Are you toxic? Do people stay away from you?

You do not have to be a bad person. You may be a paragon of virtue and yet people will stay away from you. Do you stay away from people. Why? Have you noticed anyone avoiding you even though you have not hurt them?

I hate to think I'd be a toxic person. That would be awful.

If you have never felt that you are being avoided that is a good thing. Have you avoided others?

@JudyEv There are so many permutations and combinations that result from this scenario and none of those could be due to someone being bad.

I am avoided by some people, but that is their problem. And I avoid some people...that is my problem. No one is a 'paragon of virtue' in my book. Everyone has some type of 'fault' whether they acknowledge it or not.

There are some who do not hurt others per se and yet they are avoided.

@allknowing Everyone has some type of 'fault' whether they acknowledge it or not. Even me. Whether it 'hurts' someone or not.

@JolietJake I know we are not perfect but that fault may not be the reason for someone to stay away from you.

The only toxicity people try to avoid from me is my acid-tongue.

An acid tongue is sure to be kept at bay Do you avoid others too?

@allknowing _No I don't. I like meeting and making new friends. Most of the time I keep my sharp tongue in check unless provoke by another person's venomous or malicious remarks.

@josie_ If I come across who hurt me then I keep them at bay unless association with them is inevitable.

I have always been a person who cares about others. No one has ever kept away from me. I might not be the most pleasant person though when I get really angry but that is a very rare thing to happen.

One does not have to be bad for people not enjoying their company

What about you feeling uncomfortable with others around?

I certainly hope not. So far I've managed to make people feel comfortable in my company and hopefully that will continue.

No, I don't. My students always want to be with me, and my friends like to talk with me. I guess they feel comfortable to talk with me.

No people seem to be attracted to me and I am fine as long as it is not a bunch of people at a time.

Yeah, I think maybe because they don't like me. That is the only way I can think of.

Sometimes when they see they shine less in your presence they avoid you.

Possibly, some people are introvert enough that they dont feel like being with people with their mood. So even good people is at their side, they choose to avoid them, seeing they are not really that socializing type. I am also an introvert, but had practiced to do it in place instead. For someone might misinterpret.

I do not notice if anyone is avoiding me, it is her/his choice. I am, what I am.
