    I'm not a judgmental person: I like to see

    people appreciate who they are not what the world tells them to be.

    I'm young, they might be old.

    I'm educated, they might be dumb. I'm female, they might be male. I'm a biker, they have a car! It takes all sorts to make this world. I would hate to miss out on learning about something new because of differences.

    I'm a woman and some of my best friends are men!

    I work with a crazy gang of guys who spend time on practical jokes!

    I am accepting of pretty much everyone.

    Great conversations can be had across different types of people, and much can be discovered. All I ask is that you are genuine. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Matters Of The Heart

    I saw this group in random and just had to join. I am friends with a lot of people who are different from me in many areas in life. I was born with half a brain but yet I am friends with people who have whole brains. Even though I was born with physical disabilities that are not...

    Hello Stranger!

    Thanks to EP, I know that I can love a fervent Christian, an avowed Republican, people who are wealthy... EP has really granted me the opportunity to care for someone before ferreting out the ways that we differ. And it's a blessing because I've realized that you can be friends...

    She's so different. We could not have been more

    opposite. Here I was, coming out of a morning workout, still in my gym stuff, perspiring, my hair all over the place. I knew I looked like a mess but I didn't care. No one messed with the only girl on the boys' wrestling team. Then I saw her at the locker beside mine. I had...

    Hell I'm in love with one.

    I'm christian and he's pagan! How it works you may ask? Well I'm the type of Christian that is open minded and accepts people for who they are!! Which is what all Christians should be.

    I can get along with just about everyone.

    I say just about because there are people out there who don't like me because they don't want to get to know me because I'm different. But I surround myself with people who are different than I am. I love that about them! Their differences make them who they are and help me...

    I enjoy people who are way different

    than me because they make things more interesting. You can learn about a different perspective of something or just cool new things. Is rather be friends with someone different than someone like me

    I love people who are different from me!

    I guess the saying "opposites attract is very true in my case. I smile all the time, talk a lot once I get going, am extremely introverted most times (contradiction?), and I have a very positive outlook on life. For some reason, I seem to gravitate towards people who don't have...

    Who would want a crayon box

    that only has one color? Or a monotone world where all buildings are the same architecture? Not for me. The only lease breaker is a lack of respect for the other person. While I don't particularly seek out people who are different,I enjoy variety in most things. I'm constantly...

    Well, I can get along with people totally

    different from me, though I only rarely make the deeper connections I refer to as friendship. Such people can also be quite different from me, but I tend to find the people I keep really close are close to me in values too.

    I can be friends with people from a wide range

    of difference. It varies from oldschool nerds to contemporary ******* or even mixed! I'm the kind of in between these two, so maybe that's why. Most importantly, I don't judge. So maybe that's why!

    My friends are totally different from me,

    I'm quite they're loud, I'm independent they're dependant on me, they are wild and in comparison I'm boring but it kinda makes sense for us because they need me and I need them to make me fun
