    You can never beat me down.

    You can't make me sad. Your words mean nothing to me. I don't need anyone.

    I'm 47. I was abused

    as a child - sexually, physically, emotionally, spiritually. The way I got through it was by pretending to be someone else - characters from TV, movies, books, even the Bible. I think we do what we need to do, in order to cope with loneliness and the pain of being in the world...

    I don't pretend to be people from movies

    or celebrities, I pretend that the characters from a movie, for example Thranduil, are real and live with me,(with me as my regular self). I think I'm going to try acting as a career, I have not told my family this as I am afraid they will not support me or my decision.

    I wonder why I put myself in these situations.

    Sometimes I pretend I'm a guy online. More often than not, I come clean that I'm a girl after a conversation, simply liking the brief interpretation of being a guy. For some reason I feel more... at ease. I couldn't tell you why, really. In my daily life I feel like a rather...

    I Pretend To Be A Guy Online

    Totally straight. Always will be straight. But this is my experience. I'm sixteen, and I started this about a year ago... Back then it was casually though, where I would eventually come out I was a girl to those I cared about, and it wasn't until about a couple of months ago that...

    but pretending to be someone else online & hiding behind someone else's looks kind of comfort me. It sounds horrible, I know. But I'm so insecure, that I can't be comfortable making online accounts and putting my real face on them. People usually find out that I'm faking, & hate...
