    I am afraid of being single forever.

    I haven't had a very good track record of relationships, and people say the best indicator of future performance is past performance. I like being helpful. I like having people that care about me, and I like caring about people. I enjoy being the type of person that you can...

    I probably will be single forever.

    Who wants someone with 3 kids, 2 different dads, and all the bullshit in between. That's heavy baggage, so I understand. But it still sucks.

    The reason for me to be single is,

    I haven't found the right girl yet and maybe I'll never be able to find one. I'd met a girl online and we started talking, with time we developed feelings for each other but then she suddenly stopped talking and unfollowed me from everywhere we were in contact for two years. I...

    It is more like a social status

    than anything else. Everyone I know is in some kind of relationship. A majority of my friends and family are married with children. Some even have grandchildren. I have younger siblings the same way. Who the hell is going to want to be with a cripple?

    When you been in love with someone

    for so long you forget what it feels like to be single. When it all comes to an end you are constantly reminded that you are single and sometimes not by choice. Depending on how things end you may never want to venture down that road again. I'm not afraid I'll be single forever...

    It's crippling to know how long I haven't been

    in a relationship. I spend my quiet moments of thought fantasizing about finding someone who makes me happy. Then I remember my faults and feel a deep sorrow, and become overwhelmed with despair at believing that it isn't possible.

    I am 39 year old guy.

    I am a nice guy. Everyone tells me I am a great guy, but part of the reason I am still single is because I am shy. I know that is not the only reason but the truth is I have no idea why I am still single. I know I am not great looking guy, but I will say I okay looking. I may be...

    It's a new year and I want to not feel like

    things will never change. I am going to have a positive view upon myself and plan to be more social. I will have an acting class this year and go on a cruise as well. I want so bad to get out of this hole I have dug for myself that it could drive me insane.

    Lately I've been playing a few romance visual

    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.

    I just don't think anyone will ever accept me

    for who I am :/ People around me get into relationships so easily whilst I am always single. I seriously feel like giving up on the whole idea of dating sometimes.

    married? I haven't had a boyfriend in almost 3 years and no one seems to like me. Or at least, no one I like seem to like me back. To be honest, I'm not really the type of girl who goes out a lot. I prefer books than alcohols, music than drugs, anime than ****, and sensible...

    I haven't had the best track record

    The Intellectual

    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...

    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...

    Is something wrong with me?

    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.

    It seems like I'm just not good enough at times. But I'm over it. I won't settle just to feel whole. Breakups can be bad but they can teach you a lot. Fear of being single gets to me at times. I always wanted a wife and kids but under the right circumstances. I guess I won't...

    I do not know why I even bother with social

    What is the big deal?

    Women see me as either a hideous, repulsive and worthless piece of **** or a nice guy that cannot be bothered with. No woman has seen me either as a potential mate and provider or as a sexual fantasy. I might as well put a bullet through my head.

    I just don't even know how to approach guys.

    All of the guys that approach me turn out to be only interested in sex and I'm not gonna be in a relationship where it's all about sex. So I guess I'll be alone forever.

    I really want a life-partner. I would even accept a hetero-life-partner at this point, and just agree to be lifelong friends. I have no inclination towards being gay - I have no issues with others making that choice, but it just isn't an option for me. But, is there really...
