I 'm Afraid That I'll Be Single Forever

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,462 People

    I'm in my late 20's and found out

    that the guy I was seeing and trusted gave me STDs. One of the STDs is not curable (Genital Warts/HPV). Who is ever going to want to date me? I'm so afraid that I'll be alone forever. I'm angry that he has stolen the one thing I've always wanted from me, my ability to have kids...

    I understand that sometimes people aren't ready

    for a relationship. I just wish he realized that I'm worth being ready for.

    People say I am very pretty.

    Whenever they ask if I have a boyfriend. I say no. There like all the boys must be blind because you are beautiful. I sometimes wonder if what they are saying to me is true. I don't always feel good about myself. I sometimes feel like I may never meet someone for me that makes...

    Sometimes I wonder is it fair to ask

    for things in a mate that you can't uphold for yourself? For example, I'd like to date a guy who is in shape and is either a college grad, currently attending or has been but stopped going because of circumstance. Me myself..a fat HS drop out. They say "be the person you'd want...

    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...

    I don't exactly know how to start this

    but I guess I'll just go with it..anyways I'm very shy. Like painfully shy, and terrified of what others think of me. I guess you could say I have social anxiety. I compare myself to everyone and in my eyes I'm never good enough. I find it very hard to talk to people I don't...

    but I know it to be true. Main reason is I don't socials nor do I want to because people suck I'm not say just men i mean people in general they pretend to care, but then they leave you in a parking lot of a mall alone 35 minute away from home with no way to get back because a...

    Everyone now is so in a hurry to get a

    girlfriend/boyfriend. They don't really understand how to keep one it's just for the sex or maybe to make them feel better. I tell people I love being single no one to fight with I get to use my money on only me but really I'm scared. I'm scared that no one will want me I'm not...

    My boyfriend of 5 months just broke up with me.

    He was nice about it, and I could tell it was hard for him to do. He said it was mainly due to bad timing with me being a student and holding down two jobs with odd hours. Just not enough time for us to be together. I've been in a long-term relationship before (lasted 5 years...

    After my rape. I don't think anyone will be

    able to love me. I believe that I am a beautiful person but just with dark emotions that others won't be able to handle because of my past.

    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...

    To be honest, I'm not afraid

    if I'm single forever... I'm joining the military (USAF: U.S. Air Force) and don't want to make my wife or gf worry. I'll probably won't get married, I'd probably will only have girlfriends, which I don't mind. Plus, hopefully I'll get like 8 tattoos, and probably smoke and...

    I know I'm not ugly and I'm not an awful person.

    I'm just really shy. For some reason that scares people away though. I wish people took the time to get to know me.

    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?
