    I've been single too long I lost the magic

    touch I had when I was younger. I can barely say anything original anymore to get women interested in me. I read blogs, books, and other things to try better myself. Getting older is difficult to find someone. I can't seem to break the ice with girls these days. I'm not an...

    I'm always scared that people wouldn't like me

    when and I think it happening that way. I'm scared of making friends because all gets to leave after time and that makes me feel rejected. I wish I can just find a friend who wouldn't reject me and and accept me for who I really am.

    Not necessarily scared,

    but I definitely don't like it! It's hard to pick yourself up and bounce back again.

    I'm now 20 years old,

    single, no friends, no job and totally alone. I never used to mind but it's starting to really get to me lately. I push people away who get too close and I don't know why. I feel very uncomfortable when people tell me they like me or even love me and I run. I don't know why? Why...

    I have had too much rejection in the past,

    especially for my age; and none of it has been dating. I have absolutely, positively, 100% no chance with dating. So I am scared to even ask because I know the answers will be know. But just opportunities in general seem to close on me unless someone else helps me. I don't know...

    Which Is Why I Do the Rejecting First!

    I am not proud to say I have spent the past 27 years building up emotional walls all around me and I have still yet to figure out why I do this.  My childhood was very normal and I grew up in a loving home with two parents.  We were the picture of true suburban families...

    I am not one of those people

    who are good at getting to know someone. But to be honest, they don't want to get to know me back. I am always looking in the wrong places. I either get to know a dirty pig or someone who's ignorant and shallow. People always have a problem with me and reject me without saying...

    Always have been. And

    not only in intimate relationships but also in friendships. I jump from group to group of friends terrified that if the get to know me to well they will reject me. It's lonely.
