    Overly Positive People Drive Me Nuts!!!!!!!!

    I have a friend who has a friend who is overly positive.  Almost to the point you want to puke.  I really like my friend and have a hard time putting up with her friend.  Any help out there?

    It's Crazy

     Being positive is a good thing, don't get me wrong. But when you're so positive over things that it doesn't even matter, then I just want to punch your lights out. I went to high school with a girl who was like that and I just didn't understand if she did it for the...

    Isn't There a Limit?

    It's one thing to be optimistic about things and thinking positively about outcomes, but to be SO high on the positive end of the polar scale that you sound ridiculously stupid about what is happening or what is going to happen is irritating as all Hell.  Isn't it...

    What are you hiding? Such a smiling depressive you are! People like you are definitely overcompensating! You say that everything is good and well, pretending that everything is perfect giving people false hopes and making fraudulent promises... WTF I swear you want to force...

    Mr. Optimist

    This guy does not see the glass as half full- he sees it as FULL. So I fall down due to my clumsiness of tripping over that bump in the cement in front of this so called optimist, and he's like,"Well, at least you aren't dead!" I'm like,"I'll show you who will be dead if SOMEBODY...

    Positive Sayings -- Grrrr

    Ok - I know that they are for the best. But when you are really down, and blue, and some chipper little girl bops in and tells you all these positive sayings ... when you know they have never had a true love yet, never lost anything yet, never lived yet. I just want...

    However...

    I am annnoyed by overly positive people, however I'm also annoyed by overly negative people. I prefer people who have a balance; an awareness that there are good things and bad things, and you can't expect one or the other constantly. People who only expect the good or only...

    Not only am I annoyed by overly positive people, I absolutely loathe them! I hate people you look at the world as a good place, because it's not! The world is a cold dark place which shows no mercy to those who are less fortunate. So, my words to those who are overly positive is...

    I am in no way saying that I am a totally negative person, but but as much as life may be one big bowl of cherries,  there is more pitts than fruit, it seems, so what is there too be so positive abou, all the time?

    Happy Thoughts....

    My ten year old step sister is way, over the top too overly postive. I know that she is ten and all, but seriously... Why is she so happy? I hate that little thing about her. It annoys me soooo much. We have to share a room, so I am stuck with perkiness for six more years...

    There Is Nothing Wrong With Admiting Something Is Crap, Once In A While.

    Hi, For a while there I wondered if I'm not seeing the light enough, or is the person I'm with I'm dating someone who is overly positive about things sometimes, almost to the point of being campy. It is annoying at times. If the situation at hand is ******, then just admit...

    I love people who express positive approach in their dealing and decisions. But sometimes overly positive people tend to be arrogant, assertive. And I get easily annoyed, noticing their over confidence shows lack of sensitivity towards what is genuinely called wholesome...

    It was so annoying talking to my friend today, well, almost every time I talked to him. He has nothing negative to say about anything, if I mentioned something I don't like he would just put up some good word and tell me to look at the better side. It is true that we need some...

    They Don't Get It

    My life is ******. People who are positive haven't put themselves out there enough, haven't taken enough risks to put themselves in a position to be screwed over by people. I don't dislike the fact that they're positive. I dislike the fact that they're in lala land and oblivious...

    and i hate it! Sometimes we need to have this negative side so when everything else fails, we are a bit prepared for it. Positive people are the idealistic ones. Realistic is far way better than idealistic!
