    I grew up in many different foster homes.

    Moved around a lot in my life. Now that I'm older, I realize what effect it had/has on my interpersonal skills. I'm good at talking with random people in public(my 7 year told me recently"You talk to everyone, mommy" lol)However, it's just small talk and that's where it ends. My...

    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...

    I am a highly suspicious person.

    Like why have you sent me a message? Why have you only just joined? Why do you talk like your from another time? I am analytic, I will analyse everything. I over analyse. That's me. Put yo **** under the microscope.

    Sometimes I wish I could just fit in,

    but I don't have the energy. Too much effort I tell myself. I would rather be alone. Then why do I stand on the outside of a group of people longingly looking in. I can not be all happy and laughing and social and desirable to bring people to me. So I stay by myself.

    Technically what people mean is asocial.

    Antisocial is the actions against people and society which are often violent and without conscience. Asocial is the lack of wanting to socially interact. I am sometimes asocial mainly because of my mental illness which often go hand in hand. Volunteering with...

    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.

    In secondary school I'd see how many days I

    could avoid talking to anyone without being rude about it. I would talk when appropriate, but reset my timer. The most I went was about 10 days. I've always had periods of time that I wanted to be alone. Some of this was my personality, some depression or culture shock. As...

    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 really dislike having to talk to people at my

    job... I mean, they're old people but still... I don't like it. I would rather do twice as much work than have to talk to people. Three times as much even. Four! Let's leave it at five times as much work in exchange for not having to talk to people.

    any one else's and there's nothing wrong with that. At the end of the day, we ultimately only have our own selves.

    When I was little I use to switch off.

    If I didn't like people I'd sit there blankly and not move the whole time. They'd talk to me but I wouldn't respond. I could make myself silent or loud. It was pretty funny cause people just don't take the DAMN hint to leave you the hell ALONE

    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?
