    Many people claim to want to meet friends

    and to have deep conversations yet they simply just want to say what they want to say. How can they expect to achieve those things if they aren't even interested in what the other has to say or think? Communication is a two way street, isn't it?

    For many reasons! I'll find holes in your

    stories, I'll figure out the odds of what you tell me to be true. Also because you can miss so many great things in the world if you dont.

    I'm Watching You..............

    When I meet people or go into a new place for the 1st time, I don't really talk much unless I am spoken to. It looks like I'm just shy, but really, I'm observing the whole place. I can listen to 2 or 3 different conversations at once. And I listen to everything. You might think I...

    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...

    I observe people. to see how they.

    ....work. To know how they act. sometimes its even funny watching them. I observe people because if I met them,sometimes I know much about them by observing that I have a less chance of maybe getting hurt. I see the flaws even when they try to act perfect. flaw #1: trying to act...

    In this life there will be pain

    and sorrow. There is also joy and happiness in the big and little things. Love in it's many forms is the greatest thing we do. When I am in despair I always return to that thought and feel blessed.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    One thing i have noticed about this site.

    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...

    Watcher. That's what my mom always called

    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.

    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.

    I See What People Can't See

    I am a very observant person, I see things that other people don't see because they are either too busy to notice, or they don't care. I think there are some things, that have some details in them, and I can spot them out.   Or sometimes i look at things that see trival, and...

    I always prefer observing

    or just listening to other people's behavior. I feel like I learn so much more that way. Some people are so centered in themselves that they're oblivious to the action of acknowledging others. In my cause, I'm love acknowledging others perhaps too much.

    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.
