    Insecure

    I don't let myself do the things I love because I'm so scared of what people think of me. I love to sing, and act. I'm pretty good but I get so scared in front of people wondering what they think that I always psyche myself out... if I just knew they thought I was good, I could...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    If Only I Could Google It

    It's gut wrenching at times and harder than one can imagine. Sometimes I'm drawn to the pain I get from it. Sorry I broke the rules..that was two sentences.
