    I Should Be Having Fun, But I Feel Lost

    Anti Social

    I really need to stop being anti social. I hate being so shy around people and if someone asks me to hang out, I’ll either say no or make up a phony excuse. I haven’t made any friends at my work and even if I tried, I’m afraid to ask them to hang out with me. First of all...

    I'm not sure to  what extent..In my real world circle, I can be quiet ,low volume and don't seek attention from anyone.  When approached, I handle conversing fine. I keep chatter short but still friendly.My class door is closed at all times so people know I'm...

    I can talk to people over text all day long.

    But in person and sometimes over the phone. I make things awkward for many people. I want friends but I don't know how to make them. I want to find love but I don't know where to start. I can't talk to people. I can't make the first move. I'm a mess.

    I always feel shy and awkward around people.

    I can tell myself is an introvert person. Rather than going out meeting people, i prefer stay in my house and spend time alone. I am an anti-social person. I like observing people but don't want to involve with them. Even people that i know, when i rarely or haven't met them for...

    Sometimes those who don't socialize much aren't actually anti-social, They just have no tolerance for drama and fake people.
