Hi. My name is Symphony and Im still a virgin, sadly. I mean, Ive had crushes, Ive had ex-boyfriends and others, but they didnt do anything. Hell, I even befriended a slut in high school, but the guys that she brought were disgusting. I dont know how she even dealt with them, but then again, she didnt have any morals herself. I mean, why would she be a slut if she had sense? Sluts dont have sense; I mean, thats unheard of! Then again, I was looking for lovebecause all I ever wanted was love, almost the type of love my dad gives me but without the whole hes related to me thing. Yeah, my dad is related to me, so he has to be nice to me. My dad is paying my bills while Im in school. For that I am grateful for him. I love him to death even though he watches soap operas, General Hospital to be exact. Does he know that I watch soap opera clips on YouTube? No, he doesnt need to know.
