    Wants Me For Me

    I want someone who wants me for me..not because they just broke up with someone else & they are just lonely. I hate the fact that some people just "settle" for someone because they don't want to be alone. Believe me, I have thought about it in the past...but I want that crazy...

    But I Have Been My Whole Life

    I feel like with everyone I care about, I always come second. No one ever puts me first. I'm everybody's second girl. I'm everybody's next choice if they're first one doesn't work out or something else happens with the first one. In any kind of relationship, I'm there to...

    Why I Don't Want A Relationship

    I don't want to be "played" or hurt in any way like that. I don't trust anyone, so it prevents me from dating and other stuff.The most I have is sex with someone & then they have sex with others, so it isn't like I'm special.Soo, yeah.

    It all seems to hurt. It's never just one mistake.. it's never just one heartbreak. what's done is done, I don't want to talk about it. I rather let it go than just forget.
