    I think relationships are important

    and essential, but finding a good fit is often an adventure in and if itself!

    I am so scared of men

    because of all I've been through, the other day a random guy tried to high five me and I thought he was going to hit me and I was never more afraid in my life.. I feel like if I ever get close to someone again I will die from the emotional pain of the breakup because right now...

    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...

    Welp, I can go ahead

    and cross another relationship out of the books. I'm so terrified of relationships but I catch myself in them often because I'm more terrified of the thought of being single. This last boyfriend could have easily been Prince Charming, but my relationship fear causes me to always...

    I am not ashamed to admit it.

    I am scared of relationships.It has been 3 years since break up and it still haunts me. I have trust issues.I am scared to emotionally invest in a new relationship because last one left me drained out, exhausted and heart broken. It's difficult for someone who gives all when in...

    I'm finally meeting my best friend.

    . I've known him for two years. He lives in another country.. And now the anxiety is kicking in.. I have two months. I've never been an insecure type.. But I've had recent weight gain because of birth control I had a bad reaction to. Now I'm uncomfortable in my own body, have...

    Not to get into it, but I'm the type of person

    to get too attached and when cut off I crumble into freaking pieces. After many horrible experiences, countless aches from the heart, and much consideration, I decided to say no relationships. I'm sorry, but some of you people are freaking crazy, or heartless. And honestly, if...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I wish i wasn't scared to love

    and would chose the right guys that can love me. I always chose the wrong ones because I know that I won't fall be attached and I can run away quickly. I make it so I can run for the exit and he most likely won't run after me. When guys are capable to love I run the opposite...

    like I have now, some of them talk to me to go on a date or meet somewhere but I'm so afraid to get hurt, because I fear some of them might have hidden intentions. I feel fragile. I don't feel like they're approaching me due my qualities, but just because I seem like an easy...

    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.

    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...

    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 wouldn't mind being in a relationship.

    I'm more afraid of the feeling of having so much to lose. Plus I've never been in a relationship before and anything that is new to me can be a bit scary sometimes. Kinda like when I first joined the JV basketball team in my High School days. I feared disappointing the team.

    And yet I just got in one.

    because I've seen fake ones more than I've seen real ones. Nobody is true anymore. I question if real love even exists. My now ex boyfriend cheated on me two weeks before Christmas and the year before that my other ex broke up with me the day before our 1 year. It's time like...

    Yes, my guard is up and shouldn't it be.

    It is hard to keep trust only to get hurt. It is hard to open up yourself to someone only for them to use that information to manipulate you and destroy you. It is hard to be lied to when you are blindly thinking that your partner has your back. It is hard to spend all of you to...
