don't know... I still love it

I don't care about the label as much as the reason behind this weird situation. I have experienced it so many times. I can walk into a room full of people at an event, dance, party, or whatever and I know that I am not the focus of the room but I dream that I look very good and that I am wonderful. After greeting a few and having some personal verbal exchanges, I get the picture that there are several very good looking and wondeful people in the space. Usually, I size up a few that seem better than me in some way. <br />
<br />
I'll catch myself thinking that I hate doing thisand that it iscounterproductive to going out to have a good time. <br />
<br />
Why does anyone do this?<br />
<br />
Have any insights or experiences that may be better than the usual "therapy?"

I've read about this sort of thing before, only I can't remember where from! Darn it. There is an explanation for it though, or at least one that sounded like it made sense, I just can't remember what it is :P Sorry! Maybe it's to do with a need for approval, but a fear of not getting it when you ask for it?

WOW! Talk about split personality! Or is it bipolar? lol
