I don't understand it. It's been a problem for me for years. It happens more with girls I meet than guys. This doesn't happen with every girl I meet, but once in a while I will meet a girl and give her the impression that I like her when I really don't. I don't know what it is I do. One person suggested I come off as way too nice to be genuine. I believe that's probably true to an extent. I have gone out of my way in the past to help people in ways that most normal people wouldn't ever attempt to help. My hope is that I will start a good friendship. Maybe I try too hard?
Tonight I was chatting with a group of people online. I didn't really know any of them, but I was hoping to simply chat and have a little fun as a result. It turned really ugly though, and this girl who seemed really nice to begin with slowly began to send a really negative vibe to me it seems. Her cousin was calling me a child molester for no reason that I can see at all. As his language got nastier, she didn't seem to care at all. When I tried to talk to her privately, she suddenly signed off (or blocked me; not sure which). It became obvious to me that they didn't like me.
I don't want to act like someone who can't make friends -- I've made many. I will admit that I have severe problems with trying to get to know people better though. This isn't just online, this is in real life too. I find it very depressing sometimes. If anything, I believe this issue is directly related to my poor social skills. I know I did nothing wrong to warrent the harshness that I came in contact with tonight, but I'm not even sure why I got it at all. Maybe they're just odd people, I don't know. I just wish more people understood me. I'm a pretty normal person (or at least that's what I believe!)
I might not even bother reading the comments to this post, because I can picture the type of comments I'm going to get from some people -- saying how there isn't a such thing as normal, or how I need to find a new group of people to socialize with. Those comments are exactly the kind of comments I don't want. Those comments are well-intentioned, but they get me a little mad. If I can't socialize with average everyday people, I'm an outcast. I refuse to be an outcast. Also, outcasts are usually very unsuccessful people in life. I'm not a weirdo, I just need better social skills is all.
