    I have made very few true connections

    but they hold a very special place in my heart! I made one one on ep surprisingly.

    I haven't felt a true connection with anyone in

    so long. I often wish I could just move to San Francisco or Manhattan and start a new life with new people. Maybe then I'll find the connection I long for so much.

    Earlier today I was trying to reflect back on

    how my life differed exactly a year ago... But all I could think of was that a year ago I did not know you existed. Insanity.

    It's strange, I've always been content with my

    friendships pre-EP. Most of the friends I talk to and hang out with, I've known for least 5 years - at most 15 years. I thought the history, and the fact that we lasted that long, meant that we were true friends. There were times when I felt drained and dissatisfied with my...

    Too many people here pretending to be different

    It often appears like a true connection

    but gee be careful of psychopaths, sociopaths and narcissists on here. EP is the perfect playground for people with mental health problems. Which is okay I guess because it gives them a place to vent. Better here than on the street as one of my friends on EP posted recently...

    I want to make a true connection.

    Mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. There always seems to be something missing. On EP it is the physical because you would rarely meet the people you meet on here because of distance or other obstacles.

    Eight People in Five Years I've been an on

    and off member at EP for nearly 5 years. It's been an adventure. In those 5 years, it's almost crazy to consider how many friends I have made. I've probably established at least 2 dozen friendships that were real. Of those, I count 8 (7 women, 1 man) where I...

    as the sky kisses the earth beyond the seas it will make you feel I touched you perennially. If you wish to listen to my voice put your ears on the wind the breezing sound will let you know my unspoken love. if you wish to look into my eyes deep just look straight into the moon...

    Unless you're plugging something into the wall.

    As long as you pay your power bill, those connections are pretty reliable.

    I can't remember the last time I felt a real

    connection with a person.. I have lots of good friends, they are all kind and genuine people.. I almost gave up.. I'm not looking for connection anymore, just comfort and getting along and maybe some excitement.. I'm tired..

    It's easy to physically turn someone on Maybe

    it's not difficult to satisfy a person. But the real challenge is to make a woman feel loved and cherised. To wipe tears and hug her when she's down. To call when you know she needs you To make her laugh when she's sad To know her every mood Just like she knows your needs And...

    I found her. She is not only beautiful inside

    and out. She has captured my heart. She's opened my thoughts. Turned on a light to my darkness. She even has opened my soul to feel again. She has the most beautiful smile her eyes sparkle when I talk to her. She knows exactly how to make me smile and make me feel wanted and...

    "It's beautiful when you find someone

    that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the wall you've built up around your mind and let them inside." Physical attractions are common, but a mental...

    It's one of those beautiful moments in life

    when you meet someone who shares your sense of humor, who can argue with you and not get upset and who you can share absolute silence with and miss them when they're gone.

    Finding that person that you connect with

    immediately. Impossible? No. I'm living proof. Met a very very special girl here that immediately bowled me over with love and compassion. I would not believe if if it didn't happen to me. Keep the faith people. Your guy/gal is out there. Never stop looking. You have no idea...

    Acquaintances are easy

    and we all have many, but true friendship requires a lot more time and effort to really mature. It's truly a rare occurrence.

    When two people become

    so close that they can no longer pretend to be anything but themselves. Nor can they hide their true thoughts and feelings. Each has an uncannily accurate bs barometer and aren't afraid to call the other on it when that barometer goes off. I have a very close friend with whom...

    Everyday we get in contacts with people.

    We meet people in the office, at school, in the supermarkets, along the roads, in train or parties, or even here in EP in a virtual state.We may talk, exchange comments, complain, share or laugh, but, at the end of the day, we realise that nobody left a little piece of them to us...
