    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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 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'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...

    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 enjoy my own company most of the time.

    I don't really feel the need to go out and socialize with people...I'm perfectly happy staying at home and reading a good book :)

    Sometimes those who don't socialize much

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

    I become physically and mentally drained

    when I'm around too many people. I enjoy keeping myself company and just doing my own thing.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I am antisocial. It's not

    because I want to be anti-social it's because I'm very shy. Sometimes my boyfriend yells at me about it and says that it's embarrassing for him. But I don't mean to be that way I just feel like I never have anything interesting to add to the converstation.
