    I don't know about sexy, but why worry about getting older it's not as if you can slam the breaks on and stop it. My recommendation grow old disgracefully and have fun.

    I'm Afraid . . I can't take take the pain when I get hurt. I can't. It takes a lot of courage to trust a guy. I refuse to let my heart take another "L" (loss).
