    Can U Shut Up. That's A Request, Not A Question.

    I hate when I'm in public and people I'm with want to talk to me sometimes, especially when they see I'm quiet. I hate when people talk to me when I'm busy. I hate when people talk to me and I don't feel like talking period. Why can't people take hints/clues/cues???!!!

    Would you believe it?

    ?? LOL It's not the silence in my relationship that bothers me but the lack of communication. I love talking with someone who doesn't mind how my head works or sharing their thoughts with me, but I don't often feel speech is necessary. Touch, I feel, is very necessary. Eye...

    I don't really connect with the people I

    considered "friends" anymore in my "hometown" which isn't "home" to me anymore.

    Being quiet for a short

    while gives me the chance to recollect my thoughts and feelings. It enables me reassess if what I am about to say is what I really mean to say. I am aware that a sudden burst of negative emotion can make us say things that we may be sorry for, afterwards. This is why a quick...

    It's a weird thing that I have.

    .. I used to be very social, and still am to a certain extent. I associate with people at school and such, but these days I never feel like talking to people on the phone, or even messaging. The only person I really talk to anymore is my girlfriend, but she is the only one that I...

    Yeah. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to

    talk. It sucks when certain websites don't have the option of putting an "away" sign up, or a "busy" or "invisible" sign. This website gives you that option only if you're paying for it. But other websites, skype, and even games like League of Legends has it. But it doesn't...

    I Can'T Talk Right

    I find myself saying a "hi!" Or "hello" and a how are you, I'm fine. And then the conversation trails off to questions and I'm the only one asking and I seem very inhuman in my speech. In thinking about it now, that might be the reason I only have one friend. People just seem...

    Especially when I don't like the person I'm

    talking to, not because of the physical appearance but more of their attitude. I hate rude people.

    So I don't. I hardly ever talk.

    I don't talk at school and I don't talk around anybody. I reply to my mum occasionally and talk to my pets but that's it.

    It's Not Because I Don't Like You

    At  my core I am a very quiet reserved person. Sometimes I just enjoy the sound of silence. Give me a topic and I usually have an opinion but there are days when I feel reflective and quiet. It's who I am.

    I Don't Really Want To Talk Sometimes...

    This has been happening a lot lately.   I just don't feel like talking.  I get into these moods sometimes.  I feel that I have nothing to really contribute to a conversation, so I just shut down and I won't talk to anyone.

    Introversion Doesn't Equal Fear

    Sometimes people talk because they're too uncomfortable with silence. Just be clear of your intentions. Don't suppress what doesn't need to be suppressed, and don't speak just because we live in a society that puts so much emphasis on "Living out loud."

    Silence

    Silence is wonderful. those brief moments in life, where nothing needs to be said. sometimes I just don't feel like talking. it's not that I'm not enjoying someones company, just sometimes, I like the silence.

    Awkward silences? Some people feel the need to

    rush in by filling the space and air with mindless chatter or noise for fear of silence. Peace and quiet is good. Do not be afraid of it.

    Someone can talk to me

    and I will just stare at them, feeling unable to talk, and unwilling, which leads to me be annoyed if they insist on talking to me. I don't even really realise that I'm just staring at them, it's kind of weird.

    I'm mad at my friend lately.

    I'm really displeased with the way she hates on America. She's been drawing burning flags and puts down everything, and I hate it because I disagree. Idon't want anything to do with that but don't want to seem mean. I just really hate that she does all that.
