One of DH’s aunts. She has never liked me and has always made that super clear. I usually get along with everyone since I’m pretty quiet and I’m always nice to everyone.. and that’s why she doesn’t like me actually haha. She says she can’t stand that I’m “so nice”. Since I know she really doesn’t like me, I feel uncomfortable around her. She usually likes to pick apart everything I say so I just try to not talk to her ๐Ÿ™‚ Darling Husband doesn’t really like her either, so we try to avoid seeing her unless it’s necessary.

As an introvert who has suffered with social anxiety, I can honestly say there are only two human beings I am completely comfortable around, my fiancee and my grandmother. I am somewhat comfortable around my BFF, in that trust her. Outside of that, I pretty much walk around in a glass box.

Ugh…. my dad…

He and my mom have been divorced for awhile now, but there is still a lot of tension. I hardly ever see him…maybe once a year and he has a whole other family. I don’t know what to say to him whenever I meet him and I sort of feel like he is a stranger now.

When he calls this is how the conversation ends…

” Love you, daughter”

“……..you too…dad…”

*click*

Sad? Probably…but this is something I have been dealing with for years and it no longer upsets me.

@greenidlady:  +1 

I am only 100% comfortable with Fiance. I can get mostly comfortable around close friends and family, but that’s about it. Most of the time, I try to be on best behavior mode.

An old college friend of DH’s makes me super uncomfortable. (I am fortunate that her husband makes HIM uncomfortable and that they live far away, so we haven’t seen them in years.) She is from a wealthy family and is highly educated, and I feel stupid and socially awkward in her presence. And then I feel bad about feeling that way because she has never been anything but nice to me. ๐Ÿ˜›

@nantes14:  Yeah, I just feel some sort of indifference towards him I guess. Saying I love you to him, just seems strange…

One of my FI’s friends. Thought I guess “technically” he’s my friend as well. I met this guy, let’s call him X, and he introduced Fiance and I. X had feelings for me but they were not reciprocated, and I ended up dating someone that wasn’t X or my Fiance at first (this guy was also a friend of theirs, let’s call him Y). Then, when my Fiance and I started dating and got engaged, X got super creepy. He keeps making comments to all our friends that I was just dating Y to get to him, and that clearly this could have been his wedding if he had wanted it to be. He just keeps acting like he has some kind of “right” to me because he met me first, and it’s just freaking awful.

The first thing he said to Fiance when he found out we were engaged was, “You know she slept with Y, right?” (obviously my Fiance knew; everyone knew; I dated Y for a long time).

Gross gross gross….

@nantes14:  This one coworker of mine that I used to be friends with and then we had a falling out a few years ago. I didn’t see it coming, she was a total cow to me and just stopped wanting to be friends. To this day I am not sure why. I’m civil around her but it’s just uncomfortable dealing with her. Luckily our paths don’t cross that often even though we’re in the same office.

Not a specific person, but when I’m at work and a group of loud guys come in, I get super tense. Doesnt matter what race or age they are.

@greenidlady:  

+1. Introvert also and I’m pretty much an onion. Making friends feels like taking off layers one by one, and can be almost painfully uncomfortable. “Being myself” is always difficult because, well, onion. Only my fiance knows my onion core ๐Ÿ™‚

 

@nantes14:  

I’ve noticed there’s some people who I really can’t get through a conversation without a resounding amount of awkwardness. This is often because of insurmountable differences in personality/opinion. I usually react by being the superhero of awkward.

Two of the custodians at work.  They’re older men who I swear undress me with their eyes.

@june_mantis:  Yeah, I can talk to strangers, especially in the business world or when I’m trying to make a purchase. However, trying to mingle and make friends in a social setting is a whole other ball game. I’m not actually afraid of people, there are just very few who I’ll let my guard completely down around.
