    I can be very antisocial

    when my mood drops. I tend to just go into my cave then and stay there till I think things are getting better

    and solitude is good sometimes.

    Sometimes I feel like a wild animal.

    When I go outside I have to be on my guard. Everyone is a potential threat. I'm ready to do everything to survive. I scan everyone I encounter looking for signs of hostility. I look everyone I encounter straight in the eye to signalize my position and my readiness to defend it...

    When someone asks you repeatably whats wrong

    with you and then you feel like your climbing walls and feel like screaming and ruining away. But that would only feed them so they can drive you even more nuts.

    I get very anxious around big crowds of people.

    It takes a lot of energy for me to just pretend to smile like I'm fine and be nice while everyone is probably judging me and feeling sorry for me. I'd rather just not talk to people.

    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.

    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 don't really feel the need to go out and socialize with people...I'm perfectly happy staying at home and reading a good book :)

    I am a fake extrovert.

    I make friends very easily. I am very warm and inviting but I find it hard to keep them because of my antisocial tendency. There are times when I get overwhelmed by all these new people that step into my life even though I approached them first most likely. (Weird) It's just...

    Sometimes I just need quiet time,

    especially after a crazy day at work. Those who have lived with me accept that I'm not angry or pouting. After an hour or so I'm done decompressing and all is good.

    After moving from a Methodist church to a

    If ten random people were asked to describe me

    in one word, at least nine of them would say "quiet". I'm working on being okay with this. I'm an introvert. I like to be alone. It's true that I don't extensively talk in public especially to someone I've just met, but hearing that adjective in relation to me was never easy...

    I want to talk to someone,

    but it feels impossible for me at times. I just can't get along with people, and a lot of them who make an effort to talk to me, I can't stand. They aren't like minded or they have a lot in common with me but think differently.

    Yep. When my social retardation reaches a

    feverish pitch, I disappear into my "cave"... A very dark and lonesome place. To avoid pitfalls I have learned to be a more silent participant... Which in itself can be misinterpreted as being antisocial. I call it damage control.

    Partly anti-social, depending on the situation,

    but mostly just quiet. If in a group setting, small talk kills me. I just can't do it. So I tend to stay quiet and reserved. But engage me in a topic of discussion that I find interesting, and as long as I don't already judge you to be some kind of jackass, then I might just...

    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...

    Sometimes I have to push myself to answer the

    phone or accept an invitation to hang/go out with friends. Once I'm out I end up having a great time but it's the initial contact that makes me want to hide in my shell. Ugh I hate it. I wish I was naturally extroverted.

    I speak only to certain people I like.

    It's not because I don't know how to speak with people outside. I've got peoples skills. It's just that there are some of them who don't make sense at all.
