    If I had to choose a life of complete solitude

    or never being alone again, I would choose solitude.

    The reason I'm antisocial is

    because I don't really trust people. I mean, most of my friends have hurt me one way or the other, so I just keep to myself. No way to hurt me, if there is no one to hurt me.

    I am the type of person

    that likes peace and quiet. Sometimes when I'm around toxic people I need to be alone for a while to recharge.

    I have absolutely no problem with being

    antisocial. I'm a very laid back person. All the other extra stuff in life like social media make life more complex. I love not doing anything.

    I shut off all of my social media.

    I shorten the length of conversations. I worry my friends and everybody close to me. But I don't care all too much; I'd just like to be left completely alone sometimes.

    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.

    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 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 my own particular brand of brutal honesty

    where I tell people what I think. I'm not afraid to tell people my honest opinion (exceptions of course apply) but this often makes me come across as an ***. My close friends know that I do care and I'm always there for people - even people I don't know that well - and I'm...

    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 get really lonely at times

    but I can't tell why it is. Sometimes I go through my phone and there's nobody. Not that I don't know people -- no, but that there's nobody I'd rather be talking to. I feel I don't have any close friends and that the ones I am close to have gotten too much of me. And what I have...

    When does wearing giant headphones,

    staring into space, reading something, or putting your head down signify "I WANT CONVERSATION!"? Kind of mean-sounding, but I dislike people trying to engage conversation when I show clear disinterest. Of course, I won't be mean to you, but I don't quite take kindly to being...

    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...

    Call it being antisocial,

    call it social anxiety. Either way being alone is best <3

    I was bullied for almost the entirety of my

    public school experience, but especially in high school. For the most part I've moved on but on occasion I think about it and I get mad. Today is one of those days. One thing I regret is I didn't kick the guy's face in, choke him to near death, lose a couple teeth while I was a...

    Well not that is not true.

    I am not antisocial. I don't shun other people because I prefer my own company better. I would say I am quiet and reserved though. This I have found is because I am looking for those deeper relationships not just shallow almost meaningless things. In the past I have had a hard...

    i have no problem with being alone

    and tear apart those who dare disturb my peace. often I resolve into hermit mode when the world gets too unmanageable. i shut pwople out and maintain a highly sarcastic and bitter if not antisocial disposition.

    How couldn't I be Antisocial?

    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...

    There are times when I can think of nothing to

    say to the other person, leading to awkward silence. My mind checks out and it takes too much effort to fake it. I hate "faking" social interactions.

    I'm comfortable with silence,

    so I can sit across from or next to someone and have no urge to talk, and that creeps some people out

    Every so often I stop answering calls

    and texts. I end friendships. I withdraw from socializing. This probably happens twice a year. I guess I can only take so much human interaction.

    aren't actually antisocial, they just have no tolerance for drama and fake people. 🙈

    What is a person suppose to do

    when they are so uninteresting that they have literally nothing to ever talk about. How do you make friends when you would rather just save yourself the embarrassment of saying something stupid to them.
