    One of the best things in life is finding

    someone who knows all of your flaws, mistakes, and weaknesses, but still thinks you're completely amazing.

    I'm 20 years old. I never had a girlfriend

    or done anything with a girl. I always feel alone and I start to think if there is something wrong with me. why can't I find someone to love and be with. someone to hold and care for.... am I not allowed to have that? am I destined to be like this?

    From a question somebody posted today: Q: Give

    me ONE reason why you're worthy to be fought for? My answer: Because once I've made up my mind that I want you, I'll stick around through the tough parts. Because if you're honest with me and give me the information I need, I am willing to do anything in my power to help you...

    Hate when you give your heart to the one person

    who you believed to be your dream partner, best friend, soul mate but along the journey you start to notice the lack of appreciation and affection which makes you unhappy. No matter how many times your actions remind them how important they are in your life, they don't seem to...

    I am a flirt. I'm flawed too,

    like most women, I need to feel attractive. I'm natural in my look, and I hardly wear much make up at all, but still I need to know and feel appreciated. Is it so wrong of me?

    I had such an amazing day with my wife yesterday

    and even though there was a situation that I typically would have stayed a fight over I kept my cool. By at the end of the night my wife got angry with me for no reason and told me how horrible of a person I am. I want my marriage to work but I'm afraid she's no longer in love...

    After 1 year of no communication with my ex,

    I've decided to reach out to her to be friends. Now I don't want to be her friend because she isn't putting her all into being friends. She doesn't deserve my friendship or me in her life at all.

    I'm just a girl. I love being called pretty,

    but I'll never believe it. I'm not always right, but hate admitting I'm wrong. I'm almost always smiling, but it's not always real. I can be read like an open book, but hide so much. I work hard at things, but don't always get what I deserve. I'm just a girl. (c)
