    This person in particular make me feel like no

    matter what I do, I will never be good enough for her affection. I think that both of our past relationships have led us to not know how to love anymore. It's gotten to the point where I don't think I belong with anyone and I'm a lost cause. Now I'm not talking to her because I...

    I know I'm not ready

    but I want one. I've already had people ask me to be in one but I know I'm not ready. I'm too young,too immature,too scared,and too cautious to dive right in. Most boys drop me like a rock when they find out my relationship status.it sucks.Well if they really liked me they...

    Sometimes I have that moment

    when I think to myself, "It would be nice to be in a relationship eventually" and I think about it for a good minute or two and then ask myself "Oh my God what are you thinking? Like you could handle an adult relationship".

    So there's this guy I'm dating that's unlike

    most guys I've dated in the past. He actually fancies me! How do I know this? He didn't invite me to his house on the first and second date.. Apart from that he seems really genuine, funny, dark, handsome except for the tall bit but we are the same height,at least he isn't...

    Never thought I'd post here.

    Hurray for insight, recovery and healing ! I had an "aha" moment today as I started feeling all *this*...just a sense of not feeling ready ...like I am four years away from the olympics and I'm still in training camp. I have been feeling "stuck" for awhile...trying to get past...

    I wouldn't wish myself on anyone.

    I have nothing to give.

    The thoughts are just like,

    "what am i going to do in a relationship? If I were in one,, it would be totally unfair to my girlfriend because I would be so bad at it.. I don't know how to commit, and I can be a bit slightly annoying. I don't have much words to say, I don't want to be her burden"

    I Want A Relationship

    But I know that I am not ready.  I am too damaged to be in a healthy relationship with someone. I first need to fix myself before I get in a relationship.  I need to be more independent.  Plus the person that I want to be in a relationship with isnt ready either...

    I seriously wouldn't know what to do to be

    quite honest xD I think I'm to emotionally attached to my fridge, Xbox and to music! If it was a irl relationship thing I would just want to hug all the time and play xbox or PS3 with them! And internet relationships never last because I'm to awkward to say anything and I...

    Right now, again, love

    for the third time in less than 365 days? This is what I want, but no it isn't. Love changes me. Maybe it makes me happier and maybe it can sometimes be a good thing, but in the end I'm just going to get crushed again and right after it takes over my life once more. Right now I...

    The Truth Stinks

    The Truth is I don't think I am ready for a relationship. I thought I was, but maybe I'm not. I have had a few "kiddy relationships" and a few very close calls, but not actually a true relationship. I had a rough childhood, however I found that as time went by, things got better...

    After my last GF dumped me I feel like

    something inside me broke. I've always been the shy kind of guy but lately I've been more shy and prone to avoid social interaction. I don't feel sad about breaking up anymore but lately I started to simply not stand people I guess that makes me kind of a jerk but I prefer to...
