    I've never had a boyfriend in my whole life.

    I even don't know why but i keep trying my best to get someone that I can be in love with for rest of my life. I'm not that pretty girl but in the way I am I think I'm cute enough. 😉😇😁😓⭐️👏

    I'm just wondering to myself

    if I'll even be happy when I eventually meet Mr Right because maybe this waiting has drained me so much that I won't appreciate it when I do eventually meet him

    Me, My Loneliness And I

    I'm 28 years old, single, of course! I don't actually quite remember when was the last time I've been in a long enough relationship, longest was about 2 months anyway. I live in a country where I hardly speak its language, and I'm surrounded by friends who are either married or...

    someone who would accept me....all my weird hobbies etc..... and the way I look..... And of course thanks to my timid personality it would be even harder >.< Gosh how I wish to meet someone who would like me the way I am..... Because I don't like parties, don't smoke, don't...

    and I like him but I want to push him away because I'm scared to get hurt and I only date other females.

    Not Good Enough...

    Actually, besides God Himself, being single for the rest of my life has got to be my second biggest fear ever. As a child, I was programmed like computer software to think that I was ugly. Which is ironic because I've felt like a robot ever since. No emotion, no sense of place...

    I think I'm incapable of a "normal"

    relationship . I'm either all or nothing . thid is the longest I've ever been "single." I friendzone people and downplay my feelings and the sad thing is I'm aware of it and nothing has changed.

    Well it's not so much a suspicion as it is a supportable fact: I will be alone until the 12th of never. (Forever) I won't even say that, just because I'm so certain of it, I've come to terms with it and it's 'not so bad'. Frankly it sucks. My life hasn't been much fun. It has...
