Caring too much about what other think or might think of you, that's my problem in social situations, I just sometimes get a bad feeling over the way I'm getting judged. I also find it hard to block these thoughts out lol.
Reasons why people just can't socialise Watch

I come across and friendly, sociable and talkative but, to be honest, I can't stand human interaction half the time. I get weary and tired quickly at parties and end up just wanting to go home, same with if I go to someone's house. For me, it's depression/anxiety and just how I am now *shrug*

Small talk feels pointless. A lot of the time I just get into situations where I just don’t feel like talking. I also find it hard to relate to other people. People never seem to bounce back questions my way either.
I also think I give out this general vibe because I recently had a large company meeting which initially started off with a social at the reception area with drinks. I had a bit of a chat with my coworkers but soon the awkwardness sets in and I turn into the guy that’s standing like a lemon talking to no one because theyve found more interesting people to talk to. The longer this lasts the longer I start hating the whole thing so I just want to leave because it gets painful. On top of that I can barely hear the people standing next to me with everything going on around so its hard to make conversation in the first place.
I dont consider myself to be shy, I guess I just can't hold a conversation which turns into awkwardness which then encourages anyone around me to start talking to someone else.Last edited by rjm101; 13-04-2013 at 03:28.

dunno why i sometimes find it hard to go with banter, or just generally let loose and be myself a little#
i really hope this changes by the time i go to uni
kinda makes me sad
i guess it is down to how comfortable you are with yourself tbh

Preference of a solitary lifestyle caused by a fear of rejection due to being uncomfortable with social norms, rules of discourse, and interpreting other's needs and charges.

Although I'm far more confident than I was a few years ago I'm consistently frustrated and confused when I go to talk to a stranger or acquaintance and despite the words being fully formed in my head and my body not demonstrating any visible signs of nervousness, I inevitably end up stuttering and speaking quietly, or losing track of what I was trying to say.
It's bloody annoying. And like I said, I'm really not even that shy anymore.

Fear of saying a nonsense and being laughed or judged at that.
