    My girlfriend and I broke up 4 months ago

    after 4 years of being together. We didn't end on good terms and at the same time it wasn't clear to me if she still wanted us to keep talking or not afterwards. Keep in mind, it's safe to say that I showed her the good things in life; I wholeheartedly tried to give her a future...

    Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong

    I've been in love twice.

    I loved both experiences. I know I am young and maybe that's a reason for people to believe that I've never been in love, but I believe I was. My heart hurt from the joy and happiness they gave me when we were together and it hurt a lot more when I lost them. I loved, I lost...

    and rough in the bedroom. that's not to say I don't like to make love. oh I do I do. but there is nothing like being treated like a lady in public and then like your irresistible in bed.

    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.
