I Am Lonely and Confused

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 298 People

    I just met a girl this weekend.

    ... She was truly beautiful. We really hit it off and I am now talking to her.... But all I want to do is hold her in my arms. I have never felt this way about a girl before.

    Damn These Human Emotions...

    I feel like a vegetable.

    Vegetables who are there to be eaten and finished. That's how I feel. My life has no direction right now. I am known as a happy and gay person so I can't even tell people how sad I am. I don't want to tell my friends and family about what I am going through. I don't want to be...

    Everyone's Lonely.

    So I don't have time to be "lonely"  But sometimes I've just got to sit down and feel sorry for myself, that I want someone there. I guess it's my teenage years that just wants a relationship even if it hurts her in the end.       Comment...

    Whereabouts

     We're all lonely souls. My loneliness today won't get fooled by any romantically paranoid justification. I'm not blaming anyone in particular for this solitude. I believe people that suffer from loneliness can be very caring people ;  paradoxically someone that is...

    My Fate??

    It seems loneliness is something that I have been destined to endure since my birth.  I have never really had any close friends, only friends in certain situations, but never anyone to call when I am lonely, bored or feeling low.  "A" works, all the...

    Confusion

    I guess you really didn't care about me. You say you do then you leave when I'm at my lowest. You will wait for me to build myself back up and then come back and ditch when I crash again. It's like a cycle. Gah I love you and that's what is holding me back from letting go. What's...

    It's cold outside and I'm laying in bed trying

    to stay warm. Images of you smiling and looking into my eyes pop into my head. Tears start run down my face and stinging my cheeks. I miss the warm touch of your hand, those comforting hugs, and the way your soft lips touched mine. Most of all I just miss "YOU" I love you...
