    Past Experiences Have Had A Lasting Effect On Me...

    I'm the type of person that only requires one thing: Love/Attention. Everything else is not a care in the world to me. I've been dating this guy and he has made me the happiest person in the world when we're together. When we're not, because he has a life, friends, job, family...
