I Am Socially Awkward

I’m not much of a talker, I’ll listen and I’ll ask about others but I really dread talking about myself.
Sometimes I feel like others are just so turned off by my conversation, it’s as if they tune out whenever I begin to speak and I’d rather not feel insignificant or regrettable about what I’ve said.

It’s not that I enjoyed talking very much to begin with but it’s all I can think about lately. It’s very discouraging when I see others puzzled by what I talk about.
I’m bothered. I didn’t care so much about what others thought before, but being sociable and “interesting” seems to bring a huge advantage to those who do it without thought.
I don’t know why it’s so difficult for me. I try to throw myself out there, but I just don’t feel it in me.

But I hate being shy so much. People assume I’m a bitch, and they’re not totally wrong but I just suck so bad at socializing.

Those who know me say I don’t talk enough to allow others to get to know me, but I’m just so awkward. I wouldn’t want to talk to me either.

I think you may be around the wrong crowd. It is kinda hard to find like minded people. I feel the same way about feeling like ppl are just tuning u out. Maybe its cuz we're deep thinkers and most people are shallow and on the surface. They can't vibe with us like we would like to.
I'm quiet until i find someone i can relate with, then i go to the extreme and talk ALOT. I just never had many ppl to talk to.

That is the advantage of being attractive.
You don’t have to make small or large talk.
[@3118,Pfuzylogic] It always puts me to shame when it’s said that “ugly” people have to depend on their personalities. Soon enough I’ll have neither of the two.

I hope you don’t feel driven to shame by what I stated. Ugly people depending on their personalities was framed by you but I can see somehow how you derived it.

Concerned about your own personality, if you are trying to meet men that are more driven by you more that your sexual appeal would compel a self examination on what you need for personal growth.
I am not trying to make you defensive by my comment.
