I'm 26 year old black man and I'm very antisocial, I don't really have any close friends or anyone to hangout with or have anything in common with. I don't care if your black, white, Asian, etc. As long as you respect me and I'll respect you. I like to be friends with everyone

If you like to be friends with everyone, you're certainly not antisocial.
Maybe you haven't yet found your social group.

Welcome!

I'm myself fairly new here and still learning about this community. Some sections of these forums have different tones from others. I've found some sections where I'm more comfortable. I hope you'll find yours, too.

Hello. Don't worry about the anti social side. If you say something wrong one of the moderators will step in and let you know. Just chat away and enjoy.

Colour does not come into it. (We may occasionally say things without thinking and if we do please tactfully say "Hey. I am here you know!" :D ). Seriously though, you are most welcome!

Just type away and enjoy!

Antisocial is not the same as asocial. Asocial means lacking the motivation to be social. Antisocial is when a person behaves in ways that harm or lack consideration for the well-being of others.

Sorry for the explanation, but people saying antisocial when they mean asocial is a real pet peeve of mine.

I figured I wasn't opposed to people being social, I just seldom wanted to participate.

welcome. I like forums like this because it seems we focus more on the things we have as shared interests, shared ideas, shared experiences, etc. Its more about likenesses than differences. (for most of us!) Glad you are with us.
