    Pushing Myself Into A Corner

    I am still at the young age of 15. Yet at this point in time I have already manage to evaluate the world down to the very basics. I have looked at life so hard that hardly anything has any real meaning to me, life is honestly more of a hassle to me then an actual experience now...

    I Think I Might Be Meant To Be Alone

    I'll be 28 in about 2 weeks, and I feel like I'll always be alone. I go to the movies alone, I go rock climbing alone, I go scuba diving alone, I go out to eat alone, I go to the gym alone, basically I do everything alone. Maybe that's just how it's supposed to be.

    I Know Why I'm Alone.

    I have male friends interested in me, but I pick them apart to such a degree that they can't stand looking at themselves anymore. I tear them down into little details until they don't feel like humans but rather a chart on virtues and vices. Then, if that doesn't work I push...

    Why is loneliness so difficult?

    I go in cycles- days when I'm handling it, and at other times I feel really in pain and quite powerless to do anything about it. I have good friends but they are all in relationships or starting to have children. So they are not always free to meet up, and I feel sometimes...

    I spent the first tenty-three years of my life living with my mother. She was a single mom and because she had to work two jobs to support us I grew up alone. I had no siblings and for the four years my mom was with my stepfather, he took no interest in me. So I always felt like...

    I've Cursed Myself

    My father had a horrible temper.  He could make you feel lower than worm-slime with a simple tone of voice.  He also hit. To his credit, every time we got into it, he would leave me alone for a bit and then come and apologize to me.  I spent the majority of his...

    Pretending to be happy daily is exhausting.

    Being alone is not that scary as compared to being with someone who makes you feel alone.

    My Biggest Fear.

    My bigger fear is to die alone and no one to care about me. I am afraid that i will never find someone to love me and to care about me. I am not getting any younger anymore. I am already 27 years old and i fear i will be alone when i am 30 years old. :(

    Never Connecting...

    I am convinced that I will not find a person that shares enough in common to really become connected with me. If it isn't one thing, it is another. I'm not good looking enough, I'm too smart, I'm not laidback, I don't pay enough attention, and so on. It's exhausting trying to get...

    Three years ago, I was engaged to a guy

    I use to be afraid I'd be alone forever,

    because of how I am and my way of thinking. Now If I'm ever afraid of being alone forever it's because I do know if any woman would have sincere feeling for me.

    I feel the same way and it is a painful feeling.

    My heart aches from loneliness and the fact that girls never give me a chance or even look at me makes it that much worse. I really hope you find someone because I know the pain of being alone and it is not a good feeling.
