I Am Not Very Social

    I'm Popular, But I Can't Socialize With Popular People.

     I'm not exactly an introvert. But I'm really shy. Especially when I'm with really influential people. You know, the popular kids at school--not the stereotypical Disney popular-people, but real popular people? The ones who're the voice of the crowd, know what's going on...

    Drowning In Own Solitude

    I hate being alone, yet I do nothing about it. I don't have aproblem greeting people, but telling them a little bit about myself and my interests (funny because i got none and its really lame even for my age). Hell, I have no trouble making small talks about anything else but...

    GF Complaining

    GF complaining I am not very social and don't have much friends around me. Well, can't deny about it, I just don't know what to talk about or how to communicate with them. Not many people understand what is like being in military. Most think we are stupid.

    Can A Person Socialize Too Much?

    I dated a woman about six months ago who was very much an extrovert. She lives in a different city that I'm not very familiar with, so when we would hang out she had to pick the entertainment venues. One Saturday evening, she and I were trying to think of something to do, like...

    I never had a "true bestfriend.

    " I can never fit in, I cannot make any friends at school which makes me feel all lonely. I am very awkward when it comes to talking.

    Face In the Crowd

    Before I was married I was pretty social but now I'm not. I don't have much interest in other people these days, which is the opposite of my husband who is very social. We usually are with his family and friends when we go out and it makes me feel on an uneven footing. I have...

    I won't count how many friends I have in my

    circle.. cos I only have one (the administrator I guess).. I won't initiate chat with other people.. cos I can't think of any topic suitable.. I rarely answer random questions.. cos I don't know everything.. I don't add in an instant.. I know that they don't know me either...

    She Wasn't

    My mom was never the social type (while i was growning up/now). I see that alotta my "flaws and qwirks" that i have-she does too. So i blieve it stems from that. Another reason is because i never have anybody to go with. I've been sheltered all of my life, but once...

    Texting is easier for me haha

    but face to face I'm not good with. Anyone who approaches me I consider a threat unless they're declared safe. But even with that I ain't the social type. I hate talking to people sometimes, I need space at times you know? But being by my self too long is well..lonely. boring...

    Fear Of Getting People To Know Me

    I just cannot socialize with people, because when I talk, I reveal something of my self to others each time we speak. Sometime I lie to people just so they do not know me and feel guilty later. I find it hard because I also do not know how to talk most of them get bored because...

    It's true.. I very rarely leave the house

    unless I need to for work or to run an errand. I spend most of my time indoors on my computer, which sounds sad. But unfortunately I'm not a very outgoing person. I have more Internet friends than I do physical friends. And I find it much easier to meet people online than I do...

    I'm not extremely social.

    I like going out & having a drink with a friend every now & then..would go out more if I had friends that liked to go out at our age....and if we lived in a city. In this small town, there's not many places to go. But other than that, I'm good to stay at home or go by my mom...

    Never thought I would use this metoo thing

    because I've always be against social networks but for some odd reason, I'm liking this a bit. Maybe I didn't like social networks because it fosters an untrue identity or because I think too much about, well, everything. Either way, good to see that I'm not the only one and if...

    hey i am not social anymore either but maybe we have been drawn to the internal world so we can grow spiritually. Check out Ekharte Tolle's free audio book 'power of now' on youtube and you will see what I mean. I hope this helps everyone feel better :)

    Yoo-Hoo..anybody Out There?

     I am an alien. I'm sure of it. Not because I look weird (ok, that's at least what I think) and it's not because I don't know how to talk to people (well, sometimes it's a challenge), but it's because of what I've been through. You see, I spent almost 13 years in a...

    I'm Ok With It

    I don't have many friends. But I'm ok with that. Some people don't understand that I don't mind staying in the house alone all day. It soothes my soul. Who knows? Maybe one day I might step out, make some friends, go places, be normal as one might say. But for now I'm ok...
