I lost 2 such really good friends thanks to my weirdness and I somehow ended up saying something that made them misunderstand me and they no longer talk to me, although, I still get happy birthdays, happy new years and all that from them. I still do not understand what went wrong.

The problem mostly is that I am great in one on conversation scenarios, and really speak with people, capture their attention , fascinate them e.t.c. Once the scenario changes to 3 + people , it gets awkward. I am the most silent person in groups and small talk is not my forte. People fail to understand how and why this sudden shift in attitude came about. Some even misunderstood and asked me if they have said or did something wrong for me to suddenly feel so uncomfortable.

And keeping in touch with whatever friends I have remaining is also a herculean task. I can’t remember birthdays e.t.c.

I do not understand the meaning of “just saying Hi”.

Just say hi and then what?? < hearing crickets >
