I 'm Afraid To Fall In Love

    He's my friend. We have wanted each other

    for ages (over 20 years) but our paths never crossed at the right time. Now he's a widower and I'm separated. It's now or never. It would be just sex. Mind you! Nothing happened yet, but I know it will. Can't help it. I'm drawn to him somehow. Even when I was married he stirred...

    I am afraid to fall in love,

    but I would rather get my heart broken a million times to find my one true love(soundsgay)rather than to just give up on the search all together and end up alone... With cats.

    There is this girl that I am really crushing on

    except the act that we are friends. I don't want to lose her as a friend. We sit next to each other in a couple of my hours at school and we always help each other and talk to each other. We laugh sometimes. But how do I tell her I like her without ruining this but still get...

    It terrifies me to allow all of my happiness,

    my heart, my everything depend on one person. I'm scared to give someone permission to come into my life. It's so easy to loose yourself in someone, and then they drop you. They drop you from so far up

    I've been there i seen what it does to people .

    Screws with you maks you feel like you have it all. You go blind for this one person and then before you know it your dependant on them. They are all you can think about, hell all you want to think about. But where does that leave you if they ever go. Leaves you questionning...

    I'm afraid to fall in love

    because of my trust issues. When I love. I love hard. I make you the center of my world. I am known to be the type of girl that isn't clingy, but I do give a person all of my time, attention, and affection. I desperately would like to find the right person that could love my...

    Seen lots of people break

    and died for love. Gives me the impression of falling to someone unnecessary. That will ruined everything if being fooled by. Another headache, worries and uncomfort. SINGLE!!!! no " I'm in a relationship with freedom"

    If anyone cares enough to get to me later on in

    life, good for them. But I have yet to meet anyone who would want to be with someone who is asexual and who has steel barriers surrounding their heart and soul...no one has that kind of patience or understanding-not anyone I've met anyway. I'm not afraid of getting hurt anymore...

    people don't realize how ******* scary it is.

    Think about it. Someone knows everything about you and has the power to hurt you and crush you! How can you trust them like that. I don't understand.

    ...but I am. I have not just fallen.

    It's more like the whole damn cliff just gave way beneath me. Emotional walls that no one else has come close to breaching have absolutely crumbled at his touch. When he hugs me, I'm absolutely safe...no harm can come to me, unless by him. And I know he won't. This kind of...

    I'm afraid to fall in love,

    because of past expectations and rejection. I'm currently undergrad student, and I'm falling for a grad student that I have been getting tutored for one of my classes. In the beginning, I was just seeing him to get help, and we only talked about my homework and questions I had...

    One wise man once said

    that the greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return. So why do I find myself seeking something that's either just there or not there at all? I crave love, I need love, without it nothing makes any sense! Why is it so that when you want something you...

    I've never been in love before

    and I'm scared to be. I never kissed someone before and I'm even scared for my first kiss. But I will wait for the right person but I think he/she ( I still don't know) will never come. Or when he/she finds me I live under a rock.

    I don't think people are afraid of falling in

    love, i think that people are afraid to meet someone who they already have met last year or the last time they broke up with. And the feeling,they gave you was the exact "object" or "thing" that you're afraid feeling of. People shouldn't be afraid of falling in love and taking...

    I fall too easily. Sometimes

    for people who are no good for me. Then again, I'm attracted to negative and push away the positive. Anything good that ever comes my way is so rare, and so new to me, it's unfamiliar and I consider it a bad thing when I know it's probably a good thing. I have a problem with...

    I have had many opportunities.

    But my first isn't going to be wasted. Only with the one I feel I truly.. connect with. The one I feel connected to despite being half-way across the world even. If that girl does appear, I wouldn' let her go so easily. I'd be worrying 24/7 about what to do for her, or how she...

    My last relationship ended badly,

    let's just leave it at that. My situation hasn't changed, I'm in college so it'd be long distance a lot of time anyway. I just don't want to screw it up again. I want it to be a different situation, I want to actually be together, but right now I'm just afraid of finding someone...

    I'm interested in this guy friend lately.

    I'm not sure to allow my self to for him or should I suppress the feelings. I'm afraid to fall, I'm afraid he might not feel the same in the end. I don't want to get hurt, I hate the feeling of getting hurt so much.

    I know I am young but I am scared to have my

    heart broken again. It hurts a lot and I can't go through it again. It puts you in a desperate position.

    he hurt me, you hurt me. I trusted you, loved you, believed in you. But when you got bored, I was nothing. If you, my friend, could treat me so badly, what will a boyfriend do to me? If I'm nothing to someone I'm just friends with, will I be below nothing to a beau? If I'm...

    Because my first and only love didn't work out,

    when I love someone I have such a deep connection with them and it scares me that they won't feel the same because I felt like I was the one feeling more.
