Horrible In Relationships

As soon as someone starts to like me romantically I know I'm going to have to deal with an uncomfortable situation where they're upset and blame me for how awful it is to be "in love" with me. It is such a pain in the ***.

I am an amazing friend to have, but as soon as strong feelings are introduced people start to make me feel very uncomfortable. For example, where I wouldn't pay much attention to way I say and do, now all of a sudden I have some guy hanging on my every word.

It's even more uncomfortable when people stop acting like themselves in order to do or say something they think I like. If I enjoy spending time around you that means I like who you are, you don't have to work to be more "likable".

Sometimes I will force myself to give people who like me a chance, just because...well, I like them too and I'd want for someone I was attracted to to give me a chance. But in the end, it's always the same. A week, or a month, or three months later we break up and they're terribly upset because I'm not ....I dunno, in love.

I am horrible in love. I'd rather just not deal with it, and be single.

You feel free when you are single.
