    I Am Unwanted.

    I've felt this way my whole life.  Part of it is the fact that I've never felt good enough for any one person in my life.  I'm like a burden, and I don't know why.  It seems like there are people in my life who leave just as quickly as they enter, and I blame...

    I feel like I'm not important to a lot of

    people. I feel like I take up too much space. I feel like that maybe just maybe this world is not for me anymore. I make so many mistakes compared to the average human. I hurt so many people when I've hurt myself. I can't go even a night without crying myself to sleep. My family...

    I have always tried to make friends, and have never been successful. I'm never invited anywhere. Any friends I have ever made used me. And the few friends I do have that have stuck around I barely see. The only social life I have is online. And even they get sick of me. No one...

    Unnecessary Existance

    Someone said they feel like everyone would be better if they were gone.  Not me.  I don't think it matters if I'm here or if I'm not.  If I suddenly moved to Antarctica tomorrow, after a few weeks some people would notice my absence, but they'd soon get over it...

    I Feel Unwanted And Unappreciated

    I am 41 and some days I am ok and other days I am not ok. There were so many love stories and I felt excluded. Unwanted. Unadored. It brings me down. Men don't really look at me either and if they did, I didn't noticed them. I am ok looking. Small. Dress nice but my persona...

    Alone For Far Too Long

    For nearly 8 years, I've been going to college. Out of those nearly 8 full years, I can only recall just a handful of people that have become my friends. And these friends do not talk to me, approach me, or go out for lunch on a daily basis. They are the kind of people that just...

    This is what I feel every day.

    I want other people's acceptance so bad. It would be awesome. I want someone to accept me unconditionally. But maybe that sounds impossible. I need to learn to want myself, unconditionally.

    It seems like everyone

    and their mother has had sex when they were like 15, and it seems like sex all they care about. I'm more of an emotional guy and i'd rather be in love before i go anywhere near sex. It seems like no one else feels that way except for religious people, and I'm definitely not...

    When you realize he could have just about any

    girl he wants, and your probably not even in his "top 100" All you want is to give up, but you don't. You still tell him happy birthday in hopes of even just a smile from your long time friend.

    My Husband Looked At A Picture Of Me And Actually Said "eww" Tonight

    There has been many times during my marriage of 3yrs that I have felt unwanted. Tonight beats all of those nights. The hubby has one of his friends over and they're drinking so I guess his "true feelings" are easier to express. We've hit a dry patch sexually here lately and I've...

    It's The Little Things

    I hate myself because of it.

    It's not just that no guy likes me and stuff like that, though that is a part of it (the cheating and being used didn't really help either). But it's more that I don't feel that I matter to a single person on this Earth. I always try to be really nice and considerate. But that...

    who I'm pretty sure only wants me for sex. I want my first time to be with someone I've been dating for a while and I've told him that I like him, but he never said anything back. He's confusing the **** out of me. I want him so bad, but he won't make a move.
