Sometimes I wonder how others would describe me. I know I can barely describe myself since there is an exception to nearly everything, but others may be able to pinpoint it better. As far as I know, it's easier for others to describe someone than it is for someone to describe themselves. Though how I would describe some people involves certain..exceptions, too, but, well. I know that I have some habits that, if people didn't know me, might irritate them otherwise; which is why I tend to be more quiet until I know someone. Really, in this case I mean how I am when I think to have upset someone, and how I might have a bit of an issue letting it go until I'm sure one way or the other. Things like that I can describe, but others, not so much. So sometimes I wonder how people perceive me, what they think I think of them, and other things like that.
Perspective changes from person to person, and depending on the relationship one has with someone, that changes the perception even more. From casual to friendly to romantic and everything else, people see whoever differently for that reason. I try to keep that in mind when I meet people, try to not judge right away, so first impressions only mean but so much to me. It's the second and third meeting that matters to me. Maybe I'm strange for that, but with how you view someone and how that can change, it makes it difficult to just go off the first impression. So sometimes when my mind wanders, I think on how people who are closer to me see me, and if it's anything like how I see myself. Some people shape themselves and pretend to be someone they aren't in SL, which makes things all the more different if such is found out. I can't say much on why people would weave elaborate lies, other than maybe because they aren't happy with who they are or because they want to play games with people. I do wonder on that, but I can't really have anyone to ask on that, at least I really hope not. Maybe I'll put more thoughts up on that later, if I come up with some.
