I Get Too Attached to People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,547 People

    It's the middle of the night

    and the realization that everyone has gone on with their lives haunts me. It wasn't even so much that I didn't know this was the required outcome, I just got attached. Cavalier. That's the world I wanted. But then someone breaks through the facade. I got attached. I didn't...

    I Can Get Too Attached

    It's not often that I meet someone of the opposite sex who is amazing to me on every possible level. And when that happens (and lately, there were two guys, both married), it makes me sad. I mean, I get attached in my mind, feeling sad, like I won't ever meet anyone like them...

    I Can't Help It

    I'm not trying to change the world, just the little spot of it that I am borrowing until I die of natural causes with a smile on my face and peace in my heart.

    Saying Goodbye

    is so difficult for me. After I graduated from high school I literally cried for days once I realized I will never see any of my friends again (even though they all have Facebook and Skype). This is weird because I move around a lot. My parents used to move so much I had a new...

    There's something about

    when I like being with someone, not even in just a regular way, but when i feel some sort of chemistry with you or bond... it's like that scene in the move where the heaven gates open up and you hear the angels singing like ahhh! Lol I just get attached to you after that...

    I've met & talked to what seems like millions

    of guys, and none of it has ever worked out or ended well. I always get too attached and move too quickly and come on too strong and scare them away before we've had a chance to even connect and it's awful. It's so very painful and I'm tired of living with a broken heart.

    Looking for Love (and Sex)

    Some of the women on here, I believe, have a different view of me and what I want.  Yes, I am looking for sex, because I've been deprived of it for two years by a wife who doesn't seem to care anymore.  No, that's not all I'm looking for.  The horny side of me is...

    I'm that gum stuck to your shoe.

    I'm that tattoo you regret. I'm the soft breathing at the back of your neck. I'm that scar that never goes away. I'm the embarrassing memory that haunts you. I will never leave you. I will stay with you forever. Friends. FOREVER.

    Well yes I have felt this, over and over, I am so used to it now, I am not even sure I tend to care about the issue too much. It made me depressed and angry so why actually bother about it? I cared for, and still do about people there are some that have much more powerful impact...

    I want time to stop, I want us to stay,

    let's forget about the past, let's live the present, and make a future, if we give up, if we let this die, we won't, I know I'm not perfect, but I can try, if we give up, you don't need to be alone, you don't need romance, you got me. I won't let our past get the best of us,

    I absolutely hate when someone talks to you, makes you care, and then leaves. That hurts What hurts more, or maybe just adds to the hurt, is when they find someone who is pretty much your ****** twin, and replaces you. That burns your heart. Then you find out, that she is way...

    I latch on to those who understand me sort of

    and make me feel comfortable. Then when they leave me, I get a horrible feeling and live with an emptiness in me for a while until someone else comes along.

    I get too attached to people.

    I don't hesitate to do what they want even if I don't really want to do it. I put their happiness over my own. When I need something from them, they don't care at all. My feelings mean nothing to them. They take advantage of me and I become heart broken EVERY SINGLE TIME. It's a...

    That moment when you realize the people you

    care most about have started to drift away from you and there is nothing you can do to stop it. I know it's a part of life and friendships, but it still sucks.

    I am not sure how to describe it, or whether it has a medical name or a cause, but I get attached to people in an ill manner, I am not sure I used the right word there, and I have not been always like this, as a matter of fact, I have been always 'detached' from everyone and...
