    I really don't think I am the marrying type.

    I have tried it twice, both times they failed miserably. I am aware I pick the wrong men, men who use me and take away from me, but I also just think it isn't for some people - not for me. I believe many people quit trying to make the relationship better, stop working on it...

    He called himself marriage phobic,

    someone who couldn't really be okay with settling down so soon. Losing his personal space and freedom. That was totally understandable for her. A million times that he told her he doesn't want to get married was understandable for her. She thought he'd take time. Life changing...
