    Too Risky

    I'd rather hold on to what is left of my heart and sanity than sacrifice it on a platter to another person who will devour it and abandon me.

    I'm Just Messed Up

    That's why I like coming on here and talking to people, it's kind of like no strings attached. I kind of hate it when a guy will come up to me and ask me for my number or try to start talking to me. I'm just having a rough time right now with depression, I have crohns and im semi...

    That's It For Me

    My last relationship that ended has scarred me deeply. It has truly been the worst and most painful experience of my life. It's something that I NEVER want to live through again. No way can I endure living that nightmare over. It's shocked me to my core. I will do whatever...

    The few people who are close and dear to my heart right now, are the only ones who I am allowing myself to get close to, and attached to. I will not punish the ones who I know I can trust, for the mistake that others, and myself have made, I Love them too much, and they just don...

    Enough Is Enough

    I feel so foolish right now, sitting in front of my computer and typing this while listening to my sad, instrumental music. This is always me, when I feel so down, instead of chilling out, I would sit here and soak myself into loneliness. The price I have to pay for being so dumb...

    No Human Connection, Whatsoever.

    In a magazine I read about a study a university conducted about heterosexual friends of the opposite sex. The study concluded that it is inevitable for one party to have feelings for the other or both. I already knew that all of my guy friends would end up liking me and I would...

    No....

    Why would I want to? After letting people in, thinking they are good for me, only to find out that they aren't. Only to be stabbed in the heart, and in the back, only to be hurt, and feeling like an idiot, for letting them in, thinking they would not hurt me? No, I don't think so...

    Leave

    Everytime I get close to someone I let them know how I feel. I have gotten close to someone recently. Everything was fine until they thought they could use me! I have been getting close to people latlety but only beacause I want to get use to this feeling of being thrown away.

    I Took A Chance But It Was My Last Chance.

    I had my wall up high for a long time.  Not just with men, but with friends in general.  I had had it.  So, I *was* a little worried when I found us getting closer.  It came to the point where we were calling and texting multiple times a day.  That was...

    I have always been a very open, very caring, and very loyal person. I'll do my utmost for the people in my life that I see as my family. Close friends being the majority of that group. It has taken me years to see the people who really care. I was very naive for a very long time...
