    It's Really Just True Love

    Yes... True Love is just that....true. If a huge lie passes my partners lips, I feel betrayed. First and foremost, the lover I choose must not deceive my heart. Everything else grows from there.

    Do I Ever!

    I know what I deserve, want, and need alright. A lot of the time though, in every relationship I've been in thus far has lacked one of those. Whether it may be my deserve, my want, or my need. I wonder if it's possible to have all of these taken care of at once? *daydreams*

    All I ever truly wanted from a relationship.

    . Was to be there for someone to show someone how it feels to be loved. That's the true beauty of a relationship. To give someone your all and your commitment. To have their needs on your mind at ALL times. So many failed attempts. When you start realizing that you don't get the...
