Nothin' wrong with being alone.

Posted on

1. We stay away from the pack, and socialise less.

Warner Bros.

Why you think we do this: Because we're just not good at socialising. We're awkward.

Why we actually do this: We actually enjoy people. Just not all people, and we're less likely to stick around for the shittier people.

2. We spend a lot of our time being quiet.

Why you think we do this: Probably because we're upset about something.Why we actually do this: We're relaxed. We know we don't need to talk when we don't have anything to say.

3. We can't hold a conversation.

FOX

Why you think we do this: Poor social skills.

Why we actually do this: We're probably just bored. It's OK to be bored. You should try it.

4. We don't have any friends.

BBC

Why you think we do this: Because you don't think we have friends.

Why we actually do have friends: We have friends. Admittedly a lot of the time we aren't surrounded by a #squad. That doesn't mean we don't have a #squad. It's just a different #squad. A more separated #squad.

5. We spend a lot of time in our room, alone.

Comedy Channel

Why you think we do this: Because we’re sad? Because we hate you? I don’t know.

Why we actually do this: Because we like reading or chilling out every now and then.

6. We never come out to bars.

NBC

Why you think we do this: We can't be bothered.

Why we actually do this: OK, you're kinda right on this one. We're probably just not wearing pants.

7. We don't like drinking.

Why you think this: Because we never come out.

Why we actually do this: You're just wrong. Everyone likes drinking. Come on. But drinking with the right people beats drinking with the wrong people, and that's not a risk we're willing to take.

8. We're not great at greeting others / shaking hands.

Why you think this: Because we're awkward and the thought of touching another person sends harsh shivers down our spines.

Why we actually do this: Because shaking hands is weird? So is hugging someone you've never met before? Think about it.

9. We ignore calls and texts.

BRAVO

Why you think we do this: Because we don't often reply to attempts to get us out of the house, or hangout with your cousin.

Why we actually do this: Because it's 2015 and literally no one has time for voicemails. Wake up.

10. We're rude.

Why you think this: Because often times we won't be the most social or great at interaction. Sometimes our shyness can be overwhelming.

Why we're actually like this: Sometimes it is because we're shy, or misunderstood. But sometimes we are just being rude. Sorry.
