I have only been on EP for a short time, less than a month in fact. I started with pictures, groups, and a story but learned very quickly the more you show the more "friends" you attract. At first the excitement of seeing your communication box light up makes your day but quickly becomes overwhelming and the pressure of replying to everyone begins to wear you down and you quickly learn you really don't have true friends but rather people who only wanted to see your pictures. I decided to start over and see what kind of friends I would make without any of those. Most people ignored my requests, so I decided to send a message complimenting their stories or things we had in common, very few responded with a quick thank you and we're never heard from again, even after I tried to keep the conversation going. I did have two however, that I feel very fortunate to have met. One is new herself and we have joked about her having the same experience and the other is more than I could have ever imagined. She is unique, genuine, bold, funny, caring, extremely attractive and goes out of her way to make people feel good. I never thought I would write a story on EP but am so thankful to have met her and shared in true heartfelt conversations with her that I found myself wanting to write about it. "S" You are an amazing woman and I am happy to be your friend, thanks for giving me the opportunity to get to know you and you to know the real me without having seen me first.
