    going to sound really weird

    but yeah. At this moment I;m not feeling like a big aim or much of a prupose with life, so I like observing what people do and see if there is like an insight into people with a purpose and those with not. I haven't found it. People act differently, they talk differently but the...

    I'm Always Watching.

    I've always been an observer. Ever since i was little, i always watched everyone and everything going on around me. Most people think i don't know anything that's going on, but i do, i notice everything, i know more than most people realize. I pretend to act dumb when i know more...

    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.

    Public Parking Lots

    I could sit for hours in my own vehicle in a parking lot and watch the passer-bys. Wal-Mart is my favorite lot. Mostly because the nearest Wal-Mart to me is in a town that borders Missouri and Arkansas. Even though we are neighboring states, I can assure you, Missouri and...

    I'm surrounded by the world; look in,

    catch a peak, see what I see. The world is different in every way to the eye of the beholder. Take in every surrounding, breathe in every drop of reality, and venture into the unknown. Scan to every horizon, let not even the obscure escape the all seeing eye.

    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...

    The Things You See

    I can sit in a public place and just watch people for hours.  Sometimes it's better than TV.  You've got comedies, the people who can't seem to figure out which way to go. You've got dramas, the people who seem to be mad at the world. You've got your love stories...

    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...

    Whom Do We Really Observe ......!?

    It seems a NATURAL to observe things and people all around much of the time. and at the end of the day, when am ALONE, find OBSERVING myself ! The Nakedness in me is an expression of Exuberance. The act of observation is a TURN - ON at some level.

    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...
