Do you feel that you are social?

I talk way too much and am very social. I enjoy talking to other people as it’s always interesting.

I’m excellent socially in a small group of people.

I get a little skittish participating in a larger grouping, however.

I’m not very social at all. It’s difficult. I have a lot going on inside but talking is so hard for me. I’m trying to get better at it though.

You have excellent communication skills on this forum, I have found.

Sorry, who is that comment for? Sometimes it doesn’t show if you direct the comment to someone. If it’s for me- thank you, if it’s for someone else then- Aw😔

Sorry.

It was directed at @melmel7, but it also suits you as well! :sunny:

I’m not really social. I have no interest in talking to people or doing something with them.

I pressed the correct ‘reply direction’…but it doesn’t always seem to work.

I am definitely introverted and absolutely asocial irl. Online I’m more social. But this is the only website I regularly frequent.

Does that mean like talkative?

I can be social in the right setting. Here on this forum I feel extremely awkward
Hahaha ha.

But some rare times I do feel social.

Like on one or two of my mental health courses it all depends on whose around and how good I’m feeling in myself that day!

i’m not good at social skills. I’m awkward =p
i also don’t long for social interaction. I talk to my dad, my mum and sometimes my siblings but it’s hard for me to do as i feel lost in the conversation a lot…

Your story is very similar to mine

Before Sz/psychosis diagnosis I could be classed as introverted, but since onset I have become more sociable and now I’m definitely considered ‘extroverted’

I enjoy socialising with others, and I feel it energises me. I have no trouble initiating a conversation, and I have done so on many occasions, and made friends with a lot of people this way

I’m not very social. I’m always thinking about things but I have a hard time talking.

Not very. I used to be. These days I just spend time with family. When I lived on my own I saw friends sometimes but not often. I go through periods of time where I am reclusive. I’ve always done that. My teens and early 20’s was my most social period of time. I am for the most part reclusive.

how do you get by,im wondering.dont you have to interact to get a job.im not lucky i have to look for jobs in job centre.

I minimise my social contacts. But I like it when people send me a message on my birthday. Just knowing that people are still thinking of me is nice.
