The big reason why many of us don't seem to have social lives is because..

Your average person today which passes as 'normal' is anything but normal and it just seems everyone has gone insane, I think we're the normal ones to be honest that still appreciate things like friends, family and staying true to our principles. We are good hearted people surrounded by zombies, look into the eyes of these people, they are dead inside. It scares me tbh, while I read everyone's posts on here I get the feeling of kindheartedness from people that are only asking for a fair shot in life.

Thinking that every one else is a zombie probably doesn't help with having a social life.

Re: The big reason why many of us don't seem to have social lives is because..

I know what the OP is saying. Only I see them as cyborgs, connected by brain waves to the rectangular thing they're holding in their hand and can't stop staring at all day. I'm pretty anti-social myself, but then I still would like to have friends, too. Paradoxal? You bet. But, such is life.

There just aren't many people that I really, really like - or trust for that matter. ADHD or not.

As for how you "see" someone, as long as you're not going up to them and screaming "ARE YOU NOTHING BUT A ZOMBIE?" I say you're as entitled to your opinion as anyone else.

I personally don't see everyone as Zombies. If anything, I kind of feel as though I'm the weird one.. I'm constantly living in a day dream.... Sigh

We just have to not be as comfortable , and unsure of ourselves. The rule that helps is that if someone isn't willing to make the round trip it's company not worth keeping.

Probably because I'm pushy, loud, obnoxious and the best dancer. And I smile too much and laugh too hard.
