11. “My last relationship was in high school. I have come to find that relationships aren’t all they are cracked up to be. I think people are weak to need another human being. I’m f*cking strong for being happy on my own.”  — Margaret, 34

16. “I’ve been broken too many times. I’ve been cheated on. I’ve been hurt. I am done with men. Done. They aren’t worth a dime or a penny. They are all scumbags.” — Samantha, 26
