    Now That I'm Older It's Different

    All my life from the get go I've been the risk taker (black sheep) and one to gravitate toward new experiences.  I enjoyed getting to know someone new.  I loved figuring out their reality, and what they know.  I find human behavior really interesting...

    We Are All Different

    Truth is, we are all different. We all come from different places and have different life experiences. I really enjoy meeting new folks, and getting to know them. My work allows me to meet some interesting people from time to time. Same with the nieghborhood pub. Have a beer or...

    I Like People That Can Be Themselves!!

    you know, i hate using the term "sheep" to describe people sometimes, but when i think about it, how true is it!! i mean, its almost like nowadays if you dont live your life a certain way, or if you dont have the same goals as everyone else, or if you dont do as everyone else...

    Where Did All The Weirdo's Go???

    I'm what you call 'different'. Purely because of the way I think and the things I do and say. I remember the times when I'd surpress those things just to fit in with the 'normals'. I ended up feeling even more alienated and strange, like maybe I'm just some kinda outcast. Truth...

    I Love Him More Each Day

    Another update, I'm still in love with my teacher - ex teacher - who is 17 years older than myself. It's crazy but I do seriously love him and not seeing him after all these months has made me realize that. I haven't been able to emotionally click with any other guy my age etc...

    I Really Do

    I really have come here just to find a person who want to chat with me as much as I want to chat with them. I always seem to be interested in certain others, but this feeling is never returned. For a man in the world, looking for anything to connect with seems near impossible...

    Be Real And I'll Say, "vive La Difference!"

    In my opinion, there are two types of different.  'Naturally different', and 'put on different'.The other day I saw a beautiful, young woman with blue hair.  She looked to be from Barbados, or a similar island, and carried herself with such grace, poise and elegance ...and...

    Strange Boy

    I remember when I was 16, I had art class with a boy who was so quiet that everyone would usually forget he was in the class. I never even knew his name... he wasn't great-looking or charismatic or anything- he just sat there quietly, doing his assignments. He had dark hair that...

    I Love Unusual People

    I love being around people who are "weird."  Most people in our society look like and act like a bunch of clones. I like people who have minds of their own. Most people would think these people are weird, but I just think they're awesome.

    Somewhere along the way,

    I discovered that I really enjoy people who are different. I don't look down on people who seem like everyone else, but it's just refreshing when people are willing to stick out. You can see more of their uniqueness and there is something beautiful and real about that.

    This Girl

    There's a girl in two of my classes that I simply adore. I love her because she is herself: unique. She comes in every day wearing something different, something beautiful. She has friends that like her for her personality, not anything else. She's kind of quiet, but I find that...

    Different Views Keep Things Balanced

     It's how we grow and develop, if people all had the same views on everything their would be no development of anything passed that one view. I love people who are different then me because they keep me on my toes and help me develop/challenge my views.

    But Where I Am From

    You don't get much of a variety. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying all the people around here are bland but they aren't exactly my definition of "different" either. I guess when I think of different I think of myself and so I try to find people who are like me even in the...

    Increase Your Bubble

    I love to meet and talk with others who differ from me.  Any kind of difference.  It is so exciting to lean about them.  I learn so much and grow as a person. The biggest surprise is always learning the differences are small compared to how we are alike.
