I Am Afraid of Being Single Forever

    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...

    More and More I think I will be single forever.

    Being sngle it's not one thing that scares me a lot, because I like to think things happen when have to, but damn it. I never had someone in my life, while my friends had already had lots of relations , maybe something is wrong with me.

    Accepting My Fate

    I am all but resigned to never falling in love and having someone love me back. I have never had a relationship (age 32) and have never known the happiness that comes from being with someone - just the cold, hard emptiness that comes from forever having been alone. I have never...

    I don't know why the hell I decided trying

    online dating again was a good idea. Because, y'know, that worked out SO WELL the last time. ...and now I can't even sign up without feeling like I'm hiding an aspect of myself. Just... **** this. **** all of this. I'll just be a lonely bastard instead.

    I've spent a majority

    if my life single and have only been with a few men. None of my relationships have lasted very long because it's hard for me to meet guys who are on the same page as me. I'm still hoping that one day I will meet someone great who accepts me for me.

    I mean I know I won't be,

    or at least it's highly unlikely. I'm only 19, I have plenty of time left. But every time I start liking someone, I give up before anything starts. I'm afraid to get close to people I guess. Afraid of rejection. Afraid they'll tell people my secrets. When I start liking someone...

    Every time I find someone

    who makes my heart flutter I can't have her. She's taken, wants to be friends or what not. I might as well go and buy 4 or 5 dogs and live the rest of my life like that.

    Every year that passes I feel like there's

    something wrong when I still haven't been in a relationship. I know it's not the end of the world to be romantically alone, I just find it hard when it seems like everyone pushes the idea that you can't be happy unless you're in love.

    who truly loves me. I am afraid I will never find someone who doesn't just care about sex and looks. I want someone who I can have deep and meaningful conversations with. Someone I can trust. I want a relationship that isn't all physical.
