Recently I've been making an effort to be more self aware of who I connect with and choose friendships wisely, and I've come to realize that I have a very strong preference who are fairly reclusive and averted to the social norm. This is no longer a product of angst, I have evolved into having this preference and am pretty satisfied with it.
I guess what I'm getting at here is I'm curious about the reasoning behind why others feel this way and how other reclusive people conduct themselves socially.
Any insight is appreciated.

Usually recluses avoid other people generally speaking, so I am not sure what you mean.

Nothing wrong really, but you are probably being extremely picky about selecting friends, so how do you do it? Do you find them through your hobbies or personal interests?

Just to give you an idea, I have found close friends through school and work over the years.

Rcsligar..welcome to the world of the non conforming..... reclusive really, only from societies expectations or what the mass deems is the norm..reclusive people conduct themselves socially when they have to, when it's the only way to get things done, when there's no escaping it....then they're out, and back to being their real eccentric selves....I find eccentricities are very colorful to me....and I love color.

I congratulate you on your path to self discovery. Just try to remember that the other end of the spectrum 'extrovert' or gregarious type needs your respect and kindness as well. Ying and Yang.

Remember, the quiet ones are always the most dangerous. We are always plotting and thinking....

ummm,... I find the reclusive or introvert to be more self-reliant. While they are not the life of the party, they do not demand maintenance nor attention. If I'm bored, an extrovert can provide the cure. However, after much experience, I will settle any day with an introvert for less drama so I can sleep and rest easy with a predictable tomorrow.

I could write a book about all the crazy, creepy, weirdos whom have ruined my life and carriers. It may be a curse known only to me and maybe a good start for a new thread. I just don't know how we have come to build cities and modern inventions when 9 of 10 people are simply too eccentric to get along with.
