    So Get Over Yourself!

    The only time I do that is if the person is family and I do it just to keep peace as much as I can at get-togethers.  If I have a CHOICE in whether or not I am going to be your friend, if I choose to be your friend, then I like you.  I am not going to extend...

    I Keep An Open Mind

    You're not always going to agree 100% with someone's lifestyle, but I believe in giving a chance to everyone.  Respect differences.  Once I decide I don't like you (I HATE ABRASIVE KNOW-IT-ALLS), I will maintain respect on a human level, but I will NOT kiss ***. I...

    Am I Too Blunt?

    I just can't act like I care for someone when I don't. I have been accused of being brusque, but I just consider myself to be honest. After all, I am also known to shower some with praise, when deserving.

    What's the Point?

    I don't understand people who pretend to like another. What is the point to it all? I don't make such claims or pretend to like people, if I don't. The reason is, if I don't like a person I pretty much want them to go away! So pretending to like them means that they will stick...

    Great Big Beautiful Smiles

    I do not pretend to like people who I do not like; it may be regarded as some sort of genetic flaw but I simply cannot do it. If someone deserves respect I will gladly give it, if someone shows sensitivity and kindness I will gladly reciprocate, if someone is a low class ignorant...

    Your Feelings...

    Screw them. This may seem harsh, however, if I don't like- expressly dislike- someone, I will not hide my feelings, because I have great reasons for doing so. They have insulted my intelligence, have been rude, or slighted me in some other way. I'm pretty observant, so not much...

    The Open Book

    I don't see the point. Why waste energy on a person who is a complete jackass and/or *****. I couldn't even fake kindness in that type of situation. When it comes to negative emotions, I can't compose myself well enough to fake it. I'm an open book, whether I like it or not...

    I just can't be fake.  I can't lie to people in any manner.  I wouldn't say that I was rude about it, but don't ask if you don't want the truth.

    But I Do Not Go Out Of My Way To Stir Up A Fight

    I try hard not to deceive myself about what I really think of other people. I try not to deceive them. But I also do not go out of my way to light fires, then pour gasoline on them. So when I have grave reservations about people's characters, I very seldom say so to their faces...

    There aren't many people that I don't like but if you are one of them you certainly know it.  I find it too hard to try to cover up my dislike for some people.  I avoid them and if they bite me then I bite them back.
