    Dont anyone agree?

    I mean hate being around people. I dont mind if its a good friend but only for a short period 30-60mins.

    But then forced to be around people like at work or in a shop or on bus at college etc.....meetings, doctors watining room etc....etc..

    I hate it for a few reasons personally,

    I always had bad acne and hate people looking at me.
    I hate crowds and take panic attacks.
    I just get OCD thoughts around other people, violent, sexual etc...

    I only feel right left alone but you cant live an easy life like that always forced to be around people.
    I don't have OCD but i generally hate people and society in general. there is a word for such people...

    Yeah, but not because they're boring. I just enjoy my own company more than being with others. I also feel far more at ease on my own.

    Social anxiety sucks.

    It might not necessarily mean that you HATE people.

    I think the correct term is that you just don't tend to tolerate people as well as others might do as you said, you feel comfortable around friends...

    For periods of time longer than two hours, yes. I just feel completely drained/exhausted and need a day to myself to recover. Pretty weird, right? I just seem to get bogged down in the fact that they really only want to talk about themselves. I feel more comfortable having prolonged contact with my family though, which doesn't make much sense.

    I'm more extroverted than introverted.
    Would prefer being in a large group of people than just a couple of people.

    Being a misanthrope?

    P.S. I'm not being offensive, I just think this is the word you're looking for.

    I can get along with people easily but they do generally talk BS so aside from a small group of people I don't like spending a lot of time with people.

    Sometimes. Especially after a period where I've had to be around a lot of [new] people, e.g. if I've just started a placement or if I've gone out 3 nights in one week. I need the time by myself or I'll just be horrible.

    You should seek out counselling for the OCD thing, but don't worry about the rest, you don't have to like people.

    i know what you mean too, though i don't necessarily hate people i do find it unnerving at times.

    I like a bit of quiet time sometimes like when I'm walking home at night but I do like company too.

    I absolutely hate (most) people, though I can get along with anyone. I love my friends, and I do have them lol, but I can't stay around them for long - it makes me uncomfortable for whatever reason.

    I'm not particularly self-confident either. I've got a lot of online friends that I can speak to for hours and hours on end instead though - to make up for the lack of people "in real life" who interest me.

    What are your hobbies anyway?

    Only if they're people I dislike. I do understand feeling drained after socialising, but disliking people in everyday situations for no reason doesn't sound healthy.
