I Am Sometimes Antisocial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 19,669 People

    Sometimes? More like most of the time.

    I was on a train yesterday, sitting in the lounge car, and two older teenage boys tried to start a conversation with me. I flat out ignored them and pretended like I couldn't hear them. This is why I'm missing out on so much in life.

    It's hard to find people

    who are on the same wavelength as me. I like meaningful conversations. I'm a deep person

    Last week i was feeling really down

    so i decided to stay all alone in my room for 5 days without speaking to anyone, loosing myself online watching Series and using the silence to write music.

    I go through stages of being antisocial,

    it helps me think clearly and catch up things I need/want to get done. :)

    I am more of a selective antisocial,

    I can be really fun, talkative and funny with people I really enjoyed with, but for the others I feel so exhausted and fake when I try to talk and be nice.

    I've been on a "social hibernation"

    for more than a month already. I haven't opened my then very active Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. My semester starts this August and I know I have to suck it up and face all my "friends" again. Sure, they're fun, they're helpful, but if I had a choice I'd rather stay at...

    If I see someone I know in the distance it

    fills me with a sense of dread as I will have to stop at talk to them. I sometimes pretend I haven't seen them and to go into the nearest shop or go down a different street just so I don't have to stop and chat. Sometimes I can be ok but most of the time I'm like this.

    I sometimes just want to hide away from people,

    I need a safety net in case things get to much. I either want to sit alone in nature or curl up in my bed and sleep my worries away.

    I've always been fascinated with lots of things.

    Even of the simplest of things I find it really interesting but when I try to talk to someone about it they are quick to dismiss as nonsense that's why now I don't talk to people that often.I just keep my thoughts inside me and frankly I'm surrounded with shallow people who only...

    I like listening to people talk,

    because I find it easier to just listen/watch how a person acts before I finally decide to say something to them.

    I am a recovering alcoholic.

    Single parent, currently going through a divorce. I really have no desire to be around people at all anymore. Solitude seems safer than social situations, and outside of spending time with my child, i have no interest in activities that would involve others

    Sometimes I feel like everyone is talking about

    me behind my back and I just want to tun away from them. I know it's childish but in people's company, I always feel like the odd one out. In truth, I prefer my own company + mp3 to anyone else's company. At least then I know that they aren't talking about me.

    I won't call my mom. I tell my kids they can't

    come over with the grands. I leave my phone on silent and try to forget where I put it. I abhor the mall/shops/stores. I levitate with rage when people drop by unannounced. SOMETIMES.

    I'm pretty outgoing but I wish I was genuinely

    comfortable around people. Because I'm either intimidated or scared, always watch what I say and feel awkward this I making me less social and I want to socialize and listen to and love people. ;(

    Hey it's more like introverted,

    or maybe there aren't people who can talk to you about what's in your mind, just always about the common instead of the uncommon ;)

    Sometimes... but I think often is more accurate.

    I have layers of secrets that I don't want anyone to know. 50% because I'm afraid of judgement and 50% because I just want security. The only person I'm truly honest with is my bf.

    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...

    A lot of people find this unusual

    when they find this out. I am usually someone who is outgoing and is not afraid to talk to anyone. Heck, I even flirt with newcomers! I usually end up becoming antisocial when something arises which I was not expecting or if an incident occurs. It truly is strange.

    I'm not sure if antisocial is the right word

    for me. Maybe I'm just really avoidant. I want to be around friends and meet new people, but it seems every time the opportunity presents itself, I always opt to stay home. Then later I feel crappy and lonely and miserable. It's a vicious cycle really. I know I should just stop...
