German term or phrase:halbazosial
"1985/86 lebte er halbasozial und wohnungslos quasi auf der Straße." This is in the profile of an author provided by the publisher.
Explanation: Assuming the agressiveness of antisocial is not what is meant, but only (voluntary) isolation from social contact (and in this case I would translate 'quasi auf der Straße') as 'more or less on the street').
