of course they do, because it's easier to pretend than to show people who you really are and get rejected. At least thats how I see it.

What about me, I don't have a fear of rejection so does that make me a deviant from the norm just because I don't conform? If people don't like me, fuck em', I am who I am and if they don't like that then thats their problem. Sure, its easier to conform and/or wear the mask for fear of rejection but do I really want to live my life the "easy" way as a blender with no personality and a style that is identical to twenty other people in my street? Hell no, fuck that, I'm a black sheep - I'm somebody.

what about you? Everyone is somebody whether its good or bad you are somebody. how many times don't you walk in the street and people act one way but when you truly get to know them they are something completely different and it could be for many reasons most of the time it's because they fear that rejection. I say all the time you don't like the way I am I don't give a fuck but to some extent you do give a fuck. I am the black sheep of my family and I like it that way.

I think everyone believes it's easier to be someone else. And, of course, everyone wants to be someone they're not.

False, I have never wanted to be someone else; I accepted who God made me to be and I strapped on a pair. I understand that there are not many black sheep but there are some and I am definitely one of them. It is also my understanding that there are others out there who do not want to be someone that they are not; I can't be the only black sheep.

I didn't mean being someone else, I mean changing something about yourself. That would be wanting to be someone you're not. And, I know for a FACT that EVERYONE wants to change something about themselves.

All human relationships are based on lies. Either implicit or explicit.

Did you know that females who are ovulating on average show much more skin, and sway their hips more? They produce a hormone during ovulating that enhances the appearance of skin giving it a "glow". The fact is that women, biologically and behaviorally embellish their attractiveness when they are most fertile.

This is a form of "lying" that may occur even without your knowledge. Males on the other hand tend to sway their shoulders more when they believe they are being judged by females.

Most biological and psychological lying is due to mate attraction, but indeed the same thing can be seen in other relationships.

Side: yes

If they see who I really am, before I enacted the master plan, then every thing will be ruined!

Many people do, perhaps most, and it also depends on context. Some people are genuine in private and not so much when among people they are not deeply intimate with like best friends family and lovers. I try to be genuine most of the time even at the risk of being inappropriate in some cases because i dont want to hide who i am. So yes but no

Side: Yes

There are people who do hide behind a mask because they possess evil hearts where they don't want anyone to know about those evil hearts.

Side: Yes
