    Always Crushing, Never The Crush

    I was thinking about it today and realize that I always have a crush on a guy. I never had a guy crush on me. All the guys I crush on I always find out that they have girlfriends or don't like me.

    Or Rather, Afraid Of Letting Myself Be Truly Loved

    I just came to the realization: I am truly loved. And I don't think I'm afraid of never being truly loved.. I'm afraid of letting myself feel that. All of my life, I've been loved and left, loved and left, and it's made me believe that maybe I was never really loved at all. If...

    Different Types, All Bland

    To start off, I'd like to say that my life is missing a puzzle piece, if you will, that begins my story. I'm adopted. And that makes me wonder automatically what it was that made her give me up. My mind thinks it was painful at times and my mind thinks it might've been easy at...

    Never being loved for just me,

    raw, ordinary, not 'presh' not 'awesome'. Just me and my passions. Another dream catches the winds. And drifts... Its hard to keep up the front. It really is.

    Uncharacteristic

    It's hard for me to admit. I like to see myself as an independent type who needs no one else, but the truth is that I year for somebody to love me, even if it's just one person. And I'm terrified that it will never happen. I don't want to be on my own, living my own life, in my...

    problem. I mean, whenever there's someone I really like, and they say they love me back, there's always a voice in the back of my head saying: 'He doesn't really love you, he'll leave eventually' and it goes like this every single time. Don't get me wrong, I really want to...

    I'm afraid of dying a virgin.

    I'm afraid of dying without anyone to cry and miss me. I don't open to females. I'm not good enough. I haven't kissed a girl, seen a girl nude, been close to a girl in over two years when "she" took my heart and ran away with it. I still don't have it.

    All We Need Is Love

    When I was younger, I didn't believe in love at all. I feel the world we live in is too selfish. The last couple of years I realized love does exist. There are very few people in the world that truly know how to love someone completely. I know that I am capable of giving someone...
