Weird question xD but yeah.

Sometimes when I look in a mirror on random occasions (to see if I was bleeding, or something like that, so I'm not just talking normal every day occasions as they are just normal to me) it can be a bit freaky at times, especially at night. Why is that?

It seems the closer you get to the mirror, the stranger it feels... especially if you are looking in to your own eyes.

I'm sure I've seen something before that said if you look at your reflection in a dimly lit room, your face gets distorted and frightens the crap out of you.

I have before walked past a mirror and swore I saw someone else looking back at me, which scared me shitless. That thing explains it though, so at least I know I'm not going to die

Hah, yeah. Well, I've done it with people in that way before. When bored and messing about, I've done this and the other persons face starts to change. I have seen weird things like skulls, werewolfs etc. xD

EDIT: I don't mean in a mirror, I mean physically looking at somebodys face.

Only one time, I think. I was reading this thing posted in the nightmare thread about how if you stare into a mirror in a dimly lit room long enough... your reflection will distort into images of dead family members. So I was like, fuck, I'ma try that.

But I chickened out before I saw anything. >_>

Sometimes when I'm having a bad day I will not be able to look into a mirror at all because I would despise what I saw. It sometimes really freaks me out how strong the feeling is. It's as if it were another person.

Yea, this is weird.... When I was like 4 (perfect scar-for-life age), i had a dream that satan was trying to kill me and i was running through this old abandoned building. At some point I was hiding in an old dirty bathroom (those kind u see on scary movies where everything is white tiles with rust stains everywhere) and i was curled up behind the sink away from the door. Then I hear footsteps. i turned and looked in the mirror and satan was standing right in the mirror staring at me. i turned around and he wasnt behind me. he was literally IN the mirror! i couldnt look at my reflection for like almost a year because I thought satan could see me through it...

Glad i got that off my chest...

my reflection often scares the shit out of me. like I will think im home alone and be walking down the hall and see my reflection move in the corner of my eye and think that someone has broken in.

I can't look at myself in the mirror for too long. It always freaks me out.

I always imagine something running at the back of the room in the mirror...like quickly darting across the field of vision.

No it's just a mirror. I don't see how it could freak anyone out.

When I'm a bit paranoid after having a nightmare, I don't really want to look in the mirror when I enter the bathroom. Somehow I always expect to see something else pop up behind my lovely face.

After reading all of the comments in that link, you seriously just made me develop a phobia of mirrors. I just went into my bathroom to brush my hair and noticed I walked very slowly in front of the mirror, not actually wanting to look like I normally do. And then I gave in and stared at my face for about 5 seconds before feeling uncomfortable and leaving.

EDIT: Just did it again. After about 20 seconds my eyes in the reflection went blurry. Figured I was just starting to go cross eyed. But then boom, in a matter of two seconds blackness spread from my eyes across my entire entire face. Not doing that again.

When I'm in a restaurant and there is a mirror wall. It always ****s me up when I realize it's a miorror and not an expansion of the room. My whole conception of my environment just changes in less than a second and it freaks me out everytime. I know I'm weird.
#32
Not really freaked out, but when I first shaved, I would laugh a bit at how funny I looked like every time I went past a mirror.

Reminds me of this (skip to 2:49) of Beyond Belief: Fact of Fiction (who else loved that show?). For those who don't want to click, basically it's a reenactment of an apparently true story where a woman repeatedly sees a monster-esque woman in one of her hallway mirrors. One night, someone breaks into her house and the burglar grapples her in the hallway near the mirror. The burglar then looks into the mirror in the process, sees the monstrous figure, gets frightened, and runs out of the house.

I've heard this lots of times before and the idea freaks me out. I'll try it one day when I grow the balls
