    Never getting hurt again.

    Never getting lied to. Never getting used. Never have someone pretend to love me again. That all sounds pretty good right now.

    As time goes on and I interact with people,

    I realize men are truly stupid. You have to spell everything out for them. They make excuses for everything too. Only by the grace of God can a man truly be smart but even that isn't a given. MaybeI need to tie down my hormones or something. i seriously need to be asexual...

    You know what I f**king hate? When I was single AND wanted to be in a relationship and get married (which I only believed because I had been told implicitly since birth that that is the way you have to live your life), no one ever said, "You may feel that way now, but you may...

    Burden

    Part of the reason why I want to be single forever, is because I don't want to be a burden on someone. I am almost certain that I will have dementia, or some form of debilitating disease like that one day, and I don't want anyone to have to suffer through it too. Unfortunately...
