I'm Not Trying to Be Mean
but sometimes I just can't stand to be around people.
Years ago while I was in school I had a very full social life. I mean, I was 13 into pot, booze, guys, partying, clubbing all that guff. They were great years for me, surrounded by my friends and many many hot guys lol..(that is a whole other story in itself).
Anyway, as I got older I stopped smoking weed, cut out drinking all together, (only very rarely do I drink now), and stopped partying. I got a job at 17 and since then it's been work work work, bills, bills, bills... etc etc.
Now I'm 28 and through my 10 years of being an adult I've come to realise that I don't like to be around people. Not all the time mind you. 4 years ago I met my flatmate and we get along like a house on fire, we're quite similar actually and it's thanks to her and my ex dumping me..(again, a whole other story), that I started going to the pub and found my lovely darling I'm with right now. I hang out with people at work, WHEN I'm at work, but that's all I really need.
But in saying that I'd rather be at home with a good book or movie or anime series then be out on the town or whatever. My partner says to me to go out and enjoy myself but I cringe to think about it. I have once or twice to appease some people but I'm always thinking about coming back home and curling up with my book, haha.
Sometimes I think, people bore me. I don't feel the need to surround myself with a ton of people. I have my partner, who I love, my flatmate who is pretty much my best mate, and my family. Some people don't understand me, and I don't blame them for that, but I've seen so many fake people in my time it sickens me to think about sharing the same air as them.
