    Hoping Without Hope....

    My fear and insecurities get the best of me, they tear me apart and leave me broken time and time again. For I know I need love (and to be loved), it is what I yearn for and crave.... But for the life of me, I will never look for it or try to get it. I push people away...

    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.

    I'm sure many people feel this way,

    too many. However, I don't base this on an idea of self pity, or attention seeking. I never speak these feelings to other people, I never talk about it. I base the idea that I will be alone forever, on what has happened in my life thus far. I've gone through memories, analyzed...

    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...

    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. :(

    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...

    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 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.
