Yes, it can seem fake but one good thing about socializing is that you get to know if you like the person or not. If you like the person, then feel free to socialize with them and if you don't like them, then it's 'bye bye' to that person.
And socializing can be nothing more than having coffee and chatting about general stuff with that person. No need to bare your soul to that person (unless you want to of course).
And if the person you don't like is a co-worker, then just limit your exposure to what's necessary. After all, work is not a social event. Merely a pay cheque.
Hope this helps.
