My my smartass bartender told me I was the best sociopath he ever met.

It's true I have a hard to time feeling love and making friends and I don't care about what the law or governments think.

I also don't care about love or relationships and just wanna fuck.


But I'm not violent or harmful I'm a peaceful soiciopath because I give high tips but break rules. Like smelling like pot even after being told not to. He's not mad at me he's trying to figure me out.

I'm may be a shitty person but I'm honest. Yeah it's true I wanna know what others think but only because I'm curious.

I don't wanna harm anyone I just wants my kicks mostly and love being fucked with and fucked up.

This is also why I wanna do stand up and dark humor.

I know my place and I'm not afraid of anyone but, I wanna be alone and I need others to help me sometimes and I know I wanna be self made but other people exist.

Hell I'm typing to you all.

People say I'm too intelligent to be depressed sometimes and I'm their favorite autistic sociopath.

I looked up the definition of a sociopath years ago and what I took from it was that they only think of themselves and don't know right from wrong, I think there was a little more to it but that was the gist of it.

I believe you know what's right and what is wrong so I'd class you as more of a rebel than a sociopath in the case of you not following rules.

As far as violence goes I believe that's a psychopath (anti-social and violent according to my dictionary), so I don't believe you're one of those either and neither do you and rightly so.
I also don't care about love or relationships and just wanna fuck.
Haven't we all at some point in our lives? mainly when we're younger though, I don't see anything wrong with enjoying being single but just wanting sex and there's an 'app for that' I believe where you can meet people who feel the same way so you're definitely not alone there.

Unless you've left something out I can't see any evidence of you being a sociopath at all.

Thanks for the info. This is by no means a diagnosis I just been called one a few times and now I'm wondering if I am one.

Maybe I just have a trait of one.

I think sociopaths show no empathy for others but are not necessarily prone to violence

I don't know if I have empathy for others that's the question.

How do I tell?

Since I spend most my time alone I naturally grow apart and am a lone wolf as such. It can be seen as me only using others for resources rather than having an actual connection.

I can't keep a long term relationship unless it benefits me or both of us.

I've noticed the few close friendships I have are also conveniently my drinking and smoking buddies and my past friendships aren't ended it's just I only check up on them but, don't get involved unless there's fun to be had or profit to be made.

Am a bad person here I mean am I really just using people and not knowing it?

Furthermore does this mean my lack of being able to feel close with others mean I'm a lost cause when it comes to being a good person?

dude you sound just extremely depressed for me i was so numb to anything thats what i used to think i assume your hear because life has been hard right ? going through bad times ? if true to those questions seek help try occupational therapy for me it works wonders personally psychology is a load of bollocks but that is my subjective experience which may not be yours
