I don't know about hate, but my mind tends to travel when it comes to boring talk. and don't let me be in a group. i slip off the first moment no one is paying attention. rude, but i have stopped caring.

I guess the two personalities of me clash when it comes to this... (Not bipolar, but.. whatever, it'll make sense). The way I was raised to be polite and stuff leads me towards listening to the other person and actually talking with them, but at the same time that is happening, my depression/Anxiety will be slowly creeping up on me until I DO eventually just start trying to find the quickest way out. I'm okay with small talk from friends and stuff, but if it is someone I barely know, I'm more likely to either give really short answers and seem rude, or just ignore them completely

Sometimes yes, when I'm outside focusing on being inside and someone approaches me for small talk, it makes it harder for me being outside. I just want to be in and out. No "road blocks" ie "small talk." I'm starting to think I'm getting a little anti social.

Yes, sometimes. It really puts me on the spot and I usually become tongue tied. I appreciate people who try to casually interact with me but I end up becoming anxious and then I over analyze every single thing I said and did when it's over. It can be exhausting.

I don't get small talk, just do not get it. I don't see the point of talking about the weather while it is obvious 'it is hot/cold, sunny/rainy' so why state the obvious. I do get that it is there to fill in the uncomfortable silence and awkward moments, but I do often wonder why humanity still hasnt simply accepted this general awkwardness and are open to talk about that when feeling awkward. So yes, small talk, I suck at it and don't get it, so I hate it!
