Hello, I was just wondering how many of you guys can related to these

Driving - I have ZERO desire to drive. At all. I don't mind taking public transportation, getting friends to give me rides, etc. I just don't want to drive.


I love to drive. It's relaxing to me. Which is bad with $4 gas.

Quote:
Criminal Mind - I have a criminal mind. For some reason, I think of every single possible outcome, how to ensure the outcome happens, how to avoid that outcome, etc.


I very often consider every possible outcome of a decision prior to making it, but I don't consider that a "criminal mind."

Quote:
Lying - Related to Criminal Mind, I can lie extremely well. I can come up with a story, that sounds beleivable enough to be true, yet not able to be disproved. No one ever can tell the difference.


I can lie, I just don't like to. Just a personal preference.

Quote:
Love - I rely on a calculated form of love. I don't "feel" love... I "think" love. When asked if I love someone, I run thru a mental checklist, tally up points, and get a rating... Then convert it to "love" "like", etc.


I'm asexual so while I can see someone is objectively attractive I'm not attracted to them. Also, I've never been in love. And have no desire to pursue it.

Food can't touch - No matter what I eat, if the food isn't designed to be eaten as a whole (Biscuits and Gravy), the food CANNOT touch. Drives me INSANE.


Kinda weird but ok. Whatever floats your boat.

I don't love driving, but I hate any other method of transportation. I usually prefer to drive than to watch someone else drive though.

That's not a criminal mind. That's a good mind, because you're putting it to good use. I try to do the same.

I can lie. I've done it before. But I prefer to tell the truth. Usually when I lie it's obvious that I'm lying, but whenever I tell the truth nobody believes me either. :roll:

I'm not sure I feel love either. I don't really even understand what love is, besides some sort of emotional bond between people.

It doesn't drive me insane, but I don't like it either.
