Are you a social person? Do you avoid speaking to other people? Would you rather be by yourself or with others?

I myself am not very social. If I know the person (or on the rare occasion that we 'click'), then I'm more open and will talk to them. Otherwise...leave me alone, please. Sometimes (like in a classroom), I'm forced into being around people I don't know. Once I'm used to/comfortable around them, I'm more likely to strike up a conversation or make a joke. Other people generally don't try to converse with me, though, which I'm fine with. Whereas, on the internet, I'm relatively social, though still socially awkward. x:

In general, I often prefer to be alone. If I have an opportunity to see friends, I certainly will do it. But if it's a matter of being around family, I sometimes would just rather be alone with my thoughts.
I can't think of a good signature.

I am very anti-social. I only speak when spoken to. I rarely engage a conversation. But it's more different on the internet, since I have a lot more common interest with them. (Example is PokeCommunity). If I know you very well, and we got lots of stuffs in common I would start a conversation with you. BUT don't expect it to be long x)

    I'm generally a warm person, but I experience these cycles in which I'll be tremendously sociable for a while, then completely isolate myself, becoming weary from even small talk. It's a nuisance to me and my loved ones, but part of being bi-polar. I'm learning how to get through those states with coping mechanisms and medication.

    I'm not very social. I've always been relatively quiet, lol. I have social anxiety though, so even when I want to talk and have friends and such, it's really difficult for me. I tend to use comedy as a way to break the ice in a general setting, like a classroom, so that people know, "oh she's funny and seems nice, i should talk to her" and then people can approach me instead of vice versa. I'm much better when spoken to by someone else than me trying to talk lmao. It comes out a messsss. I also can't look people in the eye. It makes me uncomfortable. Sometimes I try if I feel like I need to (interview or talking to someone important), but I feel really weird doing it and can't keep it up for more than a few seconds.

    Online, I think I'm much better socially. No looking into eyes, no stumbling over's just much easier for me.

    Overall though, I'm not opposed to talking to people or anything. I'm nice, promise!

      I'm more social in real life than on the internet because I care more about making a fool of myself on the internet. It's just easier for me to walk up to someone and greet them than it is to stare at that text box and think about what to type. One day I'll get over this because it's kind of stupid.

        I'm only into talking to people if it's interesting and can contribute to my knowledge and wisdom bank. Although I'm into nonsense jokes to brighten up my day.

          I am not a social person at all, I hate it when people force me to talk to them. I am more social on forums that IRL.

            I am not really social person whether is it on the internet or IRL, but I am also a very warm person, if you come and talk to me of course, I am more sociable on real life, unlike many of you, but I am unsociable on internet, but if hit me a VM, I will reply them, cos I am friendly like that.

              I'm very sociable but only with my friends, and I can talk forever xD but if I don't know you, you have to talk to me first before we can be friends, occasionally I do talk to a random person xD I'm shy, but very sociable anyways xD

              I'm not really a social person, I try to be one, but I get overcome with fear and stop trying to interact with people. I literally hate being by myself, but ironically that is what I'm doing most.

              I'm not very social at all. Ever since I was 12 I took a sharp turn into being an introvert, and it's only been going deeper in ever since. I only talk if I need to or if someone approaches me for conversation. That's pretty much it.

                I'm generally asocial (which is what a lot of people mean when they say anti-social). I don't have an interest in being with people since it does nothing for me — I don't feel good, I don't enjoy it, so I don't bother.

                  I am really socially awkward in real life but a bit less in the internet but still awkward nonetheless.Mostly because the people i know IRL don't too much on common in with me and the fact that i am mostly quiet.In the internet its easier to find someone you have a lot in common with but i still don't converse very well.

                  Although I have a few friends irl, I prefer to be alone most of the time. I tend to be extremely shy around strangers and people I don't know, but I do break the ice sometimes. But most of the time irl, I'm usually found in my own little world. xD

                  I'm usually the quiet one in the group...but I can blossom. I just gotta have the confidence! xD

                  It's weird, because while I don't really choose to go out on social outings and I like to spend a lot of time to myself when I'm with other people I'm the life of the party I suppose? I always have something to say and I will honestly talk about anything to anyone, I really enjoy talking to other people and spending time with them. I'm quite confident socially, I suppose that's more because I don't really get as embarrassed as a lot of people in "embarrassing situations" so I feel more able to just carry on with whatever I was doing without worrying too much about other people's thoughts on the occurrence.

                  I'm much easier to talk to the more you know me though. While I'm more than happy to talk to people I don't know the conversation is a lot freer if I'm friends with you, or have at least known you a while.

                    I am probably the most socially awkward this person in the world. Ok, exaggerating, but I'm really antisocial. I have two or three friends in high school. One started talking to me because I helped him in latin, and the other two because they felt sorry for me. Surprisingly, I was extremely popular at my old school, but that was a "gifted school" so we were all innocent and immature (save two people). There, I could be myself. My jokes were funny. Now, all jokes told in my high school are extremely perverted to the point where I don't even understand. And it's an all boys school. I sat alone for awhile during lunch because I was to scared to sit with anyone, fearing they would try to start a conversation and, as is usually the case, I would have no idea how to respond. I usually stay away from people because I just don't know how to talk. Plus, I'm not into girls, don't know the basic...stuff...and to be honest, I refuse to look at people when they kiss (all boys school, so that's not a problem there, but just to show my immaturity). So pair that with my inability to converse and there you have it. Me. Oh jeez, looking back, that sounded very self pitiful. That's not what I wanted at all XD anyway, sorry for the long, self pitiful-full rant. I'm done
                    Edit: hah, I have better friends on here and the world beyblade organization than in high school XD.
                    I like Sandshrews. A lot. I am Sandshrews number 1 fan. And don't you deny it.

                    With others!

                    I used to be incredibly anti-social and I really preferred being by myself where I couldn't feel people judging me. Then I got over myself and started liking people

                    lol I'm a very social person, tbh. I prefer to spend my day with my friends rather than to be alone in a corner, like that Forever Alone dude on 9GAG. I'm quite popular at school, and there's never a time when I'm separated from my gals.
