    I feel like I cannot have a relationship

    anymore. I had very happy relationships in the past, I am 24 and was engaged twice, I am also still flattered by men's attention more often than not. As of right now, though, I feel like i am not entitled to my own feelings anymore, and I end up with very shallow connections...

    I'm turning 21 and I've never been in a

    relationship. Never dated, never had a boyfriend, nothing. I self sabotage. I 'jump ship' when there's any chance of something becoming serious. And at first I never really wondered why I was like that. I just accepted that that's who I am and what I do. But I've been thinking...

    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...

    My experience is weird ,

    I am in love with both of exes and not able to move on weird but true. Scared of new relationship. After meeting people for couple of times , I withdraw myself. It could be that I dont wanna get hurt no more but I still want to be loved.

    Yep. People would say "it's part of life,

    it's natural" but for people who are scared like me, don't understand. I'm not saying I don't want to love, I don't want to say I'm scared. But I am. It's stopping me from being able to do things. If I was to meet up with a male, I'd automatically start to think about that...

    In every relationship I've had,

    I've given everything. Literally everything I have to give. And was happy to do it. I can't explain how good it made me feel to be so invested in someone's happiness. It didn't matter their flaws and imperfections. I loved them. And I had a revelation tonight while I was driving...

    Im afraid of relationships

    because I've been hurt so much in the past but I like that I can talk to this special someone it's nice that we can just talk about anything and everything and have no worries about what we're doing because their are no labels

    Relationships are truly wonderful.

    When two people are genuinely in love it's truly something. However, when relationships end it sucks. For my experience it was a matter of my partner not being in tune with her feelings and feeling things were rushed. We no longer had anything in common. It didn't feel like that...

    I'm not scared just overly cautious.

    You just never know. That's the scary part. Disney movie relationships exist in Disney movies. In real life things happen in relationships. Things change and people change. Feelings can change as well. Even understanding all of this it somehow gets to me. They say you should use...

    relationships. I have commitment issues. I can find a guy I love and obsess over him but as soon as he gets close to me (like as a friend) or shows interest in me I loose all feelings because I'm scared of commitment and relationships. It sucks so bad, I'm scared I'll never...

    And the funny thing is.

    .. although I'm not interested in having a serious relationship I feel bad when I casually sleep with my best friend. I guess it's about me wanting to feel like someone actually cares. Because let's face it, nobody really cares about stuff that concern you unless it concerns them...

    I'm really scared of relationships,

    but I'm desperate for one. Just to feel that love and have someone to focus on. I hope one day it can happen, if I were religious I'd pray for it, but I'm not. I'm told that I value myself on my relationships. I invest my whole self into them... They become me and I'm consumed...

    I feel like I can't ever be in a relationship

    because my mind is back and forth between nothing and everything. I'm too scared to let anyone who has interest in me past friendship. Friendship I can do a relationship with one person terrifies me

    She took a deep breath

    and removed her bra and panties. Standing there before me fully nude, she trembled as I gazed upon her. She became self-conscious of the cellulite in her stomach, the stretch marks, what she thought of as sagging skin and breasts. But me? I saw an incredibly beautiful woman that...

    My thoughts then turned to the woman

    who had single-handedly brought my libido back from the brink of extinction. She gave rise to my nether regions by way of her sharp wit and penchant for profanity. She was the reason I woke up rearing to go; the object of my desire, the fuel for my fantasies. I dreamt of her...

    Why do so many men and women

    People ask me why I'm not in one,

    I say I don't want one but it's just that I'm scared. The people who I have trusted in the past have let me down. Also could be that I bore people cause I am terrible at conversations
