    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...

    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...

    Am in my early 20s but I have failed to make

    friends. Even at the university my colleagues find me boring cause I never go out with them or fully participate in anything. I don't really have friends cause I barely talk to anyone since am always checking out my phone. What bothers me is that people think am proud cause I...

    I am the type of person

    that likes hanging out with friends, but has to be forced to do so. My girlfriend usually makes me go out, but once I am out I really enjoy myself. When out with a group of people, I am very extroverted and outgoing, such that people are shocked to hear I am actually an...

    I'm a little bit annoyed right now.

    I've had this friend for over 5 years. He's always been slightly flakey but we would catch up now and again. I never felt like it was much of a struggle to hang with him... Anyway it's been over a month and a half since we last hung out. Suggested to hang for a bit this...

    my anxiety is so bad

    that at 27 years old I have yet to have a real relationship or even be intimate with someone. I have trouble talking in person or on the phone. the only time I feel like I can be myself is through messages/texts. it also doesn't help that I'm a closet lesbian and feel like I can...

    My family says I'm allergic to people.

    My classmates say I make friends really easily because I can talk to anyone. They're both wrong. I'm not antisocial and it takes a lot for me to go talk to someone I don't know... or worse, talk to someone I know a lot about. But my real thing is to be alone. I like being alone...

    Just a bit of friendly advice to people.

    Antisocial does not mean you avoid talking to people and society, that is asocial. Antisocial means against society, (Anti-social) which means doing things that are considered to harm people and society (stealing, bullying, assault etc)

    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...

    For every individual

    who points their nose towards a socially anxious person to smugly remark "Get over your selfish pride. You're just being rude". I want to wrap my small, delicate hands around your neck, to rest my thumb against your vocal chords. At first, it is only a soft clasp. Almost lady...

    Dude. I am so anti social,

    to the extent that I literally fear being questioned in the Subway order line. It's not like there questions are deeply personal. You wouldn't think that one would fear hearing, "What toppings would like" but I am that one. It makes me feel like a freak to be honest but I sweat...

    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?

    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! :)

    a true wanderer, a loner I guess

    that makes me antisocial. bar full of people. yet i feel so alone. the guys with their plastic cups and the women with their plastic smiles. some drink to celebrate, others drink to forget, and i drink to dissapear. numb. my heart left some time ago. cheers to being social.

    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.

    More often then not I tend to be antisocial.

    I just do not enjoy the company of others around me as much as I enjoy my own. I tend to think differently then most and always look at the bigger picture of things, which many my age do not. I can appreciate the small things in life. I also enjoy reading and writing my own...

    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...

    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.
