Do you really care about what other people think of you? The way you dress, talk, do your hair,and how smart you really are? I know alot of people who say they don't give a fuck and yet get mad if someone says something about them. I guess i do care what others think of me.I would never go out in public without my hair done and my make up on. I'll be honest, i hate when someone hates me. I try to be perfect so everyone will like me. So, what about you guys?

its true!

of course, as for me, i can be a total slob. i usually stop shaving around thursday in anticipation of the weekend and will, on occassion, wear the same pair of pants all week (of course they usually don't get too dirty). this is why i love hiking in the wilderness - not fashion expectations.

this, of course, might explain my nonexistent lovelife . . . oh well!

i care enought to respect the peace of others .. re noise - swearing .. etc.
i dont care about grooming other than being clean and presentable.
i have to be clean, my clothes have to be clean.
i might not shave or wear anything but jeans, sneakers, and a tshirt though.

if i go to a wedding or other formal event i dress appropriately out of respect.

i dont go out of my way to hurt people so i might be bothered for 2 seconds if someone doesnt like me the way i am - but thats it - if they dont - and there's no good reason for it - fuck them.
if i did something i wasnt aware of - or was misunderstood and that was the cause of the rift then i'll do what i can to set the record straight ..i care enough for that.

unlike some others i've dealt with - i dont want to steamroll through life not caring about the people around me .. i care enough to be a good citizen ... if someone doesnt like the way i look, or laugh, or the pitch of my voice - oh well, i'll live. they're probably as stupid as dirt anyway :p

I try to be perfect so everyone will like me. So, what about you guys?Hmm...My answer?...Well...Here's a good example...The most recent occasion that someone tried to insult me:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v69/BloodRayne/HDC.jpg
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And that's really a pretty normal response from me...Someone asks a question...Just answer it honestly, to the best of your ability...Unless you don't feel like it, you always have that option, too...No biggee...Why freak out?

And...That's how I am...

You can only be insulted, if you allow yourself to be insulted...

If someone has an opinion about me...That's their opinion, they're entitled to that...

If someone says something about me that isn't true...Well, why should I care? It isn't true...

If someone says something about me that IS true, and it's bad (in MY opinion), I have to decide whether I give a shit enough about it to change it...I usually don't...

I know me better than ANYONE else does...So, why should I give a shit about what someone who doesn't really know me, thinks about me?...Opinions based on misinformation, lack of information, or false assumptions are irrelevant...

Besides...Those who matter, don't mind...and those who mind, don't matter ~Dr. Seuss


I really only get defensive when someone attacks someone that I care about...And even then I don't get ridiculous...I just lay out the facts, and set the record straight...It's that simple...

I honestly don't understand why people get so angry, enraged and bent outta shape...Or even depressed just because of what someone else says or thinks...It just seems like such a huge waste of time, energy and emotion, and it's wasted on someone who doesn't deserve it, and who you owe nothing to...Why allow someone to get to you?...Why give them what they want?


Verbal fighting matches bore me anyway...I lose interest quickly...Then they're just left yelling at themselves...Which is actually kinda funny to watch...


As for fixing your hair and considering what you'd wear in public...You should do that based on what YOU think and what YOU like, no one else...Sure, I brush my hair and put clothes on when I leave the house...But, not because I'm afraid of what someone ELSE might think if I didn't...Only because I wouldn't like it if I didn't...Does that make sense?

i care enough to be a good citizen Well...Okay...That's different...I agree with these things...But, that's because I expect people to afford ME that same courtesy...I never ask for more than I'm willing to give...and I always give what I expect to get back in return...But, again...this has more to do with what I think I should do...rather than what anyone else thinks...It's just the correct way to behave, in my opinion, ya know?

I don't bother anyone...I don't wish to BE bothered...

Life is to short to care about what anyone else thinks of you.

People waste too much time trying to be something that society tells them they should be instead of being who they really are.

I shower when "I" think I stink.

I will cut my hair when I step on it.

I will shave when I get tired of scratching my face.

I wear what I feel comfortable in, regardless of the situation. To me black jeans at a wedding are acceptable.

I make no excuses for my foul language.

If you didnt want to hear my opinion then dont ask.

I dont lie.

Ask my wife. "Do you promise to love me forever?"

my answer- "No."

Never make promises, that way no one can call you a liar.

And honestly Pink who cares if someone hates you? Most dont even know what the definition of the word "hate" really means. And have they really bothered to know you or is it just a general judgement call on their part?

If someone says they hate you for whatever reason its their problem that they would bother for doing so in the first place.

Do I care?

Depends on what's been said and by whom.

I try not to judge people on there appearance and am usually quite tolerant/patient and willing to listen.

Respect, Friendship and Trust are not given they are earned, Ive learned that lesson before and now it's not any different.

My family would always come first, then friends a close second, anyone else can take a very long walk of a very short pier.

If that's caring then sue me.

Who cares what other people think? You know what you are, so screw what anybody else thinks. I hate when people label other people, its all a bunch of bs.

Someone once told me that it was insulting to the people who do love and care about you to focus your attentions on the people who are mean and/or don't care about you.

I've sort of been able to take that lesson to heart over the past year. If someone in my family is being a jackass, it hurts like hell, but I try to get beyond it. However, if it's someone I don't know very well or at all, or if it's someone I don't really like or give two shits about, then I could give a fuck what they think.

As a matter of fact, Rayne and I were talking once, and she was saying how she didn't understand all the fighting on the forums because it's just that, an internet forum. I've also tried to keep that into perspective, alas, I am human and rather opinionated to a fault.

By the way, Rayne, as to your first response: Werd!:D

I care about other people, it's my nature, but can give a rat's ass what people say about me! Especially on message boards. I think it's all fun.

I have this nasty habit of caring (I'm told it's cuz I'm a cancer) but I'm overcoming it, I don't care nearly as much or as often. For a while I had a strict code of apathy, so maybe that helped a little.
