For as long as I can remember I have been accused of lack of enthusiasm for things I do, even if I love them. When somebody asks "aren't you excited?" I simply can't find that connection. It's like…Continue

about 3 months ago somebody mentioned ADD to me, I read about it and discovered I had every trait associated with it except for one: often being too late at appointments. It still does happen to me that I forget about one, but it's rare. Here are the other traits:
-being dreamy or thinking a lot
-(therefore) being more passive
-trouble making choices
All these things are…Continue

I have a fantasy (amongst others) about this beautiful, strong, succesful woman, largely representing my personality in her verbal behavior but much more lucky when it comes to genetic material...I call her Juno. So why is she female? And what does she mean to me? Reasons I can think of:
1. Wanting to be complete
So she is not male. What psycho-analists call the anima, if you will?

I have to apologize for another long read beside my first blog post, especially towards people with short attention spans. But this may help. Initially this was intended as a personal response, but I think this could be important to more people here. What triggered it was Cordellia's remark to me about:
the difficulty of making friends.
Probably your fantasy world is much more attractive than the outside world. This keeps you from truly being interested.…

My story, APOLOGIES for the long read I'm putting you through!
my name is Floris, 35 now, male and I'm from the Netherlands, a small country with plenty of rainy days but also sunny ones where feelings of guilt are placed on pale people not going outside because the summers don't always last very long. I have spent a large part of my life inside my mind and have found a rich life there, but also experienced pain for the lack of a life outside of that mind.…

oops...I think I accidentally deleted your comment on my blog post. I apologize. I'm new to this site. Just wanted to let you know so you didn't think that I deleted it cuz i didn't like what you wrote. That isn't the case.
I'm not sure why I have such trouble getting along with people. I see very few people nowadays and only ones I get along with, so it's a little better, but I have a feeling this will forever be a problem of mine. Part of it is how sensitive I am to my surroundings. I can't be around people when they eat, for example, because the noise drives me crazy and upsets me. I'm always on sensory overload. Also, I just can't get interested in anything people have to say, and I'm always in a daze, so I never have anything to say myself. I'd love to make new friends (not just online), but that's very difficult for me. I'm glad you joined. We're here for you when you need us. Let me know if you ever need anything or have a concern.
Welcome! Thanks for joining!
