Hast thou never heard of Amazon Prime?... Or for that matter the internet? Pretty much any store that sells food will bring it to you.

In terms of talking to complete strangers I suck at starting conversations I never know what to do. Plus after a while I just get physically exhausted of talking or maybe I just try to hard in keeping a decent conversation idk.

I've always liked socialising but over the years I've some how ended up being a social recluse with only a handful of people I talk to on a regular basis. Makes me kinda miserable.

Personally, I'm good at seeming sociable and even charismatic, but I'm certainly not very gregarious. Socializing is drainng, to me, and I'm known to commonly crash after only four hours at a family get-together. The early mornings reveal my true nature; a cranky and reclusive bitch.

I can keep up a somewhat limited facade in well structured situations... for a bit.

I've only become aware of what a social smile is in recently. I was always able to read well enough to detect them, but I didn't know what they were so they creeped me out. I still don't like them. I respect the courtesy, but I would much rather they reserve their smile for when emotion calls for it?

My social skills will one day become legend.

After the Fall, mothers will crack open yellowed textbooks and say, 'beware! beware! be not this! be not!'

I'm somewhere between. I enjoy socializing with some people (not all), but I can't keep eye contact. And after being called annoying so many times in the past, I have internalized that I'm a burden to everyone, so I tend to avoid starting conversations and second guess messaging, texting, or calling anyone about anything. I'm definitely at a state of mind where other people need to initiate conversations with me or I'll think that I'm just annoying to them.

Unfortunately, typing on the forums and debating issues I'm interested is completely separate to being able to initiate and maintain social relationships with other people. Let alone speak. It's hundreds of times worse in person--for multiple reasons.

I can pretty much talk to anyone who wants to talk, but once they start on something really out there, my brain just stops working, and that's my cue to smile and walk away.
