It's sad that some of us feel so unable to speak our truth with potential friends and friends/family. I have a few folks I'm friends (not really
close) with that I can talk about some spiritual/metaphysical things with, some I can talk about the "ghostly" type of stuff with, some where organic
food, alt health is okay to talk about...but no one but ATS when it comes to the state of the world, lies we are told, things like my concerns about
vaccines, fluoride, economic collapse possibilities, time skips, and erosion of our rights....etc. Not a one.
As for dating - I don't even know if I could date someone or get serious with anyone that I couldn't share my true thoughts with. I'd love nothing
more than to have a deep thinking guy who is open-minded, questions things, has a spiritual depth (not a religious bent), who likes to read, learn,

I did lose a friend I believe over "ghostly" stuff. She and I talked all the time about metaphysical topics, books, law of attraction, Seth books, all
sorts of fringe, new-agey stuff, but when I had very scary "ghost" things happening in my home at one point (shadow people, toys moving, doors
slamming, cats scared out of their minds and not wanting to come in, etc.), and I was looking for some moral support, she sort of disappeared out of
my life. I was there for her when her cat died, when her dad died, when her sister "disowned" her, when she broke her ankle and needed a ride to and
from work for weeks on end -- I thought we were "sisters" on a path - and whoops, she was gone. That really did hurt and left me very shy about
talking to anyone about anything that isn't "mainstream."
