Hey everyone,

I've just been reading a lot of these threads and couldn't help but smile at seeing all these thoughts in my head being said by a lot of you.

First off, I'm a 19 year old female, 5w6 (I think) in Canada. Youngest of a family of six, I now live with my mom who's a 9, and I absolutely adore her. I could care less about my father, an 8.

As for relationships, I'm in a long distance relationship with a 7. We'll spend a week or a weekend or two a month, and it's been good as far as having my time and space to myself. I'd say I'm in love. It seems like I fall in and out of love fairly quickly though. And it's never as intense as my first love was, something I don't think I'll feel again, or completely get over. But who knows, I'm still young.

My main reason for posting, is that I often go through long periods where I don't really feel anything. I'm blank. I don't feel inspired whenever I try to write, or nothing flows out of me as I play guitar. I'm stuck in this rut, and I'm not sure how to deal with it.

And of course, there's the usual issues of being alone despite being in a relationship. Which as a 5, I've pretty much accepted by now.

What do you 5's do when you're incapable of feeling?

I'd like to feel again.
