So if you are on my MSN list, that is not a phrase that you are not familiar with.
I realised that the best way to describe me or characterise me is by putting contrasting words together. Like sociable and anti-social, pessimistic and optimistic. Yups.
But let’s explore the combination of sociable anti-social.
You can’t describe me as anti-social because I am not. On the other hand, you can’t say that I am sociable or friendly! Because if you were to ask around, there will be people who will laugh in your face and say I am downright scary *roars*
In general, I take a very long time to warm up to people. Most people. Sometimes, I just don’t feel like socialising or talking. It’s not you, it’s me. So, that’s the anti-social part.
But there are days, I am so sociable and in your face and bright and friendly and noisy, you will be begging for me to shut up. Even if I don’t know you, you will be wishing that I shut up.
