Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

I'm 100% me but in person I'm much more likely to say the wrong word or stumble over my sentences because I don't have spell check embedded in my head and I don't have the luxury of sitting at a computer and editing. Also I have no control over how others perceive me, and that runs from love to white hot hate.

Someone just complimented me by using something from my profile, I thought they might have misunderstood what my meaning was but I was the one misunderstanding them. LOL It happens all the time, even in person, that we don't get the gist of what a person is saying or what their actions really mean. I'm glad I was helpful to her but I was worried that she thought I had been flip in my comments, which I had not meant to be.

In person I am a nice person for the most part, so people tend to latch onto me. I don't like that, I don't need more friends as so many seem to like to have, I like being alone and while I may talk to you for hours once in a while, mostly I just like to go home and be left alone. I'm not cold at all, I'm just not lonely and don't much like contact outside my family...and many in my family don't get me liking to be alone either. I'd give them the shirt off my back but that doesn't mean I want accolades nor company particularly. On the other hand I absolutely love being around my granddaughter much more often than not.

In real life i'm much worse.
LOL! I think my profile is pretty darned accurate. I state up front that I AM the "dating world's WORST nightmare"...having already stated that I'm the worst....LOL! I don't know how to be any more honest than that!
