congrats man. surely you've tried this but maybe not. alcohol? im not saying get wasted (unless you wanna) but maybe having a drink or two will loosen you up and allow you to give less fucks about how terrible people are and shoot the shit with 'em. this works for me but i'm trying to work on being able to talk to heads i dont know/identify with, without the help of booze.

When I have a couple drinks everyone I talk to knows exactly how uninterested I am in what they have to say. No poker face with a few drinks.

btw.

might wanna peep this book

Got it the thee week when looking through the book thread. Decent.

 

congrats....but you're not an introvert you're just a prick yeah?!

 

I am a bit of a prick. But I blame that on the person, who perceives me as being a prick, is actually obviously pretending to give a shit about things they don't.

i write on things because i can't function in society..

 

 

fact.

 

 

waaaaaaaaaaa , waaaaaaa .....i'm different ....waaaaaaaaaaa

 

thats fucking lame.

 

fact.

I don't want it to be misconstrued that I am crying or bitching about being antisocial. As I said I have five friends that I'd be glad to not add to for the rest of my life, but for my girls benefit I'm trying to be more talkative and personable. However that's hard when you've spent your life not lying to people about what you think of them. Or maybe I am bitching. Who cares. Fuck you.

I just like to watch/listen without being the loudest and most opinionated person. Some people would perceive this as being introverted, I do not. I do value my time to myself very much and when I am alone but out in public I tend to introvert slightly. People and groups of people tend to annoy me as I get older tho.

 

Fuck bitches get money. Congrats on the vow's there bud, you still up the mountain?

 

Back to Toronto for the summer and possibly for good considering the marriage. Went back to the mountain solely for the party celebrating the retard I worked with for five years getting fired. Three days in Vancouver and five bottles of scotch and I'm fairly certain everyone knows exactly what I think of them there now.

I always thought introvert / extrovert as a false dichotomy

 

There are lots of people who love being alone but you would never know just because they can also put themselves out there and are good at talking anyone up

 

It really depends on people, place, mood, so much other shit

 

There are experiences you can only have alone and experiences you can only have with other people.. Being alone can be a useful skill.. Being with others can be a useful skill

I'm a speak when spoken to kind of person myself, at least with people I don't know very well, but the ability to chat up people is useful in so many ways

 

Fake it til you make it is the best advice ever.. Once you throw yourself into uncomfortable situations enough times you gain experience the best teacher. What else can you do?

Pretty terrible advice honestly.

This step establishes alcohol as a crutch ... bad because A) you might get to a point where you can't socialize without it , or B ) you might also get to a point where alcohol becomes a crutch for more than conversation.

I only ever really wanna talk to my girl or my close friends, and i have to be in the same room as them. fuck small talk. I do go off sometimes though if a stranger sparks my interest i try and keep the conversation going because who knows when the next time youll meet somebody who isnt a dumbass

Congrats and all that. Just man up and quit being a goob about talking to other people.

 

 

true enough! although it doesn't work when I've tried. I mean I can talk to people when they are legitimately interesting, but spare that it's a lot of me not giving a fuck and obviously being disinterested which turns people off. Again, I don't care, but I'd like to not be a hinderance to her and her connections made in the tattoo community.

Congratulations pen!

 

I'd much rather my own company, I'll even avoid people I like. I get super anxious around people BUT I'm awesome at interacting, even when I don't want to be.

 

It's easy, just smile, nod and agree with what they are saying. No one really listens to what anyone else is saying these days, they just want to be agreed with. As a rule, people are self absorbed cunts. I also find drinking heavily helps a lot.

 

Will you try and remember to post a picture of the wedding cake, please. Ta.

I'll start writing some stories from the mountain and the idiots I worked with again. perhaps that has a major role in my introversion. working 12 hour night shifts on a secluded mountain with five people for five months of the year. it was hard to tell wether I like the job because there is nobody around, or if I like being alone because of my job.

Congrats on the marriage, hope it all works out.

 

I can talk like hell once I know someone but in public situations and meeting new people I find it real hard, only way I have figured to deal with it has been to have a few drinks. As it is your wedding you should at least have a few of those in you.

 

If not fuck it people will be drunk and come up gushing over your wedding n shit.

That's pretty much how I am.

Been in your girls shoes and I can almost guarantee my dude was far worse than you. She should just appreciate the fact that you're out with her. If you can shoot the shit with randoms then kudos to you.
