Are kids and animals drawn to you?

Ever since I can remember, animals and kids love me. I could be walking through the store and a random kid will run up to me and hug me or start talking to me. If I am outside walking around, random pets want to come up and say hi. Do I just have a kind vibe that they like? It's all kinda interesting to me. I mean, I like kids and pets, but I don't go out of my way to be like "Oooh cute kid!" Or "Hey doggy! Let me pet you!" I prefer to just mind my own business. Plus, I am a germaphobic. Coming in contact with anything randomly isn't my thing. *Aaahhh! Where's my germ-x???" Is what goes through my head.

    So much so that it gets creepy. It's all the more strange given the yin/yang battles which rage in my psyche on a nearly daily basis!

    The raging yin/yang psyche battles sound kinda creepy in that context . . .

    Everybody's got monsters. Few people are brave enough to admit it.

    In fact, sometimes I think it's the people that deny their dark sides who end up being mass murderers (or politicians/CEO's :-)).

    It's the quiet ones we should all be worried about :)

    Sounds like we should round up all the shy people and put 'em in camps. :-)

    In some cases, I think outreach/acclimation programs are good enough. I used to be shy, and now look at me. ;)

    That's fine. I am partial to my dagger anyway. It has a double-sided blade, perfect grip, and great balance.

    They truly see my heart and think "this is a good person". To me, that's why I think they react that way. And some kids even tell me hello. of course I say hello back to them added with a warm smile.

    I like it, actually, especially when I go to my friend's house and both her pets sit by me or when I go to my aunt's house and both my cousins want to sit with me :)

    I think I have the mom vibe and I've had it since I was about 12. Younger kids always wanted my help and now it's common for kids to just come up to me and start talking away.

    Dogs that don't like anyone, like me. (can't say I like dogs though.. I'm a cat person but i can put up with dogs if i have to.) most cats will come but not all.

    It's died down with age for some reason but it still happens.

    Children smile and wave or call hello to me, even here in America. Cats like me, fish will swim to the glass 2 look at me.. but dogs hate me. They growl at me, they bark at me, if they are big then they will chase and bite me if they can. i have been taken to the hospital a total of 8 times now in USA for dog attack and i have lived here since 2007.

    Dogs hate me, i do not know why. They scare me so much and i will avoid them if i can.

    It's strange. Plus, all my friends' babies always seem to smile right off the bat when they see me, and I'm usually the only one who can make them laugh right away as well. I don't know why? Animals always warm up to me right away too haha. I guess babies and animals can sense good people.

    Once I had a little girl about 2 run up to me in a store and yell HI....her mother was in hot pursuit...and as she wrangled her daughter and we looked up at each other, we both realized we were long lost friends, who had not seen each other in 10 years!
    So cool! We talk frequently now!

    yes, alot. I think they sense who is safe. I was visiting a couple one time who had rescued a feral cat that was living in the forest and she stayed in their basement and once in awhile ventured out into the house but no one could touch her. And while I was sitting in a chair she jumped up, curled up in my lap and went to sleep.

    Especially dogs. People warn me they have a "mean" dog, and then they come up to me and are always very sweet and loving.
