    I Am An Alien On My Planet

    No really, I don`t understand, can`t fathom how or why those social concepts came up. I don`t get other women, so I`m kind of a tomboy, but then I don`t get guys either. Why do they obcess over sports, beer and all those frat party things, why do insist on being jerks or...

    Men Are Too Weird

    I can't deny that. What's wrong with them, really?

    Seriously?

    People are confusing. One moment they're happy and chatty with you, then they're cold and distant the next. What gives?! Honestly, I think one of the greatest mysteries in the world is...people.

    I watch the people around me.

    Neighbors , strangers, so called friends more like people I just know not friends. Their all pretty much the same. Fake, faulty, back stabbing, simple minded sheeple. Always worried about what others think. Trying to b like everyone else. Keeping up with fashions & trends...

    I don't understand why people portray

    themselves to be something that they're not. Why would a person assume that acting one way and then doing things that go against everything they said they were is going to build lasting relationships with people? I understand the need many people feel for acceptance, but wouldn...

    I don’t understand people. Not at all. Not one bit. It seems you can never take their word on anything...and you are better off, way better off just keeping your distance and not getting too close either. Sad. Very sad. I know, motives, agendas, self-preservation, what do I...

    Seems basically all people

    when they hit their 40s become lazy and let themselves go, its sad to see and they just end up with their wife/husband without being in love, not livin life to its fullest, i guess they just end up taking everything for granted?

    I don't understand when people ask

    for help and then just don't accept it. Make up your mind and know what you want. Either you want help or you don't. If you want someone to help you, listen to you and someone comes in offering you that help, then let him bloody help you. Don't just ignore him. Otherwise, you'd...

    Maybe it's just this one particular guy.

    ... Try as I might, I don't understand why you pursued me in the first place. Why you wouldn't take no for an answer. Why you kept pushing at the door, gaining a little trust here, making a big breakthrough there. Why you told me all those things that put everyone else off didn't...

    Not At All

    I can understand myself (and that took years to accomplish) and yet I cannot fathom anyone else. I wish I knew what people were feeling and how all that played out into life. Family, friends, associates, people, they all play out in their own way apart from me. I feel so unique...

    How come when women on EP say they need someone

    to talk to, they don't care which gender. But when men write the same thing it means I'm Looking For A Woman. Often tagged Dating & Relationships. Just in case we were in any doubt at all. And the few who do reply usually start by asking if I'm gay. Is it beyond the wit of all...

    Sometimes i just don't understand people.

    They yell at you for putting up fake stories, then get mad when you say that they're fake because it implies that they're dumb. They say that your story is too short when you worked so hard, then complain it's too long if you just threw a couple of sentences in. And if I didn't...
