    Settle? That's What Food Does In Transit!

    I Waited Too Long

    There is no way I would settle for the first girl that smiled at me after two and a half years, although she would have been happy about that, lol!

    Lesson Learned

    I did it once. I married him. I'll never do it again. I didn't know any better back then. I thought this was what love was. He loved me, and in my mind, he was the only one who ever would, so I had to marry him. Who else could possibly want me. I locked him in. I didn't...
