    I am not an easy person to know.

    I am awkward often when I meet people. I do better with people who like to talk about themselves so I do not have to do much talking. I like to be there for people. It is hard for me to let them be there for me. Every once and awhile someone will come into my life and it is...

    I'm shy. And for some reason the general public

    looks upon that like a disease or something. I get the occasional friendly person and it just brightens my day. But I also like just watching the person too, to get a 'feel' for them. The people that I'm very close to...we just click. I don't think anyone can be close with a ton...

    I think it is because I am

    so quiet. Plus I tend to avoid large groups. I usually end up being the person listening to everyone else's conversation quietly and not saying anything. I don't like when people repeat themselves.

    One reason is because I am a little on the shy

    side. The other reason is because I don't trust everybody. You have to show me you are a worthy person so to speak. I have opened up to people before and they turned out to be anything but a friend. Therefore I have to feel you out first.

    Truth About Me

    I'm terrified of being hurt again, and I'm a pretty weird person who doesn't mesh well with a lot of the people in my area, so I don't meet people. I don't talk to people in real life- only online. And when one of my online friends wants to meet me in real life I become terrified...

    Everything Ends Sometimes.

    Ever since I was little, I've been constantly let down by people I was close to...My dad left, my mom pushed me too hard, the people that i thought were my friends left me behind.Sometimes I just feel like I was meant to be alone.Alone by myself, the only person I can count on...

    I Truly Care, I Just Don't Always Show It.

    Ok, before I start, this is for everyone on EP, especially my circle. I'm sure you have noticed from speaking to me that I do not open up immediately, and I won't open up immediately. In my past, I have been let down by people I trusted countless times and now I just can't trust...

    i may be hard to get close to

    but once i let you in you are not going anywhere you become a person of need and interest. I will cling to you and sob when you leave. I either hate you or love you.

    I have no idea how to talk to people.

    And I like that. So please, if you would like to get close to me, please respect my high levels of privacy. But due note: I will still let you be part of my life. I just have a weird way of doing so. I will take eons to respond to any sort of messaging. I might act like a cold...

    Me Too

    I have been hurt, I am scared, and I don't want to up. All this adds up to being closed off. So I am hard to get to know because I don't want it to happen again. I don't want to pick up the pieces and try to fit them together, again. It sucks! If you do ask me to open up, if...

    Hurting The Ones You Care About

    A little while ago I hurt someone I care about because a story that I wrote made him think that I was out looking for someone, and this isn't the case. In my last story called, 'I am a hard person to get close too';  I talked about a certain type of man that I would like to come...

    I'm not much of a people person,

    but I guess it's because I've always been used & thrown away. Also having Selective Mutism doesn't help, but no one even listens to me when I do speak so why try. Trust is something that takes time to build & if you're not going to make an effort why should I?

    It is not because I am afraid of getting hurt

    or any of that bull ****. I am just different. I think differently than most. Feel differently. So there have been times I have opened up and it just doesnt seem to work out. I am not upset about it..its just life. Maybe someday my time will come. Some other person out there...

    Arms Length

    Trust is something I don't take lightly. It's hard for anyone to climb of the barrier of lies. The barrier no one has succeed to conquer but two. I have secrets as anyone does, but you'll merely know only my name, and basic information. I won't go into to details, but my past...

    Because people are very unpredictable

    and shifty which makes trust a dangerous thing. Fortunately I believe there is more good than bad because my life has been impacted by amazing human beings and random acts of kindness

    It's Not Even On Purpose.

    I'm just... an onion. I am layers. layers upon layers of relational style, inspirations, interests, fears, dreams, vices... I choose which layer to present at which time. But it takes so very long for anyone to see more than one layer, if ever. And it's not because I don't want...

    Too Much.

    I open up.. let you in.. you can taste the weakness on the tip of your tongue. How I put my walls down so instantly before. Then I get hurt. Someone always cheats. Uses harsh words. ***** me up. In other words it's not going to happen again. There was this one man I was with...

    This is especially true on this website.

    I have found that i expect all men to be the same unfortunately. they want one thing. they don't realize there are so many different facets to me. you can't have one without all the rest.
