  1. Introductions and Welcomes
    Wow, it seems so obvious no that I see all the symptoms in B&W, but my reluctance to accept it all these years has rendered me powerless in a sense, living in denial, until NOW! I am 30, attractive etc, and have never had a boyfriend! My friends have come to accept this about me, but I know it's...
  2. Therapy
