I think I might be anti-social?


Do you think some people might just not be built for people?

For several years I kept thinking I had a weird form of social anxiety, but soon realised I wasn't exactly anxious in social situations, but more I just didn't care about anyone. I hate hearing about other people's life and don't care about them - why? Because at university all anyone ever talks about is sex and getting drunk. Well, I don't drink and I've never had sex, and I don't care.

But at the same time I'm not one of these never-leave-your-room gamer types either. Usually I'm walking around outside somewhere shopping.

I just can't connect with anyone, and after years of having absolutely no friends I've pretty much given up. I don't feel like I can relate to anyone at all, so now don't bother trying.

Is anyone else like this?

Don't mean to be pedantic (yes I do), but you mean a-social rather than anti-social. A-social is feeling no need to socialise with others while anti-social is being a ****ing arsehole. And yes, I think that some people aren't built for people. I'm an orangutan in the chimp enclosure. It seems to come naturally to most people.

unless u are selfish and dont care about other peoples feelings,
i would not call u anti-social.

many of the so called "social" people, are anti-social.

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to fears, addictions and depression, and many enter through it."

So he said to the Socially Anxious People: "Look, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves."

"Truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." - The cure

Wow, you've pretty much described me to a T, although as someone already pointed out, the word "antisocial" means something very different, though it happens to also describe me as well, to an extent. Before I had anxiety to deal with I never really felt the need to socialize, to extend myself into other people's worlds, mostly kept to myself and the world seemed to revolve around me. I was very independent though observant at the same time.

You're probably quite independent, and don't feel the need to socialize. I was, (and still am), like this years ago.

Most everyday interactions are quite superficial, and are only meant as either a distraction, a means to relay info, or to gossip about x, y, or z, etc.
