I’m a true Scorpio woman.
I’m intense, I’m deep and passionate and I don’t do grey areas. I like to know what’s what…only because I like to be sure of things. I have drive and ambition and I’m willing to sacrifice for what I want. But what really reminds me of my Scorpio nature is the way I approach love.

So even though I had all this love flowing out, it was not always reciprocated.
