    No Need To Worry

    I ask nor expect anything from you but your respect. I don't require much attention. But don't ignore me. I will do for you without asking anything in return. I hope the same goes for you. Please don't use me in any way. Cause if you do, I just might walk away.

    It's Okay

    You don't have to buy me a present on my birthday. Just remember it's my birthday and say "happy birthday"!Don't feel like the better relationship we have, the more we have to go out to the rink or something. I'm cool with kicking it at your house.

    Extremely

    I stay out of trouble, don't cause drama, don't call my friends up in the middle of the night drunk and lost somewhere asking for help. They can ignore me for months and ask me to hang out and I'll be fine with it. I'm easygoing, and mainly a loner, so I pretty much get by no...

    On Me

    I don't ever ask for anything other than friendship. My friends never have to worry that I will be a burden. At the same time, I always try to be there for them whenever in need and never make them feel like they are a burden themselves.

    Just Talk To Me

    I don't need or want to go out most of the time.  I don't need or want "stuff" from people.  Those things are nice...but not needful.Just talk to me and I'm content.

    I Have My Momentsy

    Yes, I admit that sometimes I have moments of clinginess but other than that I'm pretty good on my own.  The clingy side only comes out if I haven't seen someone in a long time or if we're having a really good time, because I don't want it to end.

    Friendship

    I try to be a low maintenance friend. Always available for those close to me. Not always looking for something in return. Some people are just out for themselves. If they do something for you, they think you "owe" them something. I try not to be one of those people.
