I Am Scared About Being In Love

    Cautious

    I"m scared to fall for a guy and for him to love me back, only for him to find out something is wrong with me and then he wouldn't love me anymore. I guess that could also be "I'm scared of being hurt."

    All Good Things.........

    Must come to an end as the saying goes. I guess that's why being in love loving someone and having their love scares me. I'm always waiting for it to end so I never get fully invested so that way it's easier when it does happen. Almost like a business arrangement. I mean if we...

    Love Is The Other Obscene Four Letter Word

    Love has made me cry and hurt, so I just dismiss it as this amazing thing that makes you feel like you are high all the time. Those times are dead and buried. I used to be in love with love, but it has become a thing to fear. As much of a romantic I am, I can't still stop looking...

    What'S Lobe Got To Do With It?

    I want someone I'm comfortable and confident with, someone I trust with everything in my life and who is loyal. These are also what I hope for in return so I must ask what that L word has to do with it. If it happens great if not so be it

    Have ever been on that cloud in the sky?

    At that moment, between love and life,where nothing can be compared to the excitement and elated state of conciseness that you feel, you do not need food or sleep. You dance when you walk and you sing when you speak. If you are feeling this for the first time, you have no fear...

    I've always being scared of falling in love. I don't date much because I know because I know I might get hurt and so, whenever I'm in a relationship I shut down my emotions. This makes it much easier to walk away. But I don't want to. I want to put my heart out there but I don't...

    I see you everyday. We've become close.

    You know me inside out. We are truly friends. But why are my feelings getting so strong ? I think about you. I miss you when you're not around me. And I get that little feeling in my gut when you pull my chair closer to yours In class. What are these feelings ? I want to...

    Scared is such a drama word.

    More like... Hesitant. Not afraid to lose...but at the same time... I hate wasting time. I know who I want. And it sure sounds like he wants me too. But... I have this feeling I'm much more attached than he is. And I understand why. You know how... Sometimes you fall hard for...

    Things Always End

    Being in a relationship is hard.  I haven't been in an actual relationship since my freshman year of high school.  I'm a freshman in college now.  I hate not being able to trust people but at the same time to me it makes sense.  Why trust someone when you've...

    Love isn't scary, it's the part of opening yourself to another that's scary. Being vulnerable, intimate and exposing yourself to be hurt is what scares me.  I know the longer I wait and the more I close myself off...the harder it gets....

    Being Single And Realizing You Lost Someone You Could Have Had

    Being single sucks and it sucks even more when you come to realize too late that you let someone slip through your hands that you could have had. Then you always question yourself as I have been for the past 2 years why I didn't move on him when I had the chance. Hurts even more...
