    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".

    than be in a bad relationship. What about you? I know eventually I will say "Love to love you, Baby." again in a joking way, but when are eyes meet, she knows it is true. :) Until that day comes, I'll be fine living my life in solo flight.
