Is it normal that i have no interest in forming social relationships?
I've just never understood what people get out of it. It brings me neither joy nor fulfillment. It's not as though I /hate/ people or anything--folks can be truly wonderful and inspiring sometimes. And I need people to do the things for me that I can't do. But whenever I socialize, for any length of time, either with strangers, people I know, or family, I immediately feel so tired and want it to be over so I can go and be alone again. It feels mentally exhausting for me to even have that shallow, 3-second kind of "Hey, how are you?/ Good, you?/ Good," interaction. I just spew platitudes and mechanical responses until it's finally appropriate to say goodbye. And I never feel lonely. Like, at all. Solitude is the only place where I feel at all comfortable and like myself. Is there something wrong with me?
