Afraid of disappointment in love
Posted on: 02/05/2008
'Ello! I've recently been reading some really wonderful books. The problem is they are always romance or have some tiny sliver of romance stuck in there. I absolutely love the series, I couldn't possibly think of stopping them. The problem is, I now have high expectations. I want a guy to be all protective and kind and absolutely perfect. I have never been in a real relationship, and I am afraid i'll be disappointed.
Love in books is always so wonderful - and I think you should not settle for anyone less than protective and kind. Sadly most people are not perfect, but when we love them, we see them as perfect, so it all works out! I have always thought teenage boys should read the books that teenage girls read - so they know what is expected!
Do not hurry into love - it will find you. Have you read the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer? Enjoy the dream!
