    When I am friends with somebody I have to be

    able to let go mentally. I can't stand when I find a friend and I keep having interupting thoughts as to not even being able to let go of myself. Isn't that the point of a Friend? I want to learn as I am constantly curious. But everyone I meet is never able to keep up...

    Anyone else get curious about something

    and then stop at nothing to learn every single detail about it? Like I got curious at what year India was "founded" then spent three days writing a research paper on the order of countries founded for literally no reason. I do this type of thing all the time. If I don't have all...

    I feel so empty in this house,

    there's zero stimulation. I live with a narcissist who is empty as a drum. I need to have real conversations with people, I need stimulation... To feel art to speak to people with knowledge. I feel like my potential is dying out with this life. I need people who have more to...

    In my daily life there isn't much interaction

    with others that one could consider anything more than superficial. Truthfully, I'd say that most of the aforementioned others are way too set in their beliefs, don't have an open mind and therefore are incapable of holding a dynamic conversation. I left EP nearly 2 years ago...

    High Intellectual Need

    i have a very active mind. that's why i am always bored. money per se doesn't drive me. i need meaning, purpose. without purpose, i am like a zombie, a robot. dead, stone, wood.

    DISCLAIMER: This is just a rant.

    I must be a masochist. Every time I log in to EP, I look through all of the mindless nonsense people say. Most of it isn't founded in any type of logic. It rarely, if ever, contains any interesting content. Almost all of it is incredibly naive, as if from it were from...

    If you use the word sapiosexual to describe

    yourself, then you're my hero. If you don't know the definition, look it up and have a good chuckle! "The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection." ~Thomas Paine

    I miss college. The deep conversations

    and academic challenges. I don't have that at home. In the beginning of marriage, I made the mistake of telling my husband (who played video games more than not) that I needed stimulating conversation. He's never let me forget it. However, it's still true today. I lack that...

    I love learning, but only

    I'm a woman, being physically stimulated is

    relatively easy. A thought can get me wet. What I crave is intellectual stimulation, questions or a conversation that gets the grey matter going on overdrive, but what to do?

    I adore stimulating conversation with

    interesting people. It must be an extension of my love of learning and wanting to research as much as possible in my lifetime. You can't get any better than first-hand experiences and a person's reasons behind their opinions. even when I don't agree with the point of view, I...

    Have you ever had a conversation,

    in a public place, with a friend or significant other and they said something incredibly stupid or ignorant? Those moments baffle me and I usually just stare at them for a couple minutes. I'm literally at a loss for words at that moment. That's probably for the best.

    It's seems like people talk just to hear their

    This has made life more interesting.

    and feel like you didn't talk at all? Not that those people weren't important, but the conversation was lacking something more stimulating?
