    I spent so long telling myself

    that being alone would be okay because there wouldn't be anyone to hurt me anymore. But, I've come to realize that the loneliness would hurt me.

    I think deep down I'm just a hopeless romantic.

    I love romantic comedies and books. My heart skips a beat when I read a book about two people falling in love. I want that. I lack a lot of self confidence. I feel so self conscious, and awkward, and unattractive at times. I'm just waiting for some awesome guy to see through to...

    I have finally begun to not be

    so shy, yet it seems people reject me and I go back to my corner of loneliness. I will do (almost) anything to please someone. Just please do not leave me alone.

    How do i stop being afraid?

    I am afraid that I'll end up alone because... I have never been in a romantic relationship; there was one I got infatuated with but since I kept on pushing him away, he eventually backed down. I see family members who are leading a single life (the other got married in the end...

    I don't know. I feel expendable,

    and it's honestly one of the most hopeless things I've ever felt. My life has just been a painful cycle of lows and highs; ups and downs. It is just this pattern that recurs and recurs, scraping away at any semblance of self-worth I harbor each time I come crashing down. Each...

    I Am Afraid That I'll End Up Alone.

    I am afraid that I'll end up alone. I'm 18, I know I'm still a young adult, but of course I can't quite stop thinking about my future, if how am I going to be or something. I have never dated or kissed anyone yet. I have never had a boyfriend. I'm scared if ever I'll enter into...

    I used to be afraid of being alone

    but I realise you have to be happy with your lot and being alone because being in a relationship will not bring long lasting love and the happiness you seek if you dont. we come into this world alone and we leave it alone.

    i think most teenagers

    and many young adults feel like they'll end up alone forever. Its so bad that i literally cant imagine anyone being with me, i get compliments and stuff but thats about it. Nobodys ever tried to prove their love for me, and it sucks. Oh well #LonelyForever

    Have him to understand me. Someone to stay up with at night, since I never sleep. Someone who makes me forget the world I live in. I've meet a great deal of people but they always find a way to make me feel detached from them. I'm ready to settle down and be all for my mate...

    Sometimes I am so lonely

    and so scared of being alone it feels like I can't breathe. It feels like I watch everyone else being together and happy but I'm stuck on the other side of the fence and its too high for me to climb but there is nothing I can do about it.

    Or that I'll end up in a one way relationship

    because the other person feels sorry for me or they're just using me. I just want someone to feel the way i do about them and have no confusions or doubts about it.
