    significant in a way

    that they will fight for me. I want someone to tell me and not be ashamed to court me, take care of me, and value my existence. It's hard to find someone like that. Sometimes I just really crave that kind of relationship. Someone who will make you feel secure about yourself...

    Yes

    What's it feel like to know if you don't call them they'll wonder what's wrong, if something is wrong they notice before you tell them, to have them want to make plans with you, to not wonder if your gonna be a memory or just gone when its all over

    Of Course I Want To, Who Doesn't?

    I am significant and I want to be significant in someone else's life. They can be anyone: your romantic partner, coworkers, family, friends and even strangers. I guess it could be random acts of kindness or going out of your way to help them. I have never been in a romantic...

    My Friend Lauren

    Throughout elementary and middle school, there was a girl in my class named Lauren. She is mentally retarded and will always have the mind of a nine year old. When I hung out with my friends, they would always pick on her and, to fit in, I would do the same. When I got away...

    And for the first time in my adult life I feel

    like I am. It isn't because of what I can do for them, but because of who I am. I am learning what it feels like to have a partner in my life, a friend, a lover and a support system. I feel safe enough to be vulnerable and am allowed to be their support system.

    It sucks when you're ignored by the person

    whose attention is the only thing you want in the world. Ever since this girl first walked into our school, I couldn’t take my eyes off her, and I know I probably wasn’t the only guy staring at her either. Through my mind, I was thinking, "you know what, I'm gonna try to...

    To Much To Ask For?

    I don't think it's to much to ask for that you are significant to someone else, that somewhere in the world there is one person who cares if they've heard from you today, that worries if you're all right. We shouldn't have to go through life insignificant to the world.

    Sometimes I wish there was someone there.

    Someone who at any time I could talk to, I could hit up just for a chat. Someone who I could lean my head on, someone who I can care deeply for and the same for me. I feel as though I am just unable to do that. Not only bc no one likes me like that, but because I have trouble...
