I Am Sometimes Antisocial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 50,152 People

    Here I am, at home with my feet up,

    alone while the wife's out at work, I'm catching up on TV from before, during and after Christmas, ignoring the landline (they're mostly insurance calls anyway), ignoring anyone calling at the door...and enjoying the peace.

    I'm too ugly I'm too tall because literally my friends are short and prettier than me and when we are hanging out with the boys sometimes I just don't talk because someone is going to be rude to me. I can't even flirt I can't even go up to a guy and talk to him I try to be...

    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.

    All my friends would say I'm a wonderful friend

    because I never fail them when they need my help. I'm a good listener, avid fan, supporter, and a confidante. I even love helping them with some projects and give them moral support when needed. But I'm never good, and I don't feel good, when I'm in a group of people. I suddenly...

    and reading a good book, drinking tea or watching a documentary than going out with friends. I like to enjoy my own thoughts and to get to know myself better. I'm very different than people I'm surrounded by so that's might be the main reason I don't like to interact with...

    Call it being antisocial,

    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! :)

    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.

    How can people enjoy conversation?

    Vocabulary is so limiting to describe our emotions. I don't share them often, but I feel like speech limits my ability to describe thoughts or concepts. And why do people bother talking about others? Who gives a **** what they're doing? They are living their life like you are...

    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 really like meeting new people

    but I just have such a hard time talking with then face to face. It's really ruined a lot of my relationships and prevented me from dating guys that I really like. Just wish I could speak my mind more often with out feeling like vomiting.

    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.
