    I'm Used To It

    The Difference Between Need & Want

    I am not afraid to be alone for long periods of time. Long, meaning years. Alone meaning in a relationship, living with others,that sort of 'alone' . I have grown up with a huge family, -both extended and siblings- and it's not that I am tired of them. I love them to death , they...
