    My heart seems to never give up on taking

    chances, it jumps on board too fast, ruins everything then comes back in pain, yet still optimistic.

    But trying not to anymore.

    After someone who was so close and important to me left and never looked back, I don't think I want to open up to people anymore. People come and they go. I don't know how it is so easy for people to leave, because I'm still stuck here, waiting and wondering. I don't want anyone...

    I have been dodging EP

    and this seems to work well so far. You see the problem is that I attach myself to people very quickly. I am working on this for now so I would rather keep my distance. I appreciate the few friendships I have already created that is why I would rather stay away than smother them...

    Does this make sense?

    A girl says that I'm not her type because I'm too nice and too genuine, I can't begin to understand why that would be a problem? I imagine that's what most girls would want, a guy that is nice.

    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.

    Constantly I am thinking

    that I am connecting with someone because we share emotions. Yet with similar emotions, they don't feel the same about me as I do about them. Whether it be friendly or something more.

    I easily get attached to people .

    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

    I try not to do that anymore,

    because I usually end up getting hurt when they leave. So I have to work on not becoming attached too quickly and let things develop slowly.

    This may and probably will sound messed up,

    so here it goes. I get attached easily and I can easily detach myself. It may not even have anything to do with the person but it's like protection for myself. I don't want to end up completely messed up in the end so I figure I'll beat you to it.

    One More Try

    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...

    The Unavoidable Connection

    That's why I don't let many people get close to

    me. People just leave without saying goodbye. People leave without caring about you. They leave when you are starting to feel something for them. You start liking them. You start falling in love with them. You start loving them. And you end up missing them. And you end up...

    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...

    Most sufferings come from attachments.

    That's why I always remind myself: this, too, shall end. No longer will I allow me to cling onto the moments but enjoy them while I can. And appreciate it at the end.

    I suppose, I sabotage every possibility

    for friendship, by being to eager. Living with social anxiety, it is already quite difficult to make friends. As soon as someone shows the slightest interest in me, I think "Fxck ya, they're going to be my best friend for life." Unfortunately, things don't work out that way...

    Do you ever read people's stories

    and never talk to them, but feel a connection? Just go, yep, I know how you feel. I'm, most of the time, too shy to talk to people anywhere but for some reason, just reading stories makes me feel close to people and connected. I'm not sure I actually want to talk to any of the...

    Its so easy for me to get emotionally attached

    to someone and it could even be someone who doesn't feel the same for me. The sad thing about getting attached too easy is that in the end...I am the one who ends up getting hurt a lot more than normal.

    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...

    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.

    that's why I get hurt so much. This is one quality I'd love to get rid of.
