    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 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...

    I have never liked when people put their hands

    on me even though they mean it in a friendly way. I always hated that invasion feeling. I even had teacher woman hug me without asking before trying to make me feel better or something. It wasn't anything weird, but for me i have a quick back up reflex. Heck, what ever happened...

    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...

    It's the final frontier!

    Crowds. At the métro, you risk someone grabbing your ***! Soccer games. Elbows. Hands on your breasts. Smiling apologies! It really is a frontier that many have boldly gone beyond!

    Damn Straight

    I have issues with touching. There are very few people that I allow to be 5 feet or closer. And I ******* hate it when outside family that I haven't met, but they know about me (because the mammas talk about everything) and still they touch me! Then there are just other people...

    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...
