Might Be Considered Anti-social

I stay busy for days at a time.. and it's enough to make someone like me want to lose their mind.  At home, I'm pretty much left to myself, and the communication that does take place between me and my family is pretty tolerable.  But when I'm out and about, working or hanging out with friends, there's not a lot of time for thinking and doing what I'd prefer to be doing.  Even around my closest friends, I'm not entirely comfortable.. it's unfortunately, but my out-going nature is more of an act than anything, and I need this alone time to hang onto my sanity.  

It's so extreme that I wonder how I'd ever manage having a room mate or significant other that lives with me.  It's a big reason why I don't want a relationship, too.. I've been there and it takes up a lot of your time and focus.

I definitely know what you mean.
I think I'm a likable person and easy to talk to and be around, but it is so hard for me to be around others. I have only had one relationship that I could tolerate being with that person almost always, because somehow we knew how to be around each other and still give each other space.
