Matters Of The Heart

I saw this group in random and just had to join. I am friends with a lot of people who are different from me in many areas in life.

I was born with half a brain but yet I am friends with people who have whole brains. Even though I was born with physical disabilities that are not noticeable until I am in a situation where I need help, I am friends with others who do not have physical disabilities. I am also friends with people who have other types of physical disabilities. I do not have a mental disorder or illness but I am friends with people who do have mental disorders and illnesses.

I am vertically challenged with a height of 4'10 and 1/2, but I am friends with people taller and shorter than me. I have a girly figure that is all real head to toe and am friends with people that are "plainer" than me and "more voluptuous" than me.

I don't wear makeup, fake hair or false eyelashes, don't paint my nails, don't curl or straighten my hair, don't pluck or wax my eyebrows, don't have tattoos and piercings, don't wear revealing or offensive clothing, don't have leg hair to shave or wax. I am friends with people who wear makeup, do paint their nails, do curl or straighten their hair, do pluck or wax their eyebrows (can you say ouch!), do have tattoos, do have piercings, do wear clothes that show off their bodies, do wear clothes that show offensive pictures and messages, do have leg hair to leave and let grow or shave or wax. I don't know if any of them wear false eyelashes or not, so I can't say. Some of them do wear hair extensions though.

I don't wear push up bras and am grossed out by push up bras and will never get fake boobs or enhancements anywhere, but I am friends with people who do wear push up bras and who do like to get enhanced anywhere on their bodies.

I tan easily and have somewhat darker, somewhat lighter skin naturally, and am friends with people who don't tan and who have light colored skin. I am also friends with people who have skin coloring darker than mine.

I have black eyes - it is a color option on some forms to fill out - but am friends with people who have brown, blue, green, gray, violet eyes and eyes that can change usual and unusual colors. I wear soft contact lenses and am friends with people who have perfect vision, people who wear glasses and people who are blind.

I am a bubbly, friendly person and am friends with people who don't like to socialize and who don't smile a lot.

I am a Christian and am friends with people who are not religious at all and people who are religious and of other religions. I am also friends with people who are of different Christian denominations than myself

I am half Chinese, 3/8 Black and 1/8 Choctaw Indian but I was able to have a friendship for a few months on the Internet with a White Supremicist and not show my picture or tell my ethnic history.

I support Barack Obama and am friends with people who do not support him.

I am 34 years old and am friends with people both older and younger than me.

I am female and have male friends.

I am straight and have gay friends.

I want to wait til I am married even though I never even had an offline boyfriend, first willing kiss or romantic date before I got sexually and physically abused every day for seven months when I was 32 years old, and I am friends with others who did not get raped and who do like to have premarital sex.

I am very artistic in that I can write, draw, paint and design things, and am friends with people who are illiterate in the artistic realms.

I was raised with Christian rap and rock and am friends with people who are against Christian rap and rock.

I use the Internet religiously and am friends with people who do not use the Internet. I watch tv and am friends with people who do not watch tv.

I am getting back into being awake during the day but as a result of the ptsd from the sexual and physical abuse, I met and became friends with people who are awake at night and asleep during the day.

I am illiterate in matters of geographic directions and am friends with people who do not get lost easily.

I'm not afraid to ask for help if I need help and am friends with people who don't like to ask for help. I am not afraid to speak my mind and am friends with people who keep to themselves. I am a huge chicken when it comes to tempers and such and get stress ailments, but have friends who are not afraid to get up in other people's faces in those times of emotional adversities.

I love cultured and ethnic foods and drinks and I am friends with people who just like their own food and drinks. I love certain types of meat even though I love animals and am friends with people who don't eat meat. I love to eat certain types of raw fish and am friends with people who think it is gross to eat. I love dogs and cats as pets and am friends with people whose birth countries house people who like to eat dogs and cats. I am easily freaked out by certain insects but my family's ethnic background in some of those countries eat those bugs. I love turtles being I am from Hawaii but am friends with people who are from a country that drink turtle's blood. I think bats are cute and look like mice with wings, but I am friends with people who come from a country that eats bats. I stopped eating shark fin soup after I heard of some sharks attacking humans and am friends with people who eat shark fin soup. When I was a little girl, my family had black bear skins on their car seats and I myself am not into bear skins. I had and still have a sheep skin rug and am friends with people who are not into sheep skins.

My brother, sister and I all have naturally curly hair but we each have different types of curls. I have springlets that can be long ringlets like Shirley Temple, regular curls, long and loose ringlets, frizzy curls, relaxed, straight as ever, a combination of stuff or everything stated all at once, just from air and water. My brother has curls like Justin Timberlake's except my brother's hair is black. My sister has short, kinky curls that can't grow out beyond her shoulders for some reason.

I have subtle but sharp dimples and my mom says they are not inherited.

I stand up for my friends and even put myself in harm's way for them and am friends with people who think people should only look out for themselves.

There are more differences in friendships in my life but I just showed the biggest differences personally, biologically and physically.
