I once had a very social suitemate and I paid attention to her character to see what exactly made her a likeable person. I learned that she was genuinely interested in other people. She would set aside her own affairs to do things for other people. She often would bake all sorts of goodies for her friends, she would throw dinner parties, she would decorate their rooms on birthdays. All sorts of stuff that I just can't be bothered with.
It seems having a social life takes work.
lol...well, thanks for that comment.
Sadly, I don't have a lot of friends, though. For the time being, it feels as if I have 0 real-life friends, actually.
The biggest difference between that girl and me would be that she sounds very outgoing. I'm far too reserved to do things like throw dinner parties. I like to do things for people in quiet ways (which probably translates to boring). I think that what you say about me is probably true, though.....that I am interested in others. Problem is, I don't show it. I have to know someone very well to show it, actually. Or they at least have to seem to take a liking to me first.
I do know a girl who sounds similar to the one you mentioned, though. I became pretty good friends with her last year. Being around her so much, though, I think she could be a little too over-the-top with things.....always trying to be in your business and know every little detail of your life. It could feel like too much.
i feel hurt or something because the two people didn't acknowledge me when i said hi to them. i know they saw me. the guy looked right at me.
well, i know why...
it's because i am the one who usually ignores them. but for some reason i just said hi because we were the only ones there.
but who cares anyway? why do i have the little sick feeling in my stomach just because they didn't say hi back to me.
so silly...who cares...
why can't i just grow up..
if anyone is reading this..i encourage your criticism so i can be immune to what people think.
I've done that before. I agree it's not a good feeling.
*And if you want someone to criticize you, you may want to find a different forum, lol. Too many people here understand.
