Like the title says I know this is a bit off-topic, but this is my favourite site for advice and mature responses, and it may get a few people saying they have the same situation. This has been on my mind lately, and I am noticing it more and more. It could be because of me, or is it other people? I have no idea. The issue is simple, communicating with people. The same happens on nights out, wherever I am, even with friends. I feel as though if I want to talk to people I have to talk to them first, organise to do stuff with them or they wouldn't ask me. I know I sound like a loner lol, but as soon as I talk to them they're fine, or up to do stuff. So what is it? Why do I always have to initiate conversation with people, am I being paranoid, or perhaps something about first-impressions I give off. Does anybody else share similar stories (now they mention it) or perhaps in reverse, do people usually wait to be talked to rather than talk to.
