Sofia replied to David Burkett's discussion Describe your actions and personality
"Around friends: Fun, social, the "life of the party". At home: More quiet, reserved, caught up with own thoughts (Aka my maladaptive daydreaming)."

Do you guys feel that you are overly secretive? Do you refuse to volunteer information especially in group conversations? Kind of like Clark Kent laying low as the group discusses a man a red cape flying through the air? Do you have the personality of a spy or undercover detective?

"It appears that the guys with this disorder fantasize about men and the women also fantasize about men, but for different reasons. For example, the man I fantasize after is Tupac Shakur for role model reasons and personality traits that I desire. A…"

Fishno7 replied to David Burkett's discussion Is this considered fantasizing
"If it is a definition thing, I don't think I am anyone qualify enough to answer this, lol. I guess this thinking and MDD would definitely relate in some way, just because...it feels really similar, in the way of coping with my negative feelings."

If you had to pick one problem being the worse, is it difficulty paying attention and listening or difficulty socializing and expressing yourself with others?

I pace the moment I am alone in an elevator or alone in a single person restoom. How common is this with MD? I feel like these feelings that i pace to are good energy and full of creativity. I've done this my whole life. Is this a habit that needs to stop completely or should I set aside time to pace?

Question
