 2 beautiful children. Love will come, you just have to be patient (I know that's very hard to do, believe me I know) and you will find that special true love.

Hi! Heart break is indeed painful especially if you love the person who caused it. But never think that finding love is hopeless. Just open your mind and your heart because love is not sought, it comes to you unexpectedly, sometimes in disguise. So don't let the hurt bring you down. Life must go on, and love? it'll come in its own sweet time. Enjoy life!

Boy, do I know where you are coming from. And I'm sorry to say that I don't have any answers for ya! lol I'm still struggling myself. I'm to the point where I just feel like you have to find that person in life that you can 'tolerate'. I know that sounds horrible, but most of the time that's the way it is. I have aunts and uncles and grandparents that have been married forever yet none of them were completely faithful. Whether it's one time or a million - cheating is cheating. I guess it's all about what you are willing to put up with! Good Luck and Welcome to myLot!
