Speaking

some guys are good for some girls. For example, they are tall and rich and handsome, but I don’t like them as well. I don’t agree with you about I have a high standard for guys. It’s just about the feelings. If the feeling is wrong, the guy is wrong. I never met a Gemini boy as a boyfriend.

In our lives, besides my friends, only the colleagues have a chance as your boyfriend. I know some guys like me in my company, but only one guy as my boyfriend 3 months ago, but we broke up. I made a mistake, I want to challenge myself, but I screw it. We became colleagues, everything go back.

I’m a little bit sorry for us, we are match each other, but the timing is wrong, the place is wrong, so everything is wrong. If you break with some guys, it means they have some problems, so why we are go back.
