    What Is Wrong With Me?

    I've been told I'm weird, I've been told I'm antisocial and I've been told I'm just trying to call for attention and the worst part is that those words came from the people I call friends everyday. I've tried so many times to changue the way I act in crowds or when I meet new...

    In my youth I could play the crowd and still it is a talent.  The crowd is different from the individuals.  It is not the sum of them.  It's another entity and it has a life of its own, independent from the lives of its members. Crowds can pretty easily be...

    I Like To Think I Am But Im Definately Not Good At Socializing

    I don't know why. Im good with understanding people. Sometimes Im over confident in social situations. But it has become apparent, now that Im almost 27, that the main reason Im not more successful despite my skills is because somewhere in my adolecent years learning how to be...

    It's really true... I can't

    even really start conversations. Pretty much all people that I know, both in real life and online have either talked to me first, or had to be introduced to me by someone else. So if you want to talk to me, you'll probably have to message me first. I'm sorry. But I'll try my...

    I've had this startling realization.

    I don't have a lot of friends in real life. I don't have a lot of friends online. My only conclusion is that I'm terrible at socializing. I know it seems like a pointless thing to wish, but I would love to have many friends. Not overwhelming amounts of them, but maybe like 8...

    :(

    I struggle not to be jealous of people who easily speak up and get people attention. And I am living with one, actually. I just had a dinner with some friends at my place (I invited them) and I had to invite my housemate for dinner too just so I do not seem to try to exclude her...
