    Consumed By Loneliness

    Not Good Enough...

    Actually, besides God Himself, being single for the rest of my life has got to be my second biggest fear ever. As a child, I was programmed like computer software to think that I was ugly. Which is ironic because I've felt like a robot ever since. No emotion, no sense of place...

    to two and a half years or so, but I'm still super single. I still have yet to meet someone that I can talk to and click with and can enter into a relationship with. I can be around people more because my social anxiety and agoraphobia aren't as bad as they used to be, but I'm...

    The Intellectual

    Well it's not so much a suspicion as it is a supportable fact: I will be alone until the 12th of never. (Forever) I won't even say that, just because I'm so certain of it, I've come to terms with it and it's 'not so bad'. Frankly it sucks. My life hasn't been much fun. It has...

    Well yeah, I always think of scenarios in my
