    I'm Scared

    I left a few groups about this some months ago. Probably I thought it would really be true, maybe I just wanted it to be true. But it ain't. I'm so scared. I don't know if I could handle a relationship. Never in my life did I have a boyfriend. Maybe that's the reason why I'm so...

    Afraid and afraid, I don't know about that.

    I guess I sort of feel inadequate for a relationship at the moment. Honestly don't have a lot to offer as far as security goes. I'm low on funds, probably have to move around a lot in the unforseeable future and I'm in horrible shape. Planning to establish my self better at some...

    I'M Scared...

    Whenever I tell people I don't want to fall in love, they give me this look- like I'm crazy. And I guess it makes sense, since I am a HUGE girly girl (Manicures, pedicures, hair, make up, romantic comedies... The whole spiel XD) but really, I am terrified of falling in love. How...

    Love is a scary thing,

    it makes you wanna do anything for that person and I already have enough people that I love and care about. I'm honestly not sure how many more I can watch get hurt, I've never thought of having a limit but i'd be scared to know just how much I can take. I love everyone even if...

    Reset Emotions

    For the lack of better words, I was "into" my best friend when I was 15. Around the same time my parents got divorced (my father fell in love with a woman, but didn't get together with her). It took me about five years and a surrogate best friend that followed the first friend to...

    So, as I said on my past experience,

    I'm still heartbroken over my ex. It's been 5 months, almost 6 since we broke up and to be honest I know it's time to move on. I've met a lot of guys lately, but I end up finding details I don't like about them and end up pushing them away. Today, a good old friend of mine...

    Turned down my first date in a year

    because I'm just not feeling it. We met online and chatted for about a week before exchanging numbers. I warned him I'm not a big texter. So naturally I get texts all day, every day. While it's nice to be thought of, I hate feeling like I have to entertain somebody. It...

    That is why I am so detached.

    I fear a lot of things. Being hurt. It takes a lot of time to break down these walls I built inside my heart for me to fully open up to you physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is hard to trust someone.

    Losing Control

    It has nothing to do with love. It has to do with losing control. I have witnessed friends falling in love with the worse of them, and I can't bring myself to do that. I am afraid that I will lose control and will no longer be safe if I fall in love with somebody. That word...

    I Can't Fall In Love Again.

    I've lost all the mental and emotional capacity to do it. Although I'm only 22, I have been burned countless times. I have a daughter by a man who despises the ground I walk on and the air that I breathe (what was he doing with me? Don't know, you'd have to ask him). He made my...

    There is a guy that I have liked since elementary school. I liked him from the 5th to the 8th grade. I stopped thinking about him because he ended up going to a different high school than I. However, we always remained friends. I would go over to his house and hang out with him...

    I am afraid to fall in love again

    because I feel like it will always be a one sided love. It will always be me who falls in love deeper, it will always be me who cares more...and it will always be me who feels more pain.
