One question you see online a lot is how to tell if others are real or not. Online it is not as foolproof as it is offline. Offline its quite easy actually. Almost all of us that are different have some kind of tell or way to know if we meet others who are also different. Some it may be a tingle, or a feeling, others it may be tied to scent or energy or sight. For all of the ways and how different they can be they still all tell us the same thing. That one is different.
Let’s say you are out in a grocery store and get an odd feeling. For me it is a tingle in the base of my skull so we will use that in this example. You are in the store and get a strong tingle, for me, that means another is near. Be it vamp, kin, therian or what have you. I can use the feeling and walk around letting it lead me to who the different person is. It is also how I know who is real or not in person.
The easiest exercise for this is simply to go out where there are a lot of people and pay attention to your own body. Do you suddenly feel a tingle, a very odd smell, see a different form of energy, hear or feel or smell or see something different? Practice it. Although it is innately in us, practicing its use will indeed improve it greatly. It can even increase its distance.
Good luck out there, hope this helps some folk realize how to tell who is real or not. 🙂
