    Seriously this bothers me about myself.

    Like I sometimes want more friends, but I just can't make any. And I don't really like talking to people in person...it's frustrating

    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.

    I'm about to transfer into a big collage.

    I spent my first year at community collage to get my basics done with and to save money. I've lived in the same house for my entire life. I have difficulty meeting new people so I'm getting extremely nervous. This will be a completely new surrounding for me and I don't know what...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Seriously Antisocial

    I like being alone and doing things on my own. I guess I am so used to this lifestyle I am not even sure what activities are acceptable to be done alone etc. My problem is that I have so many friends from before when I was sociable. I really don't know why they stick around...

    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...

    When I was younger, around 13,

    I would always proudly spout, "I'm a misanthropist!" I was going through my "hate" phase; listening to heavy metal, covering myself up, and just being insecure and angry. Amazingly, I made my only friends (nearly all current) during this "misanthrope" stage in my life. Once in...

    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 typically started being antisocial around the

    age of 11, I'd started isolating myself from my friends and started to dread speaking in public. When I was 13, my mother noticed and she gave me probably the worst piece of advice any antisocial kid could receive; "if you never become social, you will never succeed." To me...

    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...

    and I didn't have someone I could talk to honestly, so I learned to live inside myself and not let anyone in. And that's why I dont like to talk to other people.

    To a point where I feel like the outcast 90% of the time. I have tried, but well... they are their own and respective person, and have unique situations that I can't seem to fathom because it's not happening to me, like university, a family/fiancee/ romantic partner, partying...
