I Always Get My Hopes Up, and Than They Come Crashing Down

    Being as cliche as it is,

    I met this guy. We got along really well when in person - talking, laughing, flirting. People around me encouraged me and said it was obvious he was interested, but when I messaged him, he just didn't seem like it. One day we went to a bbq with other friends and a small group...

    Just when you thought he will stay,

    thats when he starts packing and leave you behind. It takes alot to trust people these days... maybe its time to just embrace the idea no one is meant to stay, because everybody gets tired of somebody..

    Well I notice that I always get guys

    who seem pathetic in the eyes of other people. Guys who feel left out and a bit bullied too. And when I show them compassion, they mistook it that I like them, and in order not to let them feel rejected or what, I try to play the game that I like them, and in fact try to...

    Always. I am so naive.

    I need to find someone that won't take advantage of my forgiving spirit and continuously manipulate me and let me down. OR I need to learn to stop getting my hopes up, or trusting that people will actually follow through. But that is pretty hard to do when you want so badly to...

    You Would Think I Would Learn

    After so many disappointments, you would think I would have learned my lesson by now...but no. I come to terms with the fact that it isn't going to happen, I start to feel better, then the opportunity presents itself. Instead of saying to myself, "you know it's not going to...

    Every time you sent a tex with a smile

    or a text with a kiss my hopes rose, every time you said you missed me I felt so close, it got to a point where you wanted to come home but as soon as you got here I was suddenly again alone, you went and come back how many times? My hope always rose to come crashing back down.

    I feel drawn to a man,

    I believe he's married though. It's terrible... I feel like a magnet.

    Whenever I go on a date I get my hopes up.

    That the guy is probably the one etc, but they turn out to be creeps, not interested in more or just want sex.

    I have been building up my emotions

    and work up the courage to ask girls in my past out on a date only to be rejected. I've been rejected so many times that I have stopped trying to even get a girlfriend. It really sucks to have your confidence shaken so many times

    I Have Been Getting Better.

    I think my worst flaw was that I trusted in people so much.  I had so much faith in people, no matter what they'd done to me. When someone told me that they were going to take me some place or buy me something I really wanted, I'd get so excited and wait. ...
