I'm not certain that people ever truly get to know each other. But I do know that people can get very close. Can feel that they are free to share with others. I don't think that I could ever find that sort of relationship, whether a romantic or platonic sort. I don't even think I know myself. It makes me feel very young when I think about it that way and keeps me from being too sad about it. The problem is believing without a doubt that not a single person ever will want to know me even if I want to know them. It's probably not a rare situation for people to find themselves in but it can get tiring when it's a life long affliction.
