I Have Been Single For Way Too Long

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,222 People

    It's been three years

    since my last relationship, yes being single at first is fun, but after sometime passing by, it gets very lonely. Meeting the right person has become a very difficult task to accomplish. I'm not giving up, but the hardest thing is finding someone to give you a chance.

    I've been single my entire life.

    I'm 19 now. It seems like I'm young still but the longer I go on without a relationship, the more I am afraid of having one. What if I mess up because of my inexperience?

    that right girl. Whenever I hear from people close to me say they have finally have a b/f or g/f, it seems like I am the one that is left completely out. Sometimes I feel that I am doing something wrong or maybe for some reason, I don't deserve the happiness I see what my...

    It's hard to explain.

    I am sick of being used as fwb. I don't wanna b ****** with no more. But I also miss that attention. Just receiving any form of attention from a guy. I feel like I've always been their secret play. They wouldn't wanna be seen with me by someone they know. Then they gotta...

    I've been single for over a year now.

    Honestly, I'm enjoying it. I would look to date and make friends but I'm totally fine with taking my time. I think some people want to get married sooo bad bc they've reached a certain age or feel empty. Love will come on its own time...no need to rush.

    I just want to be loved.

    ..but my need for intimacy and closeness came off as slutty on my last date. He flat out had to tell me he wouldn't sleep with me. All I wanted was to be close. A really long hug. Sex doesn't help.

    years. I've tried dating websites, but there is never a mutual feeling. I pray about finding someone, but I'm truly afraid it will never happen.

    Does anyone besides me think thirty years is a

    little ridiculous to go without any sort of companionship? I wish they had an emoticon to show "desperation", but I guess I will have to settle for "depressed". Then again, does anyone out there even care?

    I've been single all my life.

    It's not that I'm ashamed of it or anything, just I want to meet someone new. I live in a small town where everyone knows basically everyone and the only place a person my age can meet other people is school. The guys at my school are very attractive, but their personality is...
