I Am Afraid I Will Never Find Someone to Really Love Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,418 People

    “There are two basic motivating forces: fear

    and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot...

    I always knew it had a suspicion

    that Shane wasn't a good person from the start. I got with him no bc I really wanted to be with him but more bc I wanted someone to want me even if it were just sexual. I was so sick of being lonely when I got with him. I had been on multiple dates before I met him and none of...

    I'm Such An Idiot

    I got married when I was 23 years old, to a man who has never once in our time together told me he loves me.  I'm sitting here 20 years later trying to figure out why.  We have 2 great kids that I wouldn't trade the world for.  If I hadn't married this man, they...

    I'm afraid that will never find someone

    that clicks with me... Someone who can understand my train of thought. Someone that wants to take the time to know me and raise me up so I can do the same for them. Someone that won't shut me out and push me away as much as I do. Someone that will find his way into my...

    Should I Just Give Up?

    I am generally an optimistic guy, but as I enter yet another year alone I am on the verge of giving up hope of ever finding someone to share my life with. I don't know what the problem with me is, I am at a minimum an average looking guy, I make a decent wage, treat people...

    Everyone I meet that is a guy

    and I date usually just dates me to get over someone or just thinks I'm hot... I know I'm still young but even teenagers need to feel like they are loved not just by family or friends.

    I have so much baggage no one in their right

    I feel so stupid for falling

    for someone who sounded like he would move mountains for me only to wind up having my heart broken....all in one day, no less....I'm probably destined to be alone....and I'm scared.

    I baby shop for my cousins shower

    Sometimes It Takes Longer...

    or that is what I am telling myself. After 8 years of marriage, my husband and I parted ways, knowing that the future was uncertain but being lonely by myself was better than being alone in a twosome. Now I am 33, in strange city, far from family and with few acquaintances let...

    and waking up alone could may just be one of the hardest things to get over. It's been a long time since I've shared my bed with someone that I'm starting to think it will never happen again. I don't know what's wrong with me. No one is interested in me:( my biggest fear is I'll...

    Nobody Wants Me

    My love is not good enough. Any girl I have had a crush on. Any girl that's I've liked. Anyone I've loved .. or even wanted to love .. has made that perfectly clear. Nobody wants me. Nobody wants to touch me. Nobody .. my love isn't wanted. I'm not wanted. Oh of course, I've...

    My parents have a really bad relationship.

    I feel worthless. They had an arranged marriage. Mom is depressed. My dad treats her like crap. And she wants me to go through the same thing! I'm afraid I'll be like her when I grow up. Emotionally numb, cold, unloved. I will be like her. I hide away from everyone because my...

    Whenever I think about love,

    it's so hard for me to think that it could happen for me. That I don't really see it happening for me. I try to be hopeful but it's so hard when you're constantly surrounded by others who so easily find it and have it in their grasp. I don't know, it's just whenever I think...

    don't just love for the reason

    that you need someone beside you or to cuddle with or to brag about. love someone because you love her/him and that you wouldn't want it any other way. ;)

    Just Another Girl With Something To Say

    When everyone around you seems to be in relationships it's hard not to think ...what's wrong with me? What do these people have that I don't? At the risk of sounding like just another single girl complaining about how no one loves her, It's challenging to realise that you might...

    who I didn't love. The sad part is that because it didn't work out I was hopeless of ever finding someone I could genuinely fall in love with. Well I did. I fell in love with someone and I fell hard. Guess who's scrapping their knees trying to get back up? Welcome karma. I feel...

    So.. I almost dated a satanist.

    I didn't know until we hung out a few times. He ran away from his problems, from me, from his roommate and such. We just saw each other on Friday because his roommate invited me and my friends to their place to have some drinks. Long story short, he told me he wanted to ask me...

    Nothing Worthy Of Love

    I have been 'single' for over a year now and I finally allowed myself to truly open up and care about someone. I told him of my childhood, details I have not even told my therapist, I shared my desires, my dreams, my secrets. I allowed him to see me, to know me.....very few get...

    That real wholehearted kind of love.

    The kind where you are best friends. Respected at all times, even when arguing. I have never had that kind of love before. It was always conditional. Was given as long as expectations were met and taken away if they weren't. I question it's existence, could it be real...

    days. People always want something. And this of course dosen't just include romantic love. This includes friendship and family love as well.

    I married my first love at 21,

    although we were together for 22 yrs and the last 10 were very rocky. Left me empty inside. I have been in love a few times in my life and want that feeling again. Excited about life and can't wait to see him again.
