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

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,366 People

    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...

    It's really hard to find genuine love these

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

    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.

    Since my last boyfriend died I thought a lot

    about if I was really in love or if he really loved me and I don't know. He wasn't always nice to me and he made me cry all the time. I just realized my current boyfriend won't be around for much longer so I think our relationship will end in the beginning of next year. He's...

    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...

    I am afraid, there will be no one ever to love

    me. All I find around me are people who abuse my kindness. People who use me. It was like that ever since I remember and that's why I am afraid that I will be alone.

    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 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...

    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...

    How can I explain this? I just...I feel like there's nothing especially special about me, or anything that will keep someone around. I feel like any guy who expresses interest in me will do it purely to get into my pants, and for no reason other than that. And then, once they get...

    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...

    before, until now. I've completed University, I have graduated, I am currently in need of a job/career. I suddenly regret pushing those guys away, the ones who asked to take me out but I never paid them any attention. I am a Christian too, and nowadays...well lets admit it, the...

    “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'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...

    Spent the last 6 years with someone

    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...

    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. ;)

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Today on my way out the door to work,

    I saw my dog looking at me in the window. His big Chihuahua eyes just glaring at me speaking a sadness to my heart. I started to kiss the air in his direction. I thought to myself, "Yea, I really need to find someone soon. This is getting a little pathetic."
