Because they know your cat hates them

i lol'd .. but seriously mchy make some friends in your classes. even you only know them for a semester its help class go by faster if you have someone to talk to if you get like a group assignment. the first one is always the hardest.


Nobody seems approachable in my classes. I mean I've had small convos with people in class before, but it has never seemed possible to go further than that. On campus everyone else just seems like a huge yoloswagger douchecannon.

Everybody can seem like they're unapproachable, until you actually try to talk to them.

But some people are actually pretty mean and judge others without knowing them.

@Farm
Well isn't it better to try and talk to someone instead of not at all?

@Ambiati
Then instead of thinking they're unfriendly, you know and then can stay away from them :P

Staying away from people is another thing but it bothers me when people have a problem with me or someone else but don't feel the need to directly come and talk to me instead of being all judgmental and not giving me a chance. :P

Anyway, Cathatesyou, you should try it out, it's better do something and try
again and again than do nothing. So go for it.

Isn't that what I'm also trying to say though, in a sense? Saying that everybody is unapproachable without even trying to talk to them is also judging the person without giving them a chance.

Yeap, pretty much. I've become friends with people with whom I had bad first impressions of (and vice versa). It all depends on your outlook. Personally, I've moved around a ton of times in my life (imagine having your first day of school three times a year, with an all new cast every time). If you make an effort, it shows. If you assume (and expect) the worst, that's probably what you're gonna get. If you're thinking "So-and-so doesn't like me and they don't even KNOW me.", well, guess what? You don't know them either, so it's possible that you're wrong.

Yeah, it is. But it's more like, when people give off this "I don't want to talk to you" and "You're annoying" vibe, then I feel like it's best to just stay away from them. Although even after that, I'm nice to everyone so I hope that calms them down.

Ah yeah, of course. Though I think it wouldn't hurt to try and have one conversation with them. If they still show they're uninterested, then it's their loss!

In a lot of cases, those seemingly unapproachable people are introverts. Generally they don't like small talk, but if you walked up to them and said something like "Hi, my name is <name.> What makes you tick?" you might be surprised at the response. I know because I am one, and generally I don't like small talk, but I love conversations. It's not that we're unfriendly, we just have to choose wisely where we spend our "social budget."

do you think you seem more approachable or any more friendly than anyone else?? i have the same problem but i recognize that i'm just socially inept. you can't expect people to go out of their way to talk to you first if you yourself don't go out of your way to talk to other people first. and you can't make friends if you don't at least try (which is why i have no friends). clubs seem to be a good designated way to make friends so maybe you could join something you're interested in. my 2 cents
