I have been accused of being incredibly clinical and robotic in the past. I can now reliably fake the necessary body language and micro expressions well enough to appear more normal, if still reserved and cool (and not the "cool dude" kind of cool). Even my wife sometimes has to ask me for clarification of my emotional state and she's known me for a decade and a half now. It does seem to make it hard for most people to become my friends. I have many friendly acquaintances. I am okay with having few friends though. While I am an ambivert and genuinely crave and enjoy human interaction part of the time, social interaction still requires extra effort on my part unless it is with people who know and understand me well.

Hm.. I was told that I didn't have any emotions because I was born too small.. I think two month too soon, and was inside a small square Glass. I wasn't held by my mother, that why I didn't have any emotions.

My Mother was using excuse saying that its because I'm deaf and loner.. and that I was born without her holding me due to being too small and I had to live inside the square Glass.. -_-;

I told her that I think I'm Psychopath, but than she start telling me that I do feel sad if something happen to my Cat like if she got run over by car..

I guess that Cross out Psychopath part.. I'm trying to figured out why I'm like this.

Well, I noticed I'm too darn nice when it come to friends... But problems is everyone keep telling me that they're not good friends haha.

See right now, I'm at where I think I'm better off as a loner.. So if someone talk to me at the store I'll just say Hi or answered his/her questions and than move on..

Depends really, if they are someone who is just bad at expressing their feeling's then yes since friendship is all about being able to get to know someone and understand how they think. If someone is just incredibly unemotional about everything and doesn't even make an effort then no, I really can't be arsed with people like that.

Depends on whether or not they're a sociopath

if said person just happens to be guarded yes but otherwise no, I need people to show some sort of emotion so that I can get a read on them.
