I Don't Want a Boyfriend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 58 People

    I'm just scared. I don't want to be like my mom.

    I don't want a boyfriend. Okay well, maybe, I do. A little bit. I just want to feel like someone is there for me or something. I don't know. I suck at this department. I'll be a hypocrite for saying that I don't have an 'ideal' guy. I actually do. My definition of an...

    If a potential 'Mr. Right' comes along,

    sure I'll give it a go. But I'm perfectly content, right now, by myself. Is that so bad?

    I Dunno If I Don't

    Umm....I don't know if I'm too much paranoid sometimes.   I don't want a BF,because I don't think I can afford that. L-bomb...? A boy I knew sent a message to me then called in the semi-midnight...I didn't even answered. What's more...I typed:"Dude,I'm sleeping now...

    Never Had One, But Saw The Carnage...

    While love appeals to many, and indeed is sometimes considered most important, romantic love is not for me. I''ll love my friends as friends, and my family as family, and the like; however, seeking a mate is something I hold no desire for. I have seen it hurt those close to me...

    Just Not For Me

    I just don't see myself with anyone. I'm not a pessimistic, but I'm not a romantic either. My aunt called a couple weeks ago, and she went "So, with anyone?" I reply no. She goes "Well you're looking though, but it'll take some time" Or something along those lines. I go "Eh, I'm...

    Im just starting to get things moving in my life and as much as I have thought that having a love interest might be nice, it's just not what I am looking for right now or for quite awhile. I have had my fair share of romantic attachments, I flirt with guys but I wouldn't be...
