If you were able to meet your old self would you? How would you react? Would you be shocked due to being such a different person today physically, mentally, and ideologically? Would you be indifferent? Somewhere in between?

It doesn't really matter, it's a pretty general question. It might be easier for the older crowd to answer though.

As for me, I think I'd be pretty shocked at my old self considering I have shifted so much ideologically. For one, I was a communist when I was about 16.

I think i have definitely changed alot. I don't think I would have ever imagined myself going to college, having a job, or an apartment, or even a loving girlfriend to sleep with every night. I am glad things turned out the way they have in my life though.

Yes.

How would you react?

Myself in the past? I would probably be extremely curious and have a lot of questions.

I would be shocked. I think I've done a complete 180 physically, mentally, and ideologically, especially since high school. Even just a couple years ago.

I would enjoy seeing myself as a small child, that would be interesting. But until pretty recently, I was little more than a massive bigot and a loser so I would have no interest in revisiting those times..

Of course I would meet him. I'd tell him all the mistakes, regrets, and missed opportunities he can expect in the coming years. I'd then watch my current self slowly disappear, a la Back to the Future 2, as my timeline erases from existence.

I might, but I do not like revisiting my past self since I now view myself as overly prideful and pretentious in those days. I would be curious to see how I was like as a little child since most of my memories of my infancy--and early adolescence have faded and dissipated. And as for my reaction?--perhaps surprise at how different we are, perhaps. Some elements may be unchanged--such as passion for medicine, since I remember talking about being a doctor and promising to my mother that I would be one.

Oh, and by the way, thanks for a good topic for my personal essay due this Wednesday.:)

If you have sex with your past self, is it considered gay sex(possible incest?), or masturbation?

I came back because of a misunderstanding in the thread I created about jim. I stayed because I had a bunch of pm's to respond to... I think I've responded to the last one so I may not be back.

Don't wanna be depressing but it's been running through my mind for a while. Ages 11-14, if I met myself I would be like that song by pink "conversations with my 13 year old self", but odds are, based on the title and amount of people that relate to it on those videos, that that's a rather common response.

It's really sad cause I know that I shouldn't have been so depressed during that time because I was so close to being happy and finding what I needed to find, but also so very close to giving up to suicide.

However, if I could meet the 5 year old me I would be shocked at how extremely different I was, and tell myself to never turn bitter in the first place and to never stop smiling and laughing. Never stop being myself, and never let the darkness rule my life. To always believe in the best of people and to never turn out the way I have so far.

(okay so I'm just depressing atm, sorry)
