Really, it takes time and effort to get to know anybody, so many of us feel like we are seen in the wrong light. I just moved to a new state, and I really feel that way now, because I don't know anyone here. How do i come off to them? What is their first impression of me? Should I lay it all on the table, or show myself in small doses? I guess the most you can do is try to know who you are, and just be, and hope for the best.

I'm usually interested in knowing more MEN, but i find i don't really know them until after some intimacy. Fortunately this is easy. upon introducton a friendly pat on the *** or a quick grope (maybe accidently) and within minutes you will have made a friend or learned that this isn't a guy you want to know.

My best friend, I would have to say. We have been friends since 4th grade. About 16 years.(wow) And I have been able to tell her everything. All my deep dark secrets that I haven't told anyone else.
I also find I make friends with men so much easier then women. I hate how women like to talk behind your back when you are not around. I only have a couple close girl friends. A lot more close guy friends.

I think it's great that you have the option to go full out on your personality or give it to people in small doses. Either way, I'm sure you will make friends. I don't have that luxury. People see me and make a decision about me immediately. I'm fat and so I blend into the background of life. People don't really want to see me at all. I understand that. Before I got sick and fat, I used to just be me and not give out small portions of myself. I found that people would respond favorably to me. Whatever you choose, I wish you the best of luck.

My husband of 20 years really knew me. Since his death, I don't have anyone that really knows me. The memories we shared together are only mine now.

My mates a.k.a my boys and my brothers. There the only close people i've ever let see the real me (well i've shown alittle to my dad). I love them and just for fun i wanna name them (John, Maka, Daniel, Fizz, William and Sean).

no one really knows me, I've never told anyone some of the stuff I have to go through, not even my family or friends

One person, my friend Becca. My other friend Chelly knows most of my life, but there are things I've hidden due to her personality.
But I still have my dirty little secret. Not like there will ever be anybody that knows it.

I suppose the one person who knows me completely. He knows pretty much everything. I guess he would have to know my big dirty secret since he is involved in it. So the person who knows me and everything would be the guy that I am having an affair with. I can put on a fake smile for the whole day and tell my husband everything is all right he believes me and never ask again. But the other guy all I have to do is call and right after I say hey he will ask what's wrong. He knows my feelings and why I feel them.

I'm not so sure that anyone really knows the real me. I feel very isolated and alone even when I'm surrounded by people. I'm the person that fades into the background, the person that gets overlooked and ignored so as a result I really don't have anyone to share the real me with. Even my husband has no idea who I am (but to be fair, we have a LOUSY relationship). I would love to have someone out there who knows me, and I know them. I feel like I'm never really myself. There's so much about me - and what goes through my mind - that no one knows. I feel like whenever I have revealed even a tiny piece of myself in the past that I've been burned somehow so it's made me very reluctant to share now. I hate that feeling - that I can't just be me.

true, who really knows anyone?
I don't even know who I am most of the time, I don't share my feelings, hopes, dreams, problems with anyone, I live in fear of being a burden and people will turn their backs on me ... but I guess that wouldn't matter anyway because I feel and am alone. a never ending cycle as it seems ...

No one really knows me. I feel like I have been living a lie. I don't know who I am so how would I expect anyone else to know who I am.

there are very few people who really know me. I have told a select few people who I really am, but i think its only my one closest friend who actually understands who I am and what I going through.

I don't think anyone can ever know you. Everyone has a secret self, so to speak - a side of them that most people, or even no-one ever sees. I think what's important is that one is happy with it or at the very least accepts it. I have many secrets, some of which I used to be deeply ashamed of but I eventually decided that I had to make a choice to either stop behaving or thinking in a certain 'negative' way or to deal with the effects that those actions had on me. I chose the latter. Whether that's the right choice I don't know - it feel right to me at this stage in my life so that will have to do for the time being.

I could of wrote your post. Thats exactly how I feel. I am a mother of four and a business owner...I have had these flashes of thought and a feeling of being alone wondering ...where are you? where have you gone? Nobody knows the real me anymore. Not even myself.
on 04:46PM at Jul 18th, 2008
I put my self out there all the time and still feel that my close people dont know me.

No one really knows me. At all. I can't be honest with anyone in my life about anything in my life & haven't been able to be for most of my life. I have serious social anxiety that has left me virtually without a life, in most ways, for years, so there are very few people in my life to begin with. I've been working on my anxiety a lot over the past year, but because of my complete lack of life experience, I am still unable to get to know people. I am terrified of negative reactions toward my inexperience in a lot of areas, & tend to push people away so that I do not become the one who is ridiculed & the butt of everyone's jokes.
I am already the "wierd" one in my family & elsewhere for so many different reasons, all of them related to my social anxiety, & I don't want to be the "wierd" one to everyone else too. I do hope, though, more than anything, that I will be able to find people I can be open & honest with who will love & accept me as I am & realize that I AM a person, though I have differences in some areas.

I am a very good writer, because I'm imaginative and very intelligent. This also makes me an accomplished liar. As a result, my entire life is a product of my own active mind. Nobody knows the truth except me, and sometimes that is very lonely.

i would say other than my mom who passed away in 2003,my childhood friend TW. and another friend mira who i met like 5 yrs ago and she really seems to connect with me. its like she is in my brain when she replies back to me.

It takes me a really long time for someone to really get to know me. The only person who really knows me is my sister, and even she doesn't know everything about me. So I'm the only person who really knows everything about me.
