    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.

    I have had several serious relationships.

    They have all seemed to end pretty badly. The only thing these guys have in common is me. Maybe I am the one with the problem, not them

    yea I've been thinking about this a lot.

    Maybe if I end up alone? But I love animals so much so I'll probably get a cat or a guinea pig or something that can keep me company. I love animals so much:) Hmm maybe I'll do end up alone, but I'm going to be happy. I'm not going to let my happiness depends on that, so if I...

    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.

    I feel inadequate for people

    that could have been friends or closer. My social anxiety then crushes any chance that they may be so. I fear that I'll end up being very lonely, very bitter and ultimately unmotivated to do anything. It's very hard to escape this sort of feeling.

    My standards a little high

    but I think they're reasonable and not at all shallow. But I'm just not a flirty type of girl and I get too worked up about it. Plus, there's a lot of guys I see that don't look good for me.

    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

    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.
