Real Love is When Two Broken People Find Each Other

As the girl who completely got blindsided and fooled in the relationship, it takes an amazing group of friends to pick up the pieces.

Letter to all my different types of Loves

Each time you jump into a relationship, you think its love. Once you are out of the relationship and with experience, you realize that what you thought was love was either lust or pieces of love.  I wish I was one of those people who just had to test out a few guys and found…
