The Real You

      When I was a kid I grew up with three lively brothers and a much younger sister. When I went to school kids who were in one of my brothers' classes would tell me that he was so quiet. I was dumbfounded. Were we talking about the same person?  It was at that point that I realized that people are often different in a crowd than they are one on one.  This especially applies to dating.
        There are many men who seem very outgoing in a crowd but when you get to know them outside of the crowd they are more reserved . I have dated  men who seem much quieter but once you get to know them they have quite a bit to say. This makes it difficult when people set others up on dates.                                    I am sure all of this applies to me as well. I may seem different when someone meets me than after one gets to know me . Then again, if someone reads my blog and knows me in person they probably know me pretty well.

Yeah, its one of the things that just aren't fair.

Those around you may not really know you, and be setting you up with the wrong people...if any at all.

Ah, but what's more important? I'd say it's what the person is like in private. After all, that's a couple will be spending most of its time after marriage.

I agree that who someone is in private when its just me and them is who they really are and most important
