    I have no confidence in social situations.

    I can go to a party with people I have known for years, and still stand there not knowing what to say. I cannot go up to a lady and chat her up. Why would she look at me? Then I see people chatting and using language I would not dare. It confuses and annoys me.

    I wish I had small little legs

    that could rock a pair of shorts, but I've got a big bum & thighs. I'm embarrassed of my cellulite and it seems like it won't go away no matter what I do :(
