I 'm Afraid That I'll Be Single Forever

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,572 People

    I am starting to give up on life.

    Each day I grow emotionally weaker and weaker. Every crush that I have ever has ended up in failure which makes me think that I'm a failure. I have no hope in myself anymore. Whenever I buildup confidence to talk to a girl that I like, it just gets shot right back down because I...

    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...

    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...

    that I'll die alone Having no one around. I can't Get a friend or a girlfriend and I have come to the conclusion that I might be the problem and do not know how to react or go on. It drives you mad to feel so alone

    If I was to sacrifice my life

    for the sake of being with just one other human being. I wouldn't hesitate to kill myself.

    So here's the thing. I know I'm young,

    and that I have a lot more life to experience, but this is how I feel: I feel like I will be single forever. Why? Well, I find the thought of sex and ************ and any physical intimacy of that nature to be repulsive. I just have zero interest in any of it. And everyone I...

    I just feel no one has

    or will ever have any feelings for me because I'm just weird and not an amazing person. That's how I grew up and now that's how everyone looks at me so I'm just stuck in This position for the rest of my life

    Ah yes, the age-old fear of being single

    forever plagues me as well. Let me tell you why: Both of my crazy-*** parents were single after I was born. Forever. I wish they were closet homosexuals, but that /isn't/wasn't the case. They are/were simply repulsive individuals that nobody likes/liked. I'm always followed by...

    I'm Bigendered. My gender identity swings from

    male to female and back again. Finding a woman to be ok with that and love me is hard. If it's possible at all.

    The term "the one " is an illusion,

    or it wasn't meant for me. I've only really loved one person with all my heart and he was abusive so we had to part. Since then I've been pretty much alone , 8 years except for the odd date. I'm now 33 and thinking will I ever find the right person, I have a good career, but...

    20 and a half years old

    and never even had a guy have a crush on me, let alone a boyfriend. I guess my fear of being single forever is legit.

    I have an honest fear.

    It's not melodramatic or self indulgent, but honest and really really real. It's something that hits you out of nowhere that I'll end up an old woman with a myriad of health issues and owning an ugly poodle who snaps and growls at anyone else but me. It sounds funny and I'm...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    I mean being single aint the worst thing in the

    world, but after a while its gets boring and lonely, and in the times were living in now, I don't see a relationship anywhere in my future. Most boys only want sex, but that's not what I want. I wanna settle down. I wanna be loved. :(
