    No One Has Ever Seen The Real Me.

    It is 6:52 in the morning as I write this, I have had no sleep. I enjoy it, this is when I get into my somber state of mind and I feel the need to express myself. This Experience caught my eye and I knew I had to write. I am so much more than what meets the eyes, yes at first I...

    I think I'm a bit arrogant.

    And when I see people who are better than me in some aspects, in which I thought I was good, I feel bad with myself. I know it's stupid. Any of us are perfect, but although I don't hate people who are better than me, it hurts to see that. My thoughts...

    Im Not Who They Think I Am

    that's a lil misleading actually. I live my life being who "they" think I am. im an innocent small town good girl. that's how they see me and that's how I am. but if they were to ever look deeper... if they were to ever read my mind and see my inner thoughts, fantasies, desires...

    I'm Nice, I'm Polite, I Listen Well...

    ...but I also count the number of people I really trust on single digits. It's not that I don't like people, I just like them in small doses.  I don't trust most people at all, though I've gotten quite good at concealing this fact from most everyone. The first thing I ask...

    Who Am I ?

    Don't be afraid by my profile on EP. I'm married with a gentle woman. Alas, she don't understand my 'particularity'. She love me only like a 'man'. My soul is so feminine but 'crashed' in a male envelope. It's the reason why I search friend (F) who can understand my feminity. I...

    I go to a Christian University

    and when people meet me they think I'm this sweet innocent girl. Little do they know I'm a sex freak and I like to do kinky things with boys and girls. They just see a nice smart girl in nursing school but they don't know what I do at night. I'm going to hell for sure

    No One Knows Me

    Sometimes I look in the mirror and wonder if I even know myself. Some people are clueless; they think they can see into your soul upon first glance. Everyone thinks I'm a calm, caring, kind, intelligent person. I guess you could say that I am, but they don't know what goes on in...

    From what I look, I seem to be silent,

    different, weird, rare, strange & smart. I actually am a person that wants to be who I feel right to be, I love to help people when needed. I only think it's unnecesary to talk when it's unneeded. I do laugh, but I ussually hide it to not be too much notable. I'm not shy, I...

    me, they think they do but they have absolutely no idea about anything that goes on or how I'm really feeling, and sadly I don't think I'll ever be able to tell them either, even though I want to. It's how it always has been and how it always will be unless some sort of evidence...

    Could It Be That I'm Just Two-faced ?

    I’m so broken. It has become so obvious. I’m emotionally destroyed and there's nothing to do except watch me slowly fall apart. Each day it gets worse nothing ever gets better. I’m so alone in this world that it's starting to get at me. I never have to remind myself that it...

    Well, I don't understand

    why people force me like "do this" and "do that". I think each individual is born unique and they have been given, brains, hands, legs, etc, etc to create what they want and to live life how they wish. No matter how a person is born, they all have their own rights.....

    It's Hard to Break Their Image of You

    the way i dress, the way i speak and the way i treat others, it all contributes to a misinterpretation of me. obviously, different ppl have different angles of looking at me. some have me firmly cast as a shopaholic - which is only ONE part of "me", and others believe i...

    Being Nice
