    5 years ago I married someone I knew I didn't love. I "liked" him and I needed to be married (the reason is too long to explain) at the time so I did it and I thought liking him would be enough. Well, we didn't even have sex on our honeymoon and as time has gone by...

    I'm too weird. Too much. No one can love someone like me. Self-destructive, insecure, eating disordered, depressed, anxious... The good in me is overshadowed by my darker side.
