How would they think you're retarded from that?

I didn't mean retarded I meant stupid but basically what I meant was. Here's an example I would try to be funny by acting stupid like if someone was talking about something that everyone should know about such as Hitler and I would reply saying: "Who's that?" even though I would in fact know exactly what they're talking about. In hindsight I bring it upon myself but it's frustrating when people don't know when you're joking or being sarcastic.

Just to get shut down like ohh its just an act i'm not gonna fall for it.
Time and time again it always happens when I find a good girl.
But the end up thinking i'm too go to be true...
Sigh lol My life.


You are too good to be true.

As for proving yourself, rap lyrics aside, all men face that challenge. The attitude you hold now, shapes your future not because it defines you, but because it defines your challenges. People shoot braggarts down, because they fear they'll succeed, not because they're convinced otherwise. All of your future hurdles are based on the lofty claims you make about yourself today. You won't end up with a double PhD, or flashing your money on TV if you set the bar low.

People used to think I was a stoner when my hair went down to my midback. Now that I'm in the service, well, not so much anymore. haha

Hey at least you have a sense of humor about it though, hard thing to learn is to be able to laugh at yourself.

For me, I'm extremely shy in real life so people think I'm a stuck up bitch..but I'm not. Also I get asked when I'm graduating high school or get told I'm not old enough to drink and I'm 30 lol.


Yeah, but looking young is good as a woman, isn't it?

Most guys, if they gain a little weight and get a bit fat-faced, start to look really childish. I'm one of those unfortunate types. So, if I don't have a beard, people assume I'm not old enough to drink. And apparently I look horrifying with a beard, so I stay clean-faced out of vanity...

At the start of every semester, it always happens at least once, I'll have a class gather in the lecture hall, and I'll be standing down by the blackboard waiting for people to shut up so I can start. But they won't. Why? Because they're still waiting for the professor to show up. The first time it happened to me, I didn't understand what was going on. I stood there watching about 300 freshmen, many of whom kept getting up and walking back out into the hallway, and for some reason they kept getting louder, so I started to get worried something had happened (I'm somewhat paranoid after all the school-shootings that it's going to happen here). And I almost had a panic attack, and fled back into my office. I took a pill and when I came back I overheard a girl complaining "When the hell is Dr. ******* going to arrive." and I was like wtf, that's my god damn name! Oh jesus christ...! And then I just started shouting at everyone.... :/ Now at the start of the semester I grow a beard, wear a suit and put on my red striped bow-tie of ultra-nerdiness, so there aren't any doubts as to my profession in their stereotype laden minds.

The only thing that beats that, was the time I gave a presentation at a chemical conference and had this one older gentleman ask me during the Q&A if I should even be attempting the approach I was, when the molecular catalysts analog produced by (ME) seemed just as efficient and already worked at the same temperature. And then he cited a paper I wrote, like I was an asshole for not having already read it.......... I slapped my forehead it was so ironic.... He knew the guy who wrote the paper had the same exact last name as I did, he just couldn't believe that the guy who wrote the paper wasn't 75 million years old.... I got creative and said: "Well.... Like father like son!"

by the way, my dad is an engineer, not a chemist... I was just pretending to be my own son... The two people in the audience who actually knew me laughed... god my stories really suck don't they? This is why I never talk about myself in real life...

People assume I'm a socially awkward nerd because I have glasses and am good at drawing anime and get good grades.

This could not be farther from the truth though

Apparently that I look like a bitch or too serious, it's like some people look at me like I'm a ticking time bomb, I guess that's just the way my face looks, I have a high arch in my eyebrows that can sometimes make me look mad. But this is coming from people at my job, where Hell is disguised with fluorescent lighting, so obviously I'm gonna look like that.

I've been told I can be cold at times, too. I'm sort of shy, & if I don't know what to say I just make a gesture & stay quiet. I don't want to upset or offend anyone for answering something wrong or giving my opinion when that's what they weren't asking for.
