What is your opinion of me?
Please, I would really appreciate this. I want to know what you think of me, as truthfully, thoroughly, and specifically as possible. I'm asking for the complete picture, so PLEASE include the bad points with the good. I won't be upset with you. I want to know what my faults are, as well as my attributes.

It seems impossible for me to see myself in the way I appear. My self-image changes drastically from one day to the next. I doubt I could even take a guess at how I am perceived by others, so I yearn to see myself from the outside.

If you help me with this, I'll be forever grateful.

*takes deep breath* Well..you are my first true friend...you are nice, kind, weird, spazzy, true...um..when I first met you I was so surprised cause your face looked very different from pictures..and you moved kinda slow..you ARE a good person, one of the best I've ever met...you overcame anorexia...you are very strong...

Hey..I'd like you to do the same for me if you'd like..I always wanted to know what people really think of me..

Thank you so much! That's very good of you to say. That middle sentence cracks me up too...it's funny the things you notice :P

And you...you are animated, have a great sense of humour and are wonderfully strange. You know where your interests and opinions lie. You are a very strong person (stronger than you know), and this strength shows in your friendships and personality.
You do seem a bit too hesitant about a lot of things...namely anything negative. You tend to hide any negative feelings way too much, which isn't good for you. Besides that though, you're grrrrrreat!

I think you are an honest, good person, who has alot of self concious issues and worries too much about how she looks. You need to realize you are beautiful inside and out! You are very caring of others and are a deep thinker. I'm honestly glad I can call you a friend

You're far better than you think.
You're kind, sweet, intelligent, loyal, dedicated, determined, sexy, perky, fun, attractive, patient, understanding, caring, giving, talented...

You're awesome!!!!
You seem pretty balanced, you have a direction, and definite beliefs that you try to live by, and yuo seem very positive and open.
As i've stated a few times, sometimes you tend to get focused on the tiny details, instead of looking at the big picture, and while i think this causes you unnecessary grief, you are only human after all.
I think if you continue down your current path, you ar egoing to be a stunning woman (inside and out) in the near future.

You are THE AMANDA!!!

Kicker of Anorexias BITCH ASS!

And also awesome and stuff...

HOWEVER...

Sometimes i think you neglect your friends and such when it comes to being with Ari...Like instead of attempting to give everyone like half and half of your attention you seem to give Ari like 70% and 30% to the rest of us..

And i didnt really like reading you calling the time we were supposedly together "That Super-Angsty period of choosing Ari over Josh" and then proclaiming your official anniversary of being with Ari was BEFORE you admitted to "loving me" like it never even happened in the first place...

Thats my...like 10 cents i guess...heh

Aw ok, hun. I think there's a lot of truth to that, since tons of people have told me that in the past. I don't feel like I'm spending too much time with him, but then again...the whole point of my asking this question was to get a better view of myself, and obviously this needs to be part of that view.
I already talked with you about the rest, and I hope it helped a bit. I didn't make things clear enough in that entry, and I'm sorry for it.
Also though, the "super-angsty period" was not referring to my choices. It was simply referring to the stress and whinyness attacks I was getting at the thought of having to choose, and not knowing what was going to happen. I was not angsty because of my feelings for you...there was nothing wrong with that part of it.

Indeed...

But you must always remember...

The only person whose opinion of you that REALLY matters is your own

And no worries, I just felt that since you said you would like the bad with the good that i would oblige and say what i felt instead of what i think you wanted to hear...Meaning all good and no bad and such...

I wish more people were able to accept the bad with the good! Go you!

You're very ambitious, intelligent, good-hearted, and thoughtful. You're also very cute on the outside and have a great sense of humour. Sometimes you worry about things (including your looks) way too much, though. From what I gather, you also take yourself rather seriously.

I'm glad to know you. :) *hugs*

I really have never met you in person, so I don't have much of an opinion other than thinking you are someone intelligent... Why don't you do that Johari window, and see what people say, I found that to actually be kind of useful/interesting.

Thank you hun...and yeah, the Johari window was frickin' awesome! I found out that most people used the exact same sort of words to describe me, and it did help quite a bit :)
