    Oh no you’re totally fine! :)

    I have not unfortunately. Though my last ex was probably the one I loved the most, I couldn’t be able to fully resonate with him or have that in-depth connection that I was truly seeking for. Sometimes I do wonder if I’m too idealistic and hindering my chances on ever finding a person I can truly be myself and have that good connection. Unfortunately I’m one of those hopeless romantics lol.

    And oh man, I bet that was really nice to at least have that experience being with someone who was almost at your level! I think despite life being difficult at times, you get to have those kind of joyful experiences and fond memories that makes life bearable and you can look back at with a smile.

    Aaw, I'm sorry to hear that. I used to think that I'm too idealistic, expect too much of people and just a hopeless romantic too. But I kept to my core values and it felt like a force gravitated us towards each-other; it completely surprised us both. See there's the hopeless romantic speaking haha.

    You're absolutely right of course and those fond memories will stay with me forever. Even now when I'm 'over' the relationship and I can rationalise it (most of the times anyway haha), it truly was something special indeed. It's over now and the heartbreak literally almost killed me, but looking back, it was worth it - although in the midst of heartbreak I wished I had never met him, haha.

    I never thought I would feel that kind of a love in life either. I think a lot of people actively look for something like this, but I think when it's meant to happen there's some kind of a force (I can't explain it) that will bring them together. It's probably luck. The relationship may not last, but that's besides the point. I think that kind of love is eternal even if you never see the person again.

    Stay true to yourself and the right person will be drawn to you; we're still young. I wish you the purest of love; someone who makes you smile on the inside too.

    Absolutely!!! It’s better to have loved and lost to have never loved at all! Very beautiful words.

    You’re absolutely right. I think the moment we are true to ourselves, and we are just enjoying our life and are in a state of self-assurance and love is when the right person suddenly comes along.

    And thank you so much for the kind words! I wish you the same as well! Much love!

    You're very welcome:) and yes I completely agree.

    Those words by Alfred Lord Tennyson helped me get through the heartbreak...

    'Tis better to have loved and lost
    Than never to have loved at all."

    Thank you in return:)

    Never thought of it until now. I think it is how good I can make someone feel once they connect with me O.O

    My favorite quality about myself is my emotional honesty. Has it pros and cons and is probably the most unappreciated and misunderstood quality but is the thing that's quintessentially me. Another one is my ability to let people be themselves without judgment, almost to my own detriment. But I still think like this quality. I try my best to make everyone feel comfortable and not feel they have to twist themselves in knots to please me. I like it when people feel free to be themselves around me. My only issue with this is that people will take advantage of this, especially more dominant or overpowering personalities. If you don't set boundaries people will steamroll you and think they can behave anyway they want, and not be respectful, believing anything goes.

    Yea definitely people can be themselves but to set boundaries is not my thing and it's often too late before I let them know this won't go just coz I got high tolerance

    My determination to find the truth. It's my favorite because meaning and happiness seems to be the bi products of the pursuit.

    Two things: my perfection and my modesty :D

    I'm kidding. My intuition, I suppose.

    With all lower case letters, what were you chosen for? Many are called, but few are chosen.
