    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...

    Call it being antisocial,

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

    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 :)

    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...

    I'm an awkward person

    and when I'm trying to be nice or "cool" when around new people I come off as weird and hyper??

    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...

    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! :)

    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...

    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.

    Lately the girl who seemed to enjoy being in

    the spotlight, having all the attention on herself is changing her ways. She's beginning to want to be alone most of the time. She's beginning to question the typical way of life, she wants more, a lot more than just human contact. I just want to vanish, and float endlessly in...

    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.

    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...

    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!

    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.

    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?
