Hello everyone,

First off im not really shy i just hate introducing my self, I can never think of what to say. (same thing goes for sending first messages to people you want to get to know) I much prefer to listen then to talk, though there are a few things I love talking about passionately. Anyways since this is a Kin site I suppose that would be a good topic to start with.

So im not entirely sure what kin I am. before I learned of Kin I was learning about vampyres and very strongly identified with the archetype since i do require feeding off the energy of others and have a natural affinity to work with it, which caused me to get my level 2 certification in Reiki which im very proud of. However I don't exhibit all of the normal traits, and yet I have other traits that are directly influenced by those around me. Its easiest to describe like say a warm putty of some kind, like play-do. I take on the general traits of any kin type and even personality of those around me and after leaving their influence I retain it until it slowly melts back into a neutral state. But in short im not sure of what I am. I have many traits that seem to conflict and im here to find answers and to feel a "kin-ship" (Ha see what I did there? sorry that was bad) with people who understand things like this. i was a member on another board a long time ago but as far as i can tell its been shut down (or i just cant remember the name properly). But another big reason is because i had a very unsettling experience about.... 7ish years ago and could never find a answer or description of what it was. no one could help me when id tell them as they had no idea BUT while skimming over things i found a answer here. and as such i hope to be able to talk to the poster more directly about it.

Anyways i hate these open questions that are vague and without direction i would love to introduce my self based off some questions but i usually need a question to answer to talk about things.

Thank you for your time
Welcome <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> It's possible that your kintype is some sort of polymorphic entity. That being said, humans in general are wired to mimic others in order to fit in, so be careful not to conflate perfectly normal human things with non human things.
Thank you and while yes some aspects can be attributed to normal human sub conscience desire to fit in some of it is harder to pass off as that. while it may very well be but its harder.
Welcome to OKP!

Was the other forum by any chance Otherkin Alliance? If so, yes, it was shut down a few years ago.

As to your description of your 'kin type, I agree with Sera that it sounds polymorphic. Like some form of energetic shapeshifter.

And what member were you looking for? We've been really slow lately so you may need to send a pm or email to get a reply from them. <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->

Again, welcome!
