    I have this thing about freckles and moles I'l never talk about them with anyone I find it embarrasing I don't know why. I also pretend Im not listening when others talk about them. Logically I can see how they are no big deal but its like Im fascinated but am embarrased to mention them. I know Im weird but I want to get behind it Ive never understood it. Are any of you like this or funny about certain things or words to the point where you think you are are odd? I can't find anything about this on the internet ususally people have quirks but there are other people like them you know..

    I don't get it, do you have freckles/moles or do you just find them an embarrasing topic of conversation?

    Just find the conversation embarrasing, I don't really mind that much if people see that I have them but I wonder how people who have loads can not be embarrased. I know its stupid I hate myself.

    I have quite a few freckles, I don't really find them embarrassing. I used to hate them but I'm used to them now. Did you used to get teased for having them?

    To answer the OP, I don't think there's anything I'm really embarrassed to discuss apart from topics of a sensitive/personal nature, I guess.

    No, but when I was like 6/7 I used to hide them when I saw my mum looking at them.

    Its a weird type of embarrasement too, not the type that you get when you make a fool of yourself its like embarrasement/bit of anger.

    Most people don't I don't think.

    Its not just this I get the same feeling with other words too, as a kid I would shout 'hey' whenever the word happy was mentioned and had the same feeling then. Does anyone know anything about this Ive searched the internet etc Im sick of not knowing why Im like this no one else seems to have abnormal reactions to certain words or things.

    i know you're not getting at people with freckles but i just thought i'd add for my own sake and fellow frecklers that rachel bilson, mischa barton, sienna miller, penelope cruz and megan fox all have freckles and are gorgeous. i guess i've got rachel bilson freckles.

    I have lots of freckles and I used to be embarrassed about them, but I decided ignoring them was a lot easier and made me feel better than being embarrassed, so now I try not to think about them.
