    I joined this website about four years ago

    absolutely angry with men, with real serious issues that have pushed me towards favouring girls. I don't feel the same now, I sometimes come across old stories I have written here about this issue and I think to myself, how silly, did I actually feel this way towards all men...

    I don't understand what caused me to have issues. I've got a great guy after me and I really like him but I just can't open myself up, I can't even tell my parents I love them... And he wants me to say it to him. Do you think I should see a counsellor? I'm only seventeen and I'm...

    Lack of Trust Is Exausting!!!!!

    I want a trusting relationship, I really do. But, thanks to my mother, (may God rest her soul) I learned at an early age not to trust and how to lie. I know that now I am a big girl and all grown up now. I have since realized the painstaking effort that it takes to lie. So, I...

    From When I Was Very Young...

    I never trust men. Not sure why, I remember getting certain "vibes" from different men that were around me when i was younger. Some men gave it off stronger than others, some i couldnt "read" at all. My father would "point" out certain behaviors with men when ...

    Trying Not To Be My Mother

    My mother is so much like me in so many ways, it's uncanny- except for one thing. She thought the world of her father, and was probably pretty naive when she ended up marrying my father who developed an alcohol problem over the years. Now, at 22, I have serious trust issues...

    Keeping Them At a Distance.

    I'm almost 21 years old, a heterosexual female, and I have never had a boyfriend. Perhaps you can count the 1 week (at the most, I think it was actually shorter) "relationship" I had at 14 a boyfriend, but other than that there have been none. To start, self...

    Not A Poster Child For "Picking A Husband!"

    I Distrust Most Men

    Ever since I was a small child I have distrusted men. Strangely enough I mostly distrust men that are 35 or older. If I'm alone with them I look down and my stomach tightens up. My breathing gets quicker and I get scared. I still haven't figured out why I distrust a certain age...

    Getting Better

    I've begun to trust them more, but I still have issues. It's something that just came on in my mid teens that meant I began to struggle with the people around me. Maybe one I'll be trust issues free.

    Men

    Since, I have had many bad experiences, unfortunately I have trust issues with men.  I don't want to and this is how I feel.  I'm not saying, all men are bad (not at all and no offense), but deep inside, I feel insecure.  Sorry!!!

    Most Believe

    Clearly it is known that most people believe in love, and that one should not run from it. Ok I value and respect the opinion of others, but somehow I don't think they fully understand why we run from love. Simply put I never had a positive male in my life growing up. My life has...

    More Than Trust Issues.

    Men always just want something from me. They disgust me and make me feel uneasy. I try to avoid them at all costs.
