I guess I deserve to post this here. I am came here because I truly wanted to find friendship and a safe place to talk about polygamy. Instead I found bickering over religion, attacking others, and most of all tons of people making assumptions of why I should be here. Yes, I am a single woman, but not every single woman wants to talk or marry the first person they speak too. There is no respect for space, boundaries, or limits. I know I have no control of the behavior of others, but I do have control over me. I have been here a few weeks and was PMed by someone asking me why I didn't like a specific person. An assumption was made when it was me a new member trying to get to know others. I was nervous, and I wasn't sure what to say to others, and I am also a very private person. I would think that would be respected. That perhaps I didn't want to speak to a man after I was told...I would be getting tons of PMs from them. Maybe that was it. Maybe it was the way the person spoke to me. So I ended up emailing someone sorry. When of course...I didn't feel the way others stated I did. So I took some space, my life is plenty busy and I didn't want to misjudge anyone. I come back and feel like I have been shunned. I know there are many fakes, but one should not judge others solely based on what they FEEL or THINK a person is. They should OBSERVE without judgement, thoughts, or feelings...take people for who they are..no matter what.
