I Agree.I am a *very* private person. It is not so much that I dislike people, but I am shy and get used alot. In most relationships and friendships, I find I put in more than I get back.
For example, in law school my best friend and I were as opposite as could be. She was a ******** and I could barely bring myself to have sex with the lights on. However, in the first year, we bonded quickly. However, as the years went by, I was putting more into the friendship. I was giving her all my study materials and she was barely returning my calls. The result was a big rift in our relationship that we are just now beginning to patch.
In relationships too, I get used. My ex boyfriend had a son and I was child free then. I would babysit all night while he was at the bar after work (where he was cheating on me, I later found out.) So yeah, I don't want people too close. Not to be rude, but many are not worth my time.
Actually, I confide more in you guys on here. Don't laugh; I know that's pathetic!!
