    I am not here to win a popularity contest. I am no angel yet I am mannerly to all those with whom I am lucky enough to contact.  I don't expect much, but manners is one of my key requirements.  Don't assume you have right of access to my profile circle just because it may "cost...

    Why I Joined Ep

    It wasn't about how many people I could add to my circle. It wasn't about how many people I could get to admire my pics. I am here because I am a serious writer and I have had many many interested experiences over the years. Some will have people saying that couldn't have...

    Never Liked Being Popular

    In real life; I just want to be left alone. But in EP, it's different.

    Real Deal

    To me, everyone is a star to themselves, their family and friends. Hollywood and popular cliques don't have to raise you up. It's actually a good thing if Hollywood paparazzi and media does not know who you are, if what makes the news is any indication. Getting your picture...

    Couldn't Care Less

    I see the popular peeps on EP everywhere, the ones with a thousand groups dedicated to them, etc. That's all well and good, and I say let them keep that spotlight, Baby!!I prefer it in the shadows.

    I Am Not Here To ...

    I was never the type who liked being popular in my real life and certaintly not online either.  I have deleted quite a few people and nothing intentionally, just want a smaller circle, so therefore, I am not here to win a popularity contest.

    Popular Was Never My Thing

    I'm not here to win any contest. Least of all when it comes to popularity. I really couldn't care less whether I had 100 or 67 or 5 friends on here. I'd rather have 5 people that actually mean something to me and that I care about rather than 500 strangers and 99.9% of them don't...

    I Really Don't Care...

    I am not an attention seeker or a drama queen. I do not feel the need to write a blog or story every time I have a thought or a bodily function. I do not aim to be on every body's friends list, and I keep my list down to my real friends. Numbers do not bother me nor does having...

    Well spank my arse and call me Charlie, could have fooled me.. I really am learning not to give a flying fat rats whether you like me, approve of me, or even speak to me. I am learning that I come first, and therefore - I mean more than some popularity contest. Bring on the...

    So I'm experiencing the decrease

    or the fall of this so called "popularity." It probably sucks but I don't really mind since it won't do any better to me. People have been ignoring me in real life and unfollowing me online. It doesn't really matter to me, until the individuals I've considered as "friends" are...

    For the most part, I joined this group because of the funny little gnome avatar! I've never mooned anyone myself, but it makes me giggle! I'm really not here to win any popularity contests though. I'm just here to be me, vent, meet people, do what I can to help others and make...

    I Hate Competition

    I despise it. I play sports for recreation and fun, I don't enter competitions to test my skills and put them up against others. I play my music privately, because I don't want to enter the competition game of being compared to others, or having others compared to me. I try to...

    No...

    I am not here to win a damn popularity contest. I am here to be me, at least that is why I joined Ep, was to be me, and to be accepted. I am more me, now than I ever was. I am here to find friends that I will keep forever. I Love my friends, and I will do anything for them...

    Most people will never

    even know I'm here, but I don't want to be friends with most people, so I don't care. I prefer to keep a small and tight knit circle of decent, like-minded people with whom I can form real bonds. I'm not a number collector, and I don't want number collectors in my circle...
