    Thanks guys. "Laid back" is in the same category as another favorite, "closure". WTF does that mean and does anybody really experience it?

    Matterych saidI honestly have no idea, because at least %50 (and that's a conservative estimate) of the guys I know that are "laid back" are actually high maintenance.


    I can be high maintenance but i'm not drama, I am self-sufficient, I'm nice and generally out going to people and humourous at the most of times.

    I think it's just that I feel like shit if I haven't been tanning in a while or that I can't find something to wear out to a club even thou I went shopping that day might make me not so laid back..

    I never really considered myself laid back until almost everyone I knew used it to describe me which lead to some introspection on my part...

    I guess I'm laid back because I don't rush into things, despite the nagging pressure from the people around me. For most people, time is key so they characterize my non-impulsive attitude as being laid back.

    I do live next to the ocean and grew my hair long enough I started looking like a surfer/band member~ that might have contributed to it to some extent.

    " The term laid back is often used to describe a person who has a mild and easy-going personality. It can also be used to describe a place or situation (i.e. a laid-back atmosphere) that is quiet, relaxed or casual. .."

    I think I'll quote a sentiment I have always admired:

    If--

    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too:
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
    Or being hated don't give way to hating,
    And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

    If you can dream---and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think---and not make thoughts your aim,
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same.
    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
    And never breathe a word about your loss:
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with Kings---nor lose the common touch,
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much:
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And---which is more---you'll be a Man, my son!

    Rudyard Kipling

    I think that if you can approach being a real man, you can say you are pretty 'Laid Back" as well.

    One of my favorite poems(and writers).

    id describe myself as laidback for a few reasons: i dont get overly emotional about many things / i think ahead a lot, not to set a course, but just to see whats worth my attention and whats not / if people around are getting on my nerves, i just remember that they may not have developed fully yet and one day, god willing, theyll get there! / im not against doing things on my own, usually things get done more efficiently that way / when others are with me as i go about my day, im sure to keep their ideals and ideas in mind / and finally, when a situation like what happened today occurs (bus drove past me on the sidewalk and splashed/soaked me in snow and slush, and as i attempted to jump away from it, i slipped on ice and fell ... ) i let out an initial F%$K ... and then smile and think, well, at least it didnt run me over icon_neutral.gif

    we try to say that we are laid back. With a two and four year old we really aren't. We are go go go all the time.

    Laid back? It is good to hear what that means to people. Something we dream of doing some day, but would change anything now though.

    To me, *laid back* is as useless a description as its cousin *Loves long walks along the beach at sunset, and sunny blue skies*

    I picture a *laid back* guy drinking canned beer with a spare tire around his mid-section - while watching Nascar.
