Default Not having a companion

Im not sure if this is an attachment disorder, not having a companion can be difficult. Lonely nights and going through life without somebody youd like to share experience with is rough. All of those emotions you long to share are bottled up unable to express them towards somebody you care about. Building a life with that one person is special. You only get one and should choose wisely.

If we only had one then I think we would all be in trouble. I think Im order to make it work we have to find the right one and hope to god they love us as much as we love them. If not, they never were the one. Im in the same boat right now ❤️ Sending love because Lonely is my middle name

going through the same. I am scared to death to meet someone, a guy or girl just to be friends with as the emotional bond or connection is frightening as hell. I would love to meet somone, but how do you when you know if you start to feel a connection with them, and it scares you so much that you stop hanging out etc..I am 46, how the hell do I meet anyone ! Plus I have no idea if i am ever going to be open to more than friends. I have been so damn confused, that I am overwhelmed with feelings that I told my therapist that I felt as if I were "in love" with her. Though I know I am not. I admire her. would do anything for her. and at times if anything its maternal love. But when I think of friends in the past, i would start to feel differently about them, and then push away. Getting close to somone is damn scary.

I feel the same way. Going through life isolated and without adequate support is scary. I also hate how people tend to shame us for wanting to have a companion or partner. The whole you have to be happy alone before you're worthy to have a partner. The vast majority of humans need emotional connections. Not all of us have a close family and best friends since grade school and maybe a partner is our best bet?

Maybe not being able to find a partner could be an indication of some sort of attachment issue...most people seem to bond with others relatively easily which can lead to dates, partners, marriage etc.

I dont bond easy with others myself. I think this could be a trust issue, i find most people are only in it for themselves so finding a relationship is difficult. I read all you have wrote and it has been very helpful. Your very well worded.
