wow, i am not alone out there. I **know** i am different. I spent years trying to be that person I'm not... now no more. There are very few if any ppl who have my interests in classical music, the paranormal, etc. I find ppl draining too...

I avoid people because if it. I deleted my facebook because I felt everyone seemed fake. Most of the "friends" that I had on there I hadn't seen in years and had no plans to ever see them IRL.
There are only a small number of people (less than 5) that I let in. I have one best friend and aquaintances but the only people I feel 100% comfortable around are DH and DS.
Being in a room full of people, socialising, always feels awkward for me.
And I'm completely happy this way! I don't want or need anyone else in my life. I'm older now, I know how hard I am on myself when it comes to my internal dialogue.. so I really don't bother with people anymore as I just end up withdrawing from the friendship anyway, due to not feeling comfortable....
But when I meet people I actually do click with, I'm a loyal friend for life.

I've been told I appear to try hard to fit in (does that make me a try hard? Lol) but I don't feel like I'm different, really. I feel like I fit in. But maybe I stick out like a sore thumb and I'm ignorant to the fact that I don't belong? LOL.
Maybe that's why I'm such a loser???

My heart pounds, even when I catch up with my best friend of over 10 years! After the first 15 minutes or so I calm down, but I think I'll always be this way. Wine helps! lol..
It can be utterly depressing and exhausting feeling like the odd one out

I used to feel like that but not anymore. I came to the conclusion that I had social anxiety which began in my teens. Once I accepted my oddities/differences it became easier to see other peoples as well and then my barriers dropped and I have become comfortable and my friendships are more open and plentiful. Funnily enough people seem to appreciate my differences and have been happy to celebrate them with me (if that makes sense).

Yep I totally relate. I just got home from a mums group party for all our littlies 2nd birthdays. I think I spoke 5 words the whole time. Didn't help that noone touched the food I bought (everyone else's got eaten) and I misread a text saying we were no longer doing a lucky dip present thing and instead had to get a small gift for each child, so I only turned up with one present

Yep, thats me in a nutshell, thankgod I'm not the only one, although if we were all in the same room together all feeling socially awkward, I'd still feel like I was the ONLY one acting and feeling this way. DH is the only person to see the true me, farts and all, I don't even let my guard down with my family.
