I Am Difficult to Get to Know

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,351 People

    I miss talking to my old friends from here,

    I miss having things to talk bout with them, I miss feeling like they were people I was close with. I hate feeling like we're strangers to each others. Mostly I hate how cold I'm becoming.

    I don't make it easy to know me.

    I WANT people to really know me..to see the real me, but I find it hard to just let people in. I don't tell them that much about me...people on here probably know more about me thru my stories than anyone around here does. I just can't express myself that well in person & it...

    I Am Difficult to Get to Know.

    after all, i've known me since i was born and i'm still finding out new stuff about me. i'm a dreadfully complex being, you see. amorphous and ethereal, impossible to grasp, difficult to view clearly. or like a house with a thousand rooms, many locked even before the walls...

    Somewhat

    Along life we experience things and go through situations which mold who we are. I try not to dwell on my past but inevitably it's left it's mark on me. Leaving me with trust issues..........and therefore I don't really allow people to get 'real' close. It's something I work on...

    I have always been incredibly shy. After being diagnosed with a chronic illness in Junior High, just when you are figuring out how to interact with the opposite sex, I forgot how to be a 13 year old and became a serious little adult, removed and focused on my health. Now I see it...

    I Don't Want To Be Known.

    I seem to only open up to certain kinds of people that strike me as special or different... I don't want the rest of the world knowing me, so I put on a charade. Only a few lucky people will ever get to know the real me and thats how It will stay.

    I am a rather difficult person to get to know

    as I am a very private person. I use my past experiences to help others but that is the extent of people knowing of my past. I divulge no details except to those who truly need my help, and even then I use it a teaching tool and nothing else. The emotions I hide are for the...

    There's so much I don't share with people.

    I prefer to keep things to myself and know that people can't use it against you later. It's just easier to keep your heart than to let it be broken.

    People often have trouble getting to know me.

    I often keep quiet and keep my opinions and thoughts to myself. So when I do open up and people do not know if I mean it or am joking.

    When someone gets too close i freak out

    and push them away. There's nothing I could really do about it. It makes me uncomfortable when people get in my personal bubble. Even family or friends.

    I am very hard for people to figure out so it is difficult for some to really know me. I am not one to judge anybody. I do not like to be judged but, some people form an opinion about me without even getting to know me. I am a honest person true to my friends and family. I live a...

    I always have been very difficult to know.

    I am a reserved and quiet person, not to mention the fact that I do tend to isolate myself quite frequently. I love people, I just never know what to say around them. People often times find me stand-offish or even rude because I don't say hi to them when they say hi to me. I...

    Yeah I guess I can be hard to get to know.

    I mean if you ask me questions I will answer honestly, but I am not very easy to approach. I don't show very much emotions, and I am very hard to read, but I am nice enough so there isn't really anything to be scared of.

    Indeed. Getting to know me online will take

    about the same time as it would in person. There's not much you will find out about me in our first few conversations because I don't trust people I've never met outside the internet. go ahead and judge me for it if you like, I just prefer to practice common sense and safety...

    The day someone says this to me with utmost

    It's at times like these,

    when I'm lying in bed and listening to music, that I find myself at my utmost vulnerable. I let the music take over my mood and my emotions follow thereafter. It's such a great yet scary thing to experience.

    Cracks In My Wall

    I have always built walls around myself to hide who I am, and only those willing to take chunks out of it have a chance to see what's inside. To this day, maybe one or two have gone to the effort of doing so. Then I meet someone recently, who without even trying seems to take...

    After being wrong to

    so many times in my life, I'm not great at letting people in. For instance I've recently met a really great friend, but I pushed him away and my fear of being known. I feel like I need to keep a shred of privacy to feel like myself.

    My wandering soul always tell me different.

    I've been betrayed too many times,

    people have used me, therefore I'm constantly looking over my shoulders and keeping my guard up, but if you prove yourself to be trustworthy and loyal, I'll return the favour, no doubt about it.
