11 Things you'll only get if you're a chronic over-sharer

In this age of social media, it's kinda hard not to be an over-sharer. But still, that doesn't mean some people won't try. For all those people who've never dealt with a piece of information too personal to share or wondered, 'is this too much?' here are 11 things you'll only get if you're a chronic over-sharer.

1. No one ever has to ask how you're doing.

You don't need a prompt to start word-vomiting about your day, you'll just start talking the second you sense another person in the room. It's like echolocation but for an audience. You're like a YouTube vlogger who draws someone in with clickbait about a a hair tutorial and then spends nine minutes out of a 14 minute video explaining where you've been and what you've been up to when no one asked.

2. People literally think you died if you don't post on social media for a day.

You're usually so on-it with your 480-second long Snapchat stories that when you go AWOL for a day, it's very noticeable.

3. When you do choose to keep stuff quiet or private, it's like, the BIGGEST DEAL IN THE WORLD.

Your friends know everything from the exact number of times you texted your ex before to the regularity of your period cycle, so when you do choose to plead the fifth, they know something's really up.

Oops! So that's how you know my blood type and social security number. Totally forgot I Snapchatted about those things but tbh seems like something I'd do.

5. Sometimes you feel self-obsessed when you think about how your friends know so much more about your life than you do about theirs.

Not your fault if they choose not to tell you about every single text their crush sent them and you do.

6. Surprisingly, you're pretty good about not prying into your friends' lives.

You assume if people aren't shouting it from the rooftops, they don't want to talk about it.

7. You don't understand the concept of TMI when you're calling out sick.

It's totally cool to tell your boss that you can't come into work because you're shitting your brains out with food poisoning right? I mean, who knows what kind of excuse she'd accept and you don't wanna sound like you're just playing hooky right? I've literally thought about attaching a .jpg of my thermometer to an email as feverish proof when I was explaining to a professor why I wouldn't be able to make it to class.

8. You have zero cards to play when it comes to playing it cool in a new relationship.

I literally walk into first dates like, "so you ever been in love?" while taking my coat off. You don't have any time to waste! Why play?

9. You truly cannot fathom having a secret affair or cheating on someone.

Whether your loyalty is a product of your lack of boundaries or you're just a Good Person, there's pretty much no way in hell you'd be able to sneak around someone's back without outing yourself.

10. You make friends pretty fast.

Where it might take some a weekend road trip with to unearth some deep hidden emotional trauma, all you need is an introduction at a party and one mutual Facebook friend to start unloading your entire life story to someone.

11. You're very much a "what you see is what you get" person.

You don't have time to self-censor and filter your personality into a heavily edited persona. You're just like, "Welp, here's all my baggage!! If you can't deal, I'll literally just unload it onto people over and over again until someone's into it. No biggie."
