    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

    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...

    A few weeks ago, this person

    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...
