I think this is an interesting topic. How are you misunderstood? What is an impression people sometimes get of you that you don't think is the real you? I know this isn't really a "woman's issue" but I prefer posting here because there's a more even gender balance. I'll start. I think people sometimes think I'm colder than I really am. I try to be direct about what I want and sometimes people think I come across bitchy, but people who know me know I just think I deserve to be direct about my desires. I guess that falls into the category of direct women being thought of as a bitch. OK. Your turn. How are you misunderstood?
