I guess this is only something that a loveless person can say and I hope you won't take it against me but... "Men are simple and full of themselves." Of course, they have great and endearing qualities as well. I don't hate them, really, it's just the idea of women getting all negatively worked up because of a guy is just tiring to watch. And this is probably influenced by some random movie I just watch.
Anyway, life isn't like the movies where you can expect an ending, a happy one most of the time. Reality can really punch you in the face and knock you out if you're not careful especially with something as overrated as being loved or to love someone.
If you're single and you've a clear mind on what guy you want, what do you think should he be? Surely, he's not overbearing, selfish, rude and insensitive. You'd go for sweet, loving and faithful. For people seeing someone special or for married folks, you found an individual worth keeping.
I don't normally give in to my sad emotions but I can't help thinking why it's hard for me to let go and let someone love me, or to take the chance of being with someone dear. I have issues, I know, and writing about it here like a girl writing on her diary is just shameful. Ha-ha. At any rate, it helps.
