  1. I have so few true connections in this world...
    I am dying to find people who I can talk to on a deeper level but it seems no matter how I try Im either misunderstood or belittled for my beliefs.
    I have so much to say but no one to listen so much to hear but no words spoken...
    Its been like this my entire life and now I am getting further away from people instead of gaining the closeness I long for.
    I see things differently than those around me.
    I guess Im looking for people in the same situation, Im sure theres someone....just to talk with about lifes experiences.
    With love,
    Sasha

    Umm...it's with whom... but that's cool...

    I've had the same problem...all you can really do is just take every opportunity you get to meet people and keep your mind open and figure out just exactly what it is you looking for in a friend. Don't kiss ass, don't make stuff up, don't exaggerate too much...just be yourself. I know everyone says that...but I don't think you're really friends with someone unless they know exactly who you are, not just the parts of you that you let them see.

    Try making friends with people who are older than you. Since I had my son, I don't really have any friends under 25, but not over 65...hehe...it's a wide range, but they know so much more than people my age and have helped me in so many ways that the stupid kids in my age group couldn't have even concieved of... :D

    Good luck! Keep smiling.

    This is a very cellular society and on top of people being disconnected, many don't have the time, patience, or attention span to really get to talkin or listenin. I'm happy to listen if'n you wanna bitch or rant to me. I can't promise I'll understand and I can't promise that I'll be good company because the internet is so impersonal but I'm gettin better because almost all my friends now live in different states so I'm having a lot more conversations through email. I know what you mean about being and seeing life differently. I move slowly, and that is not welcome in such a fast paced world. I often have differing views and it's really difficult when you disagree with with people who don't treat you as an equal; like teachers, bosses, and governments and such. So like I said if you wanna speak I can listen. jcliff@guilford.edu

    Don't worry...it will come. I learned that for myself just recently. About a week ago I felt like there was no way I'd ever find someone who was similar to me. I didn't think I would ever be able to really connect with someone. And I am shy and have a difficult time meeting people. But then I met someone through these forums. And they proved me wrong. :) I think it just happens in its own time. Hang in there. :)
