Socially awkward

Postby Sketchpen » Mon Aug 22, 2016 5:50 pm

I like to look at a scenario and would like to hear what others have to say. - (Introverted and socially awkward. And not interested in other peoples lives. Do not like to ask about, for example "what do they like to do? or what food they like? or are you well? " for you do not really want to know and also do not care. You consider peoples personal live non of your business, and it is boring; some say it goes in one ear and out the other. Plus you do not like to talk about yourself or your problems, you keep it all inside. Yet you are lonely but cannot over come this trait that keeps you from making friends.)

Is this scenario common, is their some thing wrong with a person like this? what are your thoughts on this matter?

Just, lol. It's common for me.

I try to be interested, and when there's someone interesting, I can actually listen to them. It all comes back to the way introverts like to lead conversations. We don't like small talk. And when you have nothing in common with people, and a discussion about life and death and philosophy and the universe isn't an option because normally you don't talk about these things because everyone's happy and not depressed and interested in sex and having a small talk, small talk can be the only option. And it can be boring.
And should you accept the loneliness feeling and try to persuade yourself that you don't need other people, or just get over it and go to parties just to realise you really want to be alone?

I'd say do what you like. If you feel lonely, speak to people. Find people you find interesting. Find people with similar interests. You're an introvert, and that's tough. Just do what you like, don't do what you don't like
I also have a social anxiety, which makes things even more interesting.

I found a solution to this- you just need to find new introverted friends that you can talk to about big things that matter in life. Or we can then just sit together in silence without feeling awkward. I am not saying it's easy to find them, it's actually difficult but keep trying. Places I meet other introverts at- hiking tours, organised group tours for solo travellers, meetup groups in your city/town.
You're not alone, most of us feel this way :) x

I have some troubles with a group of people who tease me. Now this makes me misunderstand all people. How can I deal with that group. How can I stop bending sounds and hate people.
