I’m tired of having to convince you that I don’t care too much. I remember your birthday and your brother’s name  but that’s no reason to put up such a fight.   I can decide if I want my own heart broken. You don’t need to protect me from yourself. Take me off your heavy shoulders  I’ll be my own…

How are you still single?

When you’re out in the dating world, a time or two you’ll probably hear this: How do you not have a boyfriend already?

Should you give advice to failed daters?

I’ve been on LOTS of first dates over the years and after a while they can really start to just blur together. But a few stick out to me and one is this guy who I went out to dinner with. During dinner I realized he wouldn’t be a match for me but after dinner we ended up taking my…

I’m only giving the energy that I receive

I’m tired of chasing after guys and tired of continuing to talk to guys who aren’t giving me the love and respect I deserve. So if you don’t answer my text for 4 days, guess when you’re getting…
