    I Live Alone

    I have lived alone now for over 5 years & I love it! I can pretty much do what I want & could never imagine sharing my home with anyone again. People always ask me if I get lonely but I never have, maybe I just love my freedom & space way too much!

    I feel like there isn't really someone out there who destined to be with me, I feel like I'm a burden to some people, I feel like I can be really annoying to people.
