    It's not fronting. Sometimes being you (not you you) can be like throwing cold water in someones face. I prefer frogs in boiling water.

    If you're just out there, you give people no period of adjustment. And there are often people would will like you just fine if you just give them time to warm up to you. But there are also people who will like you if you tell them you like anal plugs as well within the first three hours of knowing them. Perform an audience analysis.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    As far as presenting a front goes. I think a likeable persons personality is broad. So they put their best foot forward. That is why likeable people tend to have broad interests to draw from. Their thinking is open as opposed to closed.

    That's a nice way to think about it. Well, of course I wouldn't talk about certain things but I also would feel compelled to be my real self.

    i don't know what's likable to others but i like authentic accepting people who say funny or interesting things or at least allow me to tease them for not being that way.

    Yes! Discuss the rejuvenating and age defying qualities of horse urine. You'll have to beat them back with your riding crop!
