    I suck at socializing/small talk.

    ... I seriously don't know how people can find something to talk about. While there's me looking for something amusing to say

    Sometimes I Do, Sometimes I Don't

    it really depends on the mood I'm in, the amount of people there, if I know people or not, and what the scene is like. there's also random factors that come into play that I can't name (as there is in everything)

    I'm okay with big groups

    but I get awkward and anxious in the smaller the groups and one on one. It's different if it's closer friends of course but I don't have a lot of close friends this might have something to do with that.

    Everyone Just Looks At Me Like I'm From Another Planet

    It would make sense if I was weird looking or something, but I'm not. I seem to be able to blend in when I want to. The thing is, it's those situations that really call for someone to be engaging; those are the situations where I'm at such a loss for something to say. I just want...

    I'm Socially Awkward - A Few Examples

    I see everything as a social rule,

    and I get too nervous and I have no clue what to do. Am I supposed to wait for you or is that too clingy? Am I allowed to hang out with other friends, am I supposed to tell you first or does that make you seem dominating? It's weird, I don't know, I'm scared, I prefer being...

    I don't mean to sound rude

    but I've noticed that when I'm around people for long periods of time I feel both physically and emotionally exhausted. I don't socialize much anyway but I don't understand why I always feel this way.

    I'm envious of people

    who are socialable and charismatic - I have none of that. I'm naturally shy, quiet, and secretive, and hate to be noticed, yet I hate not being noticed. I hate attention yet I crave attention. I went to a party last night, and I hate parties. Rightly so, because I can't...

    Me? Shy?

    Funny, no one expects I'm so shy, because once I'm comfortable, I can keep a conversation going. But until that point, I don't know what to say... And I feel silly... :-P

    I think another thing

    that makes me say I suck at socializing, other than not having a presence and being all around forgettable and rather unlikable which I've mentioned before, is that I'm not witty. This is not a social requirement I know, but...perhaps it's not so much that I'm not witty is that...

    I'm absolutely horrible at socializing with

    others. I never know what to say most of the time, and I always get this hot, nervous feeling. A majority of the time I stutter or become quiet while I'm speaking, and I can never look that person in the eyes.
