    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.

    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.

    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.
