I Am a Tough Cookie

How and why people are just about coping with life 152 People

    Well... Let'S See...

    I think I am naturally a tough person and my ideas are just about as original as they can get. When I was little people would just tell me to wait and I'd understand when I was older or I'd grow out of it and I'd look at them like they were stupid. Its always been an annoyance...

    Things Roll

    Okay this is the way it is... much of the time I can let little offensive things roll right off of me. That is just an area I am continuing to grow and improve in. That said.... I am very direct and say what I think. If you are thin-skinned you will not last around me. If you...

    The 1st Time I Was Seduced

    It was the summer after I finished 8th grade. I had been cutting grass for neighbors all summer. Me, my trusty push-mower and a red gas can would go anywhere for 3 bucks.  On a hot June afternoon I was cutting the yard diagonally across the street from our house. There was a...

    My First Time

    I  haven't shared this with many people, but I had my very first ****** on a sheepskin rug.  Honestly.  One day a long time ago, alone at home I had myself a nice hot bath, a nice cold drink and I would put on one of my mom's new...

    I Don't Stay Down For Too Long...

    I've reached a point in my life where I feel Im mentally and emotionally strong. Sometimes I go though difficult and sad moments in life but I am determined to stay happy and positive. I might be down for a minute but I always get up. No one or nothing can keep me down for long...

    There's a difference between love and lust

    This story I wrote down with many stops and starts, so my excuses for that from the start.  I don't think that I should try to put down my "first time" love story with too much care.  After all, love usually hits one without warning and first love ...

    No Purring For Me, Please

    This morning I read by pure accident a posting of a well established female EP member that disturbed me a lot. I didn't want to react directly to it but I decided to type a quick posting of my feelings here. I like to think that I'm a fair and openminded human being, let alone...

    40% Pure Gristle

    That's me.It's an approximation mind you, some might think it's more 60%, while others might say 20%...it's subjective I suppose. I like to think as sensitive as I am, I am at least that tough as well. I can and have dealt with a lot in my life. I really hope the future is easier...

    The First Time That I Was Seduced By a Woman

    My story dates from the late 80's when I was still seeking my way through life. I was only 19, enormously shy, quite innocent and fresh out of a failed attempt at university. I know now that I had been wronged when the university body expelled me just because I was in...
