@emilygrace07:  Yes!  I actually did it too to see if that’s what I do!  It’s similar.  I sort of bend my ring finger and use my pointer to pull against the nail then do the same with the pinky and middle finger.. lol! 

My husband recently noticed it so now he knows when I’m feeling a little anxious or nervous.

I have a really weird way of picking at my lips… which makes my lips constanly rough. I try to stop, because I’d really like to wear lipstick at my wedding but the picking makes them look too flaky with anything other than lip balm or gloss… ugh… I hate it!

@emilygrace07:  lol…and it’s usually just my left hand, although when I’m REALLY anxious, I’ll use my right too.. Eventually my fingers just start to ache!

I’m really not a nervous person…but in my daily life there’s a lot of weird little things I do, that I didn’t know were weird until I got married and lived with another person….

1.  Don’t touch my belly button, it feels like I’m turning inside out.

2.  I like to lay upside down on the couch in the morning….with my feet on the window behind it and my head on the floor…it feels good.

3.  I hate breakfast…do not make me eat it, ever.

4.  Eggs smell like your eating rotten food to me, don’t cook them in my house, you want eggs?  Go out to eat.

5.  Every animal I’ve ever owned gets SUPER attached to me, so I am really used to having a little herd of them following me around the house, being around me when I do laundry, under my feet when I cook and next to the bed when I sleep… do not, I repeat, do not insert yourself into our path…it’s an intricate ballet of movement, your presence will bring it all crashing down.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who picks at the skin around their fingers.  I constantly get crap from people for it but I don’t even realize I’m doing it until i see blood sometimes. ๐Ÿ™

Depends on what I’m nervous about.  If I have to talk to a really good looking guy I will bite my lower lip or my pinky fingernail.  I have no idea why and I’ve tried to even stop but I think its because its I’m afraid of saying something stupid and embarassing myself lol.  I worked with a really cute Orthopedic doctor for a while once and my poor lower lip was so chapped. When I first started dating my Fiance, my lower lip was really chapped all the time too.  Even now 3 years after being together, living together etc I will still occassionally bite my lower lip around him.

I also bounce my legs.  I will bite my fingers, the pads of my thumb or the side of my first finger or pinky.  I will also twirl my hair.  If I’m really nervous I do all of the above and probably look like I’m on Crack lol.

@emilygrace07:  I do this too lol.  I just don’t pay attention usually when I do it. 

I also forgot to mention I’ll run my tongue over all my teeth one at a time and count them…as if one fell out without my knowledge or something.  I don’t know maybe its OCD lol.

When I’m in big/important meetings I tend to clench my tummy (soooo weird I know) and everyone always thinks I have the hiccups ๐Ÿ™  I have gotten better at it, but actively thinking about not doing it just makes me do it more!!

Also when I’m unhappy I’ll start scratching at my face or my hair which is pretty messed up too.

Argh I’m so weird!!

I chew on my lips like crazy! It’s no good. I also play with my engagement and RH rings incessantly, spinning them, taking them on and off, making sure they’re on perfectly straight. I would suck at poker, lol.

I bite my nails too. Then if I get a hangnail I have to rip it out and my fingers bleed ๐Ÿ™ Fiance hates it and will push my hand away from my mouth whenever he catches me at it. I don’t know why I do it, it’s a habit I’ve had forever. I also bite my lips until they’re bleeding. My lips and fingers are a mess, I need to get a handle on this before our engagement pics in May!

I twirl my hair, too. I had a teacher who hated my hair-twirling so much that if I started doing it in her class she would stop whatever she was doing – even if she was in the middle of a lecture – and just stare at me until I realized what I was doing and stopped. It was so embarrassing.
