Unhappy Why am I so sensitive ?

I need help getting over social sensitivity. For example if someone called me name for offended me in some sort of wa I don't know how to react in a funny. Why is that important ? Well it makes everybody feel that your not totally uptight. Sure I have to seriously stick up for myself once in a while, but not always.

Yes, I think it is, Etiquette means you should give it a few hours at least. Good manners cost nothing. There are other people out there who need advice too.

You seem to do that on all your threads- that doesn't make people want to respond... it comes across as annoying and selfish.

There are people on this site with problems a whole lot bigger than wanting to know what semen tastes like, masturbating to cartoons, stalking on facebook and being sensitive about getting teased.

Next time, instead of thinking only about yourself and bumping your thread 30 seconds after posting it- why don't you read other peoples posts and see if you can contribute to someone else in need.

I agree. Focus on somebody other than yourself. I'd suggest volunteer work. Among many possibilities, elementary schools are practically begging for men to read to children, which I find very worthwhile.

Just don't mention the cartoon thing during the background check.

call them a name back, at least it works for me.

i often do it in a calm voice, and with a smile on my face and it sends them wild. more often than not, it's because they aren't expecting it, but i don't care. i don't know them, since they are getting all irate and worked up and uncomfortable.
