    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...
