It's OK to not be social and not want to be social.

I say yes, but, I think that being social is both online and offline just because you're not face to face with someone doesn't mean you're not being social.

Yes, but not in the manner that insinuates a highly social life. The human race is a social species. An utter lack of socialization tends to compromise the human psyche. Hold on for a second....

Wilson! I'm sorry! I'm sorry, Wilson!

I think I hurt his feelings.

We don't have to be social to the point of hanging out with friends and family, but we do require some kind of human interaction every once in a while.

Your post stinks a bit of suppressed sadness. You might not mind it most of the time, but I'm sure you get these bouts of anxiety about not being more active and having more people you can relate to IRL. You should re-read your post with the understanding that if you feel a bit separate, chances are you won't meet many people you can bond with. What this means is that if you don't make the effort to meet anybody, your chances of finding people you enjoy being with become effectively null, so it's better to play the game and try to have fun while you're at it, in the hope of meeting people who'll become your real friends later on.


I see your point, so what your saying is I should at least try to meet people, otherwise my chance of finding other people is 0. Whereas if I try I have at least some chance. Thanks for the reasonable response and insight. Guess I need to re-read some of my other topics, because I think the meaning that I meant to go across has gotten a little skewed along the way, well thanks again for the help.

You're welcome, I'm very glad you found it to be useful advice. Basically, there are some people who can easily connect with others by virtue of their personality, others who can simply because they have very popular/widespread tastes. If you're not one of those people, you have to be pro-active and try to make connections of your own.

All the best, anyhow.

Yes....at least coming from MY perspective, in the Life in which I LIVE...I need to be Social. As tough and as ridiculously hard it is for Me to do so in real Life, what with Agoraphobia, Panic disorders; having to take Medication to make it through the Day...And when I force Myself out into a situation to try and get Myself out of My comfort zone, EVERYTHING "mentally" gets heightened that much more. I can see some People having trouble with the fact that I am Schooling to reach an MD in, of all things Psychiatry, and I Myself, having to take certain Psychiatric medications. I am SO GLAD that I have been paired up with a Professor who has some of the same Issues as Myself....It has certainly made Me feel less alone in the entire situation. We do what We have to do. And isn't that just usually the way that most things turn Out...I'm studying to become a Psychiatrist; One who deals, and helps Others with problems and situations that may be going on within THEIR Minds and Bodies...I HAVE THE ANSWERS OF WHAT TO DO CONCERNING MANY THINGS MEDICALLY, but I Myself am literally unable to take and apply My OWN advice. There is NOTHING I like more than trying to understand exactly what is up...What is going on within Someone's Mind to make them feel, or act the certain ways that they may feel, do or act. I can help these others, but as for Myself...I'm just a ridiculous "Work in Progress"...

But for People like Myself...Those who DO have problems with their Anxiety, and Socialphobia; the whole 9 Yards...YES. I NEED to be Social. Or else, it would be like, I would symbolically be giving up on Myself....The inner Me. The Me that yearns for Human contact...being able to Speak and share with Other's, as things were meant to be...Oh, how I wish I had the "Alpha mindset"...Where I'm just able to go about being Myself, doing whatever I like, saying whatever to Whoever...whenever. It must be a "freeing" feeling to be able to ignore the negative all around You, and just BE YOU. Everything socially comes to You completely naturally...You have Girls that are all over You, thinking, "Oh what an awesome Guy! He plays by His own rules!" Ahhh, but sadly, I'm not Alpha. I'm not Beta, or even Gamma. I'm simply Justin.

Maybe One Day, I can feel that Freedom. But Yes, Social...If it wasn't for this Website, I would have little else to turn to. I don't much mess with Facebook anymore. I was given a gift...and a curse, when it comes to being able to Write and manipulate Vernacular in the way that You want it to be. If only I could express Myself VOCALLY as I do through the typing of a Keyboard, or the Writing of a Pen on a pad of Paper...Yes, it DOES allow Me to express Myself...Wholly, it does...But, the problem is...We are a Vocal species...For People like Myself, I would have to come across Someone who doesn't care to Read what I have to Write out. Of course not everyone is going to do that. But when You DO find Someone who will...I'm sure they are Special in SOME form or fashion. Much Love, Crunchyroll. <3

I enjoy being social, but only in small doses. I'm really introverted, so I spend about 90% of my free time either alone or with a single friend.

I think I need to be social since I admit I am not very good at handling situations and know I might need to """learn"""" to know how to be around as knowing the right thing to say with others. Plus, I like people, talking to them as well. Always been curious and wanting to know things about them.

I really really enjoy socializing with people. As long as we share some common ground I can talk for a long time. I thoroughly enjoy sitting and having a few drinks while watching anime or a movie or something of that nature, or playing video games for hours on end. As much as I enjoy my alone time I really really miss when I don't have any social time for a while. I've recently grown apart from my friends and I basically have nobody to hangout with anymore so I've kind of learned how to keep myself entertained, but I really do enjoy spending time with people. Unfortunately I don't have anybody to spend the time with XD Oh well. But I've learned how to be social via my job as well. I used to be very shy, now I'm one of the first to speak up to a new person I just met. That I'm very thankful for, but the lack of social time outside of my job can get depressing at times.

I think everybody needs at least some form of socialization.
