    The "Friends" I Had

    All or almost, or even most of the time, The friends I had didn't understand me nor wanted to. I didn't want to be understood, either, it seems. Now I need friends that do want to understand me. The real me. Not just the cover or skin that surrounds me or the simple...

    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.

    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.
