    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.

    Didn'T Before

    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...

    or going out. I'm ok with this but just wish everyone else could accept it's the way I am. I stay away from making new friends cos I don't want the hassle of declining socialising at party's and clubs etc. if a friend comes round I'm just thinking when will they go! I just want...

    I am antisocial and I don't really have friends

    at school or anything. I sit with one person at lunch, but he usually just sits there to eat and we don't speak much. Most of the time, I hide my face behind novels I'm currently reading. I don't mind speaking if someone starts first, but I can never go up to someone and start...

    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...

    I cannot talk to anyone

    unless they start talking to me. I can't just walk up to a stranger, introduce myself and start up a conversation. I'm scared of rejection. When I was in 1st grade, I switched schools... And that was hell for me. I did not know anyone at the time. It was my birthday and I...

    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...

    Sigh

    To start off, i'm not social in the least. I'm scared stiff of making contact with people. I have no ability to start off and conversations that i actually venture into end off in an awkward silence. I'm fine if other people approach me and talk, i reply but i cannot...

    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...

    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...

    Solitude

    I enjoy being alone, so much so that my almost constant need for solitude confuses others. I don't know how to explain it to them, other than that I find the company of others to be exhausting. Last night in my latest studio art class, I was forced to put up with a pair of...

    Being anti-social is defined

    as seeing the feelings of others as irrelevant. Most people confuse being loners, or fearful of crowds with being anti-social. Dumbasses

    Antisocial does NOT mean shy.

    It's actually a pervasive pattern of criminal activity, amoral and selfish sensation seeking. Get it right people. Most of you guys are shy or introverted (-_-"). The stupidity is appalling.
