    A Girl Can Dream

    I'm about to go home and just started fantasizing about how nice it would be to have someone there, taking care of things. I walk in and find dinner in the oven, and the kids are doing their homework. I comment on how good it smells and kiss everyone...

    I've been the responsible one

    since I graduated high school. I got a job and took on providing for my mother, brother, and girlfriend with almost no help. Now that my girlfriend has left me I feel so lost. She took care of me emotionally and that is all I had.

    Wishing On a Star

    This fits so perfectly with how I feel sometimes. I like taking care of myself most of the time, but occasionally I want to be taken care of instead. Is this wrong? I swear sometimes I feel like I'm the only adult in my life and all the others that are supposed to be adults are...

    Promise, Promise...

    People always partake of my kinds, but never ever seem to come through when I need them. It is always promise, promise but no delivery. But whenever i say anything about that, they always feel like i am just being to needy and they are way to busy in life.

    new pair of warm winter boots. In my mind, this act will demonstrate that I'm loved and cared for. Last winter, I waited too late to purchase a pair leaving only fashion boots in the store. I can't spend much time outside because my feet get cold and wet quickly in them. I could...

    I'm Just Saying...

    i do so much for others.  just once or twice a year i would love a man to take care of me.  when you live alone, you miss the feeling of security.  i haven't found any one i wish to date, and it gets difficult sometimes.

    I love being my wifes caretaker. I married her knowing she needed to be showered with love and knowing that I had an abundance of love to give her. Still, once in a blue moon, she'll have to rise up and take care of me. She does a wonderful job and I love it.

    I kind of sick of being strong all the time

    for the people around me. I listen to their problems and lend them my shoulder. I'm the one who keeps everyone else from falling apart. If I have a problem, who's going to take care of me?

    I'll never be the kind of guy she'll like,

    I'm nervous, pretentious, and I'm not too good with feelings. She's emotional, outgoing and takes things to heart a lot. We're opposites. I take care of her, whenever she's down I make her smile, when she cries, I hold her, and when she doesn't know what to do, I reassure her...

    I Dislike Being Taken For Granted

    I have spent my entire life taking care of someone else. Not physically taking care of them; emotionally taking care of them. It all began with my mom's (still) undiagnosed depression. At too young an age, my mother depended on me to take care of her: to assure her everything...

    My Facade

    As a person, I value strength and independence. I often come across as a highly assertive and strong-willed person, almost to the point of being described "arrogantly self-assured." But most of the time, I'm just hiding behind the mask i wear, covering my insecurities with self...
