Totally! I don't understand it at all. Sometimes (it sounds bad I know) it feels like maybe they are of a different species.

Hey -- My issue has been that I often get overwhelmed with friendships and closeness overall, generally resulting in me pushing people away. I remember all the passive-aggressively harmful things I have said to people that kind of announce the message, "get away from me," and looking back ...

I have felt this way before, but not as extremely. I used to barely talk. I conditioned myself to talk more. Then I started talking too much and it was even physically painful and awkward to have that much to say (it has been a weird phase so far). Now I want to go back, or at least back to somethin...

Hi SparrowBlue -- I agree with the other poster - this does sound like depression. I know that me telling you that doesn't lift your spirits, but it's probably decent concrete information for you to research and try to get help for. Unfortunately, I think sometimes these feelings can take a long tim...

Hi - So, I'm experiencing this awkward situation, some of the awkwardness being caused by Asperger ways and such. I am a music student and I have an old piano professor and his wife who have been mentors to me for a few years. I live in a city area for university, and they life about 45 minutes away...

Hi - I think that could work. I mean I'm in a music building. Seems like the best possible place to find that sort of connection. But I think I lack the social skills and the trust element. Part of that is reasonable -- people have been total assholes to me for years and years now. Part of it is unr...

I'm sorry about this. That sounds really stressful and sad. I agree with another post on here -- maybe you can call them or e-mail them. It's possible to make more friends where you are, of course. It might take some time though. How did you meet your other friends? Maybe you can use a similar appro...

Hi - I think it's very uncomfortable, too. Maybe you can find a compromise. So, if you see someone you are drawn to -- you have common interests, or they are nice or funny -- you can smile and wave once and a while. Otherwise, maybe you can look down. It's all about balancing your energy levels and ...

Hi all - I'm a music student and have been playing instruments for my entire life. I've been composing quite a lot for a long time now, with success in college. Even though I do well in the classical world, I have a serious instinct that it isn't my real place. I know that what I want is to be aroun...
