    I found myself always prefer being alone

    I Need Trust To Be Built

    When I first came to EP I was overly trusting and I took everyone at face value. I made a lot of friends that way but I also attracted some people that i would never consider true friends, and I even attracted a stalker and his friends. I don't trust people any longer and it...
