Being with other people changes your biochemistry. You don't have to do anything but sit in the same room with other people and you change.

Not me. I am too shy.
I don't really like most people, but I have a job and am involved with other situation's that mean i'm forced to not only socialize, but to try and get people to like me nearly all day, every day. I get nothing out of these people, only my boyfriend, 3 close friends and my brother. Aside from that I would happily never speak to anyone, ever again. Like someone said, a lot of people do it for the social status. Snooze.
Definitely, but they're not standard people; they've all had traumatic life experiences that have to me, made them more understanding, forgiving, and generally chilled out (basically, not judgmental.) Being a girl I find a lot of women are so bitchy, and the more attractive i've become the more attention i've got from them, as well as men, which has made me realise how pretentious people are. Ignore how arrogant that sounded please, i'm only saying it because its anonymous ;)
Sorry, long story short, yes I do get happiness :) you will do if you're patient in finding the right people. There are lot's of a**holes in the world
p.s knowing people for quite a few years, definitely helps, creating memories etc
...not to be cheesy or anything
Please keep it down, I am watching football.
In my experience, people spend more time talking about how fun it is being social than actually having fun being social. Ever gone to a crap party, and the next day people are talking up what a CRAAAZZYYY night it was? It's not about the experience, it's about the social status.
Perhaps. It's wide though.
sounds pretty special
You do realize going out and getting drunk is basically the national past-time in Australia, of course. It's wonderful that you're the kind of guy that genuinely loves a tight-knit group of friends, but I don't believe it's the norm. "Nerd night" sounds amazing, but again, the majority of society is not holding nerd nights every week. They're climbing the facebook ladder.
And I get the impression you assume a lot of things without much info really. A lot of time on Facebook? lols waaay off. Why did you even bother to reply to my answer with a thinly veiled insult, if this place doesn't make sense to you? Actually, please don't reply, it's a waste of time for both of us.
lols so "you have some *(#$# experience then" wasn't aimed at me. yeahhhhh
dude, I've just shown you that your experiences are not the norm. your world sounds wonderful, I'm glad for you, really. But as you said yourself, you don't particularly like what most of society is doing. And all I did was describe the norm. Now go away, enjoy your life. Stop stalking my answers.
