    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’m afraid to remain single forever… I am

    NGSB (no boyfriend since birth) which means I haven’t had any boyfriend in my entire life. I always fall in love with the wrong people, guys who don’t or will never love me back… I always thought that I was different. I refuse to make a commitment with anyone else; I...

    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.

    I haven't had the best track record

    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

    I am totally afraid of being single,

    forever...for once I thought that being in a relationship and marriage was a fantasy for me as I really cant imagine what life would be when I am in a relationship. I am coming to end of 20s and I wish I could get into a real relationship at least once before entering my 30s.

    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.
