    I Miss

    having true friends. The kind that are there for you no matter what. I could say it's because I moved to a new state over ten yrs ago but thinking back now even all the friends I had back home were still somehow mysteriously missing when I needed them most. Makes me wonder if I...

    Every part of myself

    that I hold back from another person builds a wall between me and them. Knowing this hasn't magically stopped me from putting up walls. Hell, some walls are a good thing. But still - I'm working on letting people see me more and more, every day.

    Not Just Acquaintances

    I used to have a close-knit circle of real friends- the kind you can depend on for anything. They never judged me, took advantage of me, laughed at something I thought was important, or displayed any kind of awkwardness around me. We were so 'together' and we just clicked. Now...

    When you feel the spark of a real connection,

    whether it is a friend or more, it is a great feeling. It is nice to have people in your life that you can be yourself around, and always feel accepted.

    I m looking for some real connection,

    maybe I v turned spiritual , I want a connection that will somehow last a life time. It will have to definitely pass the physical or sexual level, into the belief system, the way we think and respond to situations. Real love is hard enough to find, a life time connection.... I...

    Ok, where are all the Ohio people?

    So far the large majority of people I met are out of state or in a different country. I am looking to meet new people and make connections especially with those from OHIO!! No I am not soliciting sex- so if that is what you are looking for I am not that person.

    How Can We Seem So "normal" And Yet Know So Few?

     I seem to have failed to establish many real connections with people, especially women.  It seems that the minute we meet, we know--we are alike, we will bond; or in my case, that we are not and will not.  How is this possible, in a world with so many people, in a...

    I'm Tired of Superficial Relationships

    I want REAL friendships, but it seems difficult to build them up. I've always had acquaintances, which is fine but I want friends. If I want to talk to someone about what's really going on in my life, I want to be able to do that. I also want someone to be honest with me with...

    Real

    I came to Ep to form real friendships and relationships with people. I know cyber sex is kind of fun but that's not my main purpose for being here. I'm looking for something deeper then just a little meaningless fun. I want to find friends to talk to about real problems and real...
