    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...

    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."

    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.....

    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....

    I Almost Don'T Believe In Love..

    When I was little my dad left me and my mom, that was the worst day of my life. I'm not saying my mom doesn't love me, or that people don't have it worse off than me, because they do. What I'm saying is to me losing my dad was the worst thing that could ever have happened to 5...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
