I 'm Afraid That I'll Be Single Forever

    It is not generally in my nature to *****

    and moan, so perhaps I am overdue one. Please be assured, I am not bitter and twisted. I am merely extremely annoyed! Now, I realise that I am no Brad Pitt or George Clooney and as such I have resorted to trying internet dating, specifically on Plenty of Fish. Well, I say...

    I suppose that being loving kind sweet

    thoughtful and all the other sweet things that I've been called by family are not good enough to gain even a friend. Maybe I should go threw with my plans to give up on women and just stay alone..how hard can that be? It sounds pretty easy I realize that people don't want to be...

    such a bad thing. I know a lot of people who stay in "sexless marriages" and idk why.

    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...

    I've been single for almost eight years now.

    My previous relationship lasted for two full years before it ran it's course. For a long time I thought I was undatable, but I've finally got past that and want to move on. But now I realize I'm still not okay. I know I don't have to be perfect, but I still have to have...

    Three reasons I don't have a gf by now.

    They are judge mental, They have attitudes and it makes it difficult to talk to them and get to know them better and last they go for the ********. So that's the story of my life.

    I am always attracted to women

    who are so attractive to me that they wouldn't give me the time of day. I hate the feeling of being beneath someone despite feeling like such a good find inside. If given half a chance maybe I would surprise someone =(

    I'm not outgoing so internet dating sites

    and speed dating would be ideal for me to find someone else not outgoing, unfortunately I haven't found anyone compatible. Learning dancing (Ceroc and Salsa) was a good way to meet girls but I don't enjoy dancing and can't remember past one or two dance moves.

    Why is it that some people can just float from

    relationship to relationship? I wish I could just once experience a relationship. I don't need dozens of past ones. Just one that means something. Is that too much to ask for? I feel like I am going to be alone forever... I guess it's the holidays making it seem harder and more...

    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.

    This is the one of my biggest fears now!

    I haven't really made up my mind whether being single is a good thing or bad thing, but I do realize that I need some company!

    These words completely go against the Law of

    Attraction ... so I will be deleting this experience from my profile. Think about what you WANT in your life, not what you don't want.

    After 13yrs I find myself single again.

    This wouldn't be a bad thing if I didn't have pcos. I am terrified that no one will be attracted to me with this condition. I stayed in a bad relationship for a long time for that very reason.

    I most likely will be.

    I'm not desperate to find someone... but it'd be nice to have someone to develop love for and hold closely in my arms. I'm very surprised by how I can't seem to attract anyone. I guess I could be attracting shy men but... I never notice anyone looking at me. Most people ignore...

    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...

    Every time I prepared to get to bed I get feel

    sad. I wish I have loving woman beside me and I wrap my arm and hug her tight. Sleeping alone is the worst thing for me. I guess it's my fault I can't get someone attention. I wondering how people talk to other for date. I am terribly failed in this point.

    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...
