This space is for anyone who has ever been hurt by love.
I create it for those of you who do not have a valentine, nor 18 bucks.
Share what you will.
I *heart* you, OP.
Well, I guess I'll get the party started.
I'm 47 and have never had anyone. No one has ever said "I love you" to me. And even though there's always a slither of hope somewhere deep down inside, I pretty much resolved myself years ago to the reality that some people are just meant to be alone and that I'm one of those people.
But other than that, I'm okay.
not hearing it does not mean someone doesn't feel it.
You could have many admirers who remain shy or distant.
You simply cannot read people's minds.
I've loved and been loved, but never at the same time.

ditto, thanks for putting it in such concise terms.
Less bitterness and more longing than I expected.
Being "in love" is overrated. I always looked for someone I liked and didn't get on my nerves.
R8...making you the most bitter of the posters so far.
R2 It doesn't matter if no-one says that to you. We come into this life alone and we leave alone. I hope you tell people you love them if you feel that way. Love is one of those things that very few people understand. It's a word used too often amongst those who don't know its meaning. It's just a word. I am sure if you look back at your life you will see that many people have loved you but may have not verbalised it.
you only get what you give...
I'm bitter and on a warpath today. Did something horrible that probably not only ruined the ex's V Day but most probably broke up his current relationship. I don't feel guilty either.
People are always saying how good looking I am but I feel either angry and hurt or just dead inside. I have no one specilin my life and I may never again, so comfort yourself with that, people who feel ugly, because looks don't matter for shit.
I was in love with a man recently ... totally unrequited, a crush really.
Found out he knew I was sweet on him and used to it to play mind games, hurt me because he could, and just for favors. (Would you mind doing X, Y, or Z?)
Felt like a fool, now I only speak to him when I absolutely have to. At no point has he even wondered, let alone asked why I don't chat with him any more. I assume he figured I wised up and the fun was over.
I feel better - a lot better, didn't realize so how much he was messing with me until I got away emotionally.
An asshole --- well, an asshole to me anyway.

Good. Because when you love them they drive you crazy because they know they can."

How very, very true.
Sent his gay singles profile link to his fiance's entire super strict Catholic family on Facebook. Oh btw he's marrying a woman because he says that he's " not gay anymore."
R13 I believe in karma as well. That's why because I loaned him money to go to school he broke up with me and moved in with her a week later, I hope that he burns in hell.
sitting here crying my eyes out because not only am I alone.. I have pneumonia so can't do much. Feel so unloved. Thank for making this thread..
R19, during my birthday last summer I was bedridden with a herniated disc, and my ex texted to say he was moving in with his rebound. I totally know where you are right now.
I hope the pneumonia heals quickly and you're back out in the world soon. Sending you love to wherever you are.
I read that Lucille was such a "bitter" Ball, that she was known as "Bitch Ball" throughout Hollywood.
Lucille "Bitter" Ball is MAIME!
R20: I cannot tell you how much your message means to me! I am seriously feeling suicidally depressed because I feel no one cares about me. I am sorry about what you went thru as well! THANK YOU.
R18 gets the DL Bitterest Cunt Award Of The Day!
YOU GO, GURL! FUCK THA HATERZ - AND FUCK UP YOUR EX!
Good for you!
"The men I like, don't like me. The men I don't like....don't like me."
You know Mary, that's why God invented paper bags.
If anybody hurt me, I'm thankful I'm no longer stuck with them. It's cause for celebration.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
