    Is it just me or is holding up conversations through social media or even just speaking to people in general just complelely taxing? Like honestly, I used to be awful with ignoring people online but last year I began to actually meet new people and keep in touch with them.
    Now I'm back to where I was before and blatantly ignore my friends because I can't handle conversations, even sending snapchat streaks are an effort.
    Am I just an antisocial-a**hole?

    Nah, you're not. With how busy we all are and how exhausting social interaction can be it's completely understandable. Plus Snapchat streaks can feel like such a waste of time sometimes... All you're doing is sending the same pics back and forth every day. It gets so boring!

    I can relate OP. Hence I stopped trying. You sound introverted. Nothing wrong with that. Don’t feel bad and like you have to keep a conversation or a streak. Just ignore them if it makes you feel less drained.

    What is a Snapchat streak?
    When you speak to a person on snapchat everyday you get a new streak number. Example: speak for 3 days straight to the same person and you get a number 3 next to that person’s name and maybe some random ass emoji. So yeah...that kinda bs

    Ah! yeah, that sounds typically awful.

    Apparently so, yeah. I can't be bothered with most of these things. It seems like lots of effort for no reward.

    Same here man. But I’m still a teenager so as you can imagine it’s sort of frustrating for me

    Haha yeah - I can recall being 19/20 and completely uninterested in pretty much everything the lads in my age range round here were into. Well, aside from the footie.

    Oh totally! I know some people like their streaks so I tend to wait until the last possible moment before sending anything. I tend to go through phases of being social and not wanting anything to do with others, everything is an effort I'm not committed to!

    Yeah I've also given up, I think my bed and my books give me the amount of social involvement I need. I don't mind meeting up with people in person but conversations online require so much effort! Oh yes my snapchat is filled with ignored messages that I tell myself I'll reply to but end up ignoring for weeks...
