I Am Sometimes Antisocial

    I'm antisocial pretty much all the time.

    I'm homeschooled I don't leave the house for days or even weeks on end. I had two close friends but Iv stopped talking to them. Plus the reason I'm homeschooled is because of some "emotional" issues I have. There going to put me in a therapeutic school. I suppose I'll be forced...

    Lately I have been very antisocial.

    I used to go out and hang out with friends but as time went on that slowly started changing. Now I sometimes tend to use excuses so I don't have to go outside, like saying I'm not home, busy with things, or feeling sick. As of now, I only hang out with one friend and some of my...

    Okay, so less sometimes

    and more all the time. I leave my house as little as possible. Of course that's probably because my stomach knots up just walking to the end of my driveway to check the mail. I find it very difficult to be around people that I don't know. My therapist called it Social Anxiety...

    Well for the most part I am antisocial.

    I love my life, I love my partner. I love going out with my partner, but aside from my friends 'online', I don't have 1. other person. I have people I am friendly with, but none I would even go for a drink with. My partner is the same, for her its shyness and for me its...

    I'm an extremely extroverted person.

    I love making friends and meeting new people. I often am asked to join people when going out to the bars, etc. I have no interest most of the time. Although I seem like a 'people person', I would much rather be snuggled up in my bed watching Netflix.

    Sometimes* is not the suitable term

    for me. I am very anti social almost all the time - I don't know the exact reason for it however. You see, I've been like this as long as I can remember. My family sees this anti social behaviour of mine and they get quite angry at me - they think I'm purposely being rude or...

    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 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...

    I'm quite fickle when it comes to friendships

    as I normally drift from most people, I like to keep things fresh but I hate getting too close to someone as it never ends well!!

    Just because someone is quiet doesn't mean they

    don't want to talk to you. Sometimes we just don't know how. Sometimes were the most loving people so don't judge a book by its cover! :)

    I have amazing friends

    who I love dearly. When I'm down, they ask me to confide in them and then advise me to stop whining. I understand they are trying to make me stronger, but I haven't let anything out to anyone for way too long! Only because I don't want to be the whiner! I'm tired of people and...

    I'm not good at making friends. Me being antisocial is even true when I'm at home with my family. Well one of my friends told me that I need to be more social especially because I'm a junior in high school. Well I'm starting to be social a home and I realized why I'm not social...

    I was always the most Introverted person you

    could know. Or not know. I never let anyone inside. I was always very quiet, always listening even when people thought no one was paying attention. Some people thought I must have ESP because I seemed to know things. I think I've just been very empathic and have a good...

    I am sometimes anti-social

    but I don't want to be. I don't even realize I am doing it sometimes. I am uncomfortable in many social situations, so I do tend to avoid them when I really shouldn't. It's not because I don't like people as a whole. I do generally like to socialize, I just often feel like an...

    When I walk past people I am indecisive about

    whether I should make eye contact or not and it gets kind of awkward.. Like I might smile at them as they look away from me and I am glad they are not looking at me.. I am so damn creepy..

    I look forward to getting unplugged on

    Sundays: Lock the gates. Lock the main door. Unplug door bell. Turn off cell phones. Unplug telephone line. No television. Dogs into the kennels. Just pure solitude.

    How couldn't I be Antisocial?

    Let's be honest - the world is fill of dumb f*cks. I met so many people in my life, so many 'successfull' people - but seriously, I cant believe how they are even able to stay alive. This probably sounds weird, but as soon as I talk or just watch a person for a few minutes I'm...

    aren't actually antisocial, they just have no tolerance for drama and fake people. 🙈
