I don't get excited very often and when I am I'm usually pretty restrained. It used to upset my mom when we went shopping. She'd ask if I liked something and I'd say, "Yes." Then she'd say, "Well, could you act like it?" :roll:

I get excited a lot at times but I don't really show it in social settings thou. I ramble a lot online or around a couple people offline that I'm close to. I think some of it is ADHD & I'm kind of emotional at times & being exited is related to emotions or something like that

I'm the opposite...I rarely get excited. It gets on people's nerves or upsets them sometimes, like when I receive presents or something I just cannot show much emotion or get excited. Once my parents surprised me with a car and I still didn't feel very excited. The only time I got really, really excited was on Christmas morning when they told me I was getting a horse :mrgreen: I was about ten years old. I get excited about stuff like ordering something that's coming in the mail, but it manifests more like anxiety...obsessing over when it will arrive.

It's really hard to show enthusiasm towards other people's happiness but if it's about something I'm interested in I'm jumping around the place like a 6 year old.

Usually when I'm feigning excitement I just say 'Oh wow'. Real excited is "HOLY #^$%$&^% #^$%&$%*%&* I CAN'T BELIVE THAT %^&$%^&$^$ IS HAPPENING! OMG OMG OMG! My chest hurts.

My friend says that I see the world like 6 y.o. child does.

I also have strong emotions, just like you above. If something nice happens, I jump around and sing.
I like clothes and accessories with cartoons characters on them. I love funny clothes. I wish I could be like Björk, I mean her style.

I put in a PBX voicemail server (Ok, I'm a Nerd, if you
don't know but want to know what a pbx voicemail server
is please ask and I am glad to share what I know)
and when it works finally we can now have voicemail
and all the space and messages we want (brother and me)
and it routes brother's calls to his extension and mine
to my extension by telling caller display ID
info to the computer and we can even block
out bad people's numbers and make strangers
numbers identify themselfs.

When I got it all put in and put the new fones
into use, I Mewed and Purred and clapped
and said "BEENZ!! ! BEENZ!! ! BEENZ!! ! BEENZ!! !"
I know, I'm weird but I can't help it.

May The Power Of Mew
be with you all.

I'm an excitable girl (they all say).

I do not tend to show excitement immediately when something is exceptionally exciting or unexpected. If something really exciting happens, it can take days before my excitement will manifest as excitement. Until then I will be struck dumb just thinking about the thing that is exciting to me and might find it hard to even move if I think about it. Once that phase is over (and the more exciting the thing is, or more unexpected/new it is, the longer that phase lasts), I am very excitable, to the point of jumping up and down on the spot and shaking my hands when I think about the object of my excitement.

Yes. Heaven forbid I learn something new about meerkats or animals or else my poor parents hear about it for months. I think they've gotten used to it because they tried in vain to limit me talking about meerkats but it made me get super depressed and not feel as if they loved me unconditionaly so they let me and they too are meerkat experts.

Oh yea Z.

Here's a bit of a geeky descriptor here:
It's an obsessionally recursive thought pattern for me ,revolving and revolving around with the new item. 8)
Its all hidden externally ,but the clue is , is that I'm zoned out.

I think I am like this for the most part. Even when I am given something I genuinely like, I do not get excited. I think "I wanted this. Now I can *insert activity which requires previously wanted item*."
Often, people are displeased by my reaction or lack thereof.

I do not naturally show any emotion when other people are excited either. Lately, I have been trying to fake some excitement when other people tell me things they are excited about. I have always found the "awe" sound people make at the happening of happy events to be extremely annoying; however, I tried it when one of my friends told me she was pregnant and when another told me she was getting married. I am afraid it came out more like the Grandma-just-died sort of "awe" though. :?

Yeah like someone else mentioned, I do feel exitement about things but I don't show it,
like going away or something the wife has purchased for me.
The wife has actualy taken stuff back because she did not think I liked it.
Find our relationship has improved since being DXed, now she knows I just
do not have the ability to show exitement with facial expresstion and unknown to myself
untill resently my voice tells little about my feelings, apperently I sometimes just
speak louder
But yes I get exited like a little kid at times

I can get so excited over things that I get a head rush and get overwhelmed; I often need to sit down away from the action and catch my breath and get my blood pressure out of the quadruple digits. I might yell, cheer, squeal, bounce, and tell anyone within hearing distance about the exciting item/event 50 times.

I'm 44. :lol:
