    I Don't Think This Is A Good Thing

    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 Become So Attached, And Always Get To Pay For It At Some Point

    When I get to know people, I take the time to really get to know their personality and all. But once I do, and still like what I see, I'm already pretty attached to them. I get so used to having the person in question around, and suddenly feel damn lonely when they're not there...

    I Wish I Didn't Feel This Way

    It stresses me out so much. My boyfriend and I of five years recently broke up because I cheated on him. We were in a long distance relationship and I met a guy that lived in the same city and things just happened between us. I didn't really think about my bf at the time and it...

    I am diagnosed with "anxious-preoccupied

    attachment disorder". It just means that i have high anxiety and low avoidant. When i get easily attached to a person, i will think negatively of myself, and positively of my partner. This caused my act to become unpredictable, critical, panicking and i will bring up trivial...

    I have mentioned previously

    that i have Anxious-preoccupied attachment disorder. I realized many people are not aware of different types of attachment. Just to be informative, i want to explained what it is. I came across it briefly in my psychology class. It simply means that each person have one of four...

    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...

    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...

    Trying But Failing

    It's interesting how a person changes continuously as they go through life. I have changed in many ways probably because of a mixture of age and experience. I used to become emotionally invested in people far too easily and too soon. My attachment would begin before I knew them...

    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."

    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...

    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.
