    I Am Way To Honest!

    Even On Ep...

    Sometimes I am too honest for my own good and it can affect a lot of my relationships with others. If I like someone (which is 99% of the time) I will tell them. If I love someone, I will tell them too. Of course I generally tell them too soon in a relationship. BTW when is "...

    I feel like when people are angry it's when there most honest. Think about it. You build up walls, you keep things to yourself. Until you get mad, that's when you can't control yourself. You let the emotions take over. And for me that's just how it is. I keep things from people...

    I often find myself in weird/awkward situations

    with friends and loved ones because of my honesty. I was always told the truth hurts, but being honest is always the best way to go. Yesterday my sister told me that she loved how honest I am, but there is a time and a place for it. Also my honesty and bluntness can be to much...

    I Am Too Honest For My Own Good But

    it's beats the alternative so I guess I'll stick with it. I'll think about writing something else for this topic but I really only wanted to say that that topic picture is hilarious and absolutely perfect for this subject. I need that sign. I need it right now!

    I'm Honest

    I'm honest because it's my nature.  I would feel guilty if I were dishonest.  It's  just not my nature to be dishonest.   Perhaps I'm too honest.

    I previously had a profile on EP with a photo

    attached and got bombarded with questions/messages etc based on my looks hence new profile minus photo. Does it make me dishonest by trying to connect on levels other than the superficiality of looks by "hiding" my true identity?

    I now realize that. It makes a lot of sense

    now that people randomly hate me. We all say we like honest people, but the truth is, we don't know how to handle the truth.

    It's a Curse Sometimes

    I am honest about my feelings and thought, sometimes very bluntly and outright, and I think it surprises people who are all "proper" and uptight.  If I think someone is attractive, I will say so, but not in that "come on baby" way, just a general...
