Making Friends Sucks - Part Five

See that man over there? He was talking about me.
I don't like to be talked about. I don't mean the sort of blog post that Karin at Cafe Bebe did about online friends and mentioned me (you can all mention me with links to this blog all you like!). I mean proper gossiping or even just telling a story about me to someone else without my knowledge.

I know that you don't like to be talked about either, but do you think that People are talking about you, even when they aren't? Are you convinced every time you walk into a room/playground/supermarket/cafe/public area/office that people are immediately talking about you? You know how they start laughing just as you walk in, or they sidle off together, or all of the group look at you and then look away, or worse the conversation stops dead as you come near?

Phew, so its not just me.

I even hate when someone says something like "Well I heard that you..." and even though they are telling me to my face I still feel that they have slapped me. Maybe its this distrust of people that makes it so hard for me to make and keep friends? I don't know, I don't know if everyone feels this way or if it's just me.

I hope its not just me.
