    It isn't necessarily just that I can not make friends in my age group, I have and often are surrounded by such people. Though I'd be dishonest to say their company satisfied me. We're in our second year of college and parties still play out like they would in high school, even...

    I Feel They Are Not On My Level.

    I cannot hold a decent conversation with most people my age.  It's sad, but the maturity is not there.  It's like all they want to do is party.  I want to live a stable, more calm lifestyle.  I am so happy that I finally found my soulmate, who agrees with me.

    My Age Group Seems to Established In Their Place.

    Outsiders and alternatives are shunned - older folks seem to find hunor in it and younger ones just wonder.  But I presume it's just the way it is and will be for me and I just accept this as it is.

    Just Very Little to Talk About...

    I am a snob, I admit it. I have lived many lives, both within this one and many years ago. People find me "elitist" in intellect at first. If you are within the 25-35 age span and are my friend, I find you wise and honorable. Younger and older people rarely annoy me...
