I 'm Afraid That I'll Be Single Forever

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,173 People

    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.

    Everyone around me is married.

    I have no friends who are single. I am too busy with work right now...and too tired and wanting some peace and quiet after work. Is this a recipe that I will end up alone?

    I have never had a relationship

    before in my life, I have acne on my face. I'm getting depressed at nights. And most of the year, I am out at sea working onboard ships for 9months at a time. But still I always cling on to hope.

    I've never dated a girl

    nor have I had a girlfriend. I was rejected so many times to the point that I have up looking, that and also a few certain girls that took advantage of me. I wish that I could find a girl that can reciprocate my emotions.

    So I'm gonna be 28 in 1 week

    and I've never had a girlfriend. Never even came close to having one. I want to know what I'm doing wrong? My parents and family have faith that someone will come along but I know they just want to give me comfort and that it's not gonna happen. I'm not ugly either, my height...

    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...

    I don't know where to start this off,

    but I'll just first say that I can't do anything remarkable. I'm not special. I'm not good at anything. I'm just ordinary. I try so hard to change that, but nothing I do is good enough. I'm slowly starting to rethink all of this. I'm starting lose hope. I'm not seeing a...

    I get attached to easily

    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?

    It's been 2 or 3 years

    since I broke up with my first boyfriend because he didn't treat me like a guy should treat a girl. I'm scared to get in another relationship because I don't want to be treated the way my Ex treated me. Sometimes I think I'll never find the right guy.

    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...

    Everyone is beautiful in their own way. So don't think that your stupid or ugly because you don't have a boyfriend. Your time is comes. Don't give up. And remember that if you don't love yourself, you can't love anybody. Xxx celeste

    Every few years or so, I wind up randomly meeting a guy that I really like. I get hopeful that they're interested in me too. But it always turns out that they aren't. It's heartbreaking every time. Is it possible for a guy I really like to feel the same about me, or do I have...

    I get lonely, and I get envious of my friends' relationships, but I wouldn't say I'm afraid of being single. Honestly, as sad as I've been told it sounds, I'm used to being rejected, and lonely. I've heard the phrase "You're not my type" enough to not be surprised when I hear it...
