Most of the time when I become friends with someone they tell me they thought I was stuck up when they first met me. I tend to be on the shy and quiet side at first but once you get to know me I don't shut up so easily. Also, if I'm deep in thought I don't see or hear anyone, so I'm sure that doesn't help. So how do people think of you when they first meet you?

I really don't know, but it is interesting to think about. I hope I'm not projecting some bad vibe that's not really true about me.

Most ppl either love and think Im so funny or hate me and think I am a ******. But its really just that I am not the type to adopt ppl so easliy...... like a friend of a friend that I just met is not my friend its theirs. And until I am ready to build a relationship with them they wont be. I am the same with family my uncles new wife is not my aunt she is my uncles new wife. LOL Aunt is reserved for those who have been around through my childhood not the new hot thing.

I still get that sometimes, not as often anymore. I'm one of those people who doesn't look too friendly when I'm in deep thought or not smiling.

I use to be a nervous wreck and people would just not like me. Now I'm just me. And it's one of those things, people either like me or don't.

"Damn that b*tch is tall!"


Most assume I'm athletic and I think people view me as nice, as I'm usually very polite and smiling (little do they know ).

I think the impressions are split between extremes with me. People either find me really intimidating or pretty much harmless. Really friendly or really antisocial.

However, everyone thinks I'm eccentric.

When a woman is tall, pretty and athletic, I just say "Wow!"
