    I Don't Like This

    I've only recently found this out about myself. I really don't like overly touchy feely people. It's ok in small amounts but when someone is constantly invading my space by either sitting too close, or touching my hands, or my hair or patting me all the time I get antsy, and if...

    My Middle Names Personal Space... No Joke.

    Okay first things first—I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY HAVE A SITE FOR THIS and I thought I was the ONLY one! Finally, my friends don't understand when I tell them not to touch me and neither do my family, I hate people sitting too close or touching me, my hair, skin contact—whatever...

    Step Away!

    I have never liked people too close to me. My personal space radius is a few feet wider than everyone else. I don't like people to begin with so naturally I like them to be at a distance so I can keep my eyes on them. Everyone yells at me for it and tells me to calm down. Then...

    This Guy Cared Nothing About Me

    One day, life just bullied me. Elements were out of my control. I was depressed, I kept getting bad news. I wanted out. I wanted to die and suicide was on my mind a lot. I felt like I had no significant reason or purpose to be here where your days seem more sad and difficult...

    I Like My Space

    I live in a land where there are a mere 3.4 people per square kilometre.  We have space everywhere.  Times change, and we are becoming less touchy-feely and more protective of the little bubble that surrounds us.  I don't mind getting close with people I know, or getting into...
