    Default Do people "get" you

    I have come to the realisation that apart from my Mum and DH no one really "gets" me and even with them I don't know if they understand or just accept me because they can still sometimes question some of my personality traits and I got to thinking is this normal? Do people "get" you or are you often alone in your way of thinking, or doing and handling things?

    I don't think many people do get me.
    I think I'm a bit complicated at times.
    I don't have a large circle of friends or acquaintances. All of my friends have known me since I was a kid or a teen except for one.
    My mum really knows me but we are very different so she rarely understands me.
    I don't feel like my husband gets me at all. We didn't know each other enough before we committed.
    I've always been the type to do it my way which doesn't fit in with everyone else most of the time. I consider myself someone who swims upstre@m lol

    Btw why is stre@m a blocked out word??

    I don't really think about it to be honest. I don't mind if people get me or not! I have my DP and a few close friends, I socialise through work and school pick up, and just get on with it! I'm quite introverted and happy that way. My family definitely don't get me but I don't let that bother me

    I think people can 'get' me. I don't think I am too complex for people to understand what I have to say. marie.

    No not usually. But then I often don't 'get them' so I guess it goes both ways.

    Nope.
    Very rarely does someone get me. I usually try give people time to get to know me when we first meet, because they generally don't like me at first. And even then, there are only a few people in my life who really get me.

    Not generally. There are a few people out there that do. DH does.

    My Dad used to "get" me, but he had a stroke 18 months ago and since then we don't gel like we use to.
