So when I was with a friend,my phone rang and he saw on my wallpaper was a picture of myself, a selfie I took about a week earlier. No other friends, no clever caption or meme, just me. He thought this was weird and said that no one does this. I didn't really understand that, because from my point of view, I looked nice :rolleyes: and so yes, I wouldn't mind looking at that picture when I unlock my phone. I didn't even think it suggests I'm vain, because it's not like I'm showing everyone, uploaded it online, or even wanted him to see...it's just for me.

Does anyone else actually do this? Or see the problem in it?

What things do you do which could be seen as perhaps a little socially unacceptable?

Playing with people's pets/children that wander over to me, staring at strangers for a few seconds, giggling to myself

Keeping silent when I actually have nothing to say. Apparently its anti social, but I'm just very comfortable being silent when I literally have nothing to say, even if I'm with someone.
Me too! I just smile, or nod instead of saying yes, hand gestures etc when I'm not bothered to talk.. Instead of speech being a social thing I think of it as a means of communication when needed
It's antisocial but whatev

I use Makton Sign Language (working with SEN children) and I sometimes forget to switch it off...

I find myself avidly using sign language alongside my speech in all sorts of situations

The worst is when I'm driving and I sign thank you to other drivers, who obviously aren't Makaton users (dam them). You put fingers, hand palm down, on your chin and bring it down, open, to your chest.... I often get odd looks for that, I do it in restaurants and shops too, my boyfriend hates it... he finds it embarrassing.

-Fancy too many actors
-Quote too many things
-Actually want to be a cat lady because sod waiting around
-Giving up on speech mid-conversation and pulling stupid faces instead. I blame meme/gif culture.
-Sing while I'm walking down the street
-Talk to myself
-Swear a lot
-Sleep at unsociable hours, like going to bed at 5am and waking up at 1pm.
-Not wearing a hood/taking an umbrella when I go out in the rain unless I'm going to something where I have to look 'professional'. It's just a bit of rain, my hair will dry, no big deal.

I go shopping on my own quite often, because I don't really see it as a 'fun' thing to do but more of just a thing that needs to be done and I can get it done so much quicker if I'm only going into the shops I want to visit.

Going out w/ family is quite frowned upon as well, but I genuinely couldn't care what people think about that because they're the ones w/ the credit cards to pay for everything, haha.

Things I do which are socially unacceptable:

- not drinking alcohol

- being happy with my own company

- being very picky about who I spend time with

- not having been to a nightclub despite being in my second year of university (must get round to doing that somewhen)

Actually, the only thing I was trying to be was comfortable, thank you very much.
So you need fake eyes, ears, horns and a tail to feel comfortable? Are you a furry?

Dude it's totally adorable :unimpressed:
I like comfy, fluffy things kay, if they happen to come complete with body parts then it's a bonus because cewt.

On topic, I got rid of Facebook some months ago and multiple people have brought it up and have been giving me this :lolwut: face when I tell them why, like it's abnormal to not want to know what each of their babies are eating right this second, see sickening videos or just in general not want to be exposed to their idiocy

Same here. The facebook thing, I mean. They act like it's social suicide. Meh.

Won't throw away a pair of trainers untill they have literally fallen apart, and even then not untill I've spent a few weeks with it all held together by gaffa tape.

Having a selfie of just yourself as your phone wall paper is definitely weird for me. If someone did that at our school they would definitely get ripped on a lot, and deservedly so. How can you say that's not vain?

The only Londoners I have ever found friendly are those not from London who moved there later :P

Macclesfield?
That's a shame - I'm the other way round, born in London and grew up near Crewe :P

If that's socially frowned on, all I can say is that an awful lot of guys are outside society. :rolleyes:
