Just a couple of things occurred to me, although I am sure there are a lot more.

Most people don’t know my mother died when I was a child, and that at 23, I’ve been living without a mother for the last 12 years. I tend not to tell new people, even if mothers are brought up in the conversation, not because I’m uncomfortable with it, but because I think it makes other people uncomfortable. You’d be amazed at the amount of times I’ve nodded along when people have talked about “parents” (plural) or said something about my mum. It comes up a lot, and I don’t like to correct people or make an issue of it.

Also, most people I meet now don’t know I used to be fat.

My physical apperance does not match up to the rest of me! People see me and judge me instantly – it makes me uncomfortable – and angry.
I can be shy, i dont watch tv, only devour books, i work in IT only for the money, im artistic and creative but completly tone deaf, i havent had a boyfriend in 5 years cause im scared of commitment and intimacy, i have a second job in a video store, i can fly planes, but dont have my license just yet, wont wear high heels because i tower above everyone, got expelled from 2 schools, am functional product of a dysfunctional marriage, i havent spoken to or seen my father in a few years but he works in the building next to me… Oh and last but not least – i pretend to be modest, but the forementioned seems to prove that false!

-I attempt to appear at your intelligence level if I am smarter than you, because I would rather appear dumb than a know-it-all.
-I’m diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder, but it doesn’t negatively influence my life.
-If you mention a time that you’ve been cruel to an animal or made fun of a less-fortunate person, I have zero respect for you.
-I am not afraid of confrontation whatsoever, and will take up for myself, my friends, and that guy that I’ve never seen before across the room in a heartbeat if you are disrespectful.
-I am guessing what kind of person you really are in my head, because I believe nobody really presents their true self when meeting someone new, but rather the person they wish people thought they were.
-I am socially awkward in the sense that many times I come across bitchy, bossy, or controlling and I really am not trying to be. I have a hard time saying things in a nice way, even when I mean them nicely.

@BBSDTfamily in some ways you and I are a lot alike

Krag's avatar

The list is long because people who know me don’t really know me.No I’m not on the run. I just keep most of me to myself.My ex of 20 years never knew me because she only cared about her.Women I’ve dated tell me I’m hard to figure out.There has only been one women that knows more about me then anyone and she was the love of my life for most of our lives. So as you can see while I have let out a few things about me you still know little.
