    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...

    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...

    2 days ago my 22 year old younger sister told

    me she decided to live with her bf. I was shocked. After a minute I asked her why. She said nothing, then we became quiet and I cried silently in the bathroom. We're very close that's why I became sad but i know also that I cried because there's a part of me that so envious...

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
