    Freedom Is Another Word For Nothing Left to Lose

    I don't know why, but when I lie in bed daydreaming before I fall to sleep, imagining my possible future, I always see myself alone. Occasionaly, but rarely, there will be a little kid in the picture, but I'm always living alone in Paris or London, writing late at night on my...

    Starting To Doubt If I Will

    I don't think I do and here's why.

    Marriage is not this amazing union between a man and a woman. Or man and man or woman and woman. Marriage is all about money - a legal pledge that two people make to share each other's finances. It's just be romantised to make people think of a neccessitity.

    I am in a serious relationship with my boyfriend and we have gotten in "discussions" about how we feel about long term plans like marriage and children.  It feels really weird to even be talking about these things.  It isn't like I want them now...or ever...I...

    A Certificate - Why

    I had a piece of paper nearly 30 years old, a legal document stating I was married. It was overturned with an online application and signatures on some documents that followed. It didn't mean a thing. I want more than that. To share my life with someone and be connected...

    Commitment Overload.

     I just can't see myself getting married.  Or I can't see anyone wanting to fall in love with me.  Or maybe I just don't want to love.

    Torn On The Matter.
