Sometimes I feel so prudish. I don't like to drink. I don't do drugs. I most definitely do not smoke. Don't get me wrong, I don't think you need to do any of those things to have a good time, but beyond that, I feel like I am so... dull.
At times I sense myself become asocial, although I would not like to be. I've been invited to attend several functions, whether it be parties or get togethers, whatever. But most of the time I find myself at home enjoying the company of none but my own.
Like right now. I could be at DnB's having a good time chillin' with friends and whatnot, but here I am, getting ready to go to bed so that I can wake up and go to work tomorrow at 8am.

A few years ago I had this thing where I could only socialize for so long, then I would have to be by myself or be driven insane. If I was around people too much it would make me feel uncomfortable, like I had a "social gauge" and when it was full, I was done for the day.
I dunno it might be the same for you. It takes energy to socialize and a lot of the times people don't have it...is alone time really that bad though? It's not like missing a few functions is going to bar you from ever entering into society agian.
Are you afraid to go? Too tired? Just...don't want to? » The-Muffin-Man

I have to say.. sometimes I think having a social life takes a toll on me because I'd be thinking of what would I be doing with so and so tomorrow and then you get unused to being alone.
I've been called a loner and anti-social for the longest time for I know that I am tactless so I stay away from people until I know that they know I'm tactless.
Sometimes, hanging out is good as long as you feel happy after that. When it becomes a chore, ditch it. » Nuttz

I'm the same way. I don't drink at all, don't do drugs, and chances are that I'd reject an invitation to hang out with someone for the chance to chill at my house and just relax on my own. I don't mind being one deep at all times; however, it does get a bit lonely occasionally.
A friend of mine called me anti-social a few days ago because I often choose to walk away from her and other people whenever they're planning to hang out.. To me, hanging out with a bunch of people just isn't a high priority ( if it's a priority at all. )

I don't drink or smoke or any of that either, and I dont' really plan on it. Not necessary to have fun ya?
It's ok to have alone time, I wish I had more sometimes. I like to hang out with people, but you can only handle people for so long. Don't think you're an outcast for not hanging out with them or attending the get togethers. I hardly go to those things either, unless it's something i'm dying to do, but unless I have the dying desure to go, then I won't. Why waste your time trying to be social, when you're just not in the mood, or feel like putting fourth the effort to mingle?
Don't feel dull, because you're not. » PinkPanther08
