I Am Sometimes Antisocial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 60,076 People

    I love being with other people,

    especially with friends. But most of the time, it's hard for me to make a conversation with my acquaintances because i feel like they aren't interested to talk to me.

    Sometimes, when I was at work

    or when I was busy I used think, "I need to get the hell home." I'm home all day today, with nothing: no one to talk to, no notifications on my phone... Nothing. I wanted this for a while but now that I have it, it's killing me. I guess I grew out of this phase.

    Sometime people are stupid

    and or toxic and not worth my time. They call it antisocial, I call it being selective who I let into my life.

    It's so annoying. I'm a natural super introvert,

    which makes people constantly think I'm antisocial. No people, when I'm going through an antisocial phase I stay alone and don't contact anyone. It's horrible but it happens sometimes. Introversion does not equal antisocial!

    Really I just appreciate time alone with myself.

    Otherwise I feel like a sponge where I absorb everything around me and I forget to shield myself from other people's energy.

    i hate small talk with strangers.

    doctors offices (especially mental health facilities) waiting rooms are a nightmare for me. I look like a nice person so people next to me always have something to say. today was the first day I remembered to bring my head phones and plugged them into my phone. if it didn't...

    Sometimes when I hang out with a lot of people

    a lot. I have to get away from them and be in my room in the dark to feel alone because that's how I think I should be.

    Call it being antisocial,

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

    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.

    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 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 :)

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

    Sometimes it's my the strangers I'm more

    comfortable talking with, and when it comes to my acquaintances and friends, I get this mentality that they'll get bored of me or don't like me altogether. 'They'll probably leave anyway.'

    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?

    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 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 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...
