> man, this post speaks to me like no other. i, too, want to find a significant other, yet when that possibility arises, i sometimes sink into defeated thinking, saying to myself "this person will never be interested in me once she finds out how screwed up i am"
> however, that is just a bunch of lies. contrary to the false images portrayed on TV, the etc., the truth of the matter is that EVERYONE has ISSUES. while yours and mine may be depression or anxiety, theirs may be alcoholism, work addiction, self esteem problems from being emotionally tormented as a child, and on and on and on. one thing for sure: they are dealing with something in their life. we all are.
> so where does that leave us with love? well ... you have just got to put yourself out there on a limb. from my past experiences, ive learned things usually turn out bad if i dump all of my problems on the table at the very beginning. if i talk out things slowly over time, everything goes better.
> true love is accepting someone unconditionally, worts and all. it is out there for you, for me, somewhere.
