    I'm Don't Know How to Talk to People.

    I'm very brief and to the point. I think it frustrates people because they think I'm unfriendly. Nothing could be further from the truth. I just don't find myself that interesting. I love listening to other people, but when the discussion turns to me, I freeze and never...

    Asperger's?

    I've read up on asperger's syndrome. Seems like I would have it, with the social awkwardness and all. My parents were gonna have me tested, but they backed out. My parents are very antisocial and shy as well; no wonder I have no social skills. :/

    Awkward

    A lot of the time I run out of things to say during conversations with people. I hate when this happens it's so awkward. My mind just goes completely blank and can't think after a little while. I wonder if the people that I speak to have the same problem or is it just me. I wish...

    When I'm Just Getting To Know Someone
