Absolutely! I started another thread the other day regarding whether the key to having friends is to act indifferent. I always worry about appearing too talkative and maybe a 'male bimbo'. I fear that the vibe people get from me comes off as forced. But the subjects I usually talk about are not 'dumb' topics. They're deeper and more intellectual.
But regarding being too social, it's not just SA having an impact on the way I socialize but also the fact that I haven't had any friends for a LONG time because of SA.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who worries about this
I definately have this problem too! I do this really great thing where I'm really clingy and desperate, then I realise that I'm coming off too strong and scaring the other person away, so I back off- way too much. Then I come off as cold. I can't seem to do the middle thing. I'm always either too clingy or too detached.
