    I have a boyfriend and he is amazing.

    I hate to say this but he was everything Patrick wasn't. Patrick and I are good friends now but I will never be able to feel for him anymore the way I feel for my boyfriend. Abut it seems like they were both missing the factor of me. Understanding

    It'S Just Not Going To Happen

    I want to be understood by just one person for once in my life. Someone who truly gets the real me, who's honest and not just after one thing...and we all know what that means ;) someone who I can really talk to and in return will open up to me. But let's face it, there's no such...

    Does anyone like me have psychotic depression?

    I would be good to talk to someone who does, since being diagnosed I've not come across someone who does..

    Being straightforward is a characteristic I

    really appreciate in person. I don't like games and I don't like drama. I shy away from people who I think have cruel intentions. I am not a prude and I'm all for fun and games, but I also know there is more to life then sex. Don't get me wrong, I love sex and all that comes...

    When You Believe

    I've felt alone for years. I've lived in that sad pitiful world that I made for myself, consisting of heartache, loneliness, sadness and self pity. Oh, I didn't advertise it. People didn't know I felt that way, but if you looked really closely you could see that tiny squint of...

    Feeling stupid for thinking it was real!

    I'm confused about so much.

    About my feelings. About my emotions. About what to do. Who could understand such a cornucopia of pain and happiness and confusion? I don't even understand myself. I'm tired of wanting to be happy but every time I almost reach that point, it all falls apart. Depression is no...

    What is it about people?

    They rush to pigeonhole you, and they move on. It's like EP people. The majority might just add you, ogle your photos, then ignore you the rest of the time. They don't want to try understand you, of how your life differs from theirs. They don't worry about understanding you...

    Traces of you linger,

    But I'll settle for just one person who truly understands. Not someone who says they understand when they don't really.

    Most of the times I'm dumb,
