    This guy i know is beautiful.

    Not a lot people think so but I do . He sat next to me and we talked but I wanted to leave because I couldn't bear it. Yet when I left i regretted not making an effort. I think he is attractive but surely we would of hit it of by now? I've spoken to him ( long convos ) twice

    I've never quiet known what I've wanted.

    I get sooo close to some people than I shut them out completely. It's so strange, it's like the flame dies. I don't want it to but one day I could feel like I would move mountains for this person than the next I don't even want him to look at me. I love the chase, having what I...

    I feel completely lost.

    I have dated boys. I think boys are attractive. I like boys. Then why do I always imagine myself with a girl? I think girls are attractive as well. They are just beautiful human beings to me and I would love to be affectionate with one. Only problem is that my parents are...

    A few weeks ago, this person

    who I just met had an impact on me.. We don't talk anymore, but he brought up that I don't know what I want, and it did in fact bring me to the reality I was so desperately trying to detach from. Do I really know what I want? The answer to that, no. I don't. I don't know what I...

    But, Something Is Missing

    It's not money.  I've had that and it doesn't fill me up.  It's not friends because they sometimes make me feel anxious.  It's not food because I have to recyle that.  It's not fine wine, I've had that.  On the other hand, great hugs, kisses and more...

    Why am I so confused?

    Maybe not knowing what I want is related to...wait a. Minute it IS related to being fearful of making a decision and not knowing it's outcome. What if I'm wrong? What if I'm not seeing things clearly? I don't want to walk away but staying is draining me. What if I'm right?! What...
