    What Do I Want?

    As I sit here in a car to chaperone my child's field trip I can't stop thinking about being held captive in my spandex! This feeling will NOT go away until I have my experience. I am quite happy with my life but there is something missing. Something my wife would never understand...

    I'm A Very Honest Person

    I'm a very honest person.  I don't know how to be otherwise.  It's just in my nature to be honest.

    This is one area of life

    where I've had a very difficult time learning the lesson I should have learned long ago. The problem with a person like me who truly means what I say is that I assume others do also. I still manage to be surprised when I realize a person didn't mean what they said but instead...

    I would love to join this group (or another similar one) but I feel DIShonest about doing so.  It is not that I am dishonest here on EP about what I write or that I am generally dishonest in general, but the very fact that I am on EP secretively is dishonest in itself (at least...

    Sometimes I'm too honest.

    Not the rude sort of way, but if someone asks me a question I can't help but answer them as honestly as I can. I always hope people won't ask too many questions because I feel the need to answer and be as truthful as I can. I'm also far too open, I don't mind people knowing...

    Honest

    I am honest to a fault. I tell it the way it is, no matter what. Sometimes it gets me in trouble. But anyone that knows me doesn't question me

    I think if your honest with people is the best

    way to get to know someone. it's better to be yourself then be someone else. and if the person cant accept you for you, then they're not the right person to be around. Never change yourself just to please someone else.

    I Honestly Don't Lie

    I don't give a crap if you believe me or not. One day I am going to hand over my password and someone can take a few thousand of my saved emails from this place and write an epic book about it. Seriously, you'll see one day.

    My mouth gets me into trouble because not only am I honest, I tend to phrase things in such a brutally forthright manner that I honestly (lol) scare people. I can see it in their faces that can't tell if I'm serious, joking, or insane. The truth is that I'm probably a little of...

    occasions, but I respect what is. And sometimes what is happens to be ugly. Facing up to it is my style.

    You can lie to anyone you want

    but you will never fool yourself. If I think about lying I automatically feel stupid so I never try lol. My parents must have really engrained it when I was young because I've never been able to be very dishonest.

    I'm honest with everyone, my friends, my kids, and even people that I don't know.  To me Honesty is the backbone of any relationship.  With out trust and honesty then you have nothing.  Its hard to build relationships based on nothing.

    A Liar Who Is Honest

    I lie all the time. About big or little things. Sometimes to save myself, sometimes for no reason or sometimes to save someone else. But then I can become brutally honest with some things. A lot of the time, I believe it's what I honestly mean or think, then realize it's what I...
