    Hard To Admit, But It Will Probably Never Happen

    Well, I am a smart girl and I see things as they are based on evidence, on experience. Having this clear vision helps me a lot in being successful in life. But it is also showing me that true love may never happen to me. I have met tons of people in many different places...

    Maybe It's Destiny

    I'm not happy.........I don't think I ever will be.My first love, possibly my true love...... is in love with someone else, and it's too late for me to express my feelings. I know I should've said something sooner. And even though I more than likely would've been rejected, at...

    IT'S Terrifing.....

     ~ To think that I may NEVER find true everlasting love. To never find someone to call my very own, who will love me, take care of me, be there through thick & thin. It's so terrifing to try to come to terms with that probability..... It makes me sad & lonely. I know...

    Oh God..

    I wonder if it's possible to be content with that idea. The way I see it is, that It's not so much that the love is missing in one's life, but the fact that one is without something others have. Basically it's not about having the true love, rather,  it's the fact that one...

    Still Have Not Found Her

    I am 35 years old and have one illegitimate child. I have not yet found the right one yet, and it seems like most females these days have issues that prevent them from having a successful relationship. I go into each situation with an open mind, but the girl finds some way to...

    Pffffffffffft

    A few months ago, I had said this to myself. I was sure I would never be loved the way I craved to be, resigned to the fact I would be alone forever. But it was when this happened that she found me, out of nowhere she came and swept me up in her beauty. I feel in love when...

    Let's Bring This Down To Earth

    If love is blind, and starts off as an attraction, a simple chemistry we feel when we meet one another, and love develops throughout the process of time, then compromise sets in because we get used to being with one another, and choose to be with a certain person, then I am...

    I Struggle With This Often.

    I have never been in a relationship. In fact, I don't even have any friends. But, this gives me a lot of time to observe. I watch so many relationships ending, breaking, people leaving each other. Someone having not been loyal, someone making that mistake. To hell, I had family...

    That's Not True

    I suppose I'm at an age where I'm trying to accept that I may never find true love, but I'm also second-guessing as to why I try to accept that. I've accepted no love for so long, why should I even worry about this thing called "true love"?  At this point, I'd be happy with...

    Reason Why?

    I don't think I'm good looking enough and I don't have the balls to go up to a woman and start and conversation so she could get to know me if she was the kind of woman to look past my looks.

    What Is true love?

      What is "true love"? What if your fear of being hurt again, keeps you from moving forward? How or where do you begin to find true love? When and if you do happen to find a person, how do you begin to trust someone, let alone love them? I don't think I've ever been "in love...
