    I met someone and the butterflies are gone.

    I'm a little shocked how I lost interest so quickly. Although I am not a picky person, I don't think I should have to settle either. I realize now that I like some elements of this guy but not the whole package. I just can't see myself being more than friends with this guy and...

    Staying Or Going?

    I think I am going to delete this account.  I don't know what to do about this.  It's like one side of me wants Bella, another side of me doesn't want to be on EP ever again.
