I Have Learned From Being On Ep

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 636 People

    ..

    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...

    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.

    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...

    I learned more about myself.

    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...

    I have learned that there are a lot of

    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...
