Why does everythin have to be romantic, why can't I just have platonic friends who I can do all these activities with? The things I am interested and would like to do with a particular friend of mine, say that friend can't or is not interested (or able) to do these things wiht me, (move up north, go boating, etc), then why can't I just do it with other people and not have it romantic (with them)?
Why is there so much emphasis on romance all the time? I don't want everything to be 'romance' stuff. I want to be able to move up north and live the life I want and do all the activites I want and not have to get stuck in any of this 'romance' crap (meaning with someone other than that one friend of mine). I would rather be "string-free". I just want to live this life and be happy.
I am only willing to do the "string/romance" thing (other than that one person) as a *last* resort. If my friend was not able, and there was no other option, then I would only pursue my last resort only if it were my last choice, very, very last, very - all I would like really, is just to live this simple, simple, simple, simple life I am interested in. That's all. Nothing too difficult, or hard, just plain simple and simplisitic. That's all.
However, being that so simple, why would it be that so hard to ask for/ attain?
