    Let me start:

    - I don't like to admit that I can't handle a situation or that I am incapable of doing something

    - If someone outdoes something I do which I am passionate about, I will instinctively compete with them. Though of course I would never admit it.

    - I don't like to show that I am uncomfortable because it shows my vulnerability. I shut people out because it keeps me safe. Not many people know what I'm really like.

    - I care a lot about people, sometimes too much. And I try not to show it, for fear that it won't be reciprocated at the same degree.

    - Lastly, if someone greatly upsets me either by word or action I would rather die than show my pain to that person. That satisfaction would never be theirs.

    Now it's your turn! Go go go!

    Even though I'm a meteorologist, I'm terrified of lightning that is close.

    I have to admit I do this in yoga more often than I'm proud of. I know yoga is about checking your ego at the door, but I'm irked when there's a good looking muscular guy in the class who's more flexible and stronger than I am.

    I am a misogynist while walking. Women walk too slow and it infuriates me. And it has nothing to do with how short their legs are, I'm not much taller than the average woman and yet I manage to get from point A to point B without meandering aimlessly like some heifer chewing her cud.

    My other misogynistic trigger is waiting in line behind women for the bus or at the grocery store. They have plenty of time to fish their wallets or bus passes out of their purses before they get to the front of the line, yet invariably waste everyone's time as they rummage through their crap bag and then stand there as they take just as much or more time to put things back in order.

    I'm really shy in situations where I don't know many people. I sometimes have to psych myself up for parties and social situations where I may not know many people. The strange thing is that I usually wind up having a good time.

    Also, I think I'm more emotionally sensitive than most guys. I try to keep this under wraps - especially at work.

    I am always embarrassed when I have to admit to my friends that I tuck my shirt into my underpants. The white waistband is sometimes showing a little at the top of my pants and my friends are quick to point this out to me and ask if I always wear them this way and I usually blush. You would think after tucking into underpants since grade school that I wouldn't be so shy to admit it, but people always lol or call me a dork etc.

    I actually eat mine. Why waste good mucus, crystallized or other, on a table that won't even call you back the next day.

    I have lower self-esteem and I'm poor- but I don't have trouble telling people that.icon_wink.gif

    I have trouble telling people that I am a sexual creature............icon_redface.gif Yeah I'm really embarrassed about that.

    This is me to a tee also. When I'm in my comfort zone (work or friends), I'm loud and obnoxious, but put me in a situation where I know virtually no one, and I freeze up like a bad popsicle.

    Oh, and I lick my plate after I eat . . .wait, we covered that already.

    I don;t think highly of myself, and have a great deal of trouble/fear connecting with people/making friendships.

    Which is weird because people tell me that I'm usually well liked, but that people can pick up on my skittishness, and that most people don't want to deal with breaking through that when there are enough in the world who don't act like that. I think I need some serious psychotherapy

    I can't delete a particular ex's number from my phone because I like having "dead to me" listed as his name.

    Not that he ever calls - (and that's a good thing)

    Tell me something about yourself that you don't easily admit to others.

    That I was a child prodigy, a genius almost beyond measure, one of these "freaks" you sometimes hear about. My own parents told me my intelligence frightened them, and I still remember my mother in tears as she said this to me when I was still in elementary school. And it all came so easily to me that it had no value. When you're a little kid you may be smart, but you lack wisdom and perspective, having no experience behind you, and you have no idea what you are, no ability to know that not everyone is like yourself.

    But it was short-lived, anyway. A series of head injuries, staring at age 12, robbed me of whatever smarts I might have had. Think of the classic "Cousin Clem who got kicked in the head by a mule" and you'll understand.

    So that today I'm dim-witted and struggle to come up with every thought I have. I'm forced to reach deep down into my socks to have a coherent idea, and even then I get it all screwed up much of the time.

    But what choice do I have? You play the cards life deals you. So that's what I don't readily admit to others, that I hold myself in little esteem, a shadow of my former self, what always haunts me, the possibility of what I might have been, and never will be. icon_sad.gif
