I've fallen in love and had my heart broken eventually. This was the first time I've been in love and I thought it was gonna end like how fairy tales usually end --- happy endings. It was one of my worst days and I thought that that was the last time I'm gonna fall in love. However, it is true that once you've met the man who can make you realize how wonderful it is to fall in love again, all the pains and sorrows that you felt before will soon fade away. And the wound in the past will now finally be healed. I am just so happy that now I met the guy who would do anything just to make me feel how special I am. All I know is that I'm happy with whatever it is that we have right now. Whatever it is --- may be love --- I just want to express my deepest gratitude for loving me unconditionally. Hope you could share your thoughts/experiences on love.

I've been in that pattern & it seemed like a cycle until I've finally learned to love myself first which is important before you love someone else so that if you enter a relationship & it didn't work out,it won't seem that the world fell down on you since you have so much love for yourself that you feel complete with or without a partner.

Love can come at any time in your life. Whether you're as young as Dakota Fanning or as old as Betty White, it's going to come. Yes the pain of falling out of love (especially when it wasn't your choice to fall out of love, but rather you were violently forced to fall out of it) would demotivate you enough to just give up and never even think of another person in the same way ever again. But when someone amazing walks into your life, you just forget all of that hurt and tell yourself that this is a chance for a fresh start. Sure there's a chance of getting hurt again, but you're willing to take that chance just for that person. And the best part of having someone new in your life is that you're going to find yourself thinking about that old love of yours less and less. A day will pass by, then a week, and then a month, and then you'll realize that you're learning to live again and most importantly, you're learning to love again. And that will make all the difference in your life. I'm really happy for you and wish you the best of luck with your new relationship. :D

Glad to hear that. I thought I met someone special on valentine's day, but, I'm not really sure whether I was really falling in love or I was just lonely. Before this, I loved someone for 5 years, my heart was broken since the first time I fell in love to that someone, I knew I don't have any hope to carry on this. I kept on loving that someone, I don't know why the F*** I kept on holding that feeling though I myself was sick of it, I can't let the feelings go. But it's just so happy to hear someone who has risen up from the darkest day when having her heart broken, it's heartwarming, and it makes me feel optimistic to view this world with endless possibility. The wound on my heart, It is cured I think, but I don't know what heals it, It happened magically on Valentine's day. No kidding. I'm a happier person now, and I wish all of u feel the same, and thanks for sharing the story.

i felt deeply in love many times, but then realize later that there was something lacking and fell out of love too. then there is the "one who got away" who i really thought was my 'real love' and yet, got hurt and mended a broken heart again. then as i was about to give up, then came "the one" who was God sent, and now we're married for almost 20 years now and blessed with seven sons!

Hi there, Great to know that you have found love once again! I have fallen in love and had my heart broken too... So far, I haven't found anyone whom I can give my love equally.

I fell in love once but it was lost too. It was very painful to me, he was my first love but we were not free to see each other, we only see each other during church activities and for a limited time. We don't talk to each other often because we are afraid that my aunt will know about us. I was staying with my aunt because i was working at their place at that time. She was so strict and she do not want me to have a boyfriend. One day, i did not see him at the church and i did not know what happened to him. After 6 months i learned that he found work in a place so far from where we stay. I did not fall in love again since then, i had a relationship but i could not say that i was in love with the man. Anyway, there is a saying that goes this way, "it is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all". Good Luck!
