I Prefer Open Minded and Non-judgemental People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,782 People

    I see so many people saying

    that they are open minded! Do they even know what it means? I think not, most are under the delusion that it means they accept this or that latest fad or political agenda. That is not being open minded that is following the crowd in order to fit in. Or it also means that you...

    Where can I find such great people?

    Someone I can be friends with and talk about anything at all about ourselves and about the world without judgments.

    I'm finding it more and more difficult to date

    women closer to my age, once they find out that I've dated and had pleasant relationships with women between the ages of 18 -25. I'm 42, my last gf was 19.

    "soround Yourself With Good People" or Why I Sent a Text at the Bagel Shop

    "Conform, do as you're told,

    we know best..." No, the best life is the one you enjoy the most because you retain your own values and remain focused on your vision, not simply aiming to meet others' expectations or to be loyal to values that are not your own. Conforming is the easiest path to take but that...

    It's hard to be near someone

    who has their focus trained on what everyone else is doing wrong. Let them be. You're missing out on some wonderful stuff while you're muttering and glaring at someone who couldn't care less what you think.

    But often times I become real close with people

    who stick to their own principles, which is not necessarily a bad thing. They are open minded, but they stick to their beliefs.

    It's kind of difficult to find this

    because I live in a city filled with closed-minded and judge mental people.

    I really like true open minded people.

    Some claim claim to be so open minded but if I don't participate in the same behavior they call me narrow minded, trying to use reverse psychology .

    Judgement And Open-Mindedness Are Two Sides Of The Same Coin...

    I would like to interject a difference in terms to discuss what open-mindedness is. Acceptance is to acknowledge what you see as something that is real. It does not imply any implication on how you feel about it. I think in western society we make an assumption that if we accept...

    A World Of Judgement

    It's tough to live in a world of judgement where spiritual/paranormal phenomena can happen to someone and you're suddenly viewed as "crazy" or "insane". I'm reading a book called Many Lives Many Masters that I'm getting a lot out of, because of something that had happened to me...

    I have close minded "friends" but they won't be my friends any longer after I graduate. (because I have to see them at school, it's for the better to be nice).

    Open minded and non-judgemental people offer

    more interesting conversations, and have more interesting ideas than those who place limitations on their own minds and opinions.

    To me this person does not like everything,

    but manages to not criticize other for liking it. This person can talk about anything, but can also say: I do know this is of great interest to you, but for me it's not something I would like to talk about. Being open minded doesn't mean loving every kink or wacky idea with open...

    Do Not Judge But Do Not Run

    Western society seems to feel that by allowing people to choose any way of making it through life is to be non-judgmental. For me though it seems crazy to think this. I often disagree with people, but it is not because I am judging people. When people simply ignore how someone...
