Find people more of a wind up than a joy Watch

    I always hear people talking about how much fun they have with their friends, the virtues of being social, that sort of thing.

    I just find people ... tiring and more a wind up than a joy to be around. Don't get me wrong, I like my friends and family enough, but after about half an hour with them, I just feel tired and frustrated. I just want to get away from them, if only for five or ten minutes.

    What's wrong with me? I have social skills, I can get on with people, so why don't I seem to want to?

      You could all be introverts!

      Supposedly there are two types of people-introverts and extroverts. Extroverts like been around people, introverts like more of their own space. There is more to it then that but i wouldnt want to bore you so have a look online if you want!

      Im pretty much an introvert myself so i know how you feel! There are also some tips on how to cope in certain situations if you need it, all you gota do is search! Or if need be i could search around!
