That's funny, usually most folks see it the other way around. What makes you say that, mate?

Yes

I'm known as the quiet guy at my work and I spend all my spare time online pretty much.
I had a hard time in school due to always wanting to be alone. 
If someone has the same strange intrests as me I probs would talk to people IRL.

I can chat with other people if they're the one to initiate it. Consequently it's still not uncommon for me to spend an entire weekend with little to no face-to-face interactions with others.

That's what I meant by most people beying weird, I meant we don't share the same strange interests

I kind of was in the states. My job enabled me to by working from home on a computer during night shifts (teaching English to kids in China). But I ate out regularly and had no anxiety in those kind of situations, plus I had one IRL friend I often hung out with so it seems like too strong a term.

Not as much in Japan. Not only do I have school and work but there's great stuff to do here for an otaku who can speak the language! But I still am kind of a loner, always have been.

I already been felt like that but it is not my choice for years even when I moved out once back in 2014, I kinda wish I would have joined the rest of the NEETs already, I just do not have the guts in a long time until I found the place to stay three years after that.

Probably, though I do go outside when my friends invite me. Otherwise I just sit inside in front of my PC.

K-On is my life force.

I'm certainly more of a shut-in these days. Not by choice, but not that I mind. I've learned to appreciate the time I spend with myself.

I went the entire day without any verbal communication which is interesting to think about. All the more reason to hope that I get a job as even when I hang out with my roommate I still rarely leave the building.

That's no good, AIO-kun. I might dream of being a NEET, but I reckon everyone needs their time in the sun.

Yeah. Most days I don't leave the house - it's fairly rare. I do socialize actively over voice chat and with my family though.
