Okay, I'm not too good with talking (hoping it will be a little different here) and, don't really like people (although from what I've heard you're all not like "people.") Wait, I'm getting off track. Okay, my name is Apples. Apples, not Apple, Apples. (See, I get people calling me Apple a lot because Apples is plural and I'm only one person.) Anyway, I've recently started reading up on Otherkin and believe I may be one. I may not, but a lot of the things that I've felt my whole life are explained when it comes to Otherkin. Like, me never understanding why people are so freaking dumb about certain things! (Like what everyone is having problems with is so easily solvable. I just don't understand why it's a problem.)But, I digress. Let's see. I have "trust issues" as some like to call it. I just like knowing more about a person before I'll be all "friend- friend like" with them. Not saying I'm not nice or wont get along with people. I just want some kind of introduction before they go adding me and such. What else is there? Oh yes, I'm Pagan and proud. I'm getting married in two years. And, would definitely like to learn much, much, more about Otherkin even if I end up not being one.

~Merry Meet, Apples.

If I can dream of walking in a dream, how can I tell I'm not dreaming now?

We're all like "people"...because we're all currently human. We may not be like a lot of people, but we're still moved by the same things most other humans are and do and feel generally human things. Comes with the territory of being human here and now.

I personally would like to read more about why you think you're otherkin. Trust issues and not understanding the motivations of the human race are pretty human. We're complex creatures resulting from thousands of years of evolution...there's a lot about other people we either can't or won't ever understand.

Welcome to OKP!

Why'd you choose the name Apples? And it seems significant that it's plural, how come?

No, no see, it's not that I think I am otherkin. Say I might be, I might not. I'm not going to put a definable yes or no on the subject until I do much more research. I realise that of course otherkin will be human and like "people" but, like I said, it's what I've been told. I've never actually met any otherkin so I have no idea what they are like. So, why do I think I might be otherkin? Well, to be honest when I read the generic (and I don't know if any of this is true or even generic because I don't know any otherkin) thing about not feeling quite right in my own skin. It's hard to explain. Maybe I am just human. That's always an option for me. It just doesn't feel quiet right calling myself that.

I've always used that name in place of or with my own name. And, it's plural because that's the way it is. I don't really analyse it too much. It just annoys me when people say Apple when I prefer to be called Apples that's all.

Dunno where you heard that, because every single member of OKP is:

a) "like people"
and
b) actually people anyway

What problem are you referring to?

Re: I guess this is were I say hello.
Okay, so yeah, I come here to learn and, I'm greeted with amazing amounts of hostility. I think of something as a possibility for myself, never claiming I was said thing only that it was a possibility and, I am beaten down for it! Because I didn't know anything about a subject I've almost never heard of, I'm ridiculed and belittled for not knowing things. Because I came here to "get first hand accounts on what's what." I get met with coldness. Fine. Not that it is new to me or anything. Maybe I'm just a little off. It would have been nice getting my information on this subject first hand but, I see that is very unlikely here at least. It's like I'm on trial for thinking something might be a possibility! For thinking that just maybe this could explain myself. The reasons for not knowing why it feels weird to breathe, to sleep, to eat. The reasons even though there are people all around me I still feel all alone! Maybe these are all normal human things. I'm fine with that. Maybe I'm just a confused person. I don't like that but, I can get through it. Maybe I am otherkin. It would be a real eye opener and, I'd imagine I'd have some adjusting to do. But, I'd get through that too. I don't know. That was why I came here! To find out things. Get answers. I see now that I'll have to ask my own questions. And, hope to find them without talking because, every time I open my mouth I get smashed down. Do me a favour. Let this thread die. Just let me leave. It will be like I was never here. I wish you all the best. Thank you for at least proving to me that I most likely am not otherkin. Since I know little to nothing about it I won't rule it out completely but, it's probably not the answer I'm seeking. I'm probably just confused.

No, no, you misunderstand! We're not hostile, we're merely curious! Therefore we ask questions to better understand where you're coming from. I don't see anyone's questions in this thread as being overly hostile, simply that people are asking you legitimate questions. Which, of course, you can simply say that you don't want to answer. We're ok with someone not having all their answers yet!

We may come across as less than kind, but I can assure you, we are honestly trying to help you. Just relax, and try to calm down. We really are nice once you get to know us. We just tend to take a more scientific/questioning approach than other forums, that's all.
