    Yeh Peeps

    I remove from my circle those who misrepresent their age.. that is under-age saying they are 18-21 but in chat or message they tell me they are younger than what their profiles say. I also dump and block those who have content in their stories that could be used in a criminal...

    Many People Simply Do Not Care Anymore How They Act.

    People don't care what language they use or the tone it is said in. It seems that we (many of us) have become a society of self-obsessed, arrogant, obnoxious individuals. Rudeness is never justified whether in any area of our lives. I know that thoughts are not easily...

    Waiting For a Change

    I think we excuse bad behavior most the time because we believe it is gonna change. That it is not going to last, it's only temporary. Even if that temporary lasts for years. We always want to see the good in people especially if it's someone very close or family. We cannot...
