As a socially awkward introvert, this touched me very deeply. I don't like socializing in large groups or with strangers - I've just created a social shell of sorts, an exterior personality that reflects a sliver of what's within, that goes through all the motions and rituals of socialization without getting anything from it.

Wow, I just realized how sad that sounds.

But it's true, and it's usually just fine. It becomes a problem, though, when I want to get to know someone better and have nothing more than my shallow external personality to show. There's plenty more to me, a lot more, but I don't know how to show it.

Honest admissions like these usually garner red thumbs, but oh well. I'll just post it and see if there are many like-minded people out there.

I like how everyone always says, "Oh it's easy, just go up and talk to people."   
What they forgot to include is, "even though you have nothing interesting or relative to say and in some rare working try not to make them look at you like a zombie while trying to do so."   
   
I.....I think I'll not.

I often used to wonder why I would feel so tired whenever I got home. The other day I think I figured it out.

I'm naturally an awkward introverted person, but I put up this facade for people in my daily life. I'm still "the quiet guy" but I manage to force myself to be personable so that people will like me. It's sad, but society is built for extroverts and there isn't a whole lot else that I can do about it.

This just takes so much unconscious effort, that I'm emotionally drained almost all the time. I also lash out more easily at my family because I'm not capable of putting up the act 24-7. I feel like the person that most people see me as is fake. He isn't even a real person, and yet I still wind up living as him.

<I don't mind when someone is socially awkward at a party or something, but I hate it when they act like this.

This was ******* beautiful and ******* relatable.
Why the **** would you risk your life and physical/mental well being going to some ****** rave when you can stay at home all cosy reading a book or having a friend over for a good snes session. I think there is more wrong with extroversion than introversion.

Does anybody else find it damn-near impossible to make eye contact with someone while speaking to them?

In my experiences I've found people just suck.   
I'm happy finding one or two people who also believe everyone else sucks.

this. i hate going out sometimes. i wouldn't necessarily classify myself as an introvert anymore, but sometimes i really dread the idea of going out. i've gotten to the point where i can at least somewhat enjoy being in the company of a large group, but after a party that i attend for two hours i generally feel like sleeping for two days. luckily i found a large group of friends who i can act like a dumbass around and be accepted for it. but... sometimes it's a lot worse than it used to be. when i was strictly an introvert, being alone never bothered me. now i just get lonely as **** despite the fact that i know that if i go out i'll have a ****** time because i won't be able to focus on anything except how much i want to be home. which is basically the worst feeling ever. i can spend all day with every friend i have and when i get home at midnight, i'll feel lonely and hated because no one's talking to me. even though i know damn well that i'm too tired to hang out with them or even talk to them. as a result, my emotions are just generally confused as **** 90% of the time.

This is very accurate towards me, but im not an introvert as i dont get exhausted around people. i tend to like attention, but only if it starts out positive and people show and interest in who i am. This is why i dont like hanging out with mutal friends since they dont care who i am, they are only there for Our mutal friend.

i like people, as long as they dont ignore me. So i can be a very social person, but only to those close to me.

i admit i don't even try sometimes but this is how i feel when i do, I hate it when a conversation seems forced.

Being alone is lonely, but I can't complain, I enjoy the silence, in fact it's too loud as it is, however,

I don't really get people who can't talk to other people or enjoy themselves, I was always surrounded by friends, even though I was mostly bored by them. Getting along with people is super easy, and some people are fun, some more than others.

On the same token parties are boring and too loud as **** . Nothing like chilling by the campfire or simply hanging out with a few close friends or love interests.

The worse thing is when people judge you, as if they know what's best for you, how you feel, or what you need. It's ******** .
