I Am Sometimes Antisocial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 62,851 People

    Today was my birthday.

    I went out with a few friends like I do every Thursday, to an event. After, we usually go to Starbucks and linger like teenagers do. Tonight though, I just didn't feel up to it. I enjoy the company of my friends, but I just... I dunno. I biked home, hopped on the computer and...

    I feel lonely but avoid social events.

    I always complain that I'm lonely but when I get invited to events I either say no or go and leave early. I much prefer staying at home with my boyfriend. Anyone else like this?

    80% of my free time is spent in my room

    snuggled up with my food, and watching Netflix :-) I live with no regrets

    Most of the time, I enjoy my own company over

    any one else's and there's nothing wrong with that. At the end of the day, we ultimately only have our own selves.

    I had a person asking me

    why I'm not talking with one particular person from my circle. I have found myself asking the same question quite often recently. I always seem to feel some short of wall surrounding me when it comes to talking with people who I like or admire. I believe that happens to many...

    or let me know if I'm just an a-hole co-worker? I work in an office with an average of 7 people at a time. when it's time for lunch I like to go get my own food, alone. when I do that, people give me the cold shoulder the rest of the day because I didn't take their order. on...

    I Am Always Antisocial Its not

    because i am socially awkward or anything, in fact if I didn't think so low of myself, I'm sure Id pick back up my knack for making friends. I always used to make friends very easily when I was a child, I was much more outgoing and confidant back then. My personality can thrive...

    so oppressive. Last night, I finally got to where I could now the lawn. Then realized 9 pm. My neighbors might not appreciate that. Today, mowing the lawn to drown out all the happy sounds from people celebrating Father's Day.

    The reason I'm antisocial is

    because I don't really trust people. I mean, most of my friends have hurt me one way or the other, so I just keep to myself. No way to hurt me, if there is no one to hurt me.

    I don't think I'm actually anti social.

    Peeps just take my distance as being uninterested. I love talking to people.. I enjoy new friends. But don't expect me to call you a friend quickly. For me, it comes in stages. Like any relationship. I'm weird, quirky.. Whatever you wanna call it. My aloofness is a way to...

    Yeah, a little more than sometimes.

    I can't people! But seriously, my friends are so natural at it, and I get upset because I can't relate or contribute in any way with conversation. I feel like there's no reason for me to be around people if I can't interact with them like a normal human being.

    Honestly, the reason

    why i am so antisocial is because people are no longer interesting. There are no more meaningful conversations. Instead, everyone talks about whats new on Twitter, on Instagram, or this viral video about something insanely immature on Facebook. Is that all there is to talk about...

    I get really antisocial during the summer,

    I wish I didn't but it's just something that started to happen once I started to get into gaming and anime. I mean I wouldn't blame on that, it's just that I also became really lazy and started to get more involve into my own little world. I guess once I started to realize I was...

    Socializing isn't my thing.

    I can't talk to people without stuttering. I can't look people in the eye if they are talking to me. I always look down when someone talks to me. I just get nervous around people. Being around people, I just stand in the back, avoiding talking to anyone.

    I love going to Dallas by myself.

    Staying in a hotel by myself. Shopping by myself. Eating by myself. Sleeping by myself. I believe if you can't enjoy the company of yourself, you won't truly enjoy the company of others. Honestly, if you can't stand being alone with your thoughts, why would anyone else want...

    Call it being antisocial,

    call it social anxiety. Either way being alone is best <3
