    for a long time now, and I am on the path of fixing myself and healing my own wounds so I can someday learn and let someone love me and love that person full heartedly, because that should be the only way.

    I Want My First One

    I want my first relationship. I know that teenage relationships are usually silly. I still want one, but I am afraid of being hurt.

    It's Not Everything

    To tell the truth, it might actually be a good thing in some ways. To me, having a long list of exes might say more about poor decision-making skills than how successful one has been romantically. But clearly society doesn't share that view with me, as most people use their...

    Am I That Scary?

    I don't know what it is. I've been described as kind, thoughtful, considerate, intelligent, a good listener. Even been called cute and handsome a few times. Though they might have just been saying that since I never heard from any of those women again after the first date. Maybe...

    It Starting To Bother Me

    I never really thought too much about not being in a relationship but now (at 23) it's starting to bother me. I feel so left out of something. Like something's just out of my reach. I'm happy for the most part but something feels like it's missing. I don't think I need a man but...

    Why I've Never Been In A Relationship...

    I've never been in a relationship because I have problems. It's virtually impossible for guys to get to know me. I'm like that weird mystery girl. I guess it's not much of a big deal, because I'm only fourteen, but I feel like I'll never be in a relationship because I'm too shy...

    What I Think About Never Being In A Relationship

    I am almost 20. I have virtually no friends.

    None that are close anyway. I have never been on a date or anything of that sort. In truth its probably because I have the social skills of an ostrich. Still, it really sucks. Watching everyone around me find happiness in another person and me being pretty much ignored by...

    Unworthy.

    I just feel like I wouldn't even know where to begin with a relationship. I have been alone for so long and my self-esteem is keeping me down. I just don't think I have anything to give, I'm so boring, and awkward. Even if I met the perfect person, I know I would reject them...

    Not an official one anyway.

    It's never really bugged me as I have never felt the intense urge to be someone's girlfriend, but it seems like a milestone of life that I have not crossed. Very few express interest in me and I have never felt anything beyond a passing crush for anyone else. I've always been...

    in fact I have never had a boy ever call me pretty or say he likes me that way, unless it's over the internet which I don't count because the majority are creeps. It makes me feel horrible about myself. I'm starting to think that there is something utterly grotesque about me.
