    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...

    Hell Knows

    There's this woman that I think would've been pretty great for me. We never see each other anymore. When we used to hang around each other I was perpetually confused. I'm very bad at reading women and I felt like I constantly got mixed signals. At times I was absolutely...

       I'm Lonely...

       I'm lonely but not really confused. I would just like to feel like I can be able to tell someone my deepest darkest secrets and feel loved. But doesn't everyone, wish that?

    Husband Divorcing Me Before We Get to Live Together

    Let's just say that there has been way too much drama in my life the last couple of years.  I had been married to a pretty nice guy for over 15 years, when I contacted my highschool sweetheart.  Should have just never done it. Well, I divorced my first hubby, then...

    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...

     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...

    I just met a girl this weekend.

    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...
