    not only because I am beautiful,

    but because I have a good and a caring heart. I don't know what seems wrong but almost men I get in to a relationship always betray me. I often feel I am never enough.

    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)

    Did you ever think that it is possible to sleep

    with someone without having a physical relation? Just laying there, talking for hours about how we feel, what we love, memories etc. Just enjoying to be with someone.

    Only a few times in life have I felt one

    or the other, and even more seldom - both. I think I am a good idea. But the reality of me leaves others in the dust. Inevitably, to avoid being lonesome, I begin to become someone I hope is loveable. Then I become lost and lonlier than I was when alone.
