    I Get WAY To Attached

    It's really hard for me. At times I can be completely attached to someone. And they say how much they like me, and even love me as their friend. They bring me into their family circle and I think "Wow. I feel so whole inside." But suddenly, as if the whole world crashes down...

    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...

    Is It Attachment

    I'm sort of secluded. But I believe that is the exact reason why I cling to the creative , or intellectual people I meet. Though I'm a musician I'd prefer not to be in the spotlight..but i enjoy the company of genuine and passionate people. I just feel like I like positive people...

    The Feeling She Gives Me

    She found me as a broken man and helped to fix me up. She made me think I wasn't worthless and that I mattered. She gave me a warm feeling inside my newly mended heart that I had forgotten I could feel. That feeling makes me want to return the favor and more. I want to know...

    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.

    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...

    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 get too attached to the wrong people.

    I think I have attachment and abandonment issues from childhood. So when somebody really cares about me, I feel stifled. But if they throw me a few crumbs and then ignore me, I'm madly in love. FML.
