    What Having This Account Is About For Me

    I am isolated in S.E. Va and looking for some new experiences. I am shy and lonely -- a dangerous combination that doesn't allow for much release. So if someone has a suggestion I'm probably down. Break this ice.

    Missing Home

    I moved to VA 4 years ago. And yes I do understand that it can be a very lonely place. I miss my family in Lousisana. It can be diffcult to branch out and make new friends. I can't wait to move back home or atleast closer to my family.
