Default When people you know don't say hi...

Does it kinda get to you? Like, you wonder if they don't like you, or if they think you're weird, or maybe they're just kinda weird themselves and do it to everybody? Tell me, do you have these thoughts?

It has happened to me before and I didn't like it so I stopped talking to that person completely. I did have those thoughts you described. Good people will always say hi to you. There's no excuse for not doing it.

i feel that everyone (outside of my family) looks down thier noses at me, thinking they are something fkn special.
i try to think of lyrics from a bob marley song when i feel like that.

"Well, the biggest - biggest man you ever - ever
Did-a see was-a - was-a once a baby."

I get that a lot, I know a lot of people, but they're only mere acquaintances so I guess I'd understand from that perspective. It's not like we associate with each other. Though I'm the kind of person that if I don't know you well, I would only say hi when they say it because I'm not sure if they remember me - so maybe it's the same for them. Even if it's not a hi, a smile is enough - though I smile at everyone...

Yes its very strange. People in my family like cousins and stuff i ignore and they ignore me when we cross paths.

I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.

Well, I'm usually too shy to say hi first unless it's someone I know fairly well. Sometimes I'll look away and pretend not to see people. If I see an acquaintance I haven't seen in a while sometimes I'll wonder whether they'll even recognize me anyway. And if it's someone I hardly talked to when I (sort of) knew them, who cares? Why talk to them now? I'd rather turn away and pretend not to be seen. It may even be someone I have nothing against and could say hi to, but often I'll still just look away. But then I'll wonder too if the other person noticed me and thinks I'm rude or thinks I didn't see them or if they don't even care. I dunno, whatever.

Why are you guys shy with people you know? That just seems strange to me.

I don't want to make a fool of myself in front of someone I know or whose opinion matters to me.

I could care less what a perfect stranger thinks of me (unless she's really cute).

I always worry that I won't see someone, and they'll be upset that I didn't say "hi" to them.

Honestly, I get shy even around my friends sometimes I've grown apart from friends in the past just cause I was afraid to call. But sometimes I figured they aren't trying too hard to keep in touch either, so it's only partly my fault. Sometimes I just don't know what to say to my friends. I might want to bring something up but I won't know how to or something. It sucks.

Yeah it bothers me. Happened to me this morning, as I was walking out to my car to go to work someone who knows my next door neighbor says "Hi" so I just say Hi back and then some other guy in the parking lot says, "Going to work?" with a big grin on his face. I'm like "WTF?", who is this guy.
