^ That's an interesting example. I tend to be ok giving out personal 'factoids' about myself (I mentioned offhand on a first date a while ago that I had some social anxiety issues growing up and that probably it was still a factor even today, to a degree), but I've written elsewhere that I'm not one who tends to want to explore much deeper. I'll throw it out there but am not wanting to delve into my psychae to 'explore' that element, or discuss, really, esp. with people I've just met. So that's probably a difference right there . But, like you, I don't really view some of these factual things as terribly personal.
