    So rare yet so awesome when found

    You know when you have found your twin from another mother when someone asks "are you talking to yourself on the phone" when you are on the phone with that person. And we shared so many traits, but unfortunately she moved away a long time ago. Wish I could find another one soon...

    If I Had a Record Player It'd Be Old and Retro and Broken

    I'm not Robert Smith.  (He can't find himself in that song "Lost"..)  I never found Robert Smith, and I never found Joseph Smith, or God either.  Shh evangelists, bite your holy tongues.  Whatever.  I think we've gotta rely on ourselves for that...

    Mr Nice Guy

    I am a senior guy, with a young heart. I am still looking for my last love. I am tired of eating sleeping alone. I really miss the present of a lady in my life. I am a man of color, but love all colors. If you are interested, I will tell you more.

    It Helps Lots And Lots

    When i am not sure if something is normal about me, i ask my friends about it, and when they say they feel the same way it's great. Even if we're lunatics at least we're not alone! LOLEP's great because of that too :)

    This Is So True

    This is true, I love finding parts of myself in others. Sometimes its like you meet your long lost twin. Other times its like discovering something you never knew, and its there in another, but you feel like this is you, too. Does that make sense? Like who we are is everyone here...

    Hello You, Meet Me

    This is one of the best feelings in the world, because it's an example of universal connection. The glow is supernatural and great.

    Yes.  I like knowing that others feel as I do. I also like learning how others feel differently, and why. Interaction of difference is a healthy thing when we can be respectful of each others differences.
