People are never who they seem to be. There is always a hidden agenda or thoughts they wouldn't share. Your thoughts are your most private, most personal things. Things which you choose to share with the people you want to share them with.
It's good to meet new people. To hear stories and share moments with people you haven't met before. To create new moments, new memories, new stories. Every new person you meet is a clean slate. Someone you can start anew with. Who doesn't know who you are, why you are the way you are. But then comes the question, do you really behave the same way with everyone you meet or talk to? There is always a bit of embellishment. You might laugh at a joke you would otherwise scoff at. Or eat something you would never otherwise touch. Or listen to a song you always thought was bad. Cursory changes to the outer you no doubt, but the person inside, the core is still the same.
Anyway, getting back to what I began with, people are never who they seem to be. If you can embellish, so can everyone else.
