    Just like many people on EP I do want a loving

    relationship. I'm just not in a rush and also am enjoying my time being single. I believe it takes patience to be rewarded with one. Also, being too picky hasn't worked for 3 of my friends that are over 40 years old lol. I've seen them pass up some good catches. I guess...

    Tip: when you are looking

    for a companion, do not worry about whether he/she likes you. Only worry about how he/she makes you feel. Stop trying to make everyone like you and actually find someone that makes you feel wonderful. Don't even look at outer beauty because attractive people can make you feel...

    It's all I could ever want out of a girl

    that I love dearly. It's something I've wanted since I've ever picked up an interest for girls. All that ever happens is that my heart gets broken pretty much every time I try. I try to smile outside, but my glass heart will never be the same :( No amount of tape and glue will...

    Is it healthy to take emotional support from

    the one you love? Or will it just make them think less of you?

    I don't know what to do about my current

    relationship. We're fine, right? He lives so far away. Why did he move? Why hasn't he texted me today? Maybe I need someone else... It would break his heart if I broke up with him again.

    For once I'd like a human interaction sans all

    the drama, being put down, constantly having to defend myself or feeling like less of a person. Someone who instead purposes to put a smile on my face while I do the same for them.

    How do we loose our way... without noticing and we look up and say "How did I get here?" When did I stray from the path I imagined? I've lost my way... I've lost me.

    How does one stop past fears (and experiences)

    from getting in the way of what you have in front of you? I can't take losing one of the only people in my life that actually cares about me, but my fear of the past is pushing me away from him.

    I'm tired of wondering.

    I feel like I'm lost somewhere between science and fantasy. I just want to be with someone who sees the world the way I do. Someone who loves me for the things I love about myself. I want a partner, someone I can trust, and know that it's me and him against the world.
