    Lately, I have written a few stories here at EP,

    regarding my past relationship, and even wanting to move on to finally meet the right woman. However, amidst what I have shared, one thing about my past relationship that I did not share was a key mistake that I have since learned from. One of the things that I can look back at...

    What Have I Learnt

    Don't be the nice guy who's serious, you'll get laughed at and taken as a joke. Be the carefree one, it hurts less and is way easier to move on. Dwelling on the past may screw your future, yet not paying enough attention to the past will make your future repeat the same...

    I really have learned from my mistakes

    and I feel today I learned a lot. I won't go into great detail because I doubt anyone on here cares. I'm not saying that in a pout and whine. I seriously have not encountered many truly, kind people here. I have encountered many who like saying they are kind, caring, etc...
