    Well That's a Funny Thing...

    On the topic of friends. I guess i have never really had the friends I want. And when it comes down to it, I can blame any reason but the truth is just to blame myself and to move on, I feel. In time perhaps I will solve this. Reality of the situation is, I find life...

    More Than Just A Truly Wonderful Friend

    I do have a truly wonderful friend on EP. He was the first friend I made here and he is a true gem. He's patiently given advice, let me cry on his (vitual) shoulder, made me smile and sometimes out and out laugh, kept my mind occupied when I was sinking into a funk, protected me...

    My Lolo

    I love Lolo more than he will ever know. He has gotten me through so many hard times and was there to be my shoulder to cry on. We had a really rocky start when we first met because he thought I was the one to blame for the mess that was going on at the time. I am so glad he...

    True Friends

    I don't no why it is, but in real life everyone I meet is always an ******* or a selfish jerk. The friends I have who are actually cool people and most important care, I have never met. Random sites or chat sites for whatever reasons always as the same sort of people as me. Sure...

    A Wonderful Friend

    I have a best friend I've never met, thanks to EP. It is funny how you can feel so close to someone you've never met in "real life." Friendships that blossom online can be totally different.  Maybe it is because you doubt you'll ever met the other person that you...
