    I am feeling like doing pretty much anything

    that involves being alone. I do not want to interact. I do not want to cooperate. I just want to skate. I don't want to struggle to understand their language. I just want to skate. Maybe I'll blow some steam off reffing tonight. It's probably not a good sign I feel exhausted...

    Never liked meeting new people

    or starting conversation with strangers or even people in school. It's been a problem since young and I can't seem to do anything to change it, I mean like I don't have the courage and confidence to just go up to someone and be like 'hey, how you're doing?' It just doesn't seem...

    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.

    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...

    Does anyone else find it kind of odd

    that are lives are all about socializing and "connecting" or whatever. I mean even going to school is more of a social experience than a learning experience. I personally think it makes ppl really bland when they conform to society out of fear for being judged socially. Meh...

    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...

    No Friends, No Enemies

    I am antisocial because when you don't let people in, you avoid letting people let you down. It's lonely, but not as lonely as when you try to connect with people who don't care. Fair weather friends are a dime a dozen, and even the best of friends are bound to move on and forget...

    Well I always was antisocial,

    it use to just be a mask but now its just me and I'm surprisingly 100% okay with that because I like being alone to tell you the truth. Basically everyone at my school is just society's ***** so they can gain popularity and have a life.
