    Ive never been in love.

    Not real love, the kind you spend with your boyfriend cuddling up in front of a fire and kissing under the rain. Ive loved from afar, but as soon as they ask me out, i convince myself i dont like them anymore. But the truth is, im scared. Im scared of committing myself to...

    Being Alone

    I am a 63 year old that has never been in love. I have no kids and am estranged from my family. Friends are few and far between and I believe that I will never be in love. It is very sad for me because I really want to feel something. I feel like I do not matter to anyone. It all...

    So as of a few days ago I was convinced

    that I have been in love 3 times in my life. Twice with co workers and once with someone on EP. But I've started to think, maybe I wasn't in love. I probably don't even know what love is. I was probably infatuated, because I feel like love should be returned, therefore I couldn...

    I've never been in mutual romantic love before.

    I've had strong feelings for men but they have never been returned. (sound the little violin) lol I don't mean to sound like a martyr. I'm just merely curious about love. I saw a couple holding hands today. They looked so happy and I can't help but wonder if I'm missing...

    I have never been in love.

    I never really wanted a relationship. I actually want to be single forever and have no kids. I don't want to fall in love. Save myself the heartbreak.

    Love Is Never- Never Land

    I am age 44 and have never been in love. Ever. I honestly don't know if I'm capable of it. But perhaps I am, because I would like to experience it before I die. I have dated sporadically in the not too distant past. And I've actually had 1 girlfriend in my life. But I felt no...

    Never..as In Never Never..

    I know about love. I've read about it in books. I've seen it in movies and around me among my friends. I've heard it in songs and from people. Wow!I can do a PhD in love! This "Knowing" doesnt change a thing..ofcourse it only make the longing stronger almost tangible!because even...

    or just infatuation. It's so deceiving.

    but I want that experience like "talking", going on dates, falling asleep on the phone, surprise visits, everything like that, I want to see what its like.

    And My Only

    concern is when i do..if i do ever fall in love..will it be love or deep infatuation..will i LOVE the person..or love the IDEA that the person is with me..I see how seemingly sensable girls turn into pure asswipes over boys..i just pray i'd never turn into that.

    The Romantic Sense

    I love people. I love my parents, as far away and embarrassing as they are. I love my sister, I wish we were closer, but we're so different. I love my best friend, the person I can tell anything to without judgment and can always  turn to for advice. She's a...

    I can't fall in love with someone

    because I'm serious about relationships and I don't want someone who just taking what we have as a joke and just playing around with my feelings.

    I'm already in my mid twenties,

    and I've never had a boyfriend. I have loved them from afar, but as soon as it seems someone is interested, I push them away. I guess I'm afraid of it becoming real, even though I crave it too....sigh, I guess I'll end up as a crazy old lady with only cats for company

    I've just turned 24 and have never fallen in love. I've never held a girl's hand, never kissed a girl, never even had a girl develop a crush for me. I've never looked deeply into a woman's eyes and smiled as she gazed back at me with her own loving eyes. I walk through each day...

    I only say this because I think being in love

    requires both parties complete infatuation . I love people who love me but loving them doesnt mean I'm in love with them . People aren't really genuine or strong enough for me to fall in love . I'll settle for happiness and stability .

    I'm Not Sad, I'm Glad

    I have never fallen in love with anyone yet and I'm not rushing it. People act differently when their in love. I don't like it. I prefer to stay single. I'm too busy thinking and studying to be with anyone.

    I've went on dates and had my fair share of crushes but I have never been in love. I'm not looking for love as of yet because I'm just mainly working establishing a career and struggling financially so this guy is not dating or husband material yet. Is that wrong because I'm...

    I've never liked someone before.

    I only had crushes (usually one-sided) but I wonder how being in love feels like. *random thoughts* (maybe because i'm just ugly so no one likes me) :/

    I usually keep away from people,

    I don´t have interest in forming a meaningfull relationship, or getting married, or having children. Some friend try to set my up with guys, but I just turn them down right away. If they are looking for a relationship, they should try someone else.
