of course it is, I've had my heart broken a few times but the times I've had have been nothing but amazing.

You have to take risks in life otherwise you'll get nowhere.

I agree with Spugsy here, you have to try it, it helps you grow into who you are and is also great fun along the way (even though at the time losing may not seem like it)...

There is a time when you will realise that you have found your big love,only to find real life punch you in the face and show you how wrong you've been all this time...

For those who have never loved at all, they can't miss what they have never had. So if they have not had that experience, they could never long for it.

For those who have loved and lost...it is the heartbreak that is the soul destroying part...the feeling of being constantly nauseated and the world collapsing around oneself. But time heals. Next!
