    I'm Just Not Ready.

    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...

    I've Been Dysfunctional...

    I don't know where to start... I have craved having a boyfriend at certain times in my life, primarily because I wanted to "fit in" and be normal. However, when I find myself in relationships (which have always ended quickly), I compromise who I am in order to make the...

    THIS Is My Story...kind of

    In the beginning of 2005 I got divorced and started seeing someone new...he was a guy I'd known for 9 years.  We went to high school together and I'd always known he liked me.  Things started off amazingly...I was very much in love with him within 3 months and vice...

    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...

    I Have a Related Experience.

    titled "I do not want a boyfriend." I chuckled to myself upon seeing this group. Guess the "don't" is more popular than the "do not", huh? loobiesa, I formed mine first! Sigh. (it's okay, I have respect for individuality. Was it the logo?) My...

    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...

    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...

    Cannot Be Bothered

    Whilst I lust after guys, the idea of having a permanent person always there sort of freaks me out. I like knowing that I can do what I want when I want and without negotiation. The way I see it I have friends and as long as there are friends, I can have enough human company. I...

    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?
