    I am an introvert, I find it hard to talk to

    new people, I just don't know what to say. But I want people to be interested in me. I wasn't someone to be fascinated about me and want to know everything about me. Does this make me selfish?

    ...But the way I am is generally what people

    frown upon. I am a queer individual; that is, I identify outside of gender and sexuality norms. That being said, I am not monogamous either. It can be difficult for me to open up to people and trust them because there's that underlying fear of rejection. The media has portrayed...

    I want guys to accept me

    for me; for my quirky personality and my annoying laugh. I don't like heels and dresses. I'm a jeans, t shirt and slipper girl. I want guys to accept that I burp out loud sometimes for fun and am far from perfect. I want guys to accept my body. I am not a size 5 and I don't care...

    Survival

    All my life I've felt rejected and under appreciated by most everyone. I think I'm a great person but I'm not sure if anyone sees this but myself. My question is if they ever will? All the rejection forces me to reevaluate what I may be doing wrong and if I am interesting enough...
