    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...

    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...

    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...

    Just Shut Up Already and Be Miserable For Once

    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...

    Positive Sayings -- Grrrr
