I Have Never Been In Love

    I'm beginning to believe "Love" has been hyped

    up, maybe it's the same feeling as having a crush-but the other person has a crush on you as well: and that's "love". If so, I miss having crushes but I'm going to give up on the idea of falling in love, and just try to marry someone responsible/tidy/middle-class and who I can...

    I'm turning 26 and never been in love

    or been in a serious relationship. There are a couple reasons why I used to be very shy, I don't have an outgoing personality and I started dating when I was in my early 20's when I had my first boyfriend, I met him online. The relationship lasted a few months and since then...

    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 want a girl who wants the same thing I want

    to have a real relationship, going out places,not sex,getting to know each other holding hands,kissing , hugging, holding each other. Real love not fake love through sex.

    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.

    I've never been in love

    but I've had crushes for guys. The strongest feelings I ever had was for a Counselor I had. I don't want to fall in love if they don't love me back.

    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.

    Is it even possible? I don't think I can love

    someone. Every time I'm with a girl I just want to have sex. I try to care about her but it's like I have to force myself to. I want to love not just have sex. I want to care about a girl and love her but it's hard.

    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...

    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...

    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'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 usually keep away from people,

    I donĀ“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.

    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 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'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...
