    I enjoy sharing my experiences with others

    but I only share certain things. Until I get to know someone I am careful of what I share because I don't want everything out there. I feel certain things about me should only be disclosed to people that I trust such as my closest friends. I don't like to dwell on the negative...

    In an era where people seem quite happy to live

    in public, positing every minute detail of their existence online in the form of tweets, comments an posts, I find myself becoming increasingly private and guarded. I find it quite incredible that people happily plaster photos on themselves all over the internet, without pausing...

    You'll only find me on this app

    and Tumblr, imo the two most anonymous social medias. I like it.

    When it comes to conversing with people online,

    anyway. And in the sense that I do not share pics of myself right off the bat, I do not share any outside contact information and I most certainly do not share my personal information. I can't believe the nerve some people on here have, asking for my phone number or even my god...

    It's My Business

    I seem extremely expressive, but I'm actually really private and independent. I can be emotional and vulnerable, but only on my terms. I show what I want to show. It's because of this that I hate it when people pry into my private affairs. Until I choose to tell you something, my...

    Probably it soundscontradictory what I am saying here, especially because there are a couple of people on EP who knows about my real life and some think they know already everything about me. I believe we all have some mystery, some secret or even a secret life. Life passes so...

    I Can't Ever Remember ....

    Thinking about it carefully,  as far back as I can remember, I can't EVER recall being glad that I had been open and sharing of my feelings. Every time I did, I ended up being very sorry for doing it because either someone somehow used it against me or no one cared anyway. I...

    Unfortunately I Do

    I keep a lot of things to myself. If I believe it will not help anyithng or anyone, it is never revealed. I try to shut away anything that will not help anybody away inside of me. I'm the only one who knows most of me, everyone else just knows fragments and parts. No one, not...

    My privacy is one of the highest things I value.

    Even writing annonymous posts here on EP can be a real challenge for me. I have recently been trying to open up because I think having privacy as such a high value keeps people out.

    I'm not exactly a private person,

    I just don't have much to say to anyone. growing up I worked so hard to achieve different goals that I forgot to live and just have fun and experiences to remember. Now I've achieved some and I'm getting closer to others but they seem like they don't really matter anymore...

    Yes, I am. Anonymity is what I love here.

    If you ask me things I'm not comfortable telling you about, please don't hate me if I ignore you.

    Not that I am antisocial

    or even particularly shy. It's just that, if given the chance for a social engagement versus me time, I very much am comfortable in my own space and my own head. . . . . Not that I don't get a different sort of lonely even if I have friends, I don't have more.

    Too Private

    Even on an anonymous site such as this, I don't like revealing too much about myself. There are very few who know the "real" me, and those people mean the world to me. I would like to become comfortable with being more open and not posting only "fluff", and this is my first...

    I'm a very private person.

    I think what I like about this site is that I can open up and not know anyone here. My husband and I don't really talk about our private lives at work, but we do have a couple friends we work either that we will open up to. He has two really, really close friends that know...

    If...if the cost of deep meaningful

    conversations, after one month of free trial, will be charged in terms on exchanging photos, I'll just let it go and find some other free trials. My private life is not for sale with any price tag on it... Thank you very much for free trials *bites my lips with tears in my eyes...

    Sometimes I want my business to be known to

    myself. I don't mind sharing some things, but usually I like my own privacy. I'm an outgoing person and all, but I solemnly like people to know what's deep down inside. If I want to tell you, I'll tell you, but until then just let me be.

    With Facebook, Social Media,

    and the news, it seems that we have adopted the idea that we need to know each other's business all of the time. I completely disagree with this. I honestly don't care what celebrities are doing. It doesn't affect my life. I also don't care what people I know from high school...

    I've never talk about my problems,

    I talk a lot, but I don't really say anything.

    People always think they know me, know everything about me, but the fact is that they really don't. The only place I feel like sharing any of my personal, private thoughts is either in my journal or anonymously online.

    Because really, it feels way better to keep

    some things to yourself rather than let others know. Sometimes I feel like telling on others would only make the situation worse because people keep on interferring with you and shite. But it still probably depends if I really do feel like talking stuff with another person

    I just dont know how to explain about my
