I Fall In Love With Damaged People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 177 People

    I feel inadequate in my attempts to convey

    myself to him. Even though I have a passion for writing, I can't seem to find the right words to tell him what I need. Furthermore, in his ignorance, he continues to hurt me with his coldness. I love him... Even worse, all the signs line up. So I think that there is only one...

    Lol. Lmao. Because society is wrong.

    The damaged are humane more often. The successes are moronic lemmings. Fifty / fifty for both groups dont exist. Humane can be successful. But those called damaged rarely are. Some damaged go evil. But more successes do than not. Worked mental health...

    Only The One- Now I Am The One Who Is Damaged...

    The one and only time I've ever fallen in love caused to my own self-destruction. She was manipulative, belittling a compulsive liar and just an alround toxic person. Needless to say: she was major bad news.Before I fell for her we were 'best friends' for three years before a...

    Not Intill Now

    I'm falling in love with a tortured soul. A intelligent minded man. This is also his downfall, his intelligence causes him to over-think at times. He ends up questioning himself, his purpose, his accomplishments, his true worth in this life. He tortures himself with his failures...

    If you're like that you have a big heart!

    Problem is it's a tough job to try mending or healing those people that have been hurt. The effort will pay off later in life.

    Damaged But Cute - Can I Survive?!?!?!

    What I didn't realize when I entered into this relationship was that he is damaged from his childhood. Once he said that - it kind of made me realize why I'm not 100% comfortable with him sometimes. He has serious trust issues and trust no one. He definitely sets the tone for our...

    Beautifully Damaged

    Call them the rebels, call them the bad-boys, call them the emos, call them the emotional wrecks, call them the psychos, call them whatever you like – they get me. There’s something about a “damaged” guy that just draws me. Without me even realising it, I become...

    Typical

    I don't know why. Maybe I just need to take care of people. Maybe people can read from my face that I understand heartbreak. Maybe, on some subconscious level, I attract tortured souls. I just know that I always seem to run into the damaged ones. Even my friends are never...

    Truly Damaged!

    Because of my dad I cannot trust men. I stay wary of all men that I meet. I feel as if they are all individually are hiding something. Whenever I get a little bit close with a guy I straight away back off, I feel like they are putting up a front just to get to me e.g. They are...
