    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...

    I'd say I avoid crowds more then people.

    But I'm shy and I'm not the type to approach or start conversation. I'll sit and wait speak when spoken too.

    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 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...
