Do you prefer online friends or offline? + not being social

Anyone here not very social and doesn't have much of a desire to make friends? When I was in further education college, I always never wanted to make friends and barely socialised with my class mates. Is being antisocial a part of psychosis/sz?

I like being alone 90% of the time, but sometimes (other 10%) I do want to chat. But, I always prefer/desire to have online friends than offline. Hence why I go to different forums.

What about you guys? :)

I prefer online friends I don't want to get entagled with so called real friends, I have been let down so many times, if they want some thing they are my friends, if I want some thing they are busy or or can't do it.

I would prefer offline but that doesn't seem possible. I'm not really antisocial just, awkward I guess.

I was not very social in college either and have very little offline social life except my parents.

Online friends are often more polite and kind. I am usually alone offline.

I prefer online friends now , prior to schizophrenia it was the entire opposite... use to really really enjoy socializing and getting lost in hours of endless conversations.. but things change.. comfort levels and such.

I would like more than just one real life friend but I find I cannot get friends because I believe they will want to know too much about me and want too much from me. My one friend just accepts me as I am.

I prefer offline because I can’t handle to be around someone for too long. I get nervous.

The only thing I don't like about friendships is when people try to hurt you for whatever reason. I think I prefer offline so I can get off my bottom and do things. But I really like to socialize and am enjoying this forum.

Online friends.
I don’t want anyone near me.
Lol I feel like this sometimes. Mostly when I am agitated and feeling a bit germophobic. There was this guy who liked me and started stalking me once. He was handsome but I would gross out at how dirty and unkempt he was because of my thoughts driving me crazy. I could only find relief at the thought of him taking a bath (completely non sensual).
