    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 have never been good at speaking to anyone I don't know intimately well and especially if I'm alone with a group. My fiance jokes about it and says that I have less social skills than a potato! I have to agree with him. There are quite a few instances of social embarrassment...

    I am so pathetic. I went out tonight (I never

    do) and I have realized that I am invisible. I am not attractive to anyone. No one approaches me for anything. I, instead, approached several people to start a conversation, but it was evident that my conversation annoyed them. I am worthless. I used to have many acquaintances...

    Even On The Internet?

    If you can't be social on the internet you might as well throw in the towel. I realize I am horrible at being active on here. I don't reply to PM's. I don't read my friends stories as much as I should. I don't say hi on whiteboards. I reap what I sow. I have three people that are...

    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.

    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.

    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)
