    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.

    They're way more fun to be around!

    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).

    It's kind of difficult to find this

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

    I have a thick middle eastern accent

    and that makes me feel self conscious cause all my class mates stare at me when I say something then laugh. They also think that I'm a dummy cause I got no Aussie accent like them and whenever I talk, I have to repeat what I'm saying at least 2 or 3 times, so they could...

    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...

    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...

    Ever have a decent conversation with a close

    minded person? I haven't. I know I don't know everything, and the longer I live, the more I find that what I do know, isn't always right. We grow when we are open to other thoughts, and the more open-minded we are, the less we hate. I want to grow, learn and never hate.

    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.

    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...

    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 .

    and I've had a lot of them go. Meaning if a friend or someone are going to judge someone that I know and call them names then that's the wrong way to do it. All you can say is that I don't agree with what they do and that's it. If you like to sit behind your keyboard...

    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...
