Why Some Men Give Up Their Identity In A Relationship
My heart needed a break and I didn’t want to be jaded. I didn’t want to become cold-hearted. So I knew I had to give it up for a while. It didn’t matter if they were “good guys,” or the famous “not like other guys.” This was too much for me.

I’m too ready to fall back into a comfort zone or at least a regular getting laid schedule along with some semblance of them pretending to actually care about me.
