Some people also discover that the creep factor is not a big deal. A lot of it is just fear of the unknown. But no matter what you do, you're going to creep some people out.

There's something to be said for not steamrolling over people with what you think are your idiosyncracies. When people do that (and I think exhibitionists in particular frequently do this online), that appears to be all they are about, and that makes them appear a more shallow, and thus less interesting, person. Maybe that's just me, though.

Or is that not what you meant?

The thrust is that those idiosyncracies tend to pop up at very unexpected times for people, usually when they're off-guard with me. It's not that I want them to be on-guard; I'd rather that they know and expect I may act differently - and thus when I hit something that may hit the oogie button, they don't flinch and withdraw (and in consequence, make me freak out) but instead see it for what it is.
