Is it normal i like people who makes me mad?
Okay so I don't like people who annoy me but certain people I do like because they make me fired up.
I am usually very surpressed, afraid of confrontation, shy and can come off as quite innocent due to this. Therefore the friends that I have are very sweet and kind people whom i've never needed to have a single argument with. Many men I date think they need to be super careful with me, except the ones who's tried to manipulate me.
Thing is though i'm not actually all that nice, I just have anxiety, and i'm not afraid to set boundries even if I prefer to do it in text. I say no to people often and I don't care how they feel about it, I will never do anything i'm not comfortable with. If someone i'm dating tries to manipulate me I either turn his little game against him or just cut him off immadiately. It's starting to get fun because they always get so shocked and never expected it.
But I don't like to fight or argue so when I meet someone who's quite ironic (because my friends are such sweet people and they hardly ever use humor which isn't nice) and who dare to say anything they want to and around me without caring that I seem innocent I like them and actually respect them and if they say something that offends me I am not afraid to bicker with them because i'm not afraid to hurt the feelings of such people so I just be myself. Like when the honeymoon phase between me and my ex wore off and he stopped being so sweet all the time and we actually started to argue, i've never been more comfortable with someone. It was great. I didn't start the arguments though obviously due to anxiety, but he was the type of guy who would start arguments over nothing just for the sake of it sometimes but I didn't mind much.
Is this normal? I just like people who force me to be the bitch I never otherwise am sometimes.
