    So I broke up with this guy years ago

    and after that something inside me changed.. I decided to focus on my career for at least 3years and during that time I became cold.. Like they'd be guys who wanted to date and I just wouldn't be bothered or I'd distance myself from them! Now that I am more open to the idea all...

    There's a saying that reads"all I want is a

    hand to hold and a heart to understand". I never really understood what that meant. But now that I do. Its true. That's all what WE all want. Just someone to be by our side through the good and bad times. Someone to make us feel like we are actually worth loving and needed. I...

    Hey, friends. So I've been doing extremely well

    at moving on from my last relationship. We have no contact, I've been on a couple dates that didn't go anywhere, and I've spent most of my free time out with friends. Today I had a bomb explode in my lap! No...not really..figuratively of course. MY EX OF THREE YEARS IS GETTING...

    I'm 19 now and I've no boyfriend

    since birth. I don't know why there's no one come to talk to me :( i'm pretty sure that i'm not ugly. Sometimes I just think maybe because I was studying in girl high school so i'm not used to talk with a guy. What should I do?

    when I see or hear other guys talk smack about 'nice guys,' as if we're unreliable and crybabies. At least we have something they don't... a freaking heart! Yeah, I care about the girl's feelings. I would certainly hope she is happy being with me and having fun. NOT blow her off...

    I know people say relationships can be

    overrated, but this "casual dating/sex" crap isnt for me. I am one of those "pathetic" people who is more or less a "love addict". I dont fulfill it by being a serial monogamist, but when I am lucky in rare instances to have someone with me longer than a month, I feel alive...

    I've never dated anyone

    and all my friends have! I can never tell if a guy likes me of if he's just my friend. I mean I really like my friend Trevor but I I'm to shy to tell him and I'm afraid we wouldn't be friends any more if he said no or if we broke up.

    People can tell me that I have all the time in

    the world to meet someone, but I'm socially awkward and have a lot of medical problems. If I ever find the right person you can bet I will do everything I can to make them not regret being with me.

    My friends always joke

    that I have really high standards, and I believe them to an extent. Although, I'd rather have high standards and find someone perfect for me than to settle for an unhappy relationship. If you never try you'll never know.

    OK, "afraid" is probably the wrong word choice.

    I'm not afraid I'll be single for the rest of my life, I'm quite certain of it. As much as I'd love to find that perfect woman to spend the rest of my life with, I'm also terrified to look. Stick your hand in the fire too many times and you learn to fear the flames. Well, I've...
