I'm hurting. I'm happy, but my past is hurting my future. Past relationships have tainted my prospective lovers.
I'm a romantic. I want to travel across the country to see my soul mate, but I don't want to be disappointed. Am I too serious about this? What if this person doesn't feel for me the way I feel for him? Why must I fall so quickly? I wish I could be more flippant. I'm so tired of being hurt.
