    And will never be. I hide from people.

    I locked my heart. There's no keys to it. No one can come near me. I push everyone away. I am the only person on earth who can't be loved. ever/ :)

    I have never been loved. I'm 21 and already so many of my friends are getting engaged and married and I just feel like I am lightyears behind them. I lie about it because it is embarrassing, so none of my friends know.

    Never Been Loved For Real

    A Lifetime Without Love

    I am 30-years old and grew up in an abusive home, so my early experiences were ones of neglect and they were lacking in love. I used to hold on to the belief that over time I'd be able to surround myself with loving friends and relationships, and that somehow my relationship...

    I Love, But Never Seem To Be Loved

    I've never been loved. It's rather odd admitting that online. I suppose that is the beauty of anonymity. My father was abusive when i was very young, and i am now convinced that he is a sociopath. He is unable to feel emotions toward other people, even his children. My mother was...
