    Yes, good points. I think the key is to get someone to like you without displaying any degree of distress beyond normal (polite?) concern about whether they do or not. I have made the mistake of being overly-concerned about whether someone liked me many times myself. Then, I realized that itself was an even bigger mistake.

    My husband put it that way: "I need you to need me, but not to be needy". Made me go

    Why would you think you're unlikeable? *quizzical*


    I have the same thoughts about myself, but it always surprises me when I see someone I perceive as gregarious and warm having those thoughts.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    I kind of relate to that but I will put it this way:
    I need my somebody close to me but I don't want anybody be so dependent on me that they are literally hanging on me (the children are exception of course ). Suffocating love does not suit me (or anybody else I think). By suffocating me you make sure I will run and fast.

    Just thinking Jen but I reckon you're doing well to be where you are.

    If I'm reading this right you think you're okay most of the time but every once in a while you stop and check, doubting your current "assumption".

    Sounds quite wise to me.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Why thank you, but you must be confusing me with someone else.
