Nothing worst than being with someone who doesn’t see you anymore. They stare at a computer screen for hours as you see together in the same too; they bury their head in the morning paper so they don’t have to look at you or talk; they stair at the TV rather than look ar you sitting by their side; they stare out the windshield in the car put a CD in so they can sing as you are in the car so you won’t have to talk. But let an attractive person go by. They notice, they almost get whiplash from staring and following all across the room. They don’t see you, they don’t want you. Why oh why continue to stay?
