I Want To Be Told I Am Worth It

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 500 People

    Desire

    from thr get go you know

    whether shes worth it or not. its a gut feeling that will either make you work hard to win her affections or it will fill you with indifference. while feeling that latter is not a bad thing, we're all humans at the end of it. what you do next is what either makes you or breaks...
