Ok, so I have this paranoia…namely, the fear of running off, or thinking that I’m running off people that I’m really interested in getting to know as a friend (not pursuing in the style of a physical relationship). I know that I have a fairly strong personality when I can manage to carry on a relaxed conversation and can be over-whelming for people who don’t expect my openness. I also know that I have a bad habit of rambling about the most off-topic shit when I’m in an uncomfortable situation, and as such, have developed the habit of just not saying anything, which can be off-putting as well. Not to mention coming off as pushy when wanting to hang out with a new person. So, with all that said….

What about my personality has attracted you into my circle of friends, or has caused you to question whether or not you really wanted to be friends with me? I’d rather have everyone cool with signing their names, because I can take criticism, especially when I ask for it. But, for those of you who aren’t, you’re welcome to sign anonymously and not sign your name at the end of your post.

Seriously though, I’d really like to know the opinions of you all. This is something that I’ve had an issue with for a while, and if possible, I’d like to get an idea of what’s appropriate and not appropriate in meeting people. But please, if you’re offering advice, I already know about the “be yourself” advice, and that’s usually the problem. πŸ˜€

  1. I’m afraid all I would have to say would be entirely positive.
    Perhaps someone interesting to you would find you somehow off-putting,but I can’t imagine how.
    Of course I suffer from the same paranoia.

  2. hmmmm…

    see, i don’t really know you. i knew you vaguely from the AAW chatroom as a reg there, and knew some of the minor dramas you were getting into.

    frankly, much of what you post is greek to me as i am not privy to knowing more of you. im not up on your relationships, preferences, your life in general. what im doing now is watching you talk and putting it all together.

    what i do know is that you are an attractive, articulate young woman, you like guns, and you aren’t afraid to speak up about yourself or what you like. you intrique me, and that is why i am here.

  3. I have some ideas about how I appreciate you, but I don’t have the words formed in the right place yet.

    I’d like to say you’re a fiercely intelligent direct no bullshit old soul who’s just enough of an iconoclast to be worth paying attention (to).

    Doesn’t hurt that you’re quite a looker, but that’s a nice luxury rather than a foundation.

    Yeah, I’m stumbling.

    Plus, you have good taste in music. πŸ˜‰

  4. thoughts of you….

    Well you are one of the first people I met when I moved up here so I’ve had some time to develop opinions about you…

    Pros: you are opinionated and not ashamed of your convictions. You also have a good sense of humor and (most importantly for me) you are pretty smart.

    Cons: you are opinionated and not ashamed of your convictions. This makes you a little bit of a pitbull. I appreciate this because it is a failing which I also have. You can change my mind about something but I need to see a whole lot of data to be convinced.

  5. Well kiddo, I can say that from the first time I met you, I knew “This was a girl I wanted to know for the rest of my life.” You are indeed very intelligent which means your like the only person I can have a meaningful conversation with. You said something about goin on about random stuff in weird situations, try to see that as a positive, I do the same thing but intentional as a conversation starter. You’re very strong, willed and with your views on things and you don’t hold back I love that about you and that quality is hard to find in this world. Also you are only one of two people I have chose to share all things about my life with…though you were voluntary I wanted to share with you and the other well that was by accident and I was forced to. But more important to me, you have been there for me when I needed you and you have been a great friend to me, and I do my best to return the favor. So all-in-all like most others nothing but good to say, but I hope it helped in some way. Have a great day. Be good, be safe and I’ll see ya on the other side.
