    Why Do I Keep Choosing The Worst Possible Partner?

    By the time you've worked with hundreds of couples, you start seeing common patterns. Here's the big one: We take the most difficult relationship of our childhood... and we marry it! Ever wonder why so many children of alcoholics marry alcoholics? Ever wonder why so many abuse...

    I guess maybe for a man of my age,

    I should know better, but in my entire life, I have always believed in idealistic, romantic love. The type of relationship that they make movies out of; that seem fake, yet somewhere down deep you know that the best part of who you are would be drawn out in a relationship such...

    I want to be snuggled up with my boo in a posh,

    overpriced studio apartment in Seattle, listening to G Eazy while chowing on Chinese takeout and blazing, with Christmas lights around the ceiling creating a soft glow in the room, while rain taps against the window outside.

    Transparent to the world,

    Have you ever missed someone

    so much that it actually makes you physically sick? Like sick to your stomach? Never believed in love at first sight, but I'll tell you, it exists. The second I locked eyes with that woman, I felt something I never knew existed within me. Never really knew how she felt about me...

    I want nothing more than to be loved.

    I think part of me really believes a great love will save me, I doubt it will happen, after all I really see myself being loved like that in the future, but I daydream about it a lot. Sometimes it makes me sad.

    listening to possibly the greatest love song in

    history (my opinion ofcourse)...... Selena- "dreaming of you" such an amazing yet simple song by the angelic voice of Selena Quintanilla. for those hopeless romantics out there, this song is a must atleast once in your life.

    Yes I'm a hopeless romantic

    but I have a really dirty mind. Which gets pretty boring if you ask me. Sometimes I just sit there and think what it would be to have someone and wish I could have someone I could play around with and love but then I remember I don't want the bullshit.
