A part of her really does want to give love another chance. But between her last few failed relationships, and there being a drought in qualified men that she has to choose from, she just finds it easier to stay to herself until the moment feels right. For once, it would be nice to have a man come around her without the intent of using and abusing her. For once, it would be nice to laugh for hours and hours at a time with some good company. She keeps her guard up not to make it hard on anyone but, to give herself more time when making an important decision. She understands more than ever that her heart is on the line and that she is getting tired of starting over. She wants to be happy, and she is willing to wait as long as it takes until that special man walks into her life and makes her life feel complete.
