    I Don't See A Thing Wrong With It!

    Yes I am proudly Anti social. It isn't that I can not be sociable when it is required. I can strike up a superficial conversation with most people. After all how else am I to weed out the people I have no interest in further contact. The funny thing is most people would...

    people. I haven't always been this way. Circumstances has caused this. But maybe it's for the best.

    I don't have any real friends.

    .. The only one that I can count on I can't really count on sometimes.. It's not her fault but everybody else treats me as a tag along. It gets incredibly lonely when you're the one sitting in a corner of a room all by yourself and everybody else ignores you or doesn't care...

    As a kid I craved popularity.

    Most of us did. Now, I kinda just want people to go away. I don't use social media. I don't pop open my laptop to see who said what about who or what. I don't care. I don't actually even own a laptop. I see what's in front of me. I deal with those who are around me...

    A lot of people think there's something wrong

    with me. I gave up making friends and socializing since it's one of the worst things I can do. I can even be antisocial with my family since no one ever talks to me.

    But am now. More & more I tend to not want to have visitors or go out to crowded events. Part of it is caution and part of it just a general dislike of others. I'm cautious to hold down my own, there's wolves out there. Not that I have much. I'm poor as hell. I've just been...

    I wasn't always anti-social.

    As a young kid, I talked to everyone and always had a group of friends that I spent the entire day with. When I moved as a teen, I lost touch with all of my friends and was thrown into a school where everyone around me seemed so fake, coming from the area I came from beforehand...

    It's Not That I'm Anti-social, I Just Don't Like Most People, And Enjoy Being On My Own

    The masses might see me as anti-social. I don't really give a ****. What I want to say to people who get offended by my not being superficial is: there are plenty of people to be friends with, if I'm leaving you alone it's because I don't like you/ feel we are not connecting...

    I'm like the earth. I look perfect. But inside I'm dying slowly, painfully. I want to kill everyone. People will always hate. People will always love. People will be people. And that leads to broken hearts. You'd think with current technology we would've invented a cure...

    I like being alone. Being around other people

    drains me and gives me headaches! When I do get in the mood to socialize, I need a drink to open up and enjoy myself. Then I usually drink to much and embarrass myself.

    Talking to people just feels like a lot of work

    sometimes. Even just replying to text messages can irritate me. It's not that I don't ever crave human interaction because I do. I guess the thing is that I want it on my own schedule. And I want to be left alone most of the time. For some reason, I feel kind of wrong for...
