I Can't Fall In Love

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 71 People

    I've never truly relied on someone.

    I have never wanted help. I do believe in attractive people, I have even seen some. I have never loved any boyfriend I had. I have never even felt lust. I don't believe in love. I only believe in good experiences with others. I've had crushes, but there is not enough feelings...

    I'm asexual, but a hopeless romantic.

    I absolutely love the thought of falling head-over-heels in love with the right person. However, I just can't seem to do that. I've never really found out why, but there's several guys who I think are the right guy for me. Don't get me wrong. It's not that I don't like the guy...

    Water. Water Everywhere

    It's funny. I spent a lot of time complaining about the selection of guys around me. Now, I meet guys that are great... but I just can't seem to get into them. I think it's the comparison thing. I've already met the "guy of my dreams." I already know who I want to be...

    I Seem Rather Hopeless

    Not to be mistaken with 'I can't love'. I CAN love, but I cannot seem to fall IN love. Everywhere I go, there are people in love, people who've been together for years or getting married. When I ask them, they all say that the first time they fell in love was around their...

    Things Are Always Casual

    "I don't think you can make me love you." "Oh babe, just watch, and I'll destroy you." "I'm not even sure I like you. But, casual just ain't us anymore." One week. I cried. "But, baby are you satisfied?" "No one ever, has called me baby before." One week.I cried. "But...

    I Want To Fall In Love

    I have never fallen in love before. I have been confessed to before and had people interested but I have never feel like I wanted any relationship with them because I don't feel any thing and I really wish I can feel what it is to be in love but I don't understand how to. I can...

    I have crushes, but I quickly become bored with

    them and forget about them. The closest thing I've ever felt to loving someone romantically is obsessing over my favourite celebrity and wanting to marry them. XD

    As a child growing up I have had many crushes

    on girls, heck some felt like love and sexual desire. In the 12 grade I fell in love with a girl whom I repressed love for because we were so different. After i got over that. I never seemed to fall for any girl since then. Then now i have some kind of strong admiration or tiny...

    I Can't Fall In Love. But I Seem To Feed On It.

    I am bisexual. Mostly inclined on gay. 19 years old. And since I can remember I can't seem to fall in love. I have dated more people than I can't count with my fingers. Most fall in love.. Maybe its because to them I look vulnerable and they feel a need to protect me when they...

    I am a twenty something girl

    and I have never been in love. I just can't do it. It's like I stop caring about him after some time, they all become boring, they all love me but I loose all of the interest. Don't give me that you just need to find the right guy, I don't think there actually is the right guy...

    I Think I'm Incapable Of Loving

    I've fallen in love in the romantic way once, when I was 14. It never happened, but I knew it was love itself. I've had a crush once of few times when I was a child of course, but as I grew up I became more open towards people and comfortable around guys, I realize I feel numb...
