i've discovered i am not such a trusting person anymore. perhaps, that is something that changes with life and experience. perhaps i am just not as naive as i sometimes wish i were. when something comes along that seems too good to be true, you can bet your ass it most likely is....
i know i am a candid kind of gal...maybe too candid. i just think when you meet people through this medium you should toss all your proverbial cards on the table. people don't. (yeah, i know, tell me how damn obvious that is) i understand they want to impress you. that is one thing... but sometimes they shape themselves to what they think you want. come on folks, that shape isn't likely to hold. do they think they will catch the ball and run with it and not fumble all over their deceptions? i truly hate having to look at people cynically. yet, i have begun to measure words carefully, to ask my own cryptic questions, and to - especially - not create potential from pronouns.
the problem with all this..... i just may be wrong. someone will come along who is sincere and truthful and i will be cynical and doubtful and completely miss the boat.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
