I think that I may have to stop bidding on eBay, i'm a very pressure sensitive guy, and frankly the excitment and suspense is too much for me to take, especially in the final moments of an auction. I've really just started doing this recently, before that I was only purchasing 'Buy it Now' items, which was cool. But I got bold one night a couple of weeks ago and decided to bid on a cd recorder during the last 3 hours of the auction. Starting was $44.00 so I bid another $40, during those last 3 hours I was still #1 when during the last 20 or so seconds somebody came in with $1.00 and beat me! And now, foolish male pride is threatening my wallet with another item i'm bidding on. I don't like to lose, I hate it in fact, it's a flaw in my personality, and right now i'm bidding a pretty penny on an item that's only worth $20.00 tops, because someone keeps outbidding me. If I lose this auction, or even if I win it, that's it, i'm done with bidding forever. It's not like a real auction where you can hear what the guy in the next row just bid and you just go up a little more, on eBay everythings invisible, you don't know what's going to happen and I can't handle it anymore. Who else feels this way? My friends have taught me how to bid and all that, but still its not worth it IMO.
