    Default Fellow introverts, which of the many uncomfortable situations is your least favourite

    When I'm in a caffeteria I will deliberately choose a table where nobody is sitting so that I can eat quietly and happily. Myself, my food and my thoughts....
    Then somebody joins me, and another, and another and with each addition I become more uncomfortable and anxious! The worst is when someone plonks themself down right across from you so that it is impossible to look up without looking into their face, OH, THE TORTURE OF IT ALL! I want to take my plate and run for the hills, but I don't. Instead I keep my head down and chew for dear life. By now I'm so nervous and aware of everyone at the table that I don't even taste the food and am entertaining the most hostile thoughts towards the poor human beings who are innocently eating their food.
    I seem calm but it looks very much like this inside::steam:

    Joining a table with people I don't know is uncomfortable. Being joined by other people isn't.

    In cafeterial situations I prefered to just eat outside.
    No offense.

    Haha. Are you in high school ?
    It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it.

    Perhaps you feel they are invading your personal space?

    Or maybe you think they are looking at you and judging you?

    Or maybe you think they might strike up unwanted conversation with you?

    Why do you think it makes you feel uncomfortable?

    Yes, I think it's about the personal space. I made the effort to be by myself but can't control the situation by saying, 'hey, please go away, I don't like people and I was here first." because THAT WOULD BE INCREDIBLY RUDE AND SOCIALLY UNACCEPTABLE.
