I Don't Know Everyone In My Circle

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 168 People

    Not In Real Life, At Least...

    As far as knowing the people in my circle outside of EP, I would have to say no, I only know one person in my circle (well, two, because she has two accounts). That doesn't bother me though. This is how the world works these days. People create friendships online and though they...

    Not By A Longshot

    I would like to. I really would.  I am, however, rather socially inept the majority of the time and don't even know how to properly initiate "smalltalk" with people.   So here is my little message to those of you (if there are any...I could be jumping the cart a...

    No I Don't But...

    but I would like to... if they would reply or not expect me to go outside my comfort zone... I think a few of them added me for the wrong reasons and they'll probably end up being removed, especially if they don't talk to me after the first hello...

    It Would Be Hard To Know Everyone

    How could you know everyone. I have some great friends on Ep. I have tried to message a few in my circle that has never replied. I take it they don't want to be contacted and I can respect that. The way I see it   if you try and they don't want too   so be it...

    Getting To Know

    I have been getting to know a few people quite well in my circle here at EP and enjoy learning more from them. I try to reply to comments and stories from my circle members to feel more of a part of the whole circle. I genuinely care about problems that people are going through...

    :(

    There are some in my circle that I do know personally in my real life.  Others in my circle I strictly know here and have no desire to take them into my real life. Additionally, there are a few that I haven't stayed in touch with and/or I don't know very well. I would like...

    I Dont

    Some people who add me never say a word to me I wonder why. I guess I have found that a lot of people was really nervous to talk to me at first so maybe that is it.

    Not In Real Life Anyway

    No offense to any of my friends on here, I'm sure you're all really nice sweet people in real life, but I've told too many secrets on here to be comfortable with meeting any of you in real life. Earlier in the month someone I know in real life recognized my username and called...

    Almost.

    I was the first of my "real" friends to discover ep, then i invited two of them. Another friend i met on here and have since met in person, but everyone else I have never met in real life and most likely never will.

    Well Not Yet Anyway

    I don't want to add anyone that's a friend in real life right now because everything is far too personal and I worry about other people too much. I want some place to write whatever I want anonymously so I don't have to worry about that. I want to be unedited by my own self...
