What's strange, is that I write easily and I'm not shy at talking either (without being overly talkative), but nonetheless I don't attract/ am not attracted by most people,somehow I may lack social skills, but I'm not trying to develop them either.
But I know body language is important, and as I am tall and slightly limping since a few months, doesn't help either (scare of the boogeyman?)

Why do you think they hate you? How do you know that? Me....I have no idea what people think!!! Don't really care because I'm pretty straightforward so either you like me or you don't, take it or leave it, but I'm pretty friendly and outgoing...so I guess they must like me...??

Very similar to you.

I am a quiet guy unless I choose to go out of my way to talk.

Most of the time I keep to myself.

When with others I like to show off my talent of making people laugh. Like this past weekend I went up to the ticket booth and asked the lady, "So...what are you in for? What did you do?" She laughed.

No one approaches me. I look mean or something. However, I can make the grumpiest people smile.

People have told me that upon first meeting me they thought I was shy, stuck-up, weird, mean, gay, scary. :/ I tend to be quiet around people I don't know, and especially in places where there are a lot of people and apparently people got the wrong idea. And I've had a lot of people think I'm a lesbian just because of the way I dress sometimes, or because I wear combat boots.

It often annoys me how people jump to conclusions before even talking to me.

I really could care less what peoples opinions are about me. I'm me and I'm not about to change just to fit in with the in-crowd so to speak.They either accept me for who I am and all my flaws or not at all.
