    I think I am the very definition of a hopeless

    romantic. I want someone in my life that I can love and please, but absolutely no hope that I'll ever reach that stage in life. Any buhddist monks out there looking for a new recruit?

    Love me so bad you'd be scared. I want you to think of me while you work. On the way home. When you eat. When you read. When you wake up. While you sleep. I want to be your every thoughts. It's a pervert emotional penetration of the mind. I want to be the air you breathe. Your...

    It is romantic, passionate, loving. Recently described as kind. It is not just perfect for a grown-up, romantic, caring woman but it’s good fun for the children too. It’s definitely not heavily used as it’s been lying in the shed in the last several years untouched. Low...

    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.

    So I was at the park

    and there was this group of guys playing volleyball (two of them were pretty cute). I wanted to go talk to them except I hadn't washed my hair, looked like crap, and was ultimately too shy to do anything. They've left and I currently feel very disappointed in myself.

    Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong
