    My Idea Of A Strong Man.

    What does it mean to be a strong man? In my humble opinion, being a strong man is more about the mental state of a man rather than his physic. Being a strong man means being your own man. You aren’t attempting to be someone else. It means doing what you can do today instead of...

    I feel like I'm never going to find the guy

    for me. I want to find a guy that doesn't want sex all the time but can still be flirty. Someone that cares for what I have to say, but will be man enough to tell me how he feels also. Am I asking to much or does that guy exist??
