I don't think it's necessarily healthy to go into relationships as a needy person. Better to go in with a full deck.
Where there is age there is evolution, where there is life there is growth.
I do like the ocean wave, actually. I'm born under the sign of Cancer - the sign of the crab - so I like coastal areas and sunny beaches and such - although not the wide-open and deep seas.
