Forever Alone?

There once was an optimistic girl. She held out hope for finding someone to love her back, they way she loved people. Not too much. Not too little. Just the right amount, that she thought was acceptable. But this was a problem. Every time she thought she found someone, they loved parts of her, or none of her at all. There were the few occassions where it seemed like holding out hope paid off, but in the end, people turned in to psychopaths or liars. She tries so hard to be what people want her to be, just so she can feel accepted, and yet the harder she tries, the more people get turned off. So she tries being herself, and people are more in to her, but she does not feel the same connection. She wants so desperately to find someone, she has her up and down moments, but always in the end she looks the same. Stupid. She wants to know exactly how guys feel about her, but she will never know, because she's not trusting enough to show what she's hiding first. This girl will search for a long time, for just one person, but it's unknown if she'll find someone. At least not yet.
