    I Don't Understand People....

    I don't understand people at all. One of these people is someone I know outside this site. I bend over backwards for her, and the day that I have a bad day and decide to give her a chance to be there for me, she decides to throw it in my damn face, and than tells me, if I...

    Men Are Too Weird

    I can't deny that. What's wrong with them, really?

    People don't make any sense to me

    when it comes to my own life. Now, I can understand other people's problems with people very quickly and very well. It's not uncommon for people to be taken aback by my insight. My inability to understand my own life is especially irritating in light of this. People seem to...

    Why All The Drama?

    Don't I sound like a hypocrite? I'm one of the most dramatic people I know, and I'm complaining about drama. Aren't I awful? But really, my friend is really sad, and she's always really sad, and she is genuinely the most wonderful person in the world. She's so nice, and she'd do...

    I don't understand why people portray

    themselves to be something that they're not. Why would a person assume that acting one way and then doing things that go against everything they said they were is going to build lasting relationships with people? I understand the need many people feel for acceptance, but wouldn...

    Not At All

    I can understand myself (and that took years to accomplish) and yet I cannot fathom anyone else. I wish I knew what people were feeling and how all that played out into life. Family, friends, associates, people, they all play out in their own way apart from me. I feel so unique...

    So, I'm in college and in one of my classes I

    sit behind a girl I find very attractive. The first few classes we didn't really talk except for small group discussions we were doing. Eventually, we started talking and she started opening up about her inner geek and other inane stuff, even admitting to thinking she might have...

    It's upsetting. If only people shared what was

    really on their minds, without holding back.

    I don't understand why some people use their

    real names and pictures on the internet, when they are obviously sharing such deeply personal stories. Maybe I'm just an abnormally private person, but the thought of other people knowing so much about me is frankly, terrifying. Especially when you consider the fact that I know...

    I have depression and

    when I tell people about it they take it like a joke. When somebody says there suicidal people shouldn't take that as a joke but, they do.

    Seems basically all people

    when they hit their 40s become lazy and let themselves go, its sad to see and they just end up with their wife/husband without being in love, not livin life to its fullest, i guess they just end up taking everything for granted?

    Seriously?

    People are confusing. One moment they're happy and chatty with you, then they're cold and distant the next. What gives?! Honestly, I think one of the greatest mysteries in the world is...people.

    Sometimes i just don't understand people.

    They yell at you for putting up fake stories, then get mad when you say that they're fake because it implies that they're dumb. They say that your story is too short when you worked so hard, then complain it's too long if you just threw a couple of sentences in. And if I didn't...

    No really, I don`t understand, can`t fathom how or why those social concepts came up. I don`t get other women, so I`m kind of a tomboy, but then I don`t get guys either. Why do they obcess over sports, beer and all those frat party things, why do insist on being jerks or...

    I don’t understand people. Not at all. Not one bit. It seems you can never take their word on anything...and you are better off, way better off just keeping your distance and not getting too close either. Sad. Very sad. I know, motives, agendas, self-preservation, what do I...

    I don't understand when people ask

    for help and then just don't accept it. Make up your mind and know what you want. Either you want help or you don't. If you want someone to help you, listen to you and someone comes in offering you that help, then let him bloody help you. Don't just ignore him. Otherwise, you'd...
