    Sometimes I Wonder

    Honestly, I really don't see how anyone would really like me. I mean I know i'm not a bad person and I can be kind, but  i'm not that interesting of a person. What you see is what you get. I don't talk that much so I must be boring, I guess I can see why some people decide...

    Quite a Bit

    I am not so bad as I used to be.  I thought that people were only befriending me in order to do their good deed or alternate to that, to gain ammunition and confirm to themselves why I was not likeable. I still have twangs of that every now and then but have become more...

    I'm the least fun person you'll ever know.

    Small talk makes me cringe and make facial expressions that shouldn't be seen in public. According to many people, I'm oblivious to men and women flirting with me. I've been told that I make people feel stupid, although I never intend to. My idea of fun is sitting at home and...

    Weird!

    I do wonder this... and my paranoid side says that a person doesn't really like me... they're trying to kiss-up for something. :-o But then reality hits me and most people do like me... Some even treat me like I'm some rock star or some angel or something guru of sorts. WHY...

    I'm being brutally honest,

    I don't understand why people are friends with me or like me I don't see the case or why some people take time out of their life to talk to me it always circling around my mind and I can never find the answers why

    Sometimes...

    Not that I know a lot of people or have any real friends in real life, but those that have been in my past I've always wondered what it was about me that they liked enough to want to be my friend. Yeah, yeah, I know it sounds like I'm getting too down on myself, but I'm not. I...

    Which Is Why I

    don't so the self evaluations at work.  What I think of what I do and how good I do it, and what my boss thinks of what I do and how well I do it are two very different things. Cause the customers that I work with will not tell me to my face how good a job that I do but...

    I often have violent and cannibalistic fantasies. Mostly about me torturing and eating people I'm sexually attracted to. Sometimes the other way round.
