Out of a group or workplace etc, I would only feel comfortable talking to a certain few people. For example, if there were 30 people, I would only feel comfortable talking to about 5 people. Some of them who i dont want to small talk with, don't like it or feel offended when I don't feel like talking to them. Sure, I might smile at them when they look at me. Its not like I completely just ignore them. But why would they think they are entitled to me talking to them?

I’m the same way people think I’m stuck up because of it, and hate me for it aswell….. I actually quit a job because of it because the environment around me became toxic and people kept trying to sabotage me creating false rumors about me because they were butt hurt that I didn’t talk to them…. Some people drain the energy out of me there are only certain people out there that can charge me those are the people I keep around… I like fun upbeat child like people1

There is nothing wrong with you. Not everyone likes going around chatting to multiple people in a room, some feel just feel comfortable only chatting to the small number of people we know the best.
Don't go around making false conversation for the sake of it. If you feel a natural connection with someone, then talk.10

Because trying to start a conversation with someone isn't easy and it's considered bad etiquette not to at least entertain the conversation long enough to at least respond wo what the person's saying. If they won't stop talking that's different but you don't want to make people feel bad. Especially if they think they're doing you a favor like trying to bring you into a social circle.
Talking with others and networking is very important and worthwhile
