    I sometimes have a hard time having empathy

    for the people who say they wish they had someone to talk to. I hate having to hold a conversation. I see it as a burden. So when people say they wish they had someone to talk to I just say they don't need someone to talk to... Is that bad advice? I don't know it kind of...

    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...

    There are times insular

    and quiet,When you wrap up in psychic cotton wool,Times for pondering and pirate,When you often feel a fool.There are times you rebel and shout,When you dress a certain way and tease,Times for dancing and going out,When you often feel others ill at ease.

    I just don't "feel" the way other people seem

    to. I can feel things but I'd rather not. If I do, it's often not the way other people would feel in a similar situation or I will feel it for different reasons than most.

    Yeah, I hate celebrating with my families

    because I'm Introverted and they all ignore me. My parents are gonna force me to some stupid party and I hate it. Anyone out there who has the same problem could share some tips or feelings with me?

    I just saw something on Facebook about traits

    men are attracted to in women. One of them was a laughing and smiling but apparently women are often more attracted to silent and brooding men. I used to to be one of the broodingest ******* you would have ever met. Maybe I need to go back.

    I am a highly suspicious person.

    Like why have you sent me a message? Why have you only just joined? Why do you talk like your from another time? I am analytic, I will analyse everything. I over analyse. That's me. Put yo **** under the microscope.

    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...

    I just like to leave the conversation

    and just observe time to time, but when I do leave, I am not able to to get back into the conversation. It is, for the most part, okay with me. I don't like being left out all the time, but time to time is fine with me, I guess.

    It's weird; I like to talk to people,

    but at the same time I fear that something awkward will happen and will bring the conversation to a full stop, which makes me to antisocial I am. It's a stupid fear, really, but there's not much I could think of to change it. That's also why I'm reluctant to message people on...

    Not entirely, but I highly value my alone time.

    Of all of my friends, family, and acquaintances, there is a very small percentage of people that I absolutely do not mind being around a lot, and these are the people who understand and accept my personality, who know how to approach me and when to give me space. Some...

    Sometimes people can be intrusive

    and take too much of your time, leaving you no time to recuperate. When people are greedy with your time it's hard to come up with more activities and think of new things to say because you just get this overwhelming irritation take over "Why don't you leave me alone? Why don't...
