I Need Friends That Understand Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 193 People

    Effort And Patience

    Although I'm easy to get along with, more often than not, I'm often misunderstood. Sure, I'll come off as some sex-crazed perv but I'm more than a hedonist. Get to know me before you assume I'm some deviant.

    "Road Works Ahead" My Friends

    A Friend To Have More In Common With

    I have a few friends, but they don't really get me. They accept me- but they just don't really understand. I would just love to have a friend that I have stuff in common with, and well, gets me.
