No. I find that the less I expect from others, the less I'm disappointed.

The worst case scenario would be you marrying me, willingly. Which, I assume, would make you completely out of your mind.

Being friends is the most important part of any love relationship. Perhaps you have been dating all of the wrong men...

You are skeptic and you have a very good reason to be. There's nothing I can do. Nobody can ever turn a skeptic into a believer. At least, I can't. I feel remorse for not being able to do stuff, which is also a bloody counter-intuitive thing to do. But, we all have our burdens.

Coming to terms with sexual abuse. My anger turned inward and I was on a mission to kill myself. I got past it, but for a long while, I didn't see myself living past the age of 23.

Thank-you but I am never past it. It's more like I learn to live with it without killing myself.

Life is a blessing we have all have moments of feeling down just remember we all have someone who loves and cares for us that's worth living for.

At a Marine Corps Ball one year, I attended with a Korean War Marine who had fought at Chosin. In a series of engagements that they made as part of their retrograde movement, his company was tasked with one of the flanks positions which entailed that they sweep the crest of the connecting hills of enemy to keep the lane clear. At some point they came to this one hill that was being hotly contested. They charged the hill and made the crest before he and his company were driven back off by an overwhelming Chinese force, only to have he and his fellow Marines regroup and charge back up and drive them off again. This seesaw battle went on for most of the day and each time, they came back to their step off point with fewer and fewer Marines and ammunition.
They were ordered up the hill once again and, at this point he knew "this was it," he said. He didn't expect to come back down. They formed up and stepped off again in to the whirlwind when, at that same moment, Corsairs came in right over their heads and blew the Chinese off the hill for good.

Concluding the story, he turned to me and said, "after that, when I came home and got out, I never figured any day would offer me anything so insurmountable again that I couldn't handle it." "Gravy, he said." "Every day I wake up is just gravy......."

Useful instruction. I try to maintain the same outlook.
