    I Just Cant Do Them

    I can't cope when I'm in a relationship, I like my freedom and I feel suffocated when I'm with someone. I can't trust people, and I can't let them in on my feelings or my weaknesses, so there's always a barrier between me and the person I'm with. The thought of...

    I have heard of this guy "J" through my friends.

    He's a playboy, outrageously insensitive to girls' feelings. But there is something mysterious about him ppl say. The way he sweeps girls off their feet. That makes me find him attractive. Slowly I've developed this liking for him, though in a fantasy world. But I've never...

    Don't get me wrong, I love relationships.

    I just hate what almost always happens. Them betraying you or leaving you. They claim to "love" you, but it is all just superficial. They take what they want and they leave.

    When you love someone they become a part of you.

    Maybe thats why it hurts so much when you lose someone you love.

    Too many bad experiences.

    After my last breakup I finally managed to put on a tough exterior. An "I don't give a ****" attitude. And I had almost convinced myself that I'll be okay if I'm alone forever. The truth is, I'm a relationship person and always will be. I crave being loved and appreciated, and I...

    I'm scared of the end, I'm scared of judgement. I'm not even a good person by myself, and sharing myself with someone wouldn't make me any stronger.

    Mainly because I end up getting in long term

    committed, monogamous relationships with the wrong people and for too long because I have an innate desire to partner up!!! Either that or I'm single for a long time. Annoying.

    The guys I know don't understand what the "no" means. And I'm so tired if saying it more that once. My brother's friend started talking to me my freshman year. But instead of asking me out, he asked me if he would ever get to "hit it". I said no. But he thought we could still be...

    I'm terrified of monogamy.

    I have no problem being faithful and loyal. It's the idea of giving you're all to somebody and never fully knowing their true intentions is terrifying.
