    ..

    Things I learned from EP; I'm vulnerable. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, to a fault at times. I'm compassionate about many things and some of those I should keep to myself. I make "relationships" online that I should not invest so much of myself in. I've learned that...

    Valuable Lessons To Pick Up While On Ep

    EP has been the second interactive social site I've had the pleasure to join since AOL in the 90's. It's been a long time since my AOL days. If you're not careful, it's relatively easy to lose oneself in the social cyberspace of the internet. There's simply SO much to do and not...

    Joined A Few Hours Ago, Learned A Lot

    I just joined EP a few hours ago, and I always thought I'm the only one with such bad problems, but I realized there are quite many people with the exact same problems. There are 7 billion people in this world, 7,000,000,000, that's a huge number. And out of that quite a few...

    IT'S JUST TIME TO REVIVE THIS OLD STORY: "You live and you learn". Its so very true. Good or bad, one way or another we learn. Granted sometimes it does hurt like hell because we took risks or never considered the consequences. Sometimes its just because we were too blinded by...

    I feel so much better about myself and the little things I secretly like. They really aren't that bad at all compared to the overpopulation of sick f***s on here. Please, keep being sick and twisted, it boosts the self esteem of the rest of us.

    Oh geez... There is so much trash here on ep.

    All these girls from other countries looking for husbands... Beware of these scammers. Pretty girls just wanting to hook up with you for no other reason than they are lonely. They have a sad story and then comes the I need money part. Don't say I didn't warn you!
