I Just Don't Like Talking to People
How sad is that? I don't like having to pay attention to the thread of a conversation. My mind just keeps jumping around to other subjects or fixating on one subject and not moving along with the flow. I have a terrible habit of interjecting with something so off topic people look at me like I'm crazy. And that's just the talking part.
I feel like I misread body cues. You know, I can't tell if a person is just being friendly with me or flirting, if they are just stand-offish or really don't like me. I used to think I was pretty good at reading people, but it seemed a lot of people really didn't like me, and then my mom said I was paranoid. So now I have the added bonus of not trusting myself to know whether someone likes me.
So really, I just stopped talking to people. I'll fake it if they seem really desperate for conversation, but otherwise, I'd rather not.
