Face to face please.

Why am I so bad at communication if it isn't face to face? I've been called a "social beast" by a friend who had some social anxiety problems, and took the role of Social Director (guy who plans parties, invites everyone, dishes out info as needed, etc.) of my group of friends. I don't have any problems dealing with people in real life.

I recently moved to another state and stopped talking to anyone back home...not because I'm angry, or think I'm better off without's just that I don't know how to talk to people unless I'm speaking to them in person. I don't call, text, e-mail or even facebook. Hell if i get a message while I'm on facebook I usually log off and if they ask I tell them I left it up while I was afk.

Anyone else have this problem? Or is it just me slowly becoming a luddite?


  1. Hah, for most people, it's the complete opposite. Who really needs all of these social networking sites anyway...

  2. I'm really bad at face to face communication. It sucks.

  3. Wow, I'd think that's very rare for someone to have trouble with. I never have my face-to-faces work out as well as I'd like, but it's gotten better over the past few weeks.

  4. Take a public speaking class where they make you stand in front and give speeches. Then take another one. Then another. Keep doing it until you speak in public like a boss. Seriously. Confront your fears FACE TO FACE.
