Yes, I would say that I am quite socially awkward. I do have lovely friends, who have stuck around for more than a decade, and with whom I’d love to share several more decades. Though, I’ve also lost contact with some friends over the years, despite my best intentions to stay in touch. I say that I find it difficult to form meaningful friendships. I think that it’s because I have a fairly closed personality, in that I wouldn’t open up and readily talk about my inner feelings to just anyone. It takes a long to warm up. This has protected me from humiliating situations, though probably it has also prevented me from making some friends.
No, I wouldn’t say that I have any brain or developmental disorders. Probably, I wouldn’t cope a single week in the area that I work in, if I wasn’t fully in control of my faculties. I’d say that I just have certain personality traits which don’t make me a particularly pleasant person at first glance. Though, looks are deceiving, and this can work either ways.
