In other words, I've decided I CAN'T make peace with being alone for the rest of my life, however, it's easier said than done as I am petrified of going thru all that pain and hurt again.
I know I will just have to figure out a way to get over it.
I'd love to get married someday and certaintly don't hate men, but I'm finding it impossible to move forward.
I have gone from ALWAYS having a boyfriend to NEVER having a relationship and it's been like this since '05, and obviously I'm not getting any younger, lol.
I feared going into any kind of new relationship because I felt like no matter how hard I'd try, I was just going to find myself in another terrible relationship.
If a new relationship opportunity arose, I'd experience a lot of worry over doing something wrong that would then put me on the train to stress, disappointment and feeling exhausted.After you create your account, you'll be able to customize options and access all our 15,000 new posts/day with fewer ads. Background: I'm in my early 30s and attractive and have never had problems finding a date, and I dated extensively in my 20s.However, since my last two relationships went south, I am completely relationship phobic. A few years ago while abroad, I went through a very challenging relationship with a guy I was dating for only four months.This difficult relationship left me in this state of uncertainty, disappointment and distrust.There are going to be great dates and bad dates, dates that make you laugh and dates that weird you out but if you don't put yourself out there and do this, you will always wonder about the unknown and what could have been. It may start as a simple friendship and progress from there.
