    I have had my heart broken more like shattered.

    I spent eight years of my life loving someone unconditionally...all to find out he didn't love me back. I gave him my heart and he broke it. He lied to me and always promised he would never hurt me. Told me he loved me and would never leave me. Told me he wanted to spend his...

    You Know, Usual Stuff Like Self Doubt, Once Bitten, Twice Shy.

    But is it really so bad if I'm comfortable alone? I know I don't want to be a parent, I've always paid my own way, I love having a whole bed to myself, and, I'd dread the idea of doubling the amount of family celebrations and events in my schedule. Besides, I'm better the devil...

    One day I may, but right now,

    my heart is picking up the pieces. I spent 18 years with the same person. I'm still apprehensive to let people in. I can't understand how it's difficult for people to take their time to get to know you. It seems like the minute they meet you, they want your entire life story...

    Big Concrete Walls

    I'm a male musician, have a lot of attention from females. That's really good, I like the attention. But when it's getting cozy and close, I'm doing something stupid to get rid of her, before I get attached (mostly when it's still in flirt-mode). I'm attracted to kind of "girls...
