Thats how I was described today by a ‘friend’. They all feel the same, not only ‘friends’ but 99% of people I meet. I have this skill of irritating people beyond belief. I don’t know what I do. I can never make true friends. I’m 18 and have never been out socially before. Ever.

What the hell is wrong. Why?!?!?!

Do you know how you irritate these people? Is it things you say, the way you act? How do you act around your friends?

You need to look at yourself and try and think how you would feel if another person was saying the things you say to you. I used to be a wretched little ***** until I actively chose to stop.

apparently i am like that. I have a nack for being selfish and inconsiderate. I have extreme views(not racist, just weird) and i am sexist(apparently) and i appear to be boss and a know it all.

I have a few friends, but they stick to me with life

right now i hate uni because i can't make friends, and i am changing uni.

How do you behave around your friends? Like, what things do you say?

You're not changing uni because you can't make friends? The reasons you give for not making friends are on your behalf, so changing uni solves nothing. Just try and make a harder effort

Think before you speak, if that fails just talk a lot less.

Agreed. If you think before you speak about if you think something's going to go down well, and stop yourself from saying it if you decide it isn't, you're most of the way there. And there's nothing wrong with having extreme views, but do you make a big point of them when first meeting people?

Woah, It scary seeing this come from somebody else. I have irritated so many people beyond belief in my lifetime. I'm only 18, have only a small selection of pals (which are now off at Uni) and even they have told me how annoying, irritating, and "punch-worthy" I am sometimes. I always ask why and they some people can't put their finger on it: "Its just something about you" they say. I really don't know what it is. I have now entered a period of silence around new people as I am now to afraid of offending them and making an ass of myself.

How do you know I want to punch you or not? If you are irratating, isolate the reason by changing parts of yourself daily and seeing what it is. I am not advocating altering your personality or being fake for things that are neutral (i.e. not good or bad traits), merely that it will help you understand yourself better. If it is a negative aspect, like for example you ***** about other people a lot, stop. If it is, say, you have a whiney voice, inject yourself with pure testosterone and bull semen. That, or talk slowly and clearly. Isolate it, then decide what to do. Asking TSR people anonymously is not going to help you one iota.

I'm in the same boat as you. And I mean everyone even though I tried hard sometimes.
