    Who on here is pretending to be something they'd not?

    It can be as simple as "[O]h! I never actually played the flute. I meant the meat flute," or "I'm not actually a male/female."

    I doubt that this will have many responders-of-truth since the internet provides a perfect veil/guise.

    You pick one. List a fear- or list something you've lied about. It's truth or dare; but really it's truth or better truth.

    Mine is- I'm scared of mosquitoes. They freak, literal usage of the word, me out.

    I hate liars. I don't pretend to be anyone else other than who I am. I don't want to be made fun off or looked on as ignorant. I guess that's my biggest fear.

    I am afraid the most of the misinformation

    I hate the most sectarians, which to me are everyone, who are not atheists

    I am no different online then I am in person. I would rather withhold information about myself than lie.
    My only minor fib is my location. I live outside of Orlando. If I listed my actual town, nobody would believe it's an actual city.

    I have a very bad fear of water though. Bodies of water to be exact. I go into extreme panic attacks if I step into the ocean or someone tries to rough house with me in the pool. I can swim perfectly, I enjoy being in the pool but the moment someone touches me, I lose it. I can't deal with the ocean if I can't clearly see the bottom and everything around me. You couldn't pay me to go into a lake either.

    I have acrophobia. I can't get more than 6 feet off the ground on a ladder or drive across certain bridges. Flying however, does not bother me.

    I am like that about water, I can swim in a pool but anything where I can't see the bottom, I'm out. I have swam in lakes, and the ocean a couple of times when I was younger. Its a fear that seems to have developed somewhere in my adult years.
    Also I don't like spiders. The little ones don't bother me to bad but the big furry ones are to much.:eek:utahere

    My two biggest fears are snakes, cant even touch a dead one, and the thought of being unable to support my family scares me to death. I know it may sound odd but, if i think about losing my ability to provide i sweat and have even teared up. I think thats what drives me in the work place,fear and paranoia. Throw in some anxiety and you have, ME!

    I'm right with you on the ability to provide for your family. I hurt my back on the job several years ago, it still causes problems now and then. I'm just waiting for the inevitable when I am unable to work anymore, The kind of work I do anyway. Just hoping my wife can finish her education before that happens.

    I'm a Christian. Yet I don't hate you and completely respect your freedom to choose to believe whatever it is that you want to believe.

    Do you hate me knowing that I am, at most, the complete opposite of an atheist?

    I'm like that too. I can't swim perfectly, though. My bone and muscle density make it more difficult.

    Crossing over those metal grate bridges... USED TO BE SIMPLY THE WORSE experience for me (give or take a couple).

    This shit...

    No... no... and fuck NO.

    Even just looking at it in picture form kind of freaks me out. I know it's illogical. But I'm also agoraphobic and bodies of water... yeah..

    Edit:

    I tried using the re-sizing tool; but it didn't seem to work very well. SO I just linked the photo.

    I pretty much am also the same way online that I would be IRL given the situations. I know it's easy for people to just dismiss me as an asshole though because I tend to debate a lot because I value factual info or I have a different view/opinion on something, which leads to challenging things and getting into debate where some may not be looking for it. Not to say things don't get heated and I may legitimately become an asshole at points, it's just not my intention the majority of the time. I know misinterpretation of words online can cause issues too at times. I'm actually generally a moderate and laid back person, believing in live and let live and wishing people would leave each other the fuck alone more often. It's just easy to get wound up over various injustices and people being willfully ignorant, etc.


    I don't have any phobias that I know of yet.

    Thought I'd use that line for one of the very few times I act oddly.

    I too can sympathize with the fear of not being able to look after my family, I had........how do I put this............a "difficult" childhood and was left to fend for myself quite often.

    I dread the thought of my daughter EVER feeling unwanted, unloved or helpless. The only problem is it makes me very over protective at times :(

    My other personal big fear is for some reason large concentrated crowds. This one I don't completely understand as in my younger party days, you would find me dazed out of my brain at some rave party every weekend.

    The anxiety came about AFTER I got clean and sorted my shit out, now crowds make me break into a sweat and I can't think straight........go figure

    I fear being financially dependent on others or on the government. I was raised on a large family by loving parents who did not have much but taught us in word and in deed everything they could to make us independent. Perhaps it has led be to be a workaholic at times but I just could not stand having to ask others for money or material things. If I want something I would rather take additional jobs or do additional work to earn the money for it. I have been fortunate to achieve financial independence for the lifestyle I desire.
