  • hahaha I hate it too! My son has severe autism...if you know anything about autism, most people with autism hate that even more than the rest of society. Well his one therapist was a close talker...and he would react badly with her everytime....i finally had to tell them why I thought he reacted this way and they took her off his case and gave him someone hubby would laugh because everytime i would be talking with her getting a report from their day together, he would be taking guesses on how far down the hall she'd back me up. He would purposely stay by the door just to show my how far I would back up ! Thank god for the long hallway though because I never really got pinned at the wall !

  • I can't stand it either, it makes me very uncomfortable. If they have bad breath, that's even worse.

  • In a loud bar I tend to be, but I feel really weird when I do it. But no one else around me seems to mind. But normal everyday, I'll say it's strange.

  • I do not hate it. But try to avoid those that do it.

  • I am very sensitive to most perfumes, so why is it people who keep stepping forward the more I step back, are the ones who reek? I had a visitor at my home, and had to tell them that I seemed to be allergic to their perfume. So the next day she told me she wasn't using any, but was still using the same scent lotion, or something, because I would still cough when she got near.
