    Friends

    I would love to make friends in this city. I have lived here for two years and have only found one person I can stand to hang out with. I miss having a close circle of real life friends.

    Reaching Out

    We all have a driving desire to be understood and to be accepted for who we really are.  I guess that's why EP is so popular, we can connect with others based on our experiences, what we like or dislike.  I've bumped into some people here at EP who are so easy to...
