    I think I am just too difficult to be with.

    my relationships have all been fairly difficult with the men throwing their hands up saying they can't make me happy. I feel that I don't bring value and enrichment to those around me and I don't think my partners should have to deal with that. I have struggled with what I...

    I'm Not Really That Great.

    Well, I have a low self esteem, and how much i mess up doesn't help. Whenever i open my mouth i accidently say something that will hurt someone, and i'm getting tired of it, even the people i love the most cry because of what i accidently say. Before when i had no friends...

    I've always preferred being alone.

    No one to yell at me, no one to worry about. I don't really fancy large crowds much.... I feel caved in, and claustrophobic. I like being alone, especially in the woods. There it's extremely easy to find peace, and I feel as though my war with the world is over, even for just a...

    People Don't Care About Me, So I Don't Care About Them

    Every time I find a girl that I think I would like to be with, I eventually figure out just by the way they talk to me that they just have some sort of problem with me. Sure, I might get high off scents that I get my hands on, but then I don't understand why that constitutes...

    Thank You

    These days, I get to hear music from Africa that no one else has heard before me. We have different beliefs, but if you ask me, coincidence only goes so far. Now, I get to call you "friend" though I'm apprehensive. But whatever happens, it's moments like those - listening to a...

    First off i hate those

    who do it to get pity or a response to change their mind. I genuinely believe being by my lonesome gives me the assurance of not needing to be dependent on anyone. Plus I'm coming to conclude it would be in every ones interest if you didn't get to know me. Maybe my parents from...

    Which Is Good, Because I Am

    I've led a very solitary life which prepared me well for the realization that ultimately we are all alone all the time and the sooner you become your own best friend the better off you will be.  Paradoxically, as soon as you do this, it becomes far easier to form intimate...

    For Me It's Best This Way............

    Yes, that's it...better off alone.  I can't seem to find happiness....I have tried and it's just not there when I am with someone.  I guess some people are just better off alone...Alone, there is no one to hurt you...no one for you to hurt, you can don your own thing...

    I am tired of hurting people.

    When I am alone, I feel free and relaxed and I can do whatever I want to. I do not feel lonely. I believe that I should not have a boyfriend because I do not work well under the pressure of a relationship, I do not like making plans for the future, and I don't want to have...

    Every day, I have had thoughts about my future.

    I have met some wonderful people among the wicked, but there are only two options, the best or the worst case scenario. The best case scenario would be myself living alone for years and years. I have never been in a relationship and I will never ever get married, as I think...

    I've always felt that I could have a connection with someone who has scars. Not only physical scars, which I do find appealing but, the deeper scars that we can't see. I think this feeling boils down to one basic reason: they understand. Right? They've been there - maybe not the...

    Why Hello Lonesome Brick Wall =-)

    Being alone seems to be such an awful place to be. But as the sayings go “it’s all in the eye of the beholder”. Some alone time is needed to figure out if your thoughts and ideas are really your own. A time to set aside and reflect on decisions made and plans...

    Popular Belief

    I don't understand. Other people talk to me about what they consider love, and it is so subjective. "I love you" (if you're beneficial to me) "I love you" (but if you hurt me deals off) "I love you" (if you will do this) "I love you" (if you will not do that) How are they happy...

    I grew up not having any close friends, and I'm 18 and I've never been with someone. These things don't bother me like it use to. I've grown to accept this and embrace it. My only friend being solitude, so much so that when a guy has a crush on me and I like him back, I kinda...
