    Why is it that if someone confronted me in public (or in front of friends) I would melt - but if I was on my own I'd be fine? I honestly don't know why. An example of this is, say if someone came up to me to start a fight, on my own I'd be fine but with friends I couldn't handle it? Sometimes I think it's the fact that I don't like being embarrassed, but I honestly don't know. Anyone got any answers because it's driving me insane :p.

    You just don't want to look bad/mess up in front of your friends?

    That is unusual as most people would back down from confrontation when alone rather than in front of people! :confused:

    I know that feeling. Im not one for holding back if someone is dead set on pounding my face in, but I have "surprised" friends with my reactions, which they were not expecting.

    Yeah, I agree with that. I feel my back burning with words (in other words paranoia..heh :p).

    I tend to be quite the opposite. Despite being 6'5 I hate being the object of someone else's frustrations in any situation if I'm alone.

    If I'm with a bunch of mates though it doesn't really bother me as I know if someone does decide to kick off then they'll all come windmilling in.

    Right,... you and me, outside NOW (but leave the rubber gloves with desmo :p).

    I guess the humiliation factor makes it more difficult when getting confronted infront of your friends?
