Preface

I was never the girl who was one to stand out, I was never the pretty one. I was an outsider in some forms, sure I had had friends once upon a time but times have changed pulling me along with them, the girl who at 28 still hadn't had her first kiss. Maybe because I wasn't pretty, maybe because I wasn't meant to find that someone special or maybe, just maybe because I had my head stuck in the clouds, stuck in thoughts and imagination rather than in reality where in life I was a geek, one who loved to read – going to bookshops every other day and always leaving with something or other. I was the girl you didn't take a second glance at, someone you'd accidentally stumble upon. At the age of 18 I think I truly gave up believing that I’d ever find that someone. Because I was the girl you didn't want to be caught with.
I remember a long time ago when I once believed in love – my mum used to tell me stories and I used to dream about finding my prince charming. That's when I really got into the reading, later on it was because I could escape reality and become whoever I wanted to be in the next few hours, rather than little old me. I never really did open up to show people the real me. I was never your typical average pretty, sweet little girl. Oh no I was far from it. I was the kid that was into school, getting the grades, achieving my goals. Never really caring about what others thought and saw. Truth is I never even tried to look pretty, I really didn't see the point. After that I never expected to find love, after all who'd love me? I wasn't the type of girl you just happened to fall in love with.
Mum used to say there's a man out there for everyone, but I'm not so sure, I lost all reason to believe, but every guy is different. I'm not looking for love but I'm not saying I don't want it. Maybe I might find love one day, but for now I’m happy just the way I am.
