Do you think if you met yourself you'd hate you?

Asked by AshLeigh (13519 points ) August 6th, 2011

I was just thinking, and I realized if I met myself I probably wouldn’t like myself very much.
What could you change, to make it where you wouldn’t hate yourself?

I wouldn’t hate myself at all. I’d relate to myself.
I probably shouldn’t be too reserved though..

mazingerz88's avatar

Oh yeahh. I’ll tell myself to stop gawking at boobs!

sophiesword's avatar

no not really but I’m sure my friends would seriously I don’t even know how we are friends, they are everything I’m not but still I think I would really like me !!
I love people with a sense of humor and that’s why I think I would like me

I’m sure I’d like myself a lot, but I’d also tell myself to stop worrying about random shit so much and get on with life.

wundayatta's avatar

Depends when I met me. Sometimes I would hate myself and sometimes not. But that’s already the case.

Zaku's avatar

No, but I might find myself a bit difficult to approach. ;-)

rebbel's avatar

I love me.

Blackberry's avatar

No, but I would think I was too happy and optimistic, or at least acting like it.

Sunny2's avatar

I try to be the person I would like to be and with years of prodding here and there, I’m almost there. I still have a few things to do better, but mostly they don’t affect anyone but me and the person I live with, like procrastinating about doing household chores. I think I’d like myself.

blueberry_kid's avatar

I just think I’d be a little obnoixious. I’m very loud and have the tendency to hug, and talk a lot, and bring up random things, and I shower too much, and sweat, and…maybe I should stop there.

I don’t know, I might like myself. I think I’m pretty cool. I’m just really loud. So, self! This chick is annoying! Be prepared to face her!

Dutchess_III's avatar

I’d be best friends with myself! I think

stardust's avatar

I think I’d find myself interesting, yet hard to reach. I’m very private so I think I’d either find that intriguing or boring.

woodcutter's avatar

Since the other me would have the same skill sets, I would team up and we would kick some serious ass on my jobs. Two people doing perfect work together? Sheeeeeeit! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRJ99wuV1ng

I’d tell myself to go fuck yourself.

and then spend the rest of my days wondering what I meant by that

jonsblond's avatar

Not at all. I’d finally have someone to go hiking with.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I’d be SO glad to meet another woman who wants to play tennis and talk about science things!

Neizvestnaya's avatar

No way, I’d find a great friend to do all kinds of stuff with and who has good people around her.

Cruiser's avatar

It would be lust at first sight….big hug, grab some ass and hot french kiss! I love me!!

CaptainHarley's avatar

No, although I would certainly be very cautious! Heh!

janbb's avatar

No – finally, no!

Neizvestnaya's avatar

Kind of like @Cruiser, I think I’m pretty easy on the eyes :) I like me.

tom_g's avatar

If I met the “me” from any other point in my life, I would probably punch me in the throat. Right now, I’m pretty comfortable with saying I’d give the current me a big old hug.

Cruiser's avatar

@Neizvestnaya We could double date!

Neizvestnaya's avatar

@Cruiser: Double dating is a favorite. My guy and I love to hang out with our friends.

lemming's avatar

I’d probably end up fighting with myself. Not physically…well, maybe…

Mariah's avatar

I have this awful habit of disliking people that I view as “competition.” What we’re competing for, I have no clue. But when someone’s good at the same things I’m good at, I get a bit jealous. It’s hilarious to imagine being jealous of myself, but I think I would be and I wouldn’t like her much!

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

I would like me:)

snowberry's avatar

I’m completely comfortable in my own skin, and if I met myself, I’d like her too.

tranquilsea's avatar

I like me. It took me a while to get here but here I am.

jrpowell's avatar

I’m the funniest person I know.

Brian1946's avatar

I live in a small house, so I’d tell me to get my own place, but there wouldn’t be any hard feelings, unless me started making moves on my wife.

MacBatman31's avatar

When I talk to myself, I don’t hate myself. Does that count?

Seriously if I met myself, I don’t think we would hate each other, but being best friends wouldn’t happen either. The stubborness would definately get in the way, and our tolerance would also probably wear thin at certain points in time. We would be able to have a beer once in a while, and shoot the shit together, but too much time together, we’d be at each other’s throats.

mangeons's avatar

I don’t think so, I like to think I’m a pretty hilarious person!

AmWiser's avatar

No! I’ve been waiting to meet someone like me forever. I really do love me some me, and if I met myself I would be elated.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I’d probably annoy the hell out of myself by finishing my sentences and thoughts all the time.

JustJessica's avatar

I’m pretty sure if I met myself I’d want to get naked with me and have my way with…me! Oh wait I do that already. Sorry if I didn’t answer your question.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Do you stand in front of the mirror staring at your boobs @JustJessica?! LOL!

JustJessica's avatar

@Dutchess_III HOW DID YOU KNOW?!?!? I mean I love breasts and I have them so heck yea I do, I pretty much stare at everyone else’s too though.

ddude1116's avatar

I’d enjoy it. Hell, I’ve been wanting to clone myself for years.

woodcutter's avatar

I just asked my wife if she would think having 2 me’s would be useful. No it would not be useful according to her. Well, I would like it. I’d be fun.

rooeytoo's avatar

I love this question!!! GA

I think I would like myself the way I am now. I am a pretty interesting old broad!

@Dutchess_III – shame we don’t live closer together. I haven’t had any really good tennis since I left the USA. I thought I was moving to the tennis mecca down under but it appears no one here plays singles after they get out of high school. And they don’t play real tennis, the comps (competitions) are run like this, you play 2 sets with another member of your team. You don’t change ends on odd sets, you only change at the end of the set. Sometimes you don’t even rotate serves, the same person serves twice, very strange. Then you have a cup of tea. Then you play another 2 sets with a new partner against 2 new people, tea again, toilet breaks, gossip, etc. Then 2 more sets with yet another new partner. Drives me crazy!!! Takes forever, I like to go play hard tennis for best out of 3 or 5 sets, preferably singles but if doubles, with the same partner! Then eat and go home. I miss real tennis!

linguaphile's avatar

I would be thrilled to meet me! The company would be awesome—someone else who doesn’t say slow down… I’d have a partner in crime! Imagine, two of me going 100mph! But… once in a while I’d have to whack myself in the head sometimes and say chill, girl, just relax…

Symbeline's avatar

Erm I denno. I probably would hate myself. But if all went well, we’d just watch a buncha zombie movies and get drunk.

Bellatrix's avatar

Good grief Rooey, you should work where I do. I know so many tennis players. I don’t play. I am crap at tennis.

I would like me. I might clash with me on occasions but I am a lot of fun to be around.

rooeytoo's avatar

@Bellatrix – there are always plenty of players, it is just that it is more of a social event than a serious tennis competition. But when we come back to Rainbow, I will get you to introduce me!

Bellatrix's avatar

Fair enough! :-)

MilkyWay's avatar

@Symbeline Can me and my twin join you?

Symbeline's avatar

@MilkyWay Hell yeah, I’m pretty sure the bed is big enough for all four of us. :D

MilkyWay's avatar

I’m We’re there :D

Dutchess_III's avatar

@rooeytoo I hear you. I’d play volley ball on church leagues by request sometimes and they’re so…bad. I don’t know how else to put it! No clue about the game at all. I’d still play my best, which is all out. If I screwed up a serve or something I’d shake my head in disgust at myself. Because of that someone on the church league would always say “Why are you taking this so seriously? It’s just a game! It’s supposed to be fun!” They did not understand that the harder I played, the harder I pushed myself, the more FUN I WAS HAVING!!!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Hmmm…can we have more than one of ourselves? Can I have 6 of me so we can have our own volleyball team?

rooeytoo's avatar

@Dutchess_III – I know exactly what you mean and heaven forbid you should cuss a little when you do something stupid, heheheh. I think they always want to wash my mouth out with soap!

Dutchess_III's avatar

I know! You really can’t play ball without a few “damns,” “hells” and “shits” here and there! Just not possible!

gr8teful's avatar

Yes if I met myself I would hate myself but also out of mercy if myself begged me to help me end my life I would

zombie emo thread

AshLeigh's avatar

@Neizvestnaya stereotypes not appreciated.

Shippy's avatar

yes, I’d hate me

wundayatta's avatar

@Shippy What would you change so you would like you?

Shippy's avatar

@wundayatta I’d hate to be around the highly strung, neurotic, self centred person I am. Who says no to everything. The person who is so fearful of life that she gave up living it.

wundayatta's avatar

@Shippy That does sound like a challenge. Are you up for it?

Shiny_Leather's avatar

It sounds terrible! You couldn’t discuss things because you would have seen and done all the same things and have all the same opinions! It would also probably change how I acted since I would be on the receiving end of all my nattering and bad habits

NostalgicChills's avatar

This is going to sound SO conceited and big-headed (I’m not like that at all I promise) but if I met myself, I would be so happy. I personally think I’m hilarious and not a lot of people have my sense of humor, so I would get along great with myself.
That probably sounds so bad to everyone here lol
