    That we are never alone in our daily struggles.

    When you think your problems are custom made, you will find someone in the same situation. I am not happy that someone is as miserable as me, but good to know others share my pain.

    Birds Of A Feather

    Birds of a feather flock together, they say. The proof is here on Experience Project. We all nest in groups/flocks. ... even the cuckoo birds. I have learned I ain't the only strange birdie here! *smile*

    Not to take anything seriously

    and that they'll always be someone who'd understand. My account was frozen unaccessible for two days then on the third day I can use it again. It's like the EP supporter are mind readers. After I'd sent the note saying "now feel free to laugh at me." I think they get it that...

    I have learned that everyone makes mistakes

    but that the mistake does not defy who you are as a person, it's how you deal with it that defy who you are as a person. If you are careless, evil, honest or even sensitive all depends how you deal with making your mistake. I make mistakes, most of the time ones that only had...

    22 Surprising Insights From My Shameful Double Life

    In case you didn't know, I used to be someone else. In particular, I was a girl. Not in real life. Just on ep. I created a fake ep account and pretended to be a lesbian. I used that account to post some erotic lesbian stories. They were good stories. Was it wrong? Probably...

    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...

    I have learned that there are a lot of

    "creepers" out there. Being a social network is great, however the method by which some of the male members behave on here is unsettling. I often wonder how their mothers raised them, perhaps there was no positive male influence on them. Because their methods of approach are...

    Heck, it happened again.

    Sssssstop. I'm not actually here for this. I'm not obligated to fulfil whatever 'desire' a stranger reckons they have for me just because they approach me in the mood. I don't deserve the insults I receive just because I'm not responding the way they want me to. Take your...

    So Much Better!

    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.

    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...
