    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.

    I Guess I Had It Coming

    I took my girlfriend to the French alps to learn to snowboard, and she got upset that she couldn't and punched me in the face, trashed the hotel room and yelled at me for about an hour telling me how she hates me and wished that I never brought her to Europe. Now I'm scared to...

    And It's Starting To Show

    I haven't been with someone so long I find myself having random thoughts like, "I love wearing shorts. I can't wait for the next warm day to wear a mini. My toes are looking hot. Why are my breasts swelling up so much?" Ugh, I need to get laid.

    A Decade Came And Went

    I kept track of it pretty closely for the first 5 years, had a vague idea for the next couple, but was honestly surprised to realise that it must now be over 10 years since I had a girlfriend. Growing up I was never happy about how hard I found talking to girls. I was never...

    I've been single for

    so long I just recently turned 16 and I've never been on a date or even experienced my first kiss. I would love to be in a relationship but the guys that are my age are just conceited and complete idiots, not to mention jerks.

    How do you know when you've found "the one.

    " I feel like most of the time people get lonely and settle for someone. Finding that true love...is it for real. If so, how? Give an example. Lol like I met someone who I knew in the past. Sure I like him but I didn't get that feeling of instant chemistry they people say is...

    I've never been more ready to meet a girl than I am now. I want to really start to settle down and enjoy being with a girl again. I really miss the intimacy of being in a relationship and just knowing your partner is there next to you. I know I must take more risk in asking girls...

    I don't even remember

    since when....but everybody has needs sometime. I still enjoy single sex as alone, if you know what I mean, because it makes much easier and happier for yourself, if you are having sex with someone, gotta make sure he / she like it not just you.

    Three years! I meet a lot of great people

    that always ask if have a girlfriend or wife and I say no. It's gets to me when they say "oh why, your good guy and handsome" all I can say is haven't found the right one and when I do she ends up being odd and full of **** that she or I end up calling it quits. FML :)

    Is 18 years long? Never had anyone.

    People tell me I'm attractive, that I'm interesting, that they'd give me a shot if they were single, and yet, no one has ever given me a shot. I mean, hell, I've given up at this point. If I can't even get a fling in high school... why bother?

    I have been single for about a year now

    and I don't know why. I am very kind, honest, and humorous with girls. I don't understand how I always get put in the friend zone while the girl falls for someone who is not that intelligent and/or does stupid things.
