Should I be concerned that I am generally uninterested in social contact?
To be clear, I’m not antisocial or asocial. I’m not hostile toward other people. In fact, I’m pretty outgoing and kind toward people in the now. Face to face, in person. People seem to like me and speak favorably of me. I can be talkative and don’t really avoid people.
My issue (perhaps) is that I don’t put a lot of effort into nourishing current relationships and no effort into making new ones.
I dislike speaking on the phone so rarely call anyone. I’m not on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram. I never think to go visit anyone. I don’t send cards or notes and rarely eMail or text. I rarely make plans to go out and have one or two friends independent of my marriage – and I’m lucky if I see them once a year.
If I bump into you or see you at work or some get together my wife agrees to, I’m great. But if not, it’s basically out-of-sight, out-of-mind.
I much prefer to spend my time hanging with my wife and daughter, reading, listening to music, working, or just being alone. I love to be alone.
But I’m a bit concerned this might bite me in the ass someday. Can I change? Should I?
