    That wasn't a fish for compliments but I felt like being all human and deep for .3 seconds there.

    But it was nice to read. Thank you! :blush:

    Due to the fact that people talk smack about other people privately, but are so sweet and nice with them on here, I wonder how many people are talking *kitten* behind my back and smiling to my face here.

    That's on my mind.

    I’ve never talked about/been talked to about anyone else here privately and tend to feel like I’m too insignificant here for anyone to be interested in talking about me, but now I’m wondering if I’m wrong about that, especially because as Noah said:

    That's on my mind.

    I've wondered what's said about me too

    I am not a worrying person, I worry about very little, but I am always concerned that I am just a constant annoyance to the people I talk with

    But much of my youth was spent being told how annoying I was so

    That’s me. It seriously sucked growing up and I still deal with huge amounts of social anxiety over it. Still, if I’ve annoyed someone, I’d much rather be told so I can do what I need to do to fix it even if it stings than to be unaware and keep making the same mistakes.

    Exactly this

    Whoa whoa whoa. Just because someone else finds you annoying doesn’t mean your behavior is a mistake.

    I used to worry about this. A lot. But I learned that people can sense when you’re trying to ingratiate yourself with them and they’ll subconsciously despise you for it.

    So you do what YOU want. Make yourself happy. Be your brand of funny. Some people will find it endearing. Others are eternal grumps whose favor doesn’t matter anyway. :wink:

    That would make you and Noah an anomaly here. It's what makes cliques......people tend to look for affirmation not information.

    I think it depends on what it is that I’ve done that annoys someone. If it’s just my personality or my sense of humor that’s irritating to them, perhaps we’re not meant to be friends. If it’s an easily changed behavior, though, I want to know.

    For example, I have an IRL friend who used to drive me absolutely insane because she would send me every cute animal or baby picture or soccer video she found on Instagram to the tune of 50-60 messages a day, even on days when she knew I had to sleep because I was working that night or had worked the day before. I felt like a total *kitten* when I finally got the guts to tell her how annoying it was to me, but our friendship improved when I did. She’s cut it down to sending me 5-10 of those things a day (still more than I want, tbh, but at least it’s not overwhelming) - enough that she still feels like she’s getting to share things that she liked with me but few enough that I can look forward to seeing her and talking to her rather than feeling irritated and wanting to avoid her because she’s been in my face 24/7 messaging me crap that doesn’t even stimulate any sort of conversation.

    Go upstairs and nail your neighbor to assert dominance.

    Maybe buy a fan or play soft music to drown out noises.
