I 'm Cynical About Love and Someone Loving Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 462 People

    When it comes to love I am a stranger.

    I have never truly felt nor experienced this emotion before. I always fear that people have motives or strings attached for their love. Like love is a toy dangled in front of a cat trying to paw desperately to obtain. I just do not seem to trust others so easily, more than...

    Good Guys Finish Last.

    I hate to sit on  a pity-pot and whine, but it's so frustrating for nice guys like me.  I the kind of person who is genuinely loving and supportive, compassionate and generous... to a fault.  I love to party and have a good time and I'll hang out with different...

    I Hope To Stop Being So

    I've been in love twice in my life, and although neither ended in some tragic fashion, they each left me affected in a different way. There are many other experiences that feed into my cynicism as well, but it is definitely shaped by my own experiences with love. But I hope to...

    then I realize that I am loved deeply and that he would do anything in his power, and has, to prove it. He is amazing, brilliant (smartest man I have ever dated in fact), sexy, and all mine. MMMMM

    My head isn't in a good place right now

    and it's interesting how running into my ex today after 4 years has left me feeling. I feel like my mind wants to take me back into the past, where there was so much depression and hurt. I'm not blaming him for it, but he did cause much of my pain. I was in the grocery store...

    I don't think I'm an easy person to love

    and I don't like most people. The odds of finding someone who (1) can tolerate me, (2) actually likes me, (3) is attracted to me AND that I like and am attracted to?! The odds of that are astronomical!!

    Thanks To Past Experiences

    I've been with several people and none of them ended very well. The first had been with me and we had been decent with each other though we never really went out on dates, at least it never felt like a date. Though we were together they openly told me they were in love with two...

    Life, Love And Being Cynical

    I have been in love before. Whether it was "really real" or just infatuation, I'm not going to get into here, and I'm not going to guess. But since those relationships in which I believed I was "in love" have since come to an end, it's left me in a strange place. I hate chick...

    I was never like this I

    though Love was the key to happiness. Then when the person you Love most in the world walks on you, and you're left feeling alone it's changes. If the person who Loved me did that what chance have I got.

    It Depends

    When it comes to loving a friend as a friend or loving family, I believe. But BF/GF or Husband/Wife I don't really want. Aromantic Asexual and S.F.L. representin'! Goodbye.

    I guess in this post,

    it won't be about how I want to be loved but I can't because of trust issues, or because I am afraid of being broken hearted. Actually, I've never experienced anything about love and when I was younger, I use to imagine me being in love. Funny huh, yeah well, not any more. I...

    I do love people and care deeply

    for every living thing, the problem is that I feel and almost truly believe that I am unlovable. I've been told I don't have a lot of self-respect, I don't want to be one of those people with low self-esteem who talks about how lame they are.. but I'm not sure how to look in...

    As I get older I've started to believe

    that the idea of love is just too good to be true. Who just falls in love at first sight or want to spend the rest of their lives with someone? I know it's possible for some people but I don't think it is for me.
