dear old love

Sabrina, a wonderful, soulmate of a friend, introduced me to a site that she knew I'd love - it's called Dear Old Love. It is a compilation of people's notes to their past loves... some are bitter, some nostalgic, some hilarious and others just plain sad. But (as she knew I would) I love them all. I'm a hopeless romantic and I just can't help it...

Here's a little taste of what you'll find:

you made me wish i was beautiful. he made me realize i am.


i think of you, too, often. too often.



i have never been as happy with someone as i was when i wasn’t quite with you.

he’s awakened feelings in me i thought you stole forever.


we have the same birthday, our dads are diabetic, and our naked butts are the same shape. good luck finding all that with someone else.


i told you i was deathly allergic to mushrooms, and you ordered a shiitake burger for dinner.

i’m trying very hard to stay mad at you. it’s tough, though, because you never did anything bad. you merely never did anything good.

can you please please please pull it together? the fact that i dated you is ruining my reputation.


i don’t think my heart ever pounded like that after just a hug before.


i don’t know how many more times i can say goodbye.


if you’d asked, i would have walked 10,000 miles for you. the beauty of him, though, is that he would never, ever, ask me to.


i just brought home an iphone. it says it take 2 days and 10 hours to walk to your house, which i would do if you'd open the door.


enough with the games already. you won. get back in my life already.


i swore i wouldn't miss you unless you missed me too. just so i won't be a liar, i sure as hell hope that you're missing me.

I check this site everyday now. It's like my email, only more vague.

Love you, soul mate.
