I've started college recently and I'm aware socialising is a significant part of the process.

I think my MD has caused me to become so internalised in that I don't seek much to appreciate about social interaction in real life, especially as they prefer to converse about the usual  matters on a daily basis.

I don't ever blame them, I simply choose not to engage in such matters because I feel as though I don't have anything to add to the conversation where my own life is concerned - not that it's uninteresting, but more like I view it as unimportant. It's only my imagination that I can resonate the most strongly about.

Apart from finding others with common interests, one way to solve this is to somehow incorporate some of the imagination into the everyday conversations. That way, it won't be so much of a "small talk" after all. Have you tried this before, and what were the people's reactions?

Feel free to discuss your experiences of small talk.

I can relate to you on that, I didn't understand why it was so important to have friends and be social, it's not like food and water. But I guess if you don't have a social life, you get addicted to your imagination a lot quicker, and that's not good for you. People with MD aren't very social because they're too much into their imaginations. Plus, I can relate to the talking about one's life. People who daydream don't really have much of a personal life, I believe, because it's about who they are and what they did in the past and who they want to be. When I try to thin of who I am, half of it feels like the cartoons I've been addicted to, and the other half is just like: "Um...just a girl who's turning sixteen who goes to high school." However, if you bring more of a social life, then chances are you will have interesting things to talk about with your life because you'll know more about yourself. Also, sometimes it's hard to choose a topic for the conversation; I've had that with many of my friends, but that just adds to the fun of thinking of one. I guess if one would want to talk about their imagination somehow in the conversation, they could probably say what their beliefs are, or a tiny bit about themselves.
