This Is So Frustrating
Alright, so I have this problem that most people probably wouldn't consider a problem at all. Everytime I hang out with my friends and I meet new people, my friends always tell the people we meet (usually pretty girls) that I am a genius. Even though I am technically a genius, I really don't like that they do this because I feel like it puts pressure on me to be a certain way. I mean, I like to drink at bars and have a good time in that respect, but at the same time, all I ever want to talk to people about are complex concepts of astrophysics, philosophy, and various forms of societal constructs, etc. Most people drinking at bars cannot or don't want to hold these types of conversations and I find most things people do like to talk about to be inane and meaningless. Yet, I just want to be what I percieve as "normal" so I don't seek out other intellectuals to discuss these things with. I usually end up just standing there not saying much. I feel like I don't fit in anywhere. I need other chill people who like to use their brains and challenge their intellects, but aren't sticks in the mud, if that makes any sense. I feel like I'm rambling now so I'll just leave it at that. This is driving me crazy. Help?
