    I'm an observer... that doesn't mean

    that I pay attention to every detail. I watch people to see what's acceptable in certain situations, because I've been told so many times that I overreact to stuff. So, since I don't have a licensed imagination of my own, I watch other people that have licensed imaginations...

    I Can See Through You

    Four years ago, my husband and I were at the petrol station in Singapore. While waiting in the car for my husband to finish pumping petrol into his vehicle, I noticed a bluetaxi parked at the side of the petrol station. Next to the taxi, I saw a Caucasian man speaking on his...

    People Watcher

    After I get off work I like to go to the local car wash and just sit and watch the intersection and listen to the radio and just chill. It's one of those manual places where there's just stalls and brushes on hoses attached to the wall. And I don't think I've ever seen a customer...

    I Wanna Know What Goes On Around Me

    Call me detail oriented or ocd, but I can't help but notice what goes on around me. I usually don't miss a beat and am very in tune to my surroundings. I generally watch people and don't let my guard down. I am suspicious of certain people at times and their intentions. Maybe it...

    Observer

    I am a shy person, and find it hard to just go into a room full of strangers and start talking. So instead I am the observer. I stand back, talk to the odd person, but usually sit back and just listen and observe the people. In a matter of minutes I am able to make out what kind...

    Headphones

    Does anyone else ever put headphones in and listen to people around you when they believe you cannot hear them. You really can hear some interesting things.

    Observer. I used to think

    that this was my ultimate definition - on the sidelines watching the unraveling of society as it swirled and churned around me. Now I realize that a compulsion to observation is probably more of a symptom of a kind of introversion. Many great scientists are great observers, and...

    My Biggest Secret, Mia

      As many others here on EP did, I would like to share my story. It all started in the summer holidays when I was 15. I wasn't really happy about myself then, there were some problems at home, but besides that I've never really been happy about myself. About the way I look...

    Watcher. That's what my mom always called

    You See, I Observe.

    Being an observer is a blessing to me.  I see everything, I constantly analyze the world around me, and I never forget a single thing.  People, landscapes, anything - images are constantly being pumped into my brain where I can only think about them and let them...

    Nothing beats find a nice quiet place to sit

    and people watch. Just sit there and watch, making up stories in your mind about the people. Where they are going or where they have been.

    You need patience to observe.

    Yes observing is not easy. I observe things but I make sure to speak up at most times when I see something that's not right. But again am not perfect and sometimes I can just stand there being a dumb spectator only to realize I should have spoken and stopped it from happening...

    I've been told I'm "intimidating" because I notice everything or because you "can't slip anything by" me. I don't mean to intimidate. Haha, I just like to pick out all the minute details when I look around. People seem astonished when I ask them about cats that they've never...

    I like observing different people (discreetly)

    and seeing how we differ or if we have any similarities if i'm walking down the street or just in a shop i'll look around me and take in my surroundings i tend to make eye contact with everyone when i walk into a room if theres not many people

    Doesn't really matter who they are, but yo have a lot in common. You talk to that same person in real life and A) that hate you or B) they only like texting you.

    The women on here, seem much much different to the one's in real life... In a good way. Why is this? Is it because this site is much different and you can be anonymous, so you can really let your feelings and experiences show, or what? I can't understand it. Most of the women on...
