    When At Lunch...

    sometimes when i'm out for lunch or coffee with a friend, and go to the bathroom i'm gone for about half an hour.  And when I get back to the table they're like "why were you gone so long" ... and I then have to explain it's because I caught my own reflection...

    Just A Bit Vain

    Yes I admit it I am. And I like getting attention and flirting. Sometimes if I slack off I'lll put on a few pounds (I love to cook and love good food and wine). When I do, I quickly get to a point where I hate the way I look and I diet and start working out again to get...

    Is It Me?

    Is it because of something that I did or said -- or who I am -- that made my friend not talk to me any more? Or does it have nothing to do with me, and she is just busy. I can't help but feel it must have something to do with me. That is vanity, though, isn't it?

    I'm totally vain but not to the point

    where I'm arrogant about it. I just enjoy taking pride in myself and the way I look. Why do people shun it so much?

    I Will Get Over This!

    This serious case of vanity started up just a year ago when my father passed away. I keep acting as if everything revolves around me and pulling fits when someone denies something I say about myself. I constantly claim to be "stronger than most women" (yeah right) and...

    I'm Vain But It Doesn't Mean I'm Also Shallow.

    I was a very unattractive child. My own mother often told me how ugly I was. As I grew older, very thin with buck teeth and way too much body hair for a kid, I was teased at school and made to feel less than human because of my looks. Times changed, I developed, I learned about...
