    Dinner And A Show With Little Brother

    Having just had knee surgery this past Thursday, my girlfriend, who is on crutches and home bound for a few weeks is already going stir-crazy. She wanted to get out of the house for a bit so I decided to take her to dinner. After some debate, we settled on a home cooking style...

    Its Like...

    What the hell are you staring at?! Whenever someone stares at me, I start to get self-concious. I always worry if I have something in my nose or teeth or if my liner is smudged and looks stupid. I also think if I have a huge growing pimple or something. That's why I look and walk...

    It just makes me feel

    so awkward. I feel like they're judging me and they're judging me hard. >.> And I feel their thoughts aren't pleasant ones. Then I get all insecure about what I look like....

    Yes... I hate wondering

    if they are looking at my pimples, my fat stomach, man shoulders or my scarily large boobs... I absolutely hate this attention. I only like when people text me or walk up to me to talk to me...

    They stare at me like they know me.

    Sure, I wear big men's clothes with skinny jeans and sneakers, but they don't even know me. Before you "assume," you should try the new trend called "ask."

    So I have anything on my face, pants, jacket or hoodie? If not then I'm not worth looking at.

    You can glance at me

    but if you're staring at me hard then we have a problem. When people stare at me I feel eyes peeking through my soul and that's uncomfortable. But at the same time it gets annoying when people get mad that you're just glancing at them. They should complain when I'm staring at...

    for no reason? Maybe my looks or my weight? I just wish people stop! I don't wear revealing cloths or showing off! I'm just me!

    I went to dinner with my mom tonight

    and an older gentleman proceeded to stare at my the whole time until I told my mom and she gave him a look then he didn't look at me again. Glad she was there, I just hate going in public because people have staring problems.

    I simply cannot even begin to put my

    unbelievable amount of discomfort into words. Regardless of whether or not you actually are, if I feel you are staring at me I feel an overwhelming desire to dig myself a hole and hide in it.

    You do it all because of others.

    You use make-up and all the pretty clothes because you don't want to be judged and you want to be pretty to others so you can be confident.Try going outside without ANY make up on and dress like you feel like and what you really want.You won't be confident and you are not free.So...

    It leaves me off edge,

    it makes me really self conscious unless I'm taking with some of course then it's different. But if you are so bored that you do nothing but sit there and stare at me, and or your interested on what I may be doing and just stare. Don't! It makes me hell break a nervous...

    Last week I had to go to my local home

    improvement store. I usually go in the middle of the day to avoid any semblance of a crowd. Thus I had the place mostly to myself - except a few hardy contractors. I went to the sole clerk, who had no line. I avoid those automatic check outs because I invariably mess up and need...

    Take A Picture, Why Don't You?

    It always bothers me when people stare at me and I make eye contact. I'm not sure if they're staring at me because they like/hate what I'm wearing, because of my hairstyle, because of my ethnicity -- whatever it is! It's even worse when you look back and they're still staring at...

    Seriously. It's the most uncomfortable thing in

    the world! And the excuse of well they might think you're attractive is invalid. Glancing occasionally with a smile is flirting. Staring is rude and creepy. Lol

    I absolutely hate when people stare me in my

    face. That's when I act like a stereotype. Don't look me in my face and don't speak. Like can I help you if not look somewhere else. If you think I'm cute say so and keep it moving. If don't like something about my look then look somewhere else.
