I guess I just haveone of those personalities, or faces, or whatever it is. But I am one of those people who people seek out to tell them their life story. I have had this happen quite frequently in my life, and even with complete strangers. I am not sure what it is. Mayeb it i because I always try to see both sides to whatever is actually happenin to make sure I understand everything. And maybe these people cans ense this or see it on my face. I am not complaining about it really because I know everyone needs someone to hear them and their story. ANd now days it especially is important to find a reliable source that will not disclose and gossip about your life. Which also may be another reason wy people come to me. Maybe I shoudl have been a shrink. Because a lot of times I never offer advice I jus listen....or tell them a bit about something that happened to me so they can understand that things do work out. So are the type of person people will just walk up and tell you their life story? Do you feel sometimes you wish you had someone like this to vent to and no it goes no further? I guess I can also look at it as a blessing because it helps me develop characters for my story....specific details.

I have noticed that a lot of people trust me with their secrets and they enjoy telling me the latest happenings in their life. Of course, I hate hearing long stories just like the rest of existence. I hate it when I'm in the mall or a public, social area and people walk up to me and say stuff like "Hey, I like your shoes. My brother has the same pair. You know, his broke last week and he used duct tape trying to put it back together for hours....." I just can't take it. I totally get what you mean when it comes to venting to people though. I wish I had people around me that cared what I was getting into and doing. I have people that are there for me but they are extremely busy with their life. My best friend is in college. He sees me about twice a week for mixed martial arts training and I feel like I am causing him stress by talking about anything that's not mixed martial arts on those days that we hang out. It's all good though, I am a strong person and I keep on trucking every single day! But your totally right. People walking up to you, asking you for your opinion, confiding in you and everything they do for you is a real blessing. I love all of my friends and heck, I love all of the people that give me attention. I am a good listen. Everybody should learn to be a good listener and not an advice giver. People don't tell you what's going on in their life because they think your Dr. Phil. They confide in you because your you. It's a true blessing man. God bless and take care!

Yes, this happens to me quite a bit because I have a very open, friendly personality and people say I'm easy to talk to. I'm also a good person to confide in. I like to say that I know where all of the bodies are buried but no one knows that I know. Sometimes it's annoying when someone I just met bends my ear for an hour or so, telling me their life story, but what can you do? You can't tell them to get lost so you listen.

My wife and her mother are like that, people tell them all sorts of things, personal things, its kinda strange because I would never tell people everything. I guess its a gift that can listen and not judge and I think that's what a lot of people are looking for. If you can use it without damaging anybody I think its okay to do.

It has often happened to me that people have confided in me and have told me about their lives and their problems, even total strangers have done that. Sometimes I get very surpriced and I wonder why they are telling me so much about themselves, when they don't even know me, but I like listening to them and I always try to help if I can. I don't know what it is about me that makes people confide in me, but I guess there is something about me that makes them feel at ease.

Actually, I am the type that people reveal things to. I guess I look aproachable and friendly. Many times in maybe a supermarket line, I will start a conversation with someone as we wait, and they will tell me something about themselves. I like interacting with people and I guess it shows in my persona.
