    I Am...

    ...not social. I always hated any kind of party we had at school because I was always the odd one out. Just sitting by myself, looking at others having fun and praying it would be over soon.

    Un-Social

    I am not a social being. I am a very un-social being. I don't like groups, or parties, or crowds, or gatherings, or "chit-chatting" to others, or small talk, or anything similar. I like being alone. It's the only time I feel comfortable. But I am not ANTI-social. I am UN-social...
