    am I the only one who avoids any type of romance movie because I know I'll cry and feel alone afterwards?

    I've been seeing previews of The mortal instrument movie and I know if I watch it, I'll cry because of the romance undertones, I avoid movies, tv shows, books anything with potential romance because I'll feel sad and lonely.

    I don't have a significant other and I doubt I will ever get one at this point. I tried, and tried, and tried and I don't seem to be getting good partners and I'd rather be alone than in a bad relationship yet...it's hard to be alone...and these movies remind me that I'm alone and loveless....

    I guess I'm pathetic

    I know how this feels, I love anime, but.... there is always love and relationships and sexual tension and stuff like that in them. No matter what the context, serious, comedy, porn, whatever I still get really depressed whenever I see it because I will never have anything like that.

    I do the exact same thing. Also, if I'm watching a TV show and it shifts to a love/romance scene (like a couple making out for example), I immediately feel horrible and change the channel as quickly as possible. I just cannot stand displays of affection I guess, whether it be acting or in real life. Just reminds me of what I no longer have and what I don't think I will have again. So you are definitely not alone in this. Glad I read this because I felt like I was the only one who did these things.

    I'm glad and sad that I'm not the only one, no one should feel like that...it's quite painful...and very annoying because I miss out on a lot of good movies and shows...but I don't know...I prefer horror, scifi and action films to anything else. I also tend to not watch when there's romantic affection between characters...

    I'm glad to have read this too in a way because I definitely do that too I will most likely never have that in my life ever again n do not want to see or think about anyone else having it either because it just makes me very mad and upset.
