You’re Telling Me the Perfect Man Does Not Exist?

This is not me, but it might as well be.

People tell me I am too picky. I really just refuse to settle for an off-brand partner. I decided I never would after I developed my first crush 19 years ago to realize not all cute boys are funny. Since then, I have chosen to live an independent lifestyle until I discover a version of someone who is worth wasting my time. What I want is simple, so I really don’t understand why it has been so difficult.
