    The Burden Of Socializing

    Yeah, I am tired of socializing too. The fact of the matter is, the older I get, the less tolerance I have for other people's hurtful hidden agendas, etc.. Every now and again, socializing will be a joy when I meet someone who is genuine, and just fun to be around, but a lot of...

    .

    Socializing is like being bedridden for years and then trying to jog a mile... right now, I can barely even walk. And when I do, I look something like a frail baby deer taking its first shaky steps. But hey, I'm strength training. When I go out, it's with the goal of...

    It Is Best to Avoid It.

    I'm one of those people that avoid social situations as much as possible. Although I do get bouts of "I want to see people" most of the time, I'm pretty reclusive. The one thing that makes socialising so very tiring for me, is having to keep up an appearance of sorts...

    Socialising

    Yeah it can be very draining, and it can bring some good rest afterward.

    it takes sooo much effort to force smalltalk and to be sociable with people that you really could care less about or just dont feel like talking to. like i hate going to gatherings and events where conversation is forced and people try to start conversations with you about the...

    I Love (most) People, Don't Get Me Wrong

    I find socializing very taxing. I'm not really all that introverted most of the time, because I do talk a lot (sometimes), so I don't think it's that. I find too much interaction with people drains the energy reserves. Usually by the end of the day I'm pretty drained. It's a...

    But Still Love It

    I tend to be very energetic, and very carefully pay attention to people when I am socialising.  I tend to go off in tangents and bring as many people in to conversation as I can and smile as much as I can.  I remember when I used to cover press...

    Exhausted

    I sometimes hang with a buddy all day long. Depending on who it is, I sometimes feel drained, even if they are really chill. I just call them energy vampires. LOL

    Why I Hate Socializing

    Socializing is effing exhausting for me... To put on a happy face and be empathetic and understanding and actively listen to people's needs and concerns and stories. I try to be the best, try to quickly decide what is the best response to people in each conversation I have. It's...

    Many people don't get

    that I'm an introvert. After socializing for a while I need time to recover. But it's hard to explain to my extrovert parents. Any advice?

    Oooh *yawn*

    It can be so exhausting. Smiling trying to make small talk, always feeling like you are soley responsible to prevent or fill the awkward silences. I think the hardest is when you have to meet a lot of new people, I mean one or two isn't bad but when you have to go somewhere that...

    Wipeout

    People tend to wipe me out especially in say a party situation and I'm forced to go beyond my normal social limits. This is often why you find me disappearing either to the computer or a quiet corner to sedate my brain, rebalance myself and collect my thoughts. I love people, don...

    However It's Different For Me Online....

    This type of socializing I love!   It doesn't drain me like social events do.  There are different expectations and requirements at social gatherings.  Online is where you get to choose to whom you want to speak and be wearing your pj's the entire time :)

    Introvert Here.

    I'm a true introvert. I get out and socialize but if I'm around other people (besides my small group of friends or my husband) I'm left exhausted. Small talk annoys me a bit, but I do it to fit in. Plus I don't like telling people deeper things about me, so 'the weather' it is...

    It's Very Draining.

    Never mind actually having to talk to people face-to-face, monkeys & associates forbid. Even just talking to people on here exhausts me. (I believe there is something called social stamina though. Some people are born with massive reserves. Some of us just need to train...

    Sensitivity

    I always need alone time after socializing, that´s what I need to recharge. I get my energy from rest and quiet, not from being out and about. it´s just who I am but it took me a long time to figure out and to stand by what I need, and not feel abnormal about it. I used to feel...

    Socializing Burns More Calories Than Working Out

    I get extremely exhausted after socializing. In fact, I have noticed that if I'm forced to socialize for days at a time, I can drop as many as 3 pounds over just a few days. A day long job interview will always cause me to lose 2 or 3 pounds. When I go on business trips and am...

    Talking Makes Me Tired
