    Not Intill Now

    I feel inadequate in my attempts to convey

    myself to him. Even though I have a passion for writing, I can't seem to find the right words to tell him what I need. Furthermore, in his ignorance, he continues to hurt me with his coldness. I love him... Even worse, all the signs line up. So I think that there is only one...

    Typical

    I don't know why. Maybe I just need to take care of people. Maybe people can read from my face that I understand heartbreak. Maybe, on some subconscious level, I attract tortured souls. I just know that I always seem to run into the damaged ones. Even my friends are never...

    If you're like that you have a big heart!

    Problem is it's a tough job to try mending or healing those people that have been hurt. The effort will pay off later in life.

    Damaged But Cute - Can I Survive?!?!?!

    What I didn't realize when I entered into this relationship was that he is damaged from his childhood. Once he said that - it kind of made me realize why I'm not 100% comfortable with him sometimes. He has serious trust issues and trust no one. He definitely sets the tone for our...
