    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...

    Never Know

    I never know if they are for real or not. I have had so many bad experiences that I almost find it easier to stay out of relationships then to be in them.

    Rawr!

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

    I Choose Oscar Wilde

    I have always felt communicating effectively is if not the hardest, one of the hardest ,  things to do in a relationship. There are so many factors involved: age, sex, language education, status, power, culture, politics, religion, and the fact that the other person...

    Relationships Are the Hardest Thing In Life

    Where to start?  I find relationships, just not with your loved ones, but even with family very difficult. I've had a very strange life.  I had a estranged relationship with my father; he was both physically and verbally abusive.  At the age of 17 it climaxed...

    Is Chivalry Dead?

    What happened to honesty and fidelity? Where did men who are masculine yet compassionate go? The good women/men get burned so bad that we don't want to reach out anymore. If a good thing comes along we are so wrapped up in our depression that would wouldn't know it if it came up...

    Over Done

    I feel that when if comes to relationships that I over give. I'm the one who thinks about the little things... ex little notes/reminders, flowers, cards, etc. I'm the one that remembers to call, I'm the one that cries over it. Maybe it's that I'm the only one interested in making...

    It's difficult being with someone who's the opposite of you but yet love as much as I do. It does get frustrating for the fact we show each other our love different ways.
