i truly don't doubt that amanda32 would be pretty cool to those who know her. but i don't know her, and her post above reads to be judgmental to and of me (outside of what her MBTI may be). and i hold no ill-feelings toward her.
i get that online communications can be subjectively misread or misunderstood, but regardless of how this thread may read, i don't feel "worked up" (ie - triggered) about it. however, i do admit that i was discouraged by reading her comment because I had read that this forum is "friendly" and "understanding"... things i was hoping i would experience here (and still hope to).
i enjoy making connections, but i'm old enough that i don't have any real desire to go out of my way to get to know someone who has shown a lack of understanding for me without (in my view) just cause. that all said, thank you again and i do very much appreciate your thoughts and for welcoming me, SweetSurrender.
YAY for you and for having a best friend who understands you! to feel connected and understood is a true, precious treasure! but can you help me understand what you meant by "no, i don't have any cookies"??
