    Am I Relationship Material?

    After living 35 years I now have discovered that my worst enemy hasn’t been life or others; but simply myself.  I always wanted to be a pleaser,  in fact I fit best in this role.  I like harmony and peace, I shy at confrontation or disagreement, I am usually the first to...

    Just Another Day

    I am 26 years old and I only dated one girl for only 3 months. It is painful not to be able to experience a true loving relationship. Everyday I don't look forward to the fact that I don't have a girlfriend when I wake up every morning. I am a intelligent and nice...

    I Guess Thats Just The Way It Is

    I am a 27 year old woman who is a mother to a beautiful baby boy.  Who came from one of the very short and few relationships I have experienced.  It just seems like nothing or no one seems to stick.  I would have to say my longest relationship which just ended...

    Do guys care if the girl is "inexperienced" per

    se in relationships. It's not like I'm dumb about things, I've just never had a serious relationship before. Is it a turn off for guys if the girl he's seeing has never been in a committed relationship? I often find myself scared / weary to tell guys this. Because I think it...

    Tired Of All Of The Pressure

    I'm a 24 year old who wants to have a relationship but is scared of getting into one because I'm sick of the rejection and the hurt. I will admit that I have a lot of good qualities and many of my friends and family keep wondering why I'm still single. I've been overweight my...

    Don't Know If It's For Me

    I'm only 21, so people always say I still have time to find that "special someone." Maybe they are right, but for now, I am actually fine with it. I have been in quite a few relationships, and none of them have been for more than 4 months--and in all of them, I ended it. Now don...

    I am 36 and never had a boyfriend.

    I have dated, but one of 2 things happens, either the guy just wants sex or the chemistry is missing. (Meaning they like me, but aren't attracted to me and I am put in the friend zone)

    When Will This Hell End?

    A bit about me - I grew up without a father, and my mother is Chinese and had a very "hands off" approach to raising me. She loved me alright, but I never had anyone to talk about in terms of relationships with the opposite sex. So I went through secondary school (11-18) never...

    From What I Can Tell....

    I've been friendzoned again. **** sucks. I guess I should be glad to have somebody who seems cool with hanging out with me. I guess I should be happy that I had enough delusional hope left to actually think that she might actually like me when she contacted me about going hiking...

    I look around and see all these people in relationships and I see how happy they are. Then I think of how alone I am and how happy I'd be to have a relationship like theirs.
