    There's a saying that reads"all I want is a

    hand to hold and a heart to understand". I never really understood what that meant. But now that I do. Its true. That's all what WE all want. Just someone to be by our side through the good and bad times. Someone to make us feel like we are actually worth loving and needed. I...

    The things that drive me are poverty,

    and pain, and knowing that I don't want to end up being alone and I want to do something with my life . Basically, i just want to have someone who can be mine and be true, and be real, and give me the whole package of real HIM , nothing fake, all real.

    honestly, it does worry me a ton.

    every girl I've spoken to has had at least 1 bf by my age. I'm almost done with college, and it'll just be increasingly more difficult to find someone ??
