    People Feeling Comfortable Around Me

    It seems like no one really feels comfortable around me. I always wondered, is it because I never had any intimate contact with a girl. I notice like other people introduce themselves to me, and then want to leave all of a sudden. Why when I am around other people, they act like...

    Trying To Improve

    I've always been insecure, since I was young. I've never been huge, but a curvy average weight. I've always been small chest wise, with a larger butt. My eyes are brown (plain) sometimes they get yellowish, brown red hair. I don't know I just don't feel as gorgeous as lots of...

    I Can't See It Happening.

    I've never said it outloud, or to anybody but I honestly believe that I'm disgusting. I avoid mirrors and any type of reflection there is when leaving the house. Most of the time if I leave the house, I'll end up in the toilet starring at myself and trying not to cry, then...

    Comfortable In My Own Skin...yes I Want That!!!

    The thing is...you are stuck with you. I mean you can distract yourself for awhile by chasing some other person who you deem wonderful and your soul mate and who you think will make you eternally live in bliss. Or you can pursue busyness to the point that it obscures yourself...

     I feel as if everything I do is wrong, everything I say is wrong, everything I don't do is wrong, everything I don't say is wrong. The only two people who know/care about me think I am a mean and hateful person. They see a clingy, desperate, unsure, self consious...
