    It's horrible to say,

    the consequence is if I leave I'm alone.. but what's the difference when you beg for love? I've been with my fiancé/boyfriend for about 3 years now and honestly it's like I'm single. I'm constantly being hit on by guys, his friends or strangers and he doesn't seem to mind it...

    It really sucks. ._. But unfortunately I'm socially awkward, I don't go out much, and I don't know how to flirt. So thus, I'm stuck with the single life.
