    It's really the only way

    for me to know you. I don't want to know who you think you should be, I want to know who you are. I am a great friend, but I can't be a friend if you aren't honest and sincere with me.

    I admire what is real

    and not fake. I am honest with people to a fault. If you ask me I will tell you my honest answer, being dihonest is not something within me and when I say something I am doing so with sincerity as thats what makes me who I am as a person. You should always be you, the good...

    i hate when people don't type out the entire

    word. It's not the complicated. The right way "How are you?" The retarded way "How r u/ hru" Gosh. That bugs me so much!

    I tend to like feisty people

    who tell it how it is to your face. I'm not into"beat around the bush" people... or gossipy people, or talk behind your back people..

    You need to be able to stand

    before God's judgment clear in conscience to then know what He has in store for you now you have lived this life and done good! Simplistic? Think about just kindness. If you are truly kind the idea above is doable.

    Best memory of living in BullShoals Arkansas.

    .. The rolling thunderstorms. Echoes so beautifully timed by nature and nothing more. Simplicity is a wondrous force.

    Honest people answer you in ways sometimes not

    quite expected. They capture your attention, in a world where little lies permeate everything, for the sake of ego and image. Sincere people are fearless. They captivate you, with their singlemindedness.

    These are rare traits of character these days,

    but I know they are still present in this world. I know of a few persons with these traits. I also possess them. I think being insincere and dishonest takes too much energy. Better to be truthful and attract like minded individuals.

    from my last boyfriend. I have already found there are lots of people on here who aren't who they say they are. It's intriguing as to what they are seeking by their postures.

    A sincere person is honest

    and always keeps their word. The word "sincere" comes from the Latin word "sincerus" which means "clean and pure". The ancient Greek word for "sincerity" carries a similar meaning. The Greeks made clay statues which they baked in kilns, and these usually emerged with small...

    I believe if you're honest God will guide you to recognize lies right away. I can detect lies or false statements by eye contact or even reading someone's statements. Let's all be honest and be true. The world has so much pains because people lie, cheat and betray, let's not...

    honest. I don't lie and expect others to do the same of course that doesn't always happen so it's good to be cautious and not put so much trust into anyone you haven't known too long. :) x

    I was taught to admire being honest

    and have sincerity when talking, chatting, and writing to others. I have passed those wonderful traits on to my own kids. I am sure my grandkids will learn these ideas from my kids when they are older.

    and sincerity? It's hard and difficult. It takes so much more to look in a mirror at the true image and not what you think you are. It's difficult to know who love and why you love them. Do you love them because they love you or are there genuine feelings there? Do they make...

    I really dislike it when people make up things.

    It doesn't make me feel comfortable being around them. I'm aware that some things are better left unsaid, but making up really large stuff about yourself just won't get me to feel any good around you. I think this is just my opinion though. I always wanted people to be honest...
