I’m not sure how everyone else finds love so easily, so soon after a marriage/long relationship, etc.

I just can’t get it right.

Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them.

I am scared of falling in love, of craving you every second of every day, of needing you, of being addicted to you. I am scared of missing you more than I can handle, of losing you and myself in you. I am scared of not being enough, and of seeing my insufficiency in your eyes

Love is always a demonstration - not just a set of words or a feeling.

Nothing like a woman with a brilliant mind and a filthy mouth.

Had a first date

Tuesday night, i had a first date with Mile. He’s quite the character and i’m really excited to see him again. He doesn’t fit my usual mold, but i’m proud of myself for venturing out and boy am i glad i did.

He’s fuckin hilarious. Gets my sense of humor and finds it funny. He is smart, educated, handsome, athletic, caring and has a great career.

I have a second date tonight. We’ll see where it goes! Wish me luck!

You don’t need religion to have morals. If you can’t determine right from wrong then you lack empathy, not religion.

Your naked body should only belong to those who fall in love with your naked soul.

I’ve really been struggling with lonliness lately. In 2 short months, it will have been 2 years since I freed myself of an abusive, unhealthy marriage. I would really love to date, and have met a couple men who have potential, but of course, they don’t want that with me. I’m having a hard time understandinf why the hell not. I am so awesome. Seriously, the whole package. Maybe it’s that they just aren’t quite where I am. I don’t know. I am definitely tired of one night stands just to get my fix. I’m tired of being disapointed. I give and give and give and give, with nothing in return but being dangled by a string. I just want someone who sees what I see in myself. I guess no one smart enough has come along yet. All in God’s timing.

2014. Here’s to being a little tougher and not putting up with petty bullshit from men…. Even more so than I have been the last two years. Boy oh boy, boys… You are training me well! Mr. Right is goin to be in for a REAL surprise.

I’m so awesome. Seriously, how come i can’t find a dude (one that i like) who wants my guts?

I think i scare them. Where are all the confident men at?

I love the person I’ve become, because I fought to become her.

Try to let what is unfair teach you… What is unfair can be a stern but invaluable teacher… You can be shaped, or you can be broken. There is not much in between. Try to learn. Be coachable. Try to learn from everybody, especially those who fail. This is hard.
