Why is it so hard to talk here?

For a “social site” alot of people seem really antisocial, except for those with a circle of friends.

Many of us are antisocial, rootless cosmopolitans!

@helenS Oh No not you I dont believe it .
I'm all talked out on this site.

@thinkingoutloud Yeah I can see why..
It can be a challenge, there’s lots of “interesting” characters around here, so you have to be willing to just consistently jump in by posting and/or answering and commenting until people get to know you. Sitting on the sidelines isn’t gonna work unless you happen to want to be more of an observer. And that’s fine too.

Yeah, I’ve been here a while on and off, but I don’t always see things I want to get involved in, but even when I do I’m not given much encouragement to continue doing so.

@OlderSometimesWiser Definitely not here as an observer, and question why I am here often enough to not be here too. I try to get involved but just feel like I won’t find what I’m looking for from my experience. When I was on EP, the original SW, my experience was entirely different, so that’s where my expectations come from I guess.
@DHggmu Yep, having those expectations is probably not helping your situation. Different times, mostly different site. Gotta be able to make the best of the here and now and decide if there’s enough here to make it worthwhile staying.

@OlderSometimesWiser Good advice, there’s a reason that I’m active for months at a time before leaving, it’s a vicious cycle. Thank you.

@jshm2 “You seem like the type of guy..” your entire comment is based off of zero information, considering you don’t know a thing about me, and you act like I was only talking about DMs..

You seem like the kinda guy who feels like a big man sat behind a computer screen.

I avoid politics and other controversial topics, and I usually keep quiet if I have nothing to add to the conversation. I do enjoy a lot of PMs with my old and new friends.

I think it is a matter of not having a formal education.
Sorry, but it's Reddit or Twitter to me, not a social site.

The site traffic has been reduced due to all the updates so that could be another reason why it feels like that
