    I feel like I am really boring

    as most of my friends are forever swapping boyfriends and have boys dropping at their feet. They always have texts coming through and getting their pictures liked and going out and I'm always indoors and I hardly speak to anyone. Some of my friends hang out with the bad people...

    people: Them: Hi, how are you? Me: I'm doing great! Me: .... (Secretly wants them to leave, so I won't bore them) Awkward Silence

    I never have anything interesting to say

    or worth talking about. I wonder why I'm a part of an experience site when I lack experience.

    Sometimes I think that the reason I have trouble keeping friends is because I'm so boring. The reason I can't easily hold up a conversation is because I'm boring to talk to. I feel like when someone is in a conversation with me, they just can't wait to leave because they're so...

    Or Perhaps I Just Don't Think I'm All That Interesting

    I recognize that I'm probably one of the more interesting people out there: a benefit of a life lived fairly erratically. The course my life has taken thus far is very unusual. In my day-to-day life I am often very busy writing, reading, going to movies, hanging out with movies...

    I don't know how to talk to people without

    scaring them off and when I do talk normally, I'd end up being boring.

    But Not Bored

    I might be the most boring person I know.  In terms of job, interests, hobbies, I'm as boring as a person can be. But I'm not particularly bored.  I think that's an altogether different thing.

    Ever been asked what your hobbies

    and interests are or what you do for fun and completely draw a blank? Yea, that's me. It makes me feel like I don't know myself and more so makes me think that that's maybe why I don't have friends because I have nothing in common with them

    I'm not good in keeping a conversation going.

    When I stop replying to someone's text, it's either I can't figure out what to say next or I'm too lazy to reply at the moment. In most cases, it's usually the first one.

    I just sit there and just let them talk and I don't say anything. I'm there daydreaming anyway so I don't have time to feel sad. Sometimes I do if I have bad days but nah id rather not have a headache by talking too much :D
