what i learned: - i need monogamy - i need to be with someone who makes an effort to make me feel special and wanted. - sometimes there are thoughts/feelings that i need to keep to myself until i'm absolutely sure about them.. because jumping the gun and telling all isn't really honesty if it turns out to not be true a few days later, and it just gets me into so much trouble. - i'm an open-minded person when it comes to what other people want to do with their lives, but when it comes down to it i have pretty traditional values. my relationships need to be between me and that other person, not anyone else. i need someone who actually wants to be with me and only me, and doesn't need anything from anyone else [not in the relationship sense anyway]. i want to not need to go looking for attention from other people because i'm not getting enough of it from the person i'm dating.
