"Dating someone new is nerve wrecking. I haven’t been on a proper date in ages and the process of getting to know someone new on a romantic level all over again is out of my comfort zone. I hate spending time and emotional effort on someone that may not even come. I value close relationships with people very highly, romantic ones or not, so it is such a big loss for me when I end up empty handed. I just don’t let anyone get under my skin, I handpick very carefully." J.F
