  • Yes I have and I still got the scares to prove it. The kind that don't go away.
  • Yes... a dull rusty knife. Never date friends!
  • No and i'm happy about it sounds painfully poetic
  • a) Yes and b) I'm not liking the sound of this question my friend.
  • You know a phone call is going to go badly when it you hear "What would you say if I told you I've been cheating on you?"
  • No, because I never relied on anyone other then myself to complete my world.
  • Oh yes. But that experience is long gone. And now I couldn't be happier that he broke my heart, it turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. =)
  • Yes but it wasn't intentional.....he had to leave this world early.
  • yes..by someone I had lived with for 7 years..I came home one day and there was no one home. That was 25 years ago. I still have no explanations.
  • Yes but not intentionally so I do not suppose it really counts.
  • Yes once a few years ago, i had never experienced anything like it and i hope i dont again, i lost 5st in weight when it happened and thought i would never get over it, but thanks to my friends and family i was able to get through it and come out the other side a better person, telling myself i was way too good for them and i now have a wonderful partner and i have never been happier
  • It's only that way for the melodramatic, so "Yes".
  • Yes, I did, but life goes on. I got over it after some moping and drug abusing. If you can miss out that part, it's not so bad. It's stuff like that that makes you stronger and wiser for next time!
  • The knife wasn't dull. It was sharp and came to my heart by surprise. Heartbreak is painful and the word painful could even be considered an understatement in the situation I'm talking about.
  • yes over and over by the same person. now he's long gone
  • Oh yes. Going through that right now. He was my world. I thought... Then the internet got in between us. He met women on dating sites, kept up conversations, talked to them imstead of me and basically it ruined us, just like it did his marriage. He's still on there, I'm alone. He see's nothing wrong. Everyone else is to blame according to him. Love sucks right now.But I'm getting stronger each day dealing with it. It sucks, I lapse back, but then I talk to him and he opens his mouth and nothing good comes out. He is so not worth it.
  • Yes, about 10 years ago. I think I'm over it, although I will not let myself become that vulnerable again. Who was it who said 'You should always be in a relationship with someone who loves you more than you love them'?
  • Yes. There are very few people out there who have ever been in a relationship that haven't had their hearts torn out, spat on, squished and shoved back in.
  • Yes, several times. The first was when I was a senior in highschool and I fell for this really popular guy who was the class valedictorian and jock. He was one of those guys that was perfect at everything. He turned out to be a real jerk though and treated me like dirt when he found out I liked him. I had a couple of crushes in my early twenties that never worked out, and the last guy I was really crazy about dumped me after 3 years of stringing me along. I thought I'd never get over him but that was almost two years ago so I'm starting to feel better again.
  • No...but on the other hand I've never truly fallen in love either...
  • Nope. I don't think anyone will make my life complete.
  • Yes i have, i did avere thang for that person and he dident care.
  • yes i have i have at school and my so called bf lloyed was down a vacan hall makeing out with my "best freind" oh yea thats one of the worst things i went through -roxy
  • A few times.
  • oh yes...it was one hell of a ride..
  • yep...but only once, I learn fast.
  • Every day.
  • Sure have! The heart is still mending, and there are still some days when the feelings come back just like it was yesterday. It hurts like hell and it is not something that I would wish on my worst emeny. Even though it's a feeling you can't even being to explain and you feel like you are the only one going through it and no one understands, something inside tells you it is not true. You just gotta keep pushing forward, and rely on the great friends and family to help you get through. Without them in my life I would be a complete wreck! I literally got sick and got down to 96lbs (i am 5'2" and used to be a solid (all muscle) 130lbs.) without even knowing it. The mental emotional and physical tourmoil was so great, but friends and family pulled me through (even though it is still a work in progress). It gets easier and the days get better and I have to remind myself that my crying, heartache and hold on life won't bring him back or make me happy. He has moved on and is not thinking about me so why should I be at a standstill??? Life goes on. I felt whole with him in my life, but I also have realized that I am stronger than I ever knew I could be and I am complete without him. yes there is a void and emptiness at times but that is not for him to fill anymore. I can do it on my own so when the next person comes along i will be complete for them and we can compliment (not complete) each other.
  • NO, I was the one holding the knife. I had to get him before he got me.
  • No.I've never made the mistake of assuming that it was someone else's job to make my life complete.
  • Yes, my husband of 14 months decided to cheat on me when our son was 2 months old...it's been about 7 months, and it still hurts every day.
  • Yes!! and now he wants it back and I am trying to feed him the broken pieces, ((( Good luck swallowing))) very sharp edges specially when it comes to him and his huevos grandes trying to get me back.....the nerve of him.....
  • yes i did experience it, the stabbed was intense and hurts so much that each night ill cry myself to sleep...
  • Yea it's the worst feeling ever. I was looking at engagement rings with my ex and a week later he told me he was leaving. Go figure that one out. We have a daughter together and it makes it that much harder. I know that things will get better and to keep your head up.
  • Nahhh, it was more like he broke it and then backed over it with his new BMW as he left. After almost 3 years he didn't even bother to break up with me--he got a job offer out of state and just left. Nice.
  • YES 3 DAYS AGO I FEEL COMPLETELY DEAD INSIDE
  • i'm thinkin more you know those egg beaters? try sawing the edges off and then shoving it on high into my chest. deep fried in disappointment. but it's not because i thought they would make my world complete. i knew that was up to me still hurt like a bitch. like i've said before. i'm not dead yet. i'm working on invincibility now.
  • yeah i did he got back with his ex after saying he loved me and wanted to marry me. then i found out he proposed to her while we were goig out..i loved him with all my heart and soul and being without him makes the world seem black and white
  • yeah. ripped to pieces, shredded apart, torn to fragments, mind f*****d,.... so i ended it.
  • Yes, I have. It was 14 years ago now, and all I can really say about it now is "good riddance". In retrospect, he was a true psychopath.
  • Oh yes!! I am going to the hospital to have the first 50 stitches out next year.
  • yes my ex.
  • yes, and i was literally stabbed in the back by the same man
  • Yes. And you know it takes a long time to heal and re gain confidence in yourself and others. Don't blame yourself. People who have the capacity to inflict so much pain are not worthy of any recognition, but you are. You are special-tell yourself that every day!
  • Oh, yes. In fact, there's a snippet of a song that I came up with that describes it pretty well: I am a man whose heart has been broken, too many times to repair. I am a boy whose dreams have been shattered, but nobody seems to care. Most people look at only the outside and say that's all there is to see. I'm looking for someone who'll make the effort to see the real me. Unfortunately, that's the only part I can come up with...
  • Yeah but I was 16, so I dont really count that.
  • Yes my x-husband of 8 yrs, n the military, was away station elswhere for about 1yr then came hm was with me and our 2 children for 3 months, one day packed his clothes and left. I found out he had a girlfriend he moved in with her he has been with her for about 6 yrs I loved this guy so much he broke my heart so badd, I now have a boyfriend we have been 2gether for 2yrs, and have a 6 month old girl, deep down inside I still love him, sad right?
  • Yes I have and I am living it right now. The man I want to spend the rest of my life with has driven a long blunt blade through my heart and he has no idea just how much his actions have hurt and destroyed me. It happened during a recent break-up and we are now trying to mend the pieces, so I am trying very hard to work through this. We are both middle aged by the way. He sings and records beautiful songs and sends them to me as a token of his love for me. One song in particular 'Stuck on you' by Lionel Richie, he told me how special it was and how much it demonstrated his love for me. He sings on a weekly basis at a karaoke bar and had always said no one but me would ever hear him sing that song. Wrong, just one day after our break-up he sung it to the crowd at that bar and then posted about how popular and successful the song was received by the crowd and the DJ in another forum. Another day passes and we start attempting to work out our problems and I wasn't aware at that stage he had sung it at the karaoke bar. He told me he had not meant to sing it, but because we had in fact broken up he just did. I would never have dreamed he could sing that song in public knowing how much it had meant to me. I still for the life of me can't understand how he was able to sing it without breaking down, as he is for the most part such a sweet, kind and caring gentle man. My only wish is that he had not told me he had sung it to the strangers at the karaoke bar because I would never have known he did. Now, I am having difficulties listening to any song he sings and I hope this will pass as singing is so important to him. How much did this song mean to me, read the e-mail I sent to him when I got it? Yes, I love him very much but I hope I never have to hear this song ever again.
  • Yes, but now it's been about 15 years and the pain is gone, but the memories are still ever present reminders of how gullible I really was.
  • Yes, and even 20 years later, it still hurts.
  • Im so confused :(
  • Yes by my ex and he stabed me in the back while rippingmy heart out.
  • Yeah, my fiance broke up with me, saying we were to serious. He wanted to see other people, but he still talks to me all the time. so i don't even have time for my wounds to heal. he keeps breaking my heart over and over agian.
  • YES! and I am still with this person, I acturally married him, and still til this day, it still hurts as it was just yesterday, not a day that goes by that I dont think about them to together, it kills me. but all of what I feel, I keep it to myself most of the time, and that kills me even more slowly. I cry sometimes at night thinking how I can leave someone I love so much!the only one I ever thought of spending my life with. the one I cant image life without still. what do you do? just ride it until you can finally see that you can with without him...
  • Sure have.
  • It has taken years to feel like I could start breathing again but one thing that helped me was.......if he could live without me......I would learn to live without him.......walk your truth I was told by him that I was his other half, all of his weakness I was his strength and vise versa on and on......Now if he can live without me then I can too. That is what has gotten me thru.........It has been l l/2 years and I am still not really breathing yet but the pain has started to dull. Good luck
  • I LOVED MY BOYFRIEND SO MUCH I COULD GIVE UP MY LIFE FOR HIM AND I BELIEVED HE LOVE ME TOO,UNTIL LATELY WHEN HE CHEATED ME AND LEFT ME FOR THAT GIRL AND EVEN TOLD ME HE LOVES THE GIRL WHAT MAKES IT WORSE IS M PREGNANT WITH HIS BABY
  • I feel like that now split wit bf saturday been arguin for 18mths since i saw him drunk kiss his own sons girlfriend on lips peck but gut said it was wrong, got punched in face for it too, and now his son come back t live wit him cos they split up but now back together, i been drinking a lot since it happened he denies it but it was wrong, he plonked himself between them with his arms round them he is 43 not 18 and his son fell asleep, i had been in bed and come downstairs t c him say u ok babe and peck her on lips, before this he has been flirty and pub,friends, cars, bikes come before me and he not bothered that we have split up by the look of it, I am constantly cryin, he has what he wants now them living there the easy life going where he wants when he wants and he seems just fine i cant work, eat, sleep my family say he is an idiot and he will never change my heart is breaking so yeah i do know how you feel
  • yes. It wasn't very nice at the time. I cried for ages and off and on at work, couldn't control myself. Didn't want to eat. Went back to him three times but doubts got bigger and bigger that we just weren't going to work. All I had been doing was putting off the fact that I had to go into that big world out there and learn how to be by myself, all over again. Took me a good ten months, just crying in the bath, being down all the time, then one day I just woke up and thought, I can't keep doing this anymore. He didn't treat me well. He didn't take me out(only where he wanted to go). He only wanted to be close when he wanted..by the time I had gone through all the reasons against, I realised there was more against than for which was why I finished it. 6 months later, I met a new boyfriend who stayed in cos he wanted to be with me so went out with his friends less(I felt guilty and at the same time enjoyed it). He took me out to the pictures. He even came to the shops with me. Been happily married for a few years now. Glad I didn't waste anymore time on my ex.
  • Yeah. And I was stupid enough to keep going back. Lesson learned. We've been seperated 2 mos. now and I'm still alive.
  • YES. my belief system of a lifetime was destroyed. he married my only friend. it has been over 30 years and i have never been able to trust fully, men or women. yes, i had lots of therapy. oh, i also have near total photographic memory, it's a curse, i cannot forget anything. thanx for listening. do others feel this way? oldielocks
  • yes unfortunately :(
  • Right about now, it would be a year since I thought she would make my life complete, and then in a week or so from now, it will be about a year since the ripping and stabbing began. Psh...what a bitch...
  • Yeah, I was so blind, so young and so stupid that I sometimes ask myself WHY I didn't see the warning signs all over my face. Sometimes love blinds us like a mother fker
  • No, But I have done it like 3 times I feel so so bad about it. I broke up with my ex who was the most lovinbg caring and amazing person I could have ever hoped to have had the pleasure of being with and I broke up with her because I wanted to move back to my home town. I know now that I will regret it for the rest of my life and I'm so sad. I just picture her alone and needing me, it rips me apart.

  • yes. two hours ago. and i'm falling apart. i don't think he's aware of how much i'm hurting right now either...
  • many times by the same person.... he is a con man.... he knows how to lie.... but this it it, im not buying anymore of his lies.... he got caught red handed this time.... i saw a pic of him with another girl, she was only wearing a bra !!! she told me he took her from the pub had sex with her 6 times, and didnt pay her, so she called me after going thru his phone, she realised i must be the gf cos of the "i love u" messages .... how painful is that? especially after he proposed to me 2 weeks ago, and tried getting me pregnant !!!
  • Unfortunately, yes. Wouldn't call it violent, but it sucks nonetheless.
  • Yes. He made me feel as if I was the one that had ruined everything, when I find out, he had been getting pics from some girl in lingerie, and talking to girls for hours on end. Plus, singles chat lines. and now he won't even answer my emails...
  • YES HOWEVER I KEEPED MY CONFIDENCE, WENT OUT HAD A GOOD TIME AND GOT OVER IT. A MAN IS JUST A MAN WHAT YOU NEED TO KEEP IN MIND IS.. THERE IS ONE JUST LIKE HIM AROUND THE CORNER...
  • yes..25 years ago I came home one day and after 7 years there was no one there:(
  • Is there an echo in here? Yea! 2 weeks ago. I moved to another state with my fiance last month, EX that is! I'm from GA, shes from PA! She came to visit me in Atlanta, and we left for PA together so we could be together & establish our relationship. We were going to marry next year! 2 weeks later she threw my tattoo equipment down her sister's steps! Hearts get broken, Diamonds get stolen, But Tattoos last forever!
  • Many times. No biggie, you get used to it.
  • when i found pics of my wife and a guy I had suspected she had slept with. and then everytime she talked to me afterwards.
  • Who hasn't?
  • Absolutely, when someone you love more than anything walked out and not look back, it felt like a betrayal like our relationship had meant nothing to him..
  • Yes, by my ex, who for all intents and purposes, i refer to as Voldemort, cuz, quite simply, he just won't leave me alone.
  • i am experiencing this feeling right now. he was my world and i had no idea anything was wrong. we were always so happy all of the time. he just came in one day and told me he wasnt happy. it came out of nowhere and i dont even know what to do with myself anymore. i dont want to go on. we had our futures planned out together and now im left with nothing.
  • oh yeah, that's what happened when I received the divorce papers in the mail that day!
  • No. Only I can make my world complete--a relationship with someone I love just makes my complete world more wonderful.
  • Yea. You for one. Remember I'm the guy that could never understand what you were/are going through. You were also very blunt about it. Thank you for making me feel like I could never do anything for you.
  • YES AND NOW I REGRET MEETING HIM.
  • No, but I suppose thats the what my ex thinks I've done to him. How can I make it better?!?! Without him getting mad at me or getting the wrong ideas..
  • Yes i have, and i am currently trying 2 find away 2get away from him. He still constantly lies and cheats and it is turning what love i have 4 him in 2 hate.
  • Well sort of, I wasn't expecting anything so not really, but sort of.
  • yes i have had gotten a broken heart.the one who broke it was the one who i thought loved me but didnt and wanted to do what his friends say to do and also the one who was not their for me when our son had past...he's such an ass whole!ugh
  • ya my boyfriend!!!!!!!!!!!!!i see where u are girlfirenits hard i cryed for three days.it was pain.he was my everything until he went after my best friend. it sucked.so now were just friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Hell yes only it wasnt broken it was shattered, violently ripped to pieces, cut into confetti, fed to the wolves, cremated then stabbed with a sharp knife
  • yah....and i have never felt like i have loved someone and for the first time i did and he just broke and ripped my heart
  • Sadly yes and sometimes I wonder will I ever love again?
  • Time and time and time and time again. By many of my so called boyfriends. And they wonder why woman suffer insecurities and trust issues. Just happened to me last night. And so begins the long bitter road yet again and one day I will be stupid enough to trust someone and have this done again.
  • yes i was really badly hurt when ex left me!!!!! things were as if torn apart !!!!! my world become dull, i was madly in love with him but because we were from different religion it was impossible for us to get married !!!!! family was opposing this relationship and we ended up after being together for three years. it was quite difficult !!!!!!! i spent months and years thinking about him!! i decided to move on when he got married
  • yes. i know how it hurts when your searching for imperfections in someone and you dont find any untill you find out the only reason you didnt was because he hid them all away from you. it hurts to find out soemones FAKE and just a liar when you think they are your everything and life would suck without them. and then you are left with scars because you never fully heal from something like that. a little peice of your heart can never be filled by someone else even tho that person has moved on and has no desire to be there. you miss them but you know that now that they are gone its whats for the better and you know they really didnt deserve you if they were willing to risk hurting you with all thier lies. they might say it wasnt there fault of they were just confused or pressured into it but we all make our own descions in life and whats done is done and you cant go back no matter how much you want to.
  • yes its been going on for 3 weeks since the day i had a miscarriage and the father my fiance said to me i need space for three months but i promise ill talk to u later. and didn't even comfort me for one sec over the death of our child. since then i called him four times .. he hangs up on me everytime. fml!!! feels like im dying
  • yes ,,,i was waiting to throw her a suprise party on her birthday...wen i called to invite her , she sd she is sleeping with her boyfriend..about whom she never told..
  • yes. two days ago. and i'm bleeding.
  • Umm yeah I have dealt with heartbreak..that's why I learned to only rely on myself. I'm not saying don't love someone, but if you make your world revolve around somebody else you're at risk because everything in their life will impact yours. I'm only 24 though so I ain't really trying to be too serious with a female for a while.
