Perhaps because you feel comfortable to do so or they bore you to tears or they dont care you zone out
Nobody is the same, everyone is different. Perhaps you have poor concentration issues or something else. Perhaps you could speak with a counselor or therapist to help you with your feelings.
It's easy to get wrapped up in the constant movement inside of your head while the world is constantly moving around you.
Zoning out/disassociation is a common symptom of anxiety. Because it's happening around people and even those you care about, it's likely social anxiety that you're experiencing.
Different people have different needs to privacy and alone time, maybe you just need less time with other people and more with yourself. That does not mean that you do not care about them.
