    "So I know this girl who wants this guy", "I know this girl who is always chasing and calling this guy".

    I wonder what this feels like, because I have never had anyone "want" me, but I see it everyday with other people. Can anyone here relate? I guess it is just fate...some are meant to be with someone, while others are destined to be alone.

    I can relate, it bothered me for most of my life. It's only in the last few years that things have changed and I'm no longer concerned with everyone else's relationships. I know its hard, but try not to worry about it too much.

    When I was younger yes people ''wanted'' me. I was very thin,pretty face and nice. Now all that has changed, im still nice but ive lost my good looks. I remember what it feels like to be wanted, it made me feel special. I can relate to how you're feeling now. I'm very over-weight now thanks to meds :/

    I can see where you are coming from, try not to let it get to you too much as it isn't majorly important.

    I find this to be almost always completely untrue when someone says theyve "never" been wanted. Usually, what turns out to be true is that they just didnt want nor reciprocate the attraction of the men or women who have wanted them. They desired to be wanted only by a particular type.

    I don't know what your circumstance is, but you'll look up one day and realize missed opportunities, that the problem isnt with supposedly no one ever wanting you, but with your own perception of value - the value of yourself and the value of others you probably didnt notice when they wanted you.
