    Wish I Could Read Your Mind

    Stop And Stare

    OK so I had to go to the doctors office for my little neice, who I have 98% of the time. They know that I take care of her so even though I am not her mother its okay for me to take her to the doctor(benifit of a small town). But when I got there this woman was stareing me and...

    Here's Your Sign

    I seriously wonder sometimes how many friendships with women I've ruined because I thought the innocent flirting was a sincere invitation to explore the romantic possibilities between us. On the other hand, how many times I have I passed up the opportunity to date a woman...

    Insecure

    If Only I Could Google It

    Would Be Helpful

    Then I'd know whether people actually like me or not and I would end up spending hours worrying about it... and I'd know whether I'm wasting my time talking to certain people still.

    It'd Be Cool.

    Yeah it would be cool. I'd like to know, if I greet someone and say hi, what their thoughts are on me. I mean no matter what I would not change myself for the world, but it'd be nice to know. Or if I talk to a girl, using Vonnie for example, not that she'd say this, I'd...
