    Spending more than fifteen minutes with anyone

    is just pure torture. Unless I find a perfect human being, I will not marry. While I have had my fair share of relationships, all I ever learned is people are a waste of time. I do not see myself as an introvert as I enjoy garnering attention regardless of whether it is hate or...
