I have met a couple of interesting people in my life , what made them interesting to me was that they had similarities with me , and people who i admired , people who made me laugh and people who were so compassionate . It usually ends up with me wanting to know them or be with them , i develop attachment . I can't say who was the most interesting .

The truth is that anyone who makes you feel good is going to be interesting , but in reality you are interested in the feelings , not the people , that's how selfish people are without even realizing .

A homeless man who played the harmonica with the most soul I'd ever heard.
Slept beneath a bridge, wore a gucci jacket.
Used to be married to a very wealthy woman who divorced him and hired a hitman to murder him so that he couldn't take her money. < that's what he said, anyway...
He had a credit card and 600 dollars hidden in his shoe.


... maybe he mugged someone? Maybe his story held some truth?

Also, a dentist/painter/explorer who has 4 children- adopted from all over the world. Has been everywhere/seen everything... and is still a dentist fulltime.
Wore very fancy shoes and a wedding ring on her right hand.

Once an old man I met on the Internet gave me one of his unpublished books as a gift, considering that we trusted each other. Once I read it, I understood he was a wiseman. When he dies, I will do whatever to see that book published. These kind of men are anonymous genius while they 're alive like Van Gogh, but I'm sure that his posthumous enormous talent will be internationally recognised someday.

My adoptive grandpa was pretty interesting, he'd nonchalantly say things about WWII, and only tell stories when the attention was captured and everyone was eager, so each anecdote meant so much more than an old guys rambling.

My grandfather, no doubt. He has done EVERYTHING in life. A true genious. A great man indeed. Homo Universalis, a modern Da Vinci.

wow, some good examples in here

two of the most interesting people i have meet, 1 is my closest friends, the other is another friend of mine

the first, is only 22 and has been all over north america, lived in many different states and has many different jobs all over. has partied in more places then i have been to my self, and has befriended more people then i have ever met.
guy had stories for days. him, his dad, his brother are all the same way

the other, is even younger, just turned 21. overdosed on every major drug(at once) at the age of 16, yet survived to tell about it. has experienced more things by the age of 18 then most people should have. delt with many tragedies in his life, many triumphs in his life. he also has stories for days, many good and funny, many sad

both these guys have lived life with drugs and alcohol, yet they are two extremely good people, i am beyond jealous of the life these guys have lived


anybody else meet any interesting people?

i have always wanted to sit down with homeless people and hear their stories, i love hearing stories of peoples lives, especially when they are not the normal lives.

a kid i went to school with went train hopping around the western usa, meet a bunch of people doin the same, its very dangerous because people are defensive about their train cars haha, but sounded interesting haha

I used to volunteer at a free clinic.

I met a homeless man who was there practically every time I volunteered. He told me he used to be a pilot in the airforce, and had flown missions around the world. He had incredible, detailed accounts of every place he said he had been, and even one story where his plane crashed near a Mayan temple and he had to camp out inside the structure, hunting for food and surviving alone for two months before a search party found him.

And I have to agree with you.

I would probably have to say my former best friend (I only say former because she disappeared to Germany and I haven't heard from her since ).

She was just so different from everyone else, in the sense that she was a non-conformist by nature (not because she wanted to look "cool" or be a rebel and boast about how she shunned society). She genuinely did not care what anyone thought of her, and was beautiful and unique (also physically beautiful).

Haven't met anyone like her since.

Haha, I sound like I'm in love with her, don't I? Nah, but she was so special to me, I really miss her.

I met an a man who had spent his life getting to know the widflowers of the Royal National Park in Sydney. He knew the identity of thousands of the multi coloured species. It really opened up an amazing world that inspired my love of botany and especially that of the Sydney sandstone flora.

I can't say I ever met anyone interesting, everyone I know is "normal". The only interesting person I've known all my life is me.

Probably a coach I knew back when I boxed. This man was like the yoda of boxing. I would sit for hours and listen to his stories about the Canadian Navy,fighting bare knuckle fights for any scrap of food and money while stationed in Puerto Rico. He would tell me about his journey from the navy to the ring at the 1956 olympics in Australia.After that he became a coach and hes been all over the world from russia to Iraq (where he said he shook saddam husseins hand) . As a coach hes been to 7 olympic games now and hes still going strong at 87. Hes a pretty interesting guy haha.
