Musing of a tired Redhead  
So, is it 'better' in some way to get to know someone intellectually before personally? *mind is wandering*

I asked this question of someone. Their response was 'the notions and such that are formed are probably a bit more accurate than the ones you might get with a physical first meeting.'

Why would this be?

*wonders why me in little black dress would be any different than me online*

Oh! *Good* point.

Public face.

And I think I am a lot like you. I'm very polite in person, almost to a fault. Too much Roman Catholic school and daddy was an AF Colonel.

As for the intimidation thing - people keep telling me that this happens but I really, really don't understand why. It's not like I'm 6 ft tall or a model or something. Stu told me this just the other evening when I asked him why I was the *only* one of that group of little girls (in a time long ago and far away) that he didn't date. I just cannot wrap my mind around him saying 'I was afraid of you'. I was nice, I was polite, I even have a sense of humour... *sigh*

Walls - walls are goodness *smile*

...now has food for thought...

Re: Part II
so far i've only gotten a few points from people on why i might be intimidating.

1. the way i walk. i guess that's from the runway training. i do have a distinct way of walking, very assured and purposeful. had a boyfriend who affectionately called me "sarge" because of my no-nonsense way of getting from point a to point b with no dallying around, and he used to tease me about having such an aggressive but feminine walk. :p
2. the way i talk. don't know why, expect maybe for Dem Big Wurds and probably my smartass, cynical idea of funny. *shrug*
3. some people find it very upsetting that i *look* really innocent and as if i've led a terribly sheltered existence, but when i open my mouth an entirely different person seems to live in there. it's just too much contradiction for some people. *shrugs again*.

Dem Big Wurds

*nod*

- Brains. Always been a problem *sigh* I tried being a bimbo once - tried really hard for about a year. It didn't work.

- The red hair. Com'on - redheads are just people like everyone else. I'm the most polite and well-behaved redhead around, generally. But it's like people are just waiting for an explosion of some sort. Stereotyping at it's best *snort* Did I mention that I'm polite and well-behaved and such in public? I really do have a sense of humor too. And I don't regularly eat people for lunch either...

I'm sure there are other things too.
