    I Want You To Get This Straight

    I consider myself a loyal person. I have done things in the past I'm not proud of. I have played with fire and learned my lesson. But it stays in the past I'm a changed person. I'm in a new relationship and value it. I know I come here and make some good friends I have talk to...

    Sick if being judged

    for trying to help people and be friendly. Why do people have to think that there's an ulterior motive to being friends with someone if offering to help ??

    I Hate Those Certain People...

    I hate when your being nice to someone and all of a sudden their all over you. It's like what are you doing?! 'Your the one that was flirting with me!' No! It's called being nice to someone, if you don't know what that is then you need to be around nicer people.

    I'm Usually Pretty Clear

    I am very cautious with how much affection I show to guys. For the most part I am rather successful with keeping a professional distance from them. But I am also a friendly person that will use endearments in my speech at times. Such as hun,  this is not to be misconstrued as...

    I like when girls think I'm flirting with them

    when I'm just talking to them. Once they make it obvious that they think I like them by making a face or saying something snotty it helps me know to stay away from them and their giant egos

    Why Can't He Tell The Difference?

    Over spring break I encountered a problem. I have an admirer. I should be happy right? Well I'm not. He is not the kind of guy I am looking for but, he sure thinks so. I met him in one of my classes this semester. He was the only one who would talk to me and so I became more...

    My Friend (20) Was Flirting With Me.

    This happened last year at a hotel during an event held every year. I was 16 years old and she was 19 years old. This is how it started. It first started by her asking me to go into a parking garage because she wanted to light a smoke. She didn't have any great friends because...
