I Am Sometimes Antisocial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 45,033 People

    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...

    Usually the times I feel the most antisocial is

    when I'm surround by people. Like at a party where I'm laughing and talking yet its the time i feel the most alone, alone in a crowd. I feel like i can't connect with them or anyone. Then i find myself avoiding people for days on end

    I Wonder why is it so hard to people to

    understand sometimes you just need to be left alone.. not because You're sad, depressed or whatever, maybe we want a little silence once in a while. My friends always assume there must be something wrong in my life when i "disappear". Sometimes i dont feel like talking to people...

    sometimes hanging out just doesn't seem worth

    the effort. it's takes mental effort before I can get myself dressed and out of the house. I've been putting off this one friend for about a year because of my lack of effort..and she has too since she's also sort of antisocial...anyway.

    I'm so scared of rejection to the point that

    even walking up to someone to say hi scares me. I do great once engaged in conversation but I can never make the step to approach someone first. and if I do its always after taking 10-20 minutes just to build up the courage. When I'm at home I find that I'd rather be upstairs in...

    I'm frequently called antisocial

    because I don't engage in small talk in parties and gatherings. I don't mind listening but it's not fun for me to talk about random nonsense just to have someone like me. My wife admitted to me recently that her friends think I'm hiding something because I don't talk a whole...

    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! :)

    for me. I love talking to people and I have no problems doing so. I am just either too tired or too lazy to talk to people sometimes.

    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...

    I have a social anxiety disorder.

    Although I prefer to be alone at times I do crave some kind of social life or at least a friend. But I have neither and when I try I either can't go or make it to the event and have a panic attack to just leave and cry on the way home. Idk what's wrong with me and I have...

    I can be such an introvert.

    I'll go weeks without wanting to see anyone. I even avoid public places, and only go if I absolutely have to.

    I seldom go out. I got really no real friends that you can share what's going on or what's on your mind. I'm not really sure if I can call them friends who I hang out once in a while... everytime we meet, we just talk about superficial things like what they've just bought new...

    I wouldn't say that I'm strictly antisocial,

    but I can honestly say that every last one of my friends: male and female(boyfriends included) have approached me FIRST. I NEVER initiate first contact. It's weird but I don't speak unless spoken to.

    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...

    I am sometimes antisocial.

    I think....Perhaps the word antisocial needs to be more clearly defined. I will define it for myself as - overwhelmed by being around people. I am sometimes overwhelmed when I am around people and they say and do things that I think about ....over and over.

    It's not so much that I am anti social.

    It's more of people don't have much of anything interesting to say, so I make the common one word replies, "damn" "cool" "nice" to allow the conversation to die out.

    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 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.

    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.
