It’s normal when….
Because of a past relationship with your mother, you have intimacy issues and can’t “get close” with someone.

But it’s a little strange when…
You’re 40 years old and haven’t been able to “get close” with anyone, so you go to a shrink.

And downright bizarre when….
You leave all your shrinks because they are getting “too close!”

It’s normal when….
You think everyone has a cooler haircut than you do.

But a little strange when…
You drop $200 at a salon and think you’ll instantly be cooler.

And downright bizarre when…
They give you the latest style, which happens to be the “Hitler youth” cut!

It’s normal when….
You like Facebook and check it now and then.

But a little strange when…
You like Facebook so much that you check it obsessively – like over 500 times a day.

And downright bizarre when…
You like Facebook so much that you bought a bunch of their crappy, overvalued stock!

It’s normal when….
Your boss doesn’t say “good morning” to you every day.

But a little strange when…
This makes you extremely paniked that he/she wants to fire you.

And downright bizarre when…
Your performance goes down because of your paranoia, so your boss fires you!



It’s normal when….

You hit on a girl because you think she’s cute.

But a little strange when…
You find out she’s a nutritionist, so instead of asking her out like a man you make an appointment with her.

And downright bizarre when…
When you have your appointment, you are forced to talk at length about the “quality” of your bowel movements!



It’s normal when…
You like a good show, like Mad Men.

But a little strange when…
You get depressed when the season ends, because it won’t come back for another year and you don’t have a whole lot else going on.

And downright bizarre when…
You get so depressed that you hang yourself in your office, like Lane did in episode 12!

It’s normal when…
You want to find “the one”, so you join an online dating site.

But a little strange when…
Because there are so many people, you get really picky and can’t stop dating.

And downright bizarre when…
You get so obsessed that you start your own dating website, specifically for you!
