    End Of The Line

    I have been badly hurt by just about every friendship I have ever had.   I know that love is always a risk, but to me, it is fast becoming a risk not worth taking.   My dismal social life consists of my immediate family only.   I have no friends whatsoever.   I have made...

    I had my first kiss some weeks ago with a girl

    friend of mine. It was kind of a birthday present for me because she knew I desperately wanted to experience a real kiss as soon as possible, but the thought that I probably won't get such a kiss again in the near future makes me really sad... There are quite a lot of people...

    I'm 24 and i never had a boyfriend.

    I'm starting to think that no one will ever love me. I don't know what's the matter with me, I always had boy friends, but I guess that's all they want, my friendship. I'm tired of being alone all the time. I just want some one to share my day with.

    I hate to seem like some kind of sad sack here

    but my dad was emotionally not there so I feel like no guy will ever love me, let alone romantically. My only boyfriend didn't love me, he manipulated me and cheated on me. He chose sex with some other girl over sex with me. I'm a 19 year old virgin.
