    I Don't Like Conversation!

    I know it sounds extreme, but sometimes I just cant be bothered making the effort to keep my jaws moving in inane conversation about things that dont really matter to me. Just for the privilege of being described as "easy to talk to" or "sociable" "cool" or whatever. Work is...

    People Vs Loneliness.

    Ive always been the girl that rather be alone then be in a big group of people. Every since 10th grade (16yrs) I got use to being alone. No one really came up and hang out with me like i even wanted to. I was so sucked in my book and listening to my music to care who would be...

    I am not a people person,

    I'm not confident talking to people and socialising so I would like to work with animals as a career because I love animals and want to help them, work with them, cure them etc. problem is that I'm allergic to most animal fur and hay -.-

    I'm one of the most antisocial people I know.

    I can talk for about an hour with people I like but then I gotta go off and do my own thing. When it comes to people I don't know, I want to figure out a way to get them to go away without being rude. Anytime I'm walking for relaxation and I see someone headed towards me, I...

    Don't waste your breath,

    or energy typing unless I initiate a conversation, or show interest. Very few are worthy enough to awaken and those few are my allies.

    When someone tells me something personal I have

    no idea what to do. Do I try to relate to them or do I give them a hug, it is so confusing. I am much better at pretending I dont care about anything.

    It's very rare that I venture out of my small

    circle socially. I even find it difficult to talk with my co-workers about much outside of work, for what it's worth. On one hand, I guess it's not such a bad thing because it keeps me from the disappointment and self-centered users that many "people people" have had to...

    More Intrapersonal Then Interpersonal

    I Dont know why but I have always enjoyed spending time alone. Other people annoy me a lot of the time either by talking about things I just dont care about or being stupid. Ive never been one to have tons of friends my group is normally around 10 or less I think

    I am so strange compared to most people. I don't go to parties like kids my age do. I don't socialize outside the internet. I have maybe one friend outside this site. Most kids my age have a ton of friends out side this site. I feel uncomfortable around other people...

    I have a hard time connecting with people.

    They say, "be yourself" what a load of bull. No one likes you for you, they like you if you adjust yourself to their needs. I don't like conditions. But I must accept, I'm not a people person. I'm not a bad looking bloke, maybe I'm too serious, or too immature, but I love...

    While I don't have a problem holding a

    conversation or getting along with people, I have very few friends and don't socialize much. Maybe its because I have high anxiety and don't do drugs or alcohol or something but I like people, sometimes people like me, most times they just ignore me =D

    Antisocial!

    Haha I'm so antisocial. I was at the library - just tryin' to read a damn book - and this kid kept trying to make conversation. Finally, I said "There are lots of girls who would love to talk to you. They can be reached at 999 numbers and it only cost .99 cents a minute. Go...

    Never Satisfied

    whenever I'm alone I want to be with people. When I finally am around them, I definitely want to be alone. I guess the experience of being with friends seems more enjoyable than it really is?

    Work with the public

    and you will quickly not be a people person. I am a friendly person but people get on my nerves very quickly. I have a small circle of friends I hang out with sometimes and that is enough.
