No Filters

I've been spending a fair amount of time with people who have no filters. If you are unsure of what I mean by that, I mean this- anything they think, they will say. There is nothing between the first thought and the mouth= no filter. Don't get me wrong, I love people like this. If I had any super power in the world it would be the ability to read minds. I am aware this makes me a creep, but I am just curious about what people REALLY think. And with filter-less people, they tell me exactly what they are thinking most of the time. Love it. I enjoy the honest. The brutally honest.

Anyway. Point is, as much as I enjoy being around people like this, it makes my curiosity so much worse. I hear what they think about other people, and then I wonder... what do they think about me? Then I decide I don't care what they think about me, and I wonder what other people think about me. Not for any reason other than my own selfish curiosity.

Example: I was walking somewhere with a a filter-less friend, and there was a fairly hefty girl in front of us. Said friend turned to me made a remark about her being a beast and not ever wanting to meet her in a dark alley. Granted, as hefty as this girl was, I'd cross her in a dark alley any night. Now this girl wasn't much bigger than me... so in mind, it would makes sense if someone a little smaller than my friend, saw me walkin around they would think the same thing. So... do people not want to meet me in an alley?

And this kind of stuff has been happening for the past few weeks, and every time they say something ...descriptive about someone, I wonder if people use those words to describe me. Tangent- Some people use words that they think are perfectly legitimate descriptive words, and said words other people find offensive. Example 'Husky'.

OK, So. Please. Help me with my curiosity, if you feel up to it, tell me, honestly what you think about me. Am I someone you don't ever want to cross? For real, submit it anonymously if you want. I don't care. How would you describe me to your friends?
