    Hi..I am 25 f from India.

    I haven't posted any personal experience/thought anywhere online yet. I almost despise the idea of letting people who know I am. Here I am doing exactly that. Only, I don't really know who I am. There is a price you pay for your arrogance. I have been this way for as long as i...

    I have my whole life ahead of me. I'll meet the right guy someday. Blah blah blah. I believe all of it,I do...but in the back of my mind I have this fear of being alone forever. I'm not like the girls my age. I don't enjoy going out to bars or the beach. I like watching movies...
