I don't really understand why no one actually initiates conversations with me, they always just seem to talk to someone else near me but not actually me. All of my friends start discussions with my other friends and if I try and say something to them they give me a one-word response and then ignore me.
It's, I just, I don't really understand why and I really want someone to talk to me more. Am I just really uninteresting? But I doubt that, because people who I don't hang out with have long and interesting discussions with me. Strange, really.
Why don't my friends talk to me?
Am I just uninteresting? Is that why they prefer other people?
Why do they only give me short responses?
And I'm not stupid, I saw a woman in the past who told me communication techniques like asking them what they're interested in and teaching me about their body language, because I have a condition which makes social situations difficult for me.
Often hang out with them
Example, they just say 'yes yes' to what I say and then turn back to the person they were talking to, so it is futile to try and join an ongoing conversation because I'm not listened to, and conversations I start only last as long as there's no one else there. Does this just mean I'm not as important as other people?
This is a general thing and it has gone on for sooo long but I've just been getting upset about it lately so I decided to ask.
I live in England.
Actually, I changed my mind. Sometimes there are females but I don't know these females very well, I haven't talked to them a lot. They don't say anything to me at all. However, there are other girls who I know who talk to me all the time, it's just those ones that don't.
Funnily enough, I'm not actually unpopular or an outcast. In fact, the friend group that I hang out with are, what I can quote from another person, the 'outcasts' of our school year. I know almost everyone and am generally liked.
My friends occasionally say I'm girly because I have hair as long as a girl, they also look down upon me and speak in a patronising way to me occasionally (a lot of people speak that way to me but I get compliments for my hair every day even from strangers, it's just my friends that say I'm a girl for it).
