I Avoid People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 146 People

    I like being around people,

    but I have to be in the mood for it. I really enjoy my own company. Sometimes I go out of my way to avoid people, for example I'll walk the back roads on campus so I don't have to say hi and engage in small talk with my peers.

    I will seriously pretend like I didn't see you

    Awkward!

    Everyday I am put in various awkward situations. I'm generally shy so that doesn't really help things. Whenever i feel there might be an uncomfortable situation about to occur I walk the other way.  I avoid the guy I like, I avoid my friends-it just seems easier that way. If I...

    I am shy and have social anxiety,

    so not a fun guy to be around. People who know me think that I can be fun or their friend, but they are wrong. People who talk to me just waste their time. No one has any reason to try to make me laugh or attempt to pass the time with me rather than someone else. So, I either...

    Lately I realized I avoid people

    and even my friends. Like at school sometimes if I see them I look away and pretend I didn't see them and wait until they see me. Even my crush, I know where he's at or hangs out and I would avoid him. Is this normal? I'm trying to be better at smiling and saying hi but I fear...

    I don't why but I feel uncomfortable around

    people. Recently a friend told me someone asked her why I was so quiet. I was surprised and embarrassed someone else noticed. I thought I just didn't enjoy small talk, but I think it's deeper than that. Oddly enough, I enjoy socializing sometimes, just not all the time. Am I...
