    Ok. I am in a relationship.

    Mentally I am not in the relationship and I know this because I recently had a child in which honestly I was not ready for but I have manned up and accepted my responsibilities. My girl does not work which is fine because she is the primary care giver to my son. My problem comes...

    It's not enough, it's never enough.

    I will always want more. Will I ever be satiated?

    I've always been told

    that I'm TOO honest. I don't see the point in lying and in that I never have to keep track of lies and stories, makes life much easier.

    // I do think everyone would be a lot happier

    if we laid eggs on our own and could just have friendship and didn't need to mount and penetrate one another.

    I'm realistic. Not everyone,

    or many infact, people will like me. Not everyone will agree with me. I'd rather you are upfront about that then pretend. I've had enough fake people in my life I don't need more.

    There's a reason why I have very few female

    friends. I've had three women who express interest in hanging out but never follows up. Now before anyone says I should do something or initiate, I do. I never had any problems with my guy friends. Hardly ever change an appointment and always mean what they say

    I've been surrounded by dishonest,

    manipulative people my whole life. I was starting to feel like lying and constantly wearing a mask was human nature, and like I would never meet people who truly mean what they say. After being backstabbed several times and lied to every day, I almost gave up. Two years ago, I...

    I could say that I am an honest person.

    My friends and I have been honest to almost everything about ourselves. We share our guilt, our traumas, our sexual desires our dreams, and what we truly feel with each other. But some truth has a perfect time to be revealed. I believe that we must be truly honest with each...

    When Someone Is Honest With Me.

    I think the best thing in a friendship is honesty. I'm always as honest as I can be, as long as I like/trust the person and want to be friends with them. I appreciate when someone can be honest with me, even about the slightest things. Even if they think I wont like what they...

    What some people don't seem to understand is

    that you don't have to be an a-hole in order for your message to get across, but at the same time hurting someone's feelings can be inevitable at times.

    Every now and then, I will recognize

    that someone on EP is lying to me. I cannot understand why anyone would lie on an anonymous site. Isn't that the point of such a site? to be honest? Oh well, at least I am honest here.

    I really can't stand fake people.

    Don't lie to me, don't play games with me. Be straight forward, tell me what you think and feel and want. Cuz once I find out you've lied and made a fool of me, that's it. It's always easier to walk away, so give me a reason to stay.

    I don't care how badly it hurts me,

    or how damaged I am after it, but I would rather the bitter honest truth over being told sugarcoated lies to spare me...because in the end when I find out the truth it just hurts more.

    I think the worst thing you could do to someone

    A liar is like a thief.

    He robs you of the chance to make you own decisions based on things that are true. He gives you a picture of reality that serves only his interests and cares nothing for yours. He uses you as a tool to get what he wants, be that affection, support or money. A liar looks at you...
