    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 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...

    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...

    Love Hurts.

    (BUT DANCING LIKE AN IDIOT HELPS). i’ll be honest with you. i’ve only had my heart broken properly a couple of times. whether that’s to do with simply stepping off the love roundabout minutes before it screeched to a sickening halt, or choosing spilt-milk men who are...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
