    Why?

    I always know how to ruin conversations with girls, I can never talk to girls. It always makes me look like a *****. All I am is different. That doesn't mean I don't treat girls right.

    have you ever been a lost in reality?

    walked the steps already laid down by yourself? see your life as an outsider? you are aware that your capacity to feel is being shortened on momentary basis. But still trying to explore whats left of it.
