    Crowds Aren't My Thing

    I hate crowds. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it. If I'm in a large crowd of people, I tend to become rather claustrophobic, and it's not a pleasant feeling. Plus the noise...I get overwhelmed very easily by noise. Needless to say, going clubbing is not very high on my...

    Don't get me wrong. I like being around people.

    I am a social person. I'm talking about places where it's so crowded that you can hardly walk without bumping into somebody. The State Fair is like that for me. I love going but I try to get there early before it gets packed.

    Online Only

     I do all my shopping online.  I feel like when I go in stores I have a shirt on that says "look at me."

    Personal Space Required

    I like my personal space and you just can't have that in a crowd. You constantly get bumped and so many people are rude. I'll avoid a crowd whenever possible.

    I feel uncomfortable

    when there are too many people around me in a room. Like for example, being in a restaurant where people from different tables chat loudly or having relatives at my home during thanksgiving. Having a lot of people in the same room will eventually lead them to talk louder so...

    Austin, Texas Should Be Renamed The "crowd Capital Of The World" Instead Of The Live Music Capital.

    I was born & raised in Austin, Texas, but moved when I was around 20. I have since come back, and this place isn't the same at all. I understand that all cities grow, but this is ridiculous. Everwhere I go, there are tons & tons of people. I wake up at 6 in the AM, try to go...

    Lost In a Crowd

    You would think that a person who is shy and doesn't want to be noticed, would be at home in large crowds, where nobody knows who you are or even cares to know. Well, I am not. I hate crowds with a passion. I feel panicky in large crowds, in throngs where people are up close to...

    Why I Hate Crowds

    Crowds of people terrify me.  Everyone is pulsing around you, against you, and there's nowhere you can go, really, to get away from them easily.  Hallways, malls, amusement parks -- all are bad.  Anywhere there's a crowd, I just get freaked out and have to find...

    Anxiety

    I have a personal phobia of crowds. I have no idea why though. Sweaty palms, shaking, blushing, butterflies in the stomach. The symptoms aren't too wonderful to have.

    My Ears

    I worked for a bank for 20 years, the first 2 in a branch and the last 18 in customer services. I had to wear a headset and worked on an inbound multi service team. I hated the job, I was held hostage there by the fantastic salary and the pension. Eventually my ears were...

    Makes Me Irritable And Anxious

    I'm an introvert, and while I like being around others I need time alone to recharge. That said, I can't stand crowds. Too many people, too little space, WAY too much energy. I'm sensitive to other people's energies and emotional states. Being in a large group is emotionally...

    I just do not like crowds of people.

    I feel unsafe, unsecured and like I am consistently being stared at. I am not all that attractive, what are they staring at. I like to run in a store, grab what I need and get out.

    Fear Of People, Multiplied

    I'm an insecure person, low self-esteem, shy...interacting with people scares me. You'd think I would like being lost in a crowd, but I just feel trapped. I don't want anyone to notice me, yet feeling like a statistic makes me feel disconnected, negligible. I don't like people...

    People Irritate Me

    I hate crowds because people don't know how to shower and they've never heard of deodorant!!!! I always feel like pushing people out of the way, crowds make me angry because you get to see and hear the reality of the stupidity that surrounds you....blah!
