    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...

    It scares me a little.

    Actually. It scares me a lot. But I ignore it.

    Not many things scare me,

    but I'm honestly terrified of dying unloved. Terrified of never being someone's late night thoughts, of no one looking at me like I'm their whole world. I'm terrified of watching everyone around me get into these beautiful relationships while I'm the only one left behind...

    It really gets to me sometimes.

    I keep waiting for it to happen but it never does. Maybe I'm meant to be alone?

    ive been single for 2 years now,

    not had a real relationship for a lot longer than that. I struggle talking to people and have mental health issues too, maybe at the minute I should be single but its getting harder to see a time that this will change

    I think I enjoy myself too much

    that I feel I would be left alone by myself. Rather I m looking for a person everyday who can make me forget about myself

    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.

    People say I'm great,

    but if I'm so great then why doesn't anyone want to date me? Am I that overqualified for them?

    I think it's too late

    for me now. I think it's too late for me to learn how to let someone in. Not that anyone ever shows the slightest bit of interest in me anyway. But I think I wouldn't know what to do with a bit of attention. Maybe it's for the best I remain how I am... Some people aren't made...

    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 might just buy myself a skeleton

    and tie its limb to the bedpost... so that it will never leave me here...all alone. Late at night I would just lay there, cuddle next to him and pat his head, really slowly. OK, real issue : I'm a total freak ._.

    who aren't going to ask for pics right away like most do. I want genuine conversations and a real friendship before I'll even consider anything more.

    I have come to accept this is my life.

    I would like to get married but every time I think about my life I just can't see it happening. But still I feel it's better to be alone than married to someone I don't really love. Of course 5 years from now I may feel differently.

    Welp, another one dead on arrival.

    It's like I either get emotionally defensive men or emotionally detached men. There's never a comfortable middle or just a guy who is emotionally balanced period. Not to say I am perfect. However, I'm glad I walked away early because- 1. Dont make me feel bad for feeling...

    It seems like no one wants you

    but they look all in your face as if they wanna get to know you but are scared of the fact that you might not be what they thought you were. Judgemental right ? 😴
