No I’m not talking about the animals, I’m talk about these types of chameleons.  I guess everyone does it when their in middle school.  Whether you’re a prep, goth, jock, music geek, etc. you just trying to fit in a mold.  But the saddest part is that for some this has extended into the dating realm.

Many people change their looks and personality to catch the “perfect” date.  And for some it’s depressing to see how far they will go.  I just finished reading this book, and this is exactly what the main character does.  She has one boyfriend who is living off hand outs so she’ll change her attire to jeans, tees, and sneakers when she’s with him.  When she’s with her other boyfriend, who is a mulit-millionaire, she finds herself in only the finest designer names.  Of course this book is fiction, but I’ve seen it recently in real life too. 

Too many people are afraid to lose something just because they’ve had it for so long.  It might not be the best relationship for them, but to them they don’t want to have to say they’ve wasted the past few months of their life.  So instead they just try to fit in, and I see them as different people when they are with me as opposed to their significant other.  Why are so many people afraid to be themselves?  Are they really that horrible?  I hope not and I don’t think so. Sooner or later your bf/gf will find out who you really are, and they’re going to wonder why you’ve been keeping yourself a secret.  They may even go a step further to ask: “What are they still hiding?”  Being a chameleon makes many more issues than it solves.

    I think people really are that horrible and boring. There’s so many people who are not worth talking to more than 5 times. After 5 times, they’ve said everything interesting that they’re ever going say to you. I need to formulate this further, I just came up with it as I was typing.
