I'm feeling a little crap and insecure because yet again I'm trying to make myself look good so I can attract a female that I like but not just because of that but I also want to look good so that other guys will look at me and think... this dude is friends material or maybe think that I'm going places or something.

I don't want women for sex but more for company also the medication I'm on has had an effect on the bedroom apartment side of things. I want female company much more and companionship but its highly unlikely I'd get that.

Every time I feel confident and get a new outfit or something feeling good, there is always other guys who look much better than me and the women want them, not me. I will look in the mirror and look good or at least I think so but I go outside see my refection in something and see a freak and think "oh my god is that me" and want to go home and hide myself away and give up.

Feeling depressed cause of the breakup that happened 2.5 years ago. I haven't gotten over it and don't know if i ever will. I feel i could have used one of these forums back then. Anyways, I'm still in contact with him but like i don't know if he will give me another chance as i feel i messed up. I know they say it takes two to mess things up but i reflect and think what i could have done differently and there's so much that comes to my mind. We were a happy couple and used the words forever to refer to our relationship. Then the last 8 months of our 5 year relationship i started getting distracted by nosy intruders which was the community where i was living at the time in Asia. I am not accustomed to such intrusion into my life and well that led to discomfort and emotional instability at times. People couldn't mind their business and drove me nuts. It led to the break up. Anyway, we still comunicate minimally and i hope he gives me another chance cause I'm like a flat tire these 2.5 years and i need his love and him back. So much pain has come from that. So right now feeling really depressed.

I feel a bit weird after texting someone I knew at school and we were chatting. I found out I'm the only one in our group of friends not to have kids. I always felt different from the other girls at my school.

I feel paranoid and anxious. It never really ends. I feel like a prisoner in my own home because they're always watching me.

So i think texting helps soothe the feelings as i become tired and sleepy from it.

So i feel like shit cause he hasn't texted and that only means he doesn't give a damn about me. If i text enough he does reply but what the hell is that. Im so pissed and sad and mixed with other emotions right now. Why did he have to leave me while we were in that one country. Why he left me like that. Why couldnt we talked things over and why did he have to go and imagine things that weren't true. Why did he think i was cheating on him. Life will never be the same. Im so depressed right now. He said forever and i believed him and emotionally invested like no other.

Well you only have yourself to blame for having trusted it him so much. Don't you know, you don't put all your eggs in one basket.

There are couples that last a lifelong and i thought i could be one of those so i was fully committed. I just happened to screw up a bit here and there that's all.

A little more serene thankfully. Less irritable. It's almost 3 am here but I think I will go offline soon and watch some TV shows or movies if I can focus.

I don't feel too bad. Had a talk out the front with my neighbor for a little while. Make me realize how much better i'm going, was afraid to leave the house for years and now I out talking to people in the street and enjoying it, so pleased. Still lonely but this place is making a big difference to my life, thankyou to everyone for chatting with me, it's awesome

I'm not sure, but I think I feel depressed after yesterday's fight with the Mrs. I just feel like crawling into a massive hole (if that makes sense). I guess it's some of my protective factors chiming in (that everything is just a temporary state and to take nothing for granted). I always said I'd rather die than to live on the streets again (which is what would happen if she decided to end the relationship).
