As folks socialized as women, most of us are taught to be modest and feel embarrassed about saying anything good about ourselves while the "horn tooters" get ahead. I dare you all to list 5 complimentary things about yourself (no one here will see you blush).
Thanks for posting this, lanley - it's a brilliant idea! I'm really looking forward to seeing what people post in this thread - wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone on this forum would post something here?!!
And also Erica - I can't think of a time when I've heard you not be a nice person! You're great
Okay. I'm going to pretend this isn't difficult...
1. I'm a critical,analytical, logical and independent thinker and this enable me to do useful things such as devise strategies and programs that could assist professionals (for example, teachers) and others in understanding the needs and experiences of those with mental illnesses such as panic disorder and dysthymia. I really like this about myself, because it helps me to support people I love. <3 2. I'm honest. 3. I feel I'm quite good at analysing music from sociological, historical, psychological and technical points of view. 4. I am creative - this makes me an inventive composer and good cook! 5. I like my round hips and the patterns of their pale stretch marks.
There! That wasn't impossible... next person **makes gestures of encouragement** you can do it!!
it's hard to say sumthing about myself... but i think its the best to start think about me than bf or same kinda topics!
1. i'm good cook..well.. i can at least survive .not sure about others 2. i m activist.. i always join in same sex rally or actions.. but i m not involved with any club or institution.. i m free lance activist.. 3. i'm going to Bangladesh after finish my degree to work for poor people ..hope it would be a great experience in my life. 4.i love to chat with friends... whatever.. i like to talk 5.i love hindi movie and i can speak fluent hindi..yeahhh!!!!

A great idea! Positivity is always a good thing. OKAY! IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER:
1 - I am very creative and I can do all that drawing and painting and writing stuff (although music is a bit beyond me). 2 - I have never given a compliment I don't mean and have no intention of this changing. 3 - I am rarely afraid to speak up. 4 - I have high visual-spatial and language types of intelligence, which is sort of a way of saying, 'hey I'm smart' and qualifying it so I don't feel embarrassed. 5 - I am a good cook. (I know, way to fit nicely into my gender role. But it's true. =D)
Btw vittoria, re being good at cooking... It doesn't have to mean you're making pot roast for a husband... whilst wearing a polka dot apron We women need to eat too... mmm. Cake. Eggplant. Polenta. Not necessarily in that order.
That said... I think I'd like a polka dot apron, actually!

I realised that maybe I should have just put my name as my user name, but by force of habbit just used a random online name. >.<' So it's Jaz anyways annnnd five things...
1. I can cook well 2. I am well travelled and am able to understand different cultures 3. I am good a various random things 4. I like to think that most of the time that I am a good friend 5. I have nice hair!
I really should have mentioned that I got this dare from a different website, transdude.com. My excuse at the time was that I don't think you'll be able to see the original post if you're not a member of the website. But I could be wrong about that.
