I Get Attached Too Easily

    Trust Issues

    I have pretty bad trust issues, but my 'getting attached to people' is worse. I dont like letting people into my life, but once they are in, its hard letting go. And once i tell them about my personal problems, its almost impossible to let go. I do almost anything to make them...

    The main reason why I'm scared to meet new

    people is cause I get attached so easily. My hopes go up so quickly. And I develop feelings for them within minutes. And then if things don't work, I just end up disappointed, and with my stupid feelings. I don't know why I do that. I guess I just have so much to give and I...

    I really do and I don't like how I get feeling

    that I have a chance with that person. I wish I don't have this problem unless it's a family member or a close friend. :/

    First thing you should know about me: I hate

    myself. EVERYTHING about myself. This led to me cutting and drinking. I haven't cut in about a year and I haven't drank in a month. I want to get better... But I digress. Every girlfriend I have had has eventually learned that they could just walk all over me, because I would do...

    Sucker

    I'm likely to fall for any good looking guy who shows an interest in me. I'll be totally hooked until it all goes wrong, and then after a bit of moping around the whole process will repeat again. Does this happen to anyone else?

    Yeah it can backfire.

    I am extremely shy and don't know how to deal with humans. When someone talks to me and keep talking to me because they like to means a lot but emotions happen and I go all crazy. I just want to avoid people

    One Of My Biggest Problems

    I get attached to people too easily and the end is always the same: me getting hurt. I ask myself why. And it's simple really. When it comes to the point where i love someone as a friend or maybe in love i will do anything to try and make this person happy but the reality is that...

    Attached, obsessed, infatuated.

    Too easily I find myself growing attached to people. Only ever those who I feel a connection with, or have a lot of things in common with. Sometimes I wonder if it may be because I've not had any social interaction for a long, long time. I'm practically obsessed with finding a...

    Have you ever just liked someone

    so much? I really thought he liked me back. We would text all the time and as I was getting more and more attached to this person he tells me he likes another girl. When he told me that all I felt was numb. Has anyone else ever had this kind of experience? Tell me about it.

    And I know it so I keep people at a distance

    because I am just too afraid of being hurt so badly again. I know that it will make it hard for people to get to know me but I find it hard to trust. I will just be wondeing when they might decide to walk out of my life and keeping my guard up is truly the only way to prevent...

    all of them are online (like all 3 of them lol) because I have trouble talking to girls, i either come off as really awkward or really obnoxious. I got really close with one of them and I we would talk non stop, it got to the point where I was waking up excited to see the...

    that sort of attention in forever and as soon as I get it I have this weird yearning for it and then it becomes addicting and I will get super attached and it doesn't really end well because then the one I'd be getting super attached to would be like 'woah we just met' like yeah...

    It's probably one of my biggest downfalls.

    I care about people too much, and they don't care about me enough. I never seem to learn and keep getting attached anyway.

    I've noticed that I get attached to people very quickly. Not only in relationships but in friendships also. I miss people way to often and it makes me sad. I guess the worst part about it is that I feel this way about people and I know they don't feel the same towards me. Like...

    Always End Up Getting Hurt

    I don't easily forget people that has meant something to me, good or bad. Even if I barely know this person, if he or she has made me smile, it takes a lot for me to forget him/her. Then there's people I would say that I know pretty good, people I have opened up to and shared my...

    I get frustrated if we don't talk or spend time together. Sometimes I have to take a step back and realize that the other person has a life too. I just get so used to having that person in my life

    Love Starved

    I think the main reason why I get attached so easily is because I have a hard time genuinely connecting with people, so when I do, I feel a huge pull towards them. This is especially true about guys. Around most people I tend to doubt myself and clam up. When I meet someone who...

    I have a friend that I'm kinda too attached to,

    but she's not attached to me, it's kinda a one side thing, this person can make my day or ruin it, but now she got close to someone else and I feel like I need to detach myself from her, but at the same time I don't want to lose her, what can I do?

    I don't connect with people often, and usually when I do it's online. But when I find someone I can really talk to and get to know, I fall fast and hard. This, of course sets me up for heartbreak. But I can't seem to stop. Maybe, it's because I'm starving for understanding and...

    For as long as I can remember,
