I Wish I Had The Ability To Know How People Feel About Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 167 People

    Would Be Helpful

    Then I'd know whether people actually like me or not and I would end up spending hours worrying about it... and I'd know whether I'm wasting my time talking to certain people still.

    Here's Your Sign

    I seriously wonder sometimes how many friendships with women I've ruined because I thought the innocent flirting was a sincere invitation to explore the romantic possibilities between us. On the other hand, how many times I have I passed up the opportunity to date a woman...
