Drama. People who create drama. For example, the last guy I was with, I came home from work on a Friday, headache, beat, sick. I went to bed. Next thing I knew, he was yelling at me to get up and go with him to his daughter's house for dinner. He blew this issue that I did not feel well enough to go to his daughter's house into i better go with him or pack my s#*t and be gone when he came home. Okay. I left that night. And never looked back.

Clearly, the guy is a head case. LOL How fortunate you are to have dodged that bullet. Even if that was just the final straw, still...how fortunate you are to be free of such a controlling person!

The Removal of NPD has had it criticism from the professionals in that field.

I think a lot of people are self-centered, but I think NPD goes beyond that line.

We all have our things. I have mine. Any way, I called my dad about 20 minutes into it when I was on my way to the CVS for supplies. When I get back my darling is still going at it. I told him to cut the crap and chill out. My dad did not like that and told me to, no demanded, that I do my wifely duties lol. I did of course, tho, my dh says I suck as a nurse. Clearly, if he were shooting blood all over the place, or lost the finger, he'd be at the emergency room.

I'm sure I sound heartless, but panic does something to my brain. I don't like it. It's not my way.

So, how about you?
People are different, get over it.

Well, many people who engage in anti-social behavior (Read: actual anti-social behavior, not asocial or shyness, introversion, etc) are narcissistic but narcissists are not necessarily sociopaths.

The one thing with that is I notice girls tend to keep picking those same guys over and over, then wonder why they can't find a good man. It's not too hard for those traits to show up early enough in the relationship.

With females, I don't deal with drama, passive-aggressiveness, and people who get worked up over trivial stuff in the grand scheme of things.

Stupidity and attitude are the two quickest ways to incur my wrath.

Got to admit I haven't read through every post so this may have already been said:

I can not stand ppl who are racist - I am also very irritated by ppl who claim they are "not racist" but "don't want (insert nationality) living next door" - I cannot stand ppl who make comments about other races in front of me because they are too ignorant to think I or someone else may not share their opinion. People who don't know me well enough to know my family is interracial and they have just insulted me again and again - just because I am white-does not mean my entire family is....

So basically I cannot stand racists!!!
