    There Are No Perfect People

    The person who was perfect for you at twenty could be the person you hate when you’re thirty-five. You have to find some one who will grow with you, change with you, laugh with you and be by your side always. A person who fills in where you lack, a person whom you can fill in...

    Forever The Love-lorn And Skittish It Seems.

    Okay so I'm not going to bash myself. I have talents, some self-confidence, and lately I've made great strides in meeting new people and making new friends in college. I did have a boyfriend once but I messily ended it when I felt we were more like friends than I wanted (also I...

    A Girl'S Needs Are So Simple

    A girl's needs are so simple. She just needs you to pay attention, because that attention reassures her you're still interested. She needs you to put in some effort, because that effort reassures her she ain't the only one who's trying. She needs you to make time for her, because...

    You Know That Feeling?

    You know that feeling? When you're just waiting to get home into your room, close the door, fall into bed. Just let everything out that you kept in all day. That feeling of desperation. You're tired. Tired of everything, tired of nothing. You just want someone to be there and...

    My Story

    Well I'm the kind of person who people would turn to as a friend to laugh with and I'm sure people never ever think of me in the romantic way. I don't think I'm too bad looking but I'm not great to look at either. I do have friends though but I tend not to hang out with the...

    I Don't See It Happening

    Honestly I'm ugly and have pretty bad self esteem and not a lot of confidence sometimes.I'm also not very stylish and don't show much skin. I'm still trying to figure out what flirting is but I'll just assume I'm bad at it-no one seems to be able to explain to me what it is but...

    Limits

    Never

    It doesn't matter: What I do What I wear What I say How I act How I treat anyone It never happens. I'm glad that I stopped having crushes. It makes me feel better for being less passionate. I can't have rejection if I rejected those who reject me. I am a strong, cute person. I'm...

    I dated a girl for five years that I truly believed I loved, and maybe I did, but she convinced me she loved me. Turns out she had lied to me about everything about her and she had been cheating on me since the start. When I found out she had been cheating I didn't even break it...

    I've Just Realised

    I've just realised that no one really has loved me, other than my family. Then again, do they really love me, or is saying "I love you" just an overused phrase used to say "I'm used to you?" No one has admitted to liking me in real life. I see classmates at school dating others...

    It's Not Something I Will Hold My Breath For

    I don't think anyone will ever love me romantically for several reasons.I am a survivor of several past incidences of sexual abuse. It started when I was very young- only 4 years old. I won't get into the details, but the abuse continued until I was 6 years old, and then other...

    Romance
