    Too independent. I absolutely LOVE your list, seems like we just can’t be accepted for who we are but should sacrifice ourselves and “settle” …..not gonna happen, so here we are ….

    the last guy I dated actually sat me down and named off my “toos” It was pretty harsh. Especially when they are the worst things I think about myself, it is hard to hear it confirmed out loud by someone.
