    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?

    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 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...

    In secondary school I'd see how many days I

    could avoid talking to anyone without being rude about it. I would talk when appropriate, but reset my timer. The most I went was about 10 days. I've always had periods of time that I wanted to be alone. Some of this was my personality, some depression or culture shock. As...

    Ok, I have an idea. Let's make a (neverending)

    thread full of positive words. Mention one at a time. I hope this thread may inspire those who see it I start: growth.

    I don't like ordering food

    and will usually just tell whoever I'm with what I want. My friends have accepted it, they'll ask if I want to order and if I say no they don't push but it bothers me that my parents nag me about it all the time and act like its a huge issue and I'm a failure to society that I...

    I like talking, but it has to be with

    that one person I really care about and cares about me, but other than that I enjoy being alone.

    I am in contact with people all through the week

    and can't be unreachable. When the weekend comes, I don't have to be in touch, so turn off phones etc. It's not that I'm being funny, I just need some peace and quiet!

    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.

    The older I get, the more I don't want to be

    around people. I love my family, and their good people, I just can't stand to be around them. I love going to church, but I always sit in the back. I sing, I listen to the sermon and then I'm out of there. I don't want to socialize. I just want to be left alone, but not 100% I...

    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...

    It's hard for me to talk on the phone,

    I just freeze up and blank out. In person I'm more lively and good vibes keep the conversation flowing, no need to force it. I'm beginning to text less and less. 1. I rarely get messages 2. It's even rarer that I send them. I guess that should be expected being that I have one...

    So, I don't choose to be antisocial it just happens through my shyness.

    My upbringing is completely defining my

    attitude I hardly have friends because of it and am lucky if I get a call in a day. My main worry is the day I get married will be so embarrassing because I have like 4 friends.

    I love going to Dallas by myself.

    Staying in a hotel by myself. Shopping by myself. Eating by myself. Sleeping by myself. I believe if you can't enjoy the company of yourself, you won't truly enjoy the company of others. Honestly, if you can't stand being alone with your thoughts, why would anyone else want...

    for this, but... Sometimes, when I'm home alone and I get freaked out, or if people are over and it's too much, I take a blanket and some pillows and my phone and headphones and hide in my closet and watch Netflix or go on tumblr or something. I always feel embarrassed about it...

    On the days that I feel antisocial,

    I want to stay in bed with the covers over me and not see or speak to anybody. I had a day like that the Saturday before last but unfortunately, I had to go out as my travel pass for work had run out and needed to be replaced/renewed.

    It's not that I have no friends

    or family around me. It's just most of the times, our way of thinking is so different they couldn't understand me. Or maybe it was just because I secretly think that I'm horrible. I mean, I tend to neglect people around me. Not because I don't care, it's because I'm such a lazy...

    I'm antisocial at times

    and happy to admit it. I think everyone should be from time to time. It's what you use the time for that's more important. People, like everything else in the world will drain your emotional and physical sense of being. Over time you have to be selfish and have some time...

    When I was little I use to switch off.

    If I didn't like people I'd sit there blankly and not move the whole time. They'd talk to me but I wouldn't respond. I could make myself silent or loud. It was pretty funny cause people just don't take the DAMN hint to leave you the hell ALONE
