Yes. Most of the time. They think I'm eccentric when I'm just passionate. They think I'm rich when I often have hard times. They think all I know is color my nails and sing "it's raining men" when I can run a small business, I can manage the whole household, I'm a good shopper that I can even tell the approximate of how much I'm going to pay before reaching the counter and without using the calculator. They think I'm a biatch when I'm a deep person with wisdom. And then they get to know the real me and fall in love with me. LOL

I remeber when i was in college i used to be well deserve to speak with girls. I am very out spoken with guys but not with girls just because in my place people create more rumours and girls to fall in love with me easily if i start speaking with me. Parallelly i too study well and ranked always on top.So because of my deserveness most of my class girls used to think i have headweight and dont speak with them because i study well, but when day changed they spoke to me and know about my characters,well most of them become good friends as i am not bachelor now

Your words above...wow..It's like looking into a mirror!I used to say that I'm a lovely,smart person..until a friend of mine explained me that if you repeat the same phrase in less than 20 seconds,than you got the 'self-convincing' syndrome LOL ! Oh,and I am also a good and fast shopper(I hate stores...I get in and out in about 4 minutes if I'm lucky and there's a few people at the counter). I'm a little stubborn(ok..a lot),compromises are not on my hobby list,I tend to be a little too frank with people around me...There are only a bunch of people who can keep up with me and understand me,the rest of them ..well,they hate me,although I do have a lot of qualities..really..I do...I really really really do!D@mn...20 seconds rule!*looking worried around*

Hi Tammuz! It's good to know that where almost twins. I believe you that you have good qualities. I walk into a room and everything comes to life. I'm the life of the party but most people that I don't like doesn't seem to like me as well. I don't like mediocre and passive people I don't think we'll have something to share. If I am a match they're the wet firewoods. I'm a little stubborn, too and I trust my judgement over things. I only consult God with my decisions and ask friends for their opinions. I have keep a number of friends and they're for life. They know me inside out. I can say that they always have fun in my company. I'm the one on one type of person, how I deal with one is different from the other. I guess I am a camillion. I am very choosy when it comes to friends because I keep them for life. I love them. I love my bestfriend more than family. We live together during hard times and helped each other. Our friendship has been tested through time. I'm very protective when it comes to my friends. I'll buy an argument in their name. If my it is my friends fault, I try to fix the sitch if I can and if I am welcome to do so but never say a bad thing about them. They are human beings like all of us. They commit mistakes, major mistakes but it doesn't mean that is who they are. I know them for a fact and my love and views about them will never change. You know Tammuz, I live in the Philippines but in the city where I am in right now for 3 years, I haven't found a cebuano/filipino friend that I will keep for life. I have alot in manila since I worked and lived there most of my life. The closest friend I have right now is a Swedish National who considers me his bestfriend. He only comes here every 6mos. He will be arriving on the 25 of oct and so I am very excited because of the life philosopy talk that we're going to spend more coffee time with. LOL, sorry my respond is too long. I wish to share more but hey thanks for listening. hehehe. Wish you the best, I guess am just glad that we're twins. If we live in the same city we might even be good friends. Don't worry most of the people I get along with, are STUBBORN people on a quick note, that is in a good way.

Yeah,tell me about it! I'm also very choosy when it comes to friends.A lot of people consider me their fried,but from my point of view,they're only acquaintances.I let only a few to get close to me.And those few know me better than I know myself sometimes lol.I also hate mediocrity(I even have an avatar that says "note to self:it's illegal to stab people for being stupid :)) ).So..I have 3 friends who mean the world to me.I know them for 15 years,and they never let me down.They were always there to share either my laughter or my tears.And there's nothing in this world that happens to them without me knowing it.It almost sounds like a little KGB system between us lol. I know how it is to move from home and be in a foreign place.I did that too.I missed my friends more than family!I made new friends there,but it is not the same.When I returned home..well...I can't describe you the feeling I had when we got together again. I think people tend to hate me because of my twisted (somewhat British )sense of humor.If they're not smart enough to know that I am joking,then they don't worth my time. So,hang on there,girl!There are enough smart people around you,and they will find you without you looking for them.You suffer from the same thing as I do:you're a magnet for people like you.Unfortunately magnets have the tendency of gathering junk also.Lucky for us,that junk is small and very disposable!*wink*

Hi tammuz! How come I like you already? Are we friends yet? I'll go check and add you. I'm little spoiled with my friends, they just love me too much and i feel the same way. My swedish friend, Robert is arriving on the 25th. He is now currently on the plane, too many connecting flights i guess. He got me marabu chocolate bars and a pink crocs sandals and my son got one too. More than that I am very excited to see him because of our conversations. And my bestfriend Penny works in a cruise ship as a bartender, everytime she comes home, I go fetch her from the airport and the first thing we do is spend time together. We were room mates in 2003. I know everything about her too. Last year, she came lived with me for 3 months before she left for work. The best thing she does for me is serve me food that i love to eat, we washed clothes together. (Now, I'm near tears. I miss her.) Whenever she comes home, she always has something for me like bags and victoria secrets and a bag full of chocolates. I am a giver myself. I believe that you can give without loving but you cannot love without giving. I worked for Robert as a tour guide before when he was new in my country. I did not let him pay for my services because we became really good friends and I don't think he needed a tour guide, he needed a friend. I couldn't let him pay for that. Penny was there when my ex husband left me and my kids on the street. Since then, I've always been there for her as life continues to unfold. Thank you tammuz, Sheena

Yes, I am very misunderstood by this all of the time. If people would get to know the real me, they will see that I am as gentle as the breeze that awakens them..

Yup yup, sheena. I am very aware that people have a wrong impression of me. You see, I am a shy person but i'm afraid to those who do not know me, I come out as--well, strict. And maybe snobbish? There are some who think I am rich also, hahaha, that I have an unlimited supply of money, when in fact, I just know how to manage the little (as in little) money i have! There are also those who think that I have other people do house chores for me, when in fact, I can hardly go out on a weekend because of all the cleaning and laundry washing I have to do. I find all these misconceptions funny, though. I have a handful of friends that know the real me :-)
