    I've been single for my whole life

    and the pain of not being with someone is unbearable. When I see a couple kissing or making out or even holding hands its sorta sad for me. I say that because ill probably never find anyone not a girlfriend not even a wife. And a part of me doesn't want one. It sucks not having...

    I am 20 and ALWAYS been single.

    Never had a proper relationship where someone could actually call me his girlfriend. No one was ever interested in me apart from one guy who I slept with because I thought he actually did like me. But that's another story. I bet you could guess what happened! Literally...

    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...

    I'M Not Just A Piece Of Meat...

    I have had two failed relationships, the first was a guy who wanted to do *it* before the first (and only) date ended. The second was a sweet, compassionate guy that I dated for just over a year. We didn't talk much over the summer and he broke up with me by text, saying he was...

    Don't get me wrong I love being single

    for the fact that I am independent and unrestricted... But sometimes I wish there was somebody there that would protect me and altogether just love me for me. Guess that is too much to ask for!

    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...

    And I've never even been with someone I particularly cared about. Now I'm in a situation where I have no idea how to approach someone, how to flirt, how to be in a relationship. That hasn't been a problem for a while, because there wasn't anyone I liked enough for that. But now...

    I think I've come to realize

    that I'm not now or ever will be ready for a relationship. I get depressed just seeing women in public. "Just another person that I'll never know". Good thing? "Another person that can't hurt me".

    Separated in '92. Divorced in '95.

    Dated from '93 - '02 but since then I stopped. Kept meeting women who hadn't got over their exes. Like they'd constantly be talking about them. They just weren't ready to date let alone think about starting a new relationship! Maybe I was just unlucky. I think about it every now...

    ..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.
