    0
I’m an indecisive person. It’s not because I don’t have opinions. And no, I don’t have commitment issues. I’m just an over-thinker. Case in point: unless I have a specific craving, I have to read at least six menus before I can even consider ordering takeout. When Pablo (boyfriend) is not around, I often don’t eat at all.
