    Sometimes I just love being alone.

    I feel relax and peace. :)

    I admit it. Sometimes I ditch people.

    I disappear. Or if I see someone at a store or some place, I'll ditch them.

    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 have always been a shy n silent person,

    it's not that I don't like people. I do talk a lot but only with certain people I acquired as friends. I don't have many friends, especially in uni. I am the only person from my school to enter here, coming from a public school made it quite hard for me to fit in, not only most...

    I have gotten over wanting to fit in

    and be with the cool kids and blah, I've gotten over our society and how a lot of things are f*cked up now days. It's gotten to the point where I can only tolerate so little people and decided that I like it better indoors and online where I don't have to face reality, and where...

    and shaky around people I act like I don't care to be alone but I'm terrified of living and dying alone. I don't have anyone to speak to but myself...I feel like I'm too weird and people just don't care for my existence. I would just like someone to talk to just so the thought...

    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'm not antisocial by choice,

    I feel like I'm on the outside looking in. It's been that way as far back as I can remember. I really enjoy interacting with people....until the mood shifts and I feel like I've said too much. Then I regret opening up and vow to hold back excess information and emotions. Me...

    I'm crazy and fun with my friends

    but I'm surrounded by new people I have never met and am scared of saying the wrong thing and I just close up inside of my own shell. I'm that girl who loves being by herself and not always with her friends. Not a lot of people understand that and they take me as a loner until...

    Just so we're clear, the term antisocial has

    NOTHING to do with a persons ability to socialize and is not used to describe those who are shy, inhibited, reclusive, or withdrawn. Rather, it implies a rebellion against society, a denial of the obligations that tie individuals to one another. Most of you are obviously...

    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.

    Eye contact can sometimes be real awkward.

    There's so much politics behind it.

    I am more of a selective antisocial,

    I can be really fun, talkative and funny with people I really enjoyed with, but for the others I feel so exhausted and fake when I try to talk and be nice.

    I just got back from my weekly badminton social.

    I think the fact I don't meet many new people

    who I find interesting and can have good conversations with is a contributor to my lack of interest socially sometimes. My interests aren't exactly left-field but I can't seem to connect with people regardless. But then again, I've given up on adapting for the sake of it as it's...

    Not even sure where to start with this.

    .. I guess I'm antisocial around mostly people I don't know. I get defensive and just assume they mean to do harm. Other times I'll be around people I know, but am not entirely friends with. These are people I know don't mean harm in any way. I grew up with them and I know them...
