“As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling.“
Marilyn Monroe

  1. My girlfriend and I were happy as far I could tell and I never thought that we would break up. When her cousin died in a tragic car accident she went to her family on Mexico for a week. I couldn’t go because I was in the middle of entertaining out of town clients for work. She did not seem to be upset that I could not go so I let her be. The next thing I knew, she reconnected with an old friend from high school that she had a crush on years back and they started to have an affair! I had no clue what was going on until she came back from Mexico. She proceeded to see this old friend and I caught her and her old friend one night hugging each other. I confronted her and she told me the truth about what happened. We broke up and went our separate ways. Neither of us fought for our relationship. I was angry and decided not to be upset about it and just keep it moving. Then after about few months of no contact with her I became sad. I wanted her to tell me she wanted to be with me and not her old friend. I contacted Dr.Mack for a love spell and he truly helped me! he was able to get her to miss me she wanted us to get back together again. She had lot of regrets and felt bad for not fighting to keep me and for cheating in generally. she cherish our relationship so much more now and we are together now!

      Before reading this beautiful quotes, i ‘m telling myself “Not to fall inlove again ” because it really hurts and very painful when someone you are loving the most left you in the middle of the darkness alone.
      Live a life, accept the reality, and face the present/future.

      Thank you for sharing this quotes.

  2. Just amazing….All these thoughts are just deep and definitely expressed by the broken heart. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I seek for help when My boyfriend left me and no one could do anything towards my condition not until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine Robinson.buckler. I contacted Robinson.buckler @{{yahoo}}. com he assured me that my boyfriend will come back to me. I took his words with faith and today my boyfriend is back to me as well all within 24 hours after i contacted him. If there’s anyone out there that needs his help should get in touch with him now

  4. All I wanted from you was for you to notice me but you can’t forget about her. It’s sad how I wanted you since last year and you would even notice me. But this year you found someone else. But when she left you, you would look back at the memories you had with her. You would also cry in your room everytime you think of her because she was your first love. Last year you noticed me and now you don’t even remember me.

  5. Dated my boyfriend for 13 years.we have one son and am 7 months pregnant.i have just found out he has been seeing and sleeping with his colleague for a year and a half.when I first got suspicious,I confronted him and he said she was just a colleague.i looked through his phone and it was all there.when I asked,he still denied till I showed him the evidence,that’s when he accepted and apologised and wants us back.
    Truth is I can’t get to forgive him even when I badly want to.i feel hate building up.dont want anything to do with him .
    He does everything to be better but it’s appreciated by all who get to see it but I see AN ENEMY TO MY LIFE.
    I don’t know if am just still hurting but am sure I don’t want him in anyway near the rest of my life

  6. I was in a live-in relationship with a man for 6+ years. I left everything for me n now he left me for another woman.
    He used to like her when they were small.
    Please help me to get him back to me as I can’t live without him

  7. heart can be broken many times, and still heal perfectly….unless you felt true love. lucky or unlucky to experience true love…because after…you can never be the same

  8. Hey Steve,

    great compilation! Yes, a broken heart can hurt for quite some time. But as long as you still have friends and are able to maintain a positive outlook on life, your broken heart will heal.

    This quote here is sad though: “I have to admit, an unrequited love is so much better than a real one. I mean, it’s perfect… As long as something is never even started, you never have to worry about it ending. It has endless potential.“

    Yes, if you life like that you don’t get hurt. But you are also missing out on every positive aspect of love. This person has basically locked away her heart. Hopefully she will one day find an amazing partner.
