    I had a great friend,

    he was so good to me when I was suffering from anxiety! Over six months ago he started seeing someone! We could always be honest with each other, and I told him I was a bit jealous, but very happy for him! I had started seeing someone too! We always said we'd be friends! Then...

    Why Do I Do This?

    I guess it's because I've never been very close to anyone so whenever I am able to let my guard down around someone I'm attached to them, they tend to be all I think about. a couple days ago I got a compliment from a girl, she told me I was attractive, no ones ever told me that...

    I Really Really Wish Otherwise.

    It's embarassing to even admit it. I guess it's because I am kind of needy. I mean, if someone messages me one day and chats for a long time via internet or phone and if they don't do the same the next day, I panic. I actually frigging panic. Gad, I can't believe I actually do...

    Scared Of What'S Outside...

    I guess you can say that things get hard for me. I don't like meeting new people as much, I'm not open anymore because I'm afraid what's behind the walls that I've built. Do you ever get afraid of what's behind a certain door, let's say you're in a house. You've never opened...

    I Like You . . I had this guy on my friends'

    list since last year. He would always check-up on me from time-to-time [I'm not sure he liked me here]. We started to talk a lot after my ex-boyfriend broke-up with me at the begging of August. He gave me a lot of advice to help me move quick. After a while, I told him that I...

    I become emotionally attached to anything way

    too easily. I was playing Minecraft with my fiancé the other day. Long story short, I tamed a wolf (named him and everything) and after about half an hour he died and I must have cried for at least an hour.

    Why Does It Happen?

    I'm trying to find a reason for why I become so emotionally attached to people. I wish there was one event in my life that I could point a finger at and say, "That's it! That's the reason I am so screwed up!" But it's not that easy. And what makes me feel even worse is that...

    I scared people because of this. And I often got hurt because of this. Is being emotionally attached to someone a bad thing to do? Well, I think so. Now, my friends are slowly drifting away from me and one of them admitted that I scare him. Is this really wrong? But, I can't help...

    I get emotionally attached to boys easily.

    It sucks so hard. Some people think that a kiss on the lips is nothing but to me, once you kiss me and not talk to me... I will mope around about you for weeks till the next guy comes along and kisses me.

    Why do I become emotionally attached to guys

    too soon/too easily or not at all? I've tried and tried to not be that way, but that seems to be the only way I fall for guys. If I don't get stricken with a guy right away, he seems to fall in a place where he is off limits to me and I can no longer think of him "in that way."
