    I Am Jealous Of Couples In A Long Term Relationship

    I feel sick and bitter inside when i see couples that have loved each other for a long time. And i think the reason why i feel like that towards them is because i have never dated or had a girlfriend before, well i have had a few but they were extremely short term relationships...

    I am hurt whenever I see people in long term

    relationships because it's something I'm not sure I'll ever have. I don't fault others for their love but I'm not wrong in wanting it for myself too. My relationships are like a comet that always burn out. I wish someone would share their secret with me.

    I want to be in a long-term relationship,

    but at the same time I want to be alone for awhile, sit on tumblr for hours and not be bothered. I also want someone to really get to know me and love me but I also want to love myself.

    Long Term

    I didn't know how lucky I was till I split with my wife, she was up for anything between the 2 of us, each night I went to sleep with my arm round her breasts. Don't think I will meet the same again.

    Ugh to Singledom

    Being single has its perks, don't get me wrong.  However, it has begun to be completely miserable when going out with a group of friends that somehow managed to all be coupled off.  I mean, sure, there's the few stragglers of the group, but I (as one of the single...
