I Am Fascinated By Human Behavior

Why do we do what we do? 48,938 People

    I had social anxiety a few years back.

    I had to go through rigorous therapy sessions n through medication. Those were the most horrific years of my life. I'm happy I got past that n I'm better than before. But for obvious reasons, there are always a few remnants of my former self that remain. I have to think a lot...

    The Darkside Of A Shared Reality

    We are rarely satisfied with reality, thus we grab it with both hands and try and mold it with all of our might into the shape of our dreams as if it were made of clay. Like a sculpture we endeavor to spend our days sweat and sleepless nights to bring to life something from deep...

    based on my unofficial recent survey.

    c70 percent of people that responded felt it was ok for a woman to receive oral sex from their pet dog as long as the dog was willing and it was behind closed doors. That's a higher percentage than I thought. Fascinating?

    and hate everything and everyone, why invite yourself out to lunch and ruin it for everyone else? Selfish.

    My husband of 20+ years recently asked me

    which one was the washer and which one was the dryer. I find it fascinating that he has never washed or dried a single garment since we've been together. More fascinating is that I never knew it until now. It's time to learn a new way of doing things.

    I enjoy observing others behavior,

    body language, and environments. At the same time it excites me to not fully understand them and creates an unexplained thrill.

    Why do I keep falling in love with strangers?

    It's not even lust... It's a full blown obsession. I'll think of a person for a week or even months. I'll spin a million fantasies and then they are the most boring person later. Never had a relationship. I do have sexual partners and a few online emotional/sexual ones. This...

    We seem to constantly search

    for ourselves as we are always reconditioned into new ways of thinking. We bring on so many different beliefs and personality traits accidentally, that we make confusion of what we really are, inevitable.
