1.) I am super insecure about my height…I’m 5’6″ as a guy and girls don’t like that.
2.) As a guy I am insecure about the way I look naked so I try to always have sex in the dark to hide myself in it.
3.) I’m a guy and I’m just 5’4″. I hate that my height cuts the dating pool by more than half.
4.) I hate that dating is a numbers game ans as a guy you have to prove your worth most of the time.
5.) All this infidelity, insecurity, miscommunication, & the games people play on here really don’t make me want to date so much anymore…
6.) I hate how I suck at flirting in real life but I’m good at flirting while texting. It’s hard to even have a normal conversations with the girls I like. I’m a guy.

5.) I’m actually really scared to have sex cause I’m a virgin and I’m insecure about my body.

17.) I’m self-conscious because my penis is too big, girls are always scared about it and it really does hurt my feelings.
