Alright, What does the state section mean? I am guessing 'just what it says'.
But I don't exactly understand, or know.. hell.. currently I guess I'm just rambling.
I'm getting connected to by the same IP on various ports and the state. Is different things..
Is the guy 'hacking' me, or whatnot. I know it's a person and not just a server..
Proto Local Address Foreign Address State
TCP 127.0.0.1:2656 127.0.0.1:8431 TIME_WAIT

I believe this is what you are looking for.
Source: Netstat States
CLOSED Closed: the socket is not being used.
LISTEN Listening for incoming connections.
SYN_SENT Actively trying to establish connection.
SYN_RECEIVED Initial synchronization of the connection under way.
ESTABLISHED Connection has been established.
CLOSE_WAIT Remote shut down: waiting for the socket to close.
FIN_WAIT_1 Socket closed, shutting down connection.
CLOSING Closed, then remote shutdown: awaiting acknowledgement.
LAST_ACK Remote shut down, then closed: awaiting acknowledgement.
FIN_WAIT_2 Socket closed, waiting for shutdown from remote.
TIME_WAIT Wait after close for remote shutdown retransmission

It was rather simple....
I googled for Netstat +State meaning
I suggest you check out the tutorial by d00dz Attackin if you don't have much experience with google, it is a great resource.
Yes, it's a software loopback. It doesn't use hardware and isn't connected to any network. It's mainly for testing software and checking for OSI Layer 1 issues.

No i knew
No I knew that 127.0.0.1 is a psuedo-IP loopback thingier.. I forgot to state that I was using it for an example. lol and I read the Google Article around the same time I posted and I did find it very useful.. I'm just lazy I guess for not putting time into Googling my problems at times. Sorry guys..
