hi friends.may be people who dont spend too much time looking at their faces might have experienced this. i went to get a drink from a shop ,probably the only customer at that time. i casually turned to my right and nearly choked.a guy was looking at me.on closer inspection,i found that the wall had a ful length mirror and that person was me. sound crazy but thats how it happened. i probably wont recognise if i meet my own clone.lol has this ever happened to you?

In the town i live is a big shop with an entrance on two different streets if you want to get from one street to the other it is much quicker to cut through the shop.The shop is actually divided into two shops but you can freely go from one shop to the other and to use the shop as a shortcut you must go through both shops.The shops are only separated by a few pillars with detectors to stop people taking things in between them.these pillars have ceiling to floor mirrors on them,i saw what i thoght was my reflection on one of the pillars but it wasnt me but someone in very similar clothes walking in the other direction.

Yes, it has happened to me and I always think, why did they put a mirror there? Then who is that fat guy on the TV? Oh, it's me! Security tools I suppose!

What I feel is that you were not prepared for anything like that and when that happened for a moment you did not think it was you but someone else not because you did not recognise yourself but you did not expect a mirror there and so you thought it was someone else. Sounds logical!?

It will happen like this for girls and that too young girls like you. girls must be careful and see that they do not go alone unless warranted and also not take cool drinks offered by others.. You know about it. take care.

Funny thing, i never experienced that kind of situation for i am realty conscious about how i look. i always look at the mirror and re touch, such vanity thing. And how i wish I could experience that, how it feel like I'm really conscious about it. :)

hi stardustcdsd, i don't spend too much looking at myself in the mirror but i think i could recognize myself in the mirror even if i may have a drink or two. haha..but that could be a shocking experience for you and it will be for me too, if ever i am not aware that there is a mirror infront of me and it is dark around me. yikes...scary! take care... faith210
