    I feel like I have to be in a relationship to

    have sex or do anything period. I'm so prude without the title.. But what is this title ? I feel I just use it to avoid judgement.. I find it way more thrilling to not know a guy inside and out and every breath he's ever taken and how that felt for him. I never act on these...

    Pretty Panic

    So long story short my boyfriend has VERY attractive girl friends. Though I'm not worried that he likes them or would ever do anything to hurt me, I do worry that he thinks they are prettier than me. I know it shouldn't matter because he's with me and not them. But it does bother...

    Rawr!

    The main reason why I don't care much for dating is because I'm tired of the drama associated with dating.
