On Liking Another Person

On Liking Another Person

Liking someone can sometimes seem important, but I can hardly put it as a central part of my life. I certainly do want to get married, own my own home, and have a family – that is very, very important to me, but I have a tendency not to date. It’s not because I don’t … Continue reading

On My Prior Relationships

The things listed below are the things entirely at fault of the person I was either considering being … Continue reading
