What Ceremony suggested may help. Maybe Google articles on body issues. I know there are a ton of articles for women on the subject, but uh, men have body issues too. I know I did, and still do to an extent. I am short, and my girlfriend is an in

Yeah, it seems I leave a lot off my play lists. Thanks for the inspiration. I had a somewhat sad summer, my girlfriend went home for the summer. She was at college when we met. It was 3 long months. I listened to Bread a lot: About a decad
