Keeping silent when I actually have nothing to say. Apparently its anti social, but I'm just very comfortable being silent when I literally have nothing to say, even if I'm with someone.

same with me...I'm not a big fan of small talk at all. Which doesn't really work well in the work place, but I genuinely have nothing to say.

Oh and for me, some people think it's rude if I don't automatically ask how they are eg "hey you alright" .."yeah good thanks". And I just leave it as that. Was I supposed to ask how you were? Because even if I did, the socially acceptable thing would be "I'm fine" so why should I bother asking anyway?:rolleyes:

So when I was with a friend,my phone rang and he saw on my wallpaper was a picture of myself, a selfie I took about a week earlier. No other friends, no clever caption or meme, just me. He thought this was weird and said that no one does this. I didn't really understand that, because from my point of view, I looked nice :rolleyes: and so yes, I wouldn't mind looking at that picture when I unlock my phone. I didn't even think it suggests I'm vain, because it's not like I'm showing everyone, uploaded it online, or even wanted him to see...it's just for me.

Does anyone else actually do this? Or see the problem in it?

What things do you do which could be seen as perhaps a little socially unacceptable?
I wouldn't say that's weird. ive got a photo of myself which I am pretty pleased with, Im keeping it because I was pretty proud of my photography skills when taking the photo, (usually my pictures come out blurry) I haven't shown anyone it just myself like you. things I do which can be seen as socially unacceptable is probably giving my opinions, no one likes your opinions in general and when they ask if you like something/ how are you, and you give them an honest answer the other person just dosnt care or just dosnt like your views. so..... yeah society wants us to be sheep and follow the heard and not question anything.

I would assume you were mentally deficient if I saw you dressed like this.

I know you're trying to be an ironic, kooky student or whatever, but still.
Actually, the only thing I was trying to be was comfortable, thank you very much.

I take "too many" napkins in eateries.
So do I!

I wouldn't need to if they weren't so tightly packed into those holder-things, that when you try to take just 1 or 2 they rip in your hands. You have to take almost the entire bunch! lol

Surely that's mainly the South of the country? People in/around Leeds are fairly chatty.

For me it is definitely being overly friendly and not holding back at all with what I say to people...
It may well be, the only time I've really been up north was a school trip to York so I couldn't possibly comment on what northerners are like :lol:

When I guess it would be polite to "take it easy" on someone at something or give them a chance when they challenge you at something or when you get paired up with someone who is less skilled then you, I'm like **** it I'm going for it
