    Yes, I guess it has been "way too long" now.

    I do not even know how it came to be so long. Time has just passed very promptly. At first it was all about healing, then becoming more healthy then it was about work. Now, I no longer even know what it's about lol. Sometimes I wonder if I may not simply always be this way. I...

    never been kissed and never gone on a proper date. My friends say I'm the ultimate good girl since I don't party and drink either and that I'd rather read my books than spend time with a boy. I'm not boring like my hobbies suggest, I actually get along well with a lot of people...

    I don't usually date a long time

    because I am sometimes too impatient in relationships. Some guys get scared. I talk a lot and they want other things to happen. I split up from my last boyfriend in the summer. I have just been "helped out" by friends with some "relief".

    Things would be so much easier

    and life better if men and women had more respect and kindness for each other. Imagine how much more fun we would have together without any abuse and hard feelings. Being safe and comfortable with each other would be like heaven. :)
