    I don't want a boyfriend

    or someone to flirt with. Honestly, I'm just on here looking for friends. But all the people that do flirt with me do it on the internet. What happened to old fashioned flirting? Like seeing someone out in public and randomly striking up a conversation or exchanging phone...

    I just want to be swept off my feet.

    Is that even a thing anymore? Was it ever? Is it just something in fairy tales? Does real romance even exist?

    It seems like only the bitchy girls get

    that though. I have always been the sweet, doting girlfriend who does anything for her man and I get nothing in return. I'm always the one who is unappreciated, undervalued, ignored, cheated on. I do my best and still somehow I'm not enough. Maybe it's time I stop trying so...

    Confused

    i don't know anything about romance. i've never had a romance. and i don't know how to be romantic. i am really at a loss. enough people have written about it and talk about it. but it seems so vague and distant to me. i don't know how to learn or what to change.

    Where Are You?

    Romance in my life, where have you gone? Seems like yesterday I was surrounded with the flowers, words of comfort, amazing plans and promises for the future that tag alone with you, yet when he left, it seems like he took it all away. Romance in my life, I need you back.

    I love romance but think its dead in our house.

    I dont want money spent..a meal made by you, a bubbly bath run, laid in your arms watching something together or a loving massage..nothing big but it would be lovely once im a while ( or even once will be a start)
