    It is quite interesting

    that we often aspire to link ourselves with others which at first seem so receptive but once becoming attach are so far away and unobtainable. It is very sad.

    All of the people I have become attached to

    since my girlfriend left me have rejected me. Mostly they find the distance between us to be too much to handle, which is their prerogative, but it means that all the people I find interesting and compelling do not feel equally strongly about me. I just wish someone would find...

    I always say I'm over you.

    I don't want to talk to you anymore, but I still come back asking for your attention. Time after time hoping your give me a lil bit more then a few words, and have me wanting more. I slowly get over you and we don't talk for awhile. Then out of nowhere you message me and I feel...

    I wouldn't say I'm attracted to people I can't

    have. I fall in love with a guy name Leo, but with my depression and stupidity. I regret that I pushed him away. I regret not telling him I loved him like he loved me. It's torture to see him with someone else. But I guess... If he's happy.. I'll be happy.. Someday, when I find...

    Straight guys... There have been those with the

    personalities that I fall in love with... but it'd be forbidden for them to know how I felt about them.... I just have to let go and move on

    I'm always getting crushes on my husband's

    friends. It doesn't help that he basically ignores me lately. I'm always wanting to be around whenever his friends are over, so i can flirt with them, but i feel like it's pointless.

    I saw her again. She's

    so beautiful. I mean, she seems so perfect. At least for me. But still, there's a zero chance for us to be together.

    Tears run like a waterfall down the inside of

    It's so weird like, when you have a crush on

    someone and you feel like he will never notice you but then one day, *poof* he suddenly noticed you and then he'll tell you that he likes you which takes away the /challenge/ and sparks and **** you felt when you like him lol suddenly you don't give a f-ck about him anymore...

    Aren't we all? I think this is somewhat a part

    of human nature. There's a fascination with going after things that we subconsciously know we can't have.

    and the girls at school all go around looking really HOT! I wish I could have a girlfriend but I'm not allowed to. My mommy and big sister keep a really close watch over me and I'm allowed to have girls as friends (and actually most of my friends are girls) but never allowed to...

    Have you ever thought

    that your life is a big wonder of why? Like why do I like her or him, why this, why that? Is it cause we're to blind that the people we like are also a bunch of whys? I've been attracted to a lot of people that I know I can date or have so WHY do I even bother? Is it cause I don...

    Well

    I think the name of the group summarizes quite well the plight that the members go through.  I, too, find that I am attracted to those that would either never give me a second thought, would be completely incompatible with me once I got to know them, are outside of a...

    because I want him to move on. Of course I'm still into him it's just too complicated right now. I feel so sad about it though. I know it's for the best.

    I keep everyone at a safe distance.

    I can open myself up to a point. I see so many faces all around me and yet a feel solitude. It's not always melancholy either, actually it's normally quite serene. It seems that those that I have found that shatter that preference for solitude are not meant for me. The internal...

    Why is it that when I perceive someone to be

    attractive, I'm immediately intimidated? And instinctively feel immensely inferior?

    The most recent one is

    because she lives on the other side of the country. Met her in a class in California. Literally love at first sight. Then I tried to keep my self smiling and under control for the rest of the class when she said she lives in NYC. Worse part is, I think she kind of liked me too...

    i am attracted to what I can't have.

    Be they fictional, in a relationship or homosexual. However, I only seem to attract bigger men, creeps, rednecks, and lazy sorts. Of course not all of whom I'm attracted to are unavailable, I just don't trust myself or anyone for that matter.

    I care about physical appearance too much

    but i am an ugly person. I always attract to very handsome guys but deep down i know that they are out of my league. I can not love an ordinary look. Sometimes i feel like i am the most beautiful woman who trap in ugliest body.
