I Am Afraid That I'll End Up Alone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,446 People

    I don't expect anyone to ever join with someone

    like me forever, and the thought if romantic affairs makes me shudder, especially because of my phobia of touching other people. I just want a friend and right now, I feel just so lonely and empty. I read so many books about friendship, and love and how easy it is. It isn't.

    I have always been that one person to keep to

    herself. I have few friends who depend on me to get me through their problems, because I am apparently 'wise'. These few friends that I have, are slowly starting to slip away from me. Why? I have no idea. Is it because I'm bisexual? They've told me they don't care. Is it because...

    I've Noticed Eyes Glazing Over

    I find someone that I like and it seems like they like me and we start EPing each other daily and all of a sudden they're gone. What did I do wrong? Why does she run away screaming? Is it because I sometimes drool?

    I don't fit in anywhere,

    but here I felt accepted. In real life I'm the type that judges myself a lot and all because I can't accept the person I am. So as a result I crave for someone to fill that void for me, that insecurity. When I found someone I feel comfortable around I see them as family and...

    because I mess up any opportunities I've managed to get. Being shy and not very attractive didn't help me in school. I never had a date until I was 21 and I'm just 21 now. And that situation blew up in my face. Anyone I've liked never worked out because I was too afraid to speak...

    Well... I Shouldn't Worry, Really.

     I am really afraid that I'll end up alone. I mean, I've been in relationships, but it seems like all that my partners wanted was sex. Or pleasure of some sort. And I'm kind of weak, when it comes to saying no, so sometimes I just do what they ask. And I don't think that I'm...

    When I was really young I worried that I'd end up alone because I was awkward and unattractive. I guess the fear stuck with me. It doesn't scare me as bad as it used to. Being in a bad marriage has made me wonder if maybe being alone wouldn't be so bad, but the thought of it...

    Now More Than Ever

    When I was young I wondered if I'd end up alone and it was a bit scary. But ever scarier now is looking at growing old, and after 29 years of marriage what life would be like if something ever happened to my wife. That kind of loneliness is much scarier.
