What makes you uncomfortable?

With me, it's when people stare at me, and don't look away for a long time. My friends does it a lot with me now, because they find my reaction hilarious

  • For me, it's sort of the opposite of being stared at. Being stared at is no problem for me because it all comes down to self-confidence. I get stared at alllll the time in my every-day life because I was born almost blind and because of this I sometimes behave in ways that must seem very clumsy or odd to people who don't know anything about me (I trip over stuff, I walk in a slightly funny way, I accidentally bump into people etc). I've learned to live with the stares quite well. My self-confidence is big enough that I can just ignore it and tell myself "oh well, let them stare if they feel the need to".

    What makes me really uncomfortable is when people don't give me any eye contact during a conversation. This is important to me like to everyone else because I still have a little bit of vision left and when I'm close to somebody (for example having lunch with another person) I can see their face and their facial expressions etc.. Now, when I mean "not giving enough eye contact" I don't mean "being shy and looking at your feet a little too much". That's no problem. I don't mind that. But I have a good friend who - despite me generally liking her a lot - really gets on my nerves when I have a conversation with her and it's just the two of us (for example when we have dinner together). She doesn't just look at her feet from time to time, she looks into a completely different direction. And she doesn't do this for a few seconds but for one or sometimes several minutes without any eye contact with me whatsoever. So while I'm sitting across from her and telling her a story, she would for example look to the right and watch the old couple next to us eat or she would follow the waiter/waitress with her eyes (even if they do something very unspectacular) or she would look to the door of the restaurant and watch people enter and leave. She also doesn't nod and she doesn't give any verbal feedbacks such as "uh" or "uhu". She just quietly stares into a completely different direction or right through me for the whole dinner. It really, really bothers me because it makes me feel as though she's not even listening to me and she doesn't care about what I'm saying. I've told her a couple of times that it makes me very uncomfortable but she doesn't seem to be able to change it (or maybe she doesn't want to). She would just say something like "I don't see the problem, I'm listening to you." It can be very annoying.

    • Hey, I know exactly what you mean. I have been born with a very strong visual disability (I'm almost blind on both eyes) and I experience the same thing in my every-day life (not all the time but from time to time). There was this lady at the bus stop once who talked to me like I was a 3-year old toddler or, as you put it, mentally ill. I just kind of swallowed it but later I wished I would have just said to her "Ma'am I might be blind, but I'm not stupid".

    • Exactly, I get that often too, like you say it's not all the time, but it's enough to be a pain in the arse haha. It really wears on me too when I'm with people and somebody speaks to them about me as if I'm not capable of speaking for myself.

  • When someone is calling me at 2am.
