    I'm Lonely

    I am secretly a lonely person. I don't like to be alone. I wish I had more friends and I did things for them! I wish I were outside with the bunnies and someplace fun where the sun was warm and the grass grew luscious. I wish I could turn the clocks of time back when I was in...

    and love from boys. I've never been in a relationship and boys have always ignored me, i dont even have guy friends! But i've always loved cuddling and the thought of falling asleep in a guy's arms. Last night I found this site called "Pillow talk audio" where people (mostly...

    Is There Anyone Out There?

    I have often thought about this. Why can it be so easy for others and so hard for me? What is normal? Being in your 40s and never had a girlfriend and wanting to connect with someone very much,is this normal? There is longing for love and affection,which never comes. What is...

    Isolated

    I can't find anyone. I haven't had a date in almost a year. I have no idea how to meet people. I have no idea how to speak to people. Things are really hard and it would be nice to find someone who would make it seem less so. I sleep wrapped up in my sheets because I don't like...

    I am too sensitive and too emotional.

    I care about people too much and I have so much emotions that I cannot control. I am a guy so I always get told to 'be a man' since most people expect men to be tough and confident. Never cry and positive all the time. Sadly, I don't have any of those qualities no more because...

    I used to believe that I'm a strong person.

    That every time I screw up, there's always another round to make up for past mistakes. However, before I know it, I keep on finding myself still trapped in quicksand. I don't even know where to begin with. Everything that's just been happening to me seems like, there's nothing...

    I all of a sudden just feel sad

    and hurt. it's not depression, it's like a realization. like when you know there is going to be a storm tonight, but its easy to ignore it in the sunny warm day. I wonder will it pass quickly or hang on. will I allow it to pass or will I hang on.

    I am starting to give up on life.

    Each day I grow emotionally weaker and weaker. Every crush that I have ever has ended up in failure which makes me think that I'm a failure. I have no hope in myself anymore. Whenever I buildup confidence to talk to a girl that I like, it just gets shot right back down because I...

    I am so lonely today.

    Yeah I admit it.. But i don't feel like having conversation....with someone. I'm emotionally exausted. Maybe small talk helps me get through day. Relationships is hard work. i'm tired of keeping them sometimes... But that's life...i guess. Well,thanks for hearing.

    Me and my boyfriend broke up this morning.

    I was in shock as I didn't see it coming, I had an emotional breakdown at school and couldn't help it but to cry. He was everything I had. I wish I could go back in time and fix it... I can't stop crying. One part of me loves him but the other part hates him. He broke my heart...
