    At Least One Step Behind

    As long as I can remember, and I remember events from when I was two, I never really understood people. As early as preschool I never really knew what to do with, others; and I rarely had more than one friend at a time, though all the "teachers" liked me. The same remained true...

    I Dislike Most People

    Normally, I find that I am pretty socially awkward. I've always been shy and I am pretty hard of hearing. These two things do not go well together, believe me. I have a threshold when it comes to talking to people and I am totally transparent. I like to get out once in a blue...

    I Don't Relate to What People Say About Themselves

    I'm now 57 and I want to try to be very explicit about what I mean by "I don't relate to people". When I say I didn't talk to a soul all weekend, and someone says "Oh, I know what you mean!" and then I find out that they spent their weekend at home with their...

    Alone

    I feel like I just can't relate to people. I'm a misfit in every sense of the word. I don't date, I don't do drugs, I'm not religious, and my hair's bright purple. People just don't understand me. I feel pretty self aware for my age, yet I don't like talking about things that...

    Sometimes I can't tell

    if I'm insane or one of the few sane people on the planet. I just don't get other people. One issue is my complete lack of understanding about relationships. I don't feel attraction or love so when a friend starts telling me about all the bad things in their relationship, that...

    Conflicted In Isolation

    I have had problems relating to people ever since I was a teenager.  I just don't seem to be concerned about the same things that a lot of other people think about.  I try to interest myself in some of those things, but I can't seem to bring myself to enjoy a lot...

    Difficulty Making Friends

    I am not a bad person and can easily strike up a conversation with the odd stranger, oddly enough I have a hard time making friends especially female ones.

    Feeling Alone In The World

    No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to relate to people. My interests are very narrow, I guess. I like to think about and discuss things that more often than not, people seem to think is stupid, or a waste of time. A man in my family, not liking auto-mechanism and sports...
