Do you avoid people?
June 15, 2017 6:58am CST
I am not a very friendly person, and an extreme personal one. I keep happy to myself. Though i have few friends, and real close ones, but i am not much into making new friends. I don't like visiting people other than family and my close friends. It's not that i hate people, but i just don't feel so ease with them. I hate getting caught into conversations. I would rather take a different route if i see some acquaintances passing through the usual one. I love to keep to myself. Though I am working and i have good work relation with my colleagues. We talk and joke too at times. But i still keep to my closed loop. Can anyone relate to this?

I am a friendly person in contrast to you. But I also choose the friends I would always like to be with. I can easily make friends however, after I have get to know some of them to be gossips, I avoid them already. I hate gossips. Who knows when I turn my back, i would be the center of their gossip.
That's true with people who gossip, they don't even spare their so called friends. I pity such people. Rather than concentrating on their own issues, they waste their time. I always wish i was a little more friendlier than I am. Though people i m close with are really very close. But i can't fit in a new place. :)
I am exactly like you. I prefer to be around those people who are I am used to. I don't like to go to new places and initiate conversations. If i happen to see someone I know to prevent myself from being caught up in converstions like you said I will try to avoid the person. I am very reserved too

I think I can. Unlike you though, I don't think I have good friends, even a few. My closest and oldest one lives 9,000 miles away from me. My boyfriend is my only friend and personal confidante in this place. I have a few acquaintances that I hangout with from time to time but nobody that I can call my best friend. There are times that I wish I am more outgoing and have a large group of friends, but like you I am not very good in making new friends. I have a very busy life at the moment and my interests for people my age is quite more serious and so it is a challenge to even find a common ground to bond in. I am not sad and lonely though. But it would be nice to have a separate group of friends other than those of my boyfriend's. Not that he has a lot to begin with, as well.
