A short conversation . . .
Person X: “You’re kind of a loner, aren’t you.”
Person Y: “Anthropophobia is hard on relationships. Relatives tell themselves you’re just shy, even though shyness doesn’t begin to explain things. Friends start believing you no longer care about them, which couldn’t be further from the truth. Anything social is an uncomfortable nightmare to be avoided at all costs.”
Person X: “Yeah, anthropology sucks.”
Person Y: “Go away.”
