    I think it's one of those moments

    where you see everyone around you finding someone and you're here alone. I'm always wondering if someday i'll find someone who'll love me. I guess i'm not the kind of girl guys wants to be with.

    Trying to date in your late 20's early 30's is

    torture enough, but I swear it's even worse if you're not a dog person and you have no interest in having kids. I'm at an impasse in my life where I'm attracting men, just not the type I'm looking for. I wish there were more men out there who didn't want children...

    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...

    I have just been very unlucky at love

    but very lucky at sex. All my adult relationships including a marriage have been unsuccessful at best. I mentioned the sex because it has been part of the problem at times. I've always been able to get laid and at times that has kept me from even trying to be in a relationship...

    I have been on my own

    for 7 years now. The girl I liked was rushing into marriage which I wasn't ready for. Now I'm afraid there's no one out there for me who enjoys the same things as I do. I go kayaking. If I can't find the right one I'll be on my own forever & dateless. I like going to the movies...

    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...

    I feel this way everyday.

    It makes me sad when I see everyone around me so happy and in love. I am 23 and have never had a serious boyfriend. Never been loved romantically, or been in love. I am not awful person; quite the opposite, actually. I think I am a genuinely good person, but I am painfully shy...

    I'm a wonderful and beautiful woman.

    My friends question why I'm still single. I have so much love to give and I'm tired of being alone. It's been 5 years since I've been in a relationship and frankly, it's getting old. I yearn for someone to share their days with me. I even find myself randomly crying out of...

    No one really ever cares about me.

    I dunno how to react when someone shows interest in me, so I kind of just shut down when that happens. I'm used to being alone, or me being someone's listener, but sometimes I wonder what it's like to have someone that genuinely loves 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...

    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...

    I am not afraid i wont find anyone to love me.

    I chose to live my life to the fullest and just be here to help people in need. Plus finding someone to love you these day doesnt last half of the time, because not everyone is willing to work it out or cheat.
