Social Life

138 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I've seen a lot of people around the forums base stuff off of their social lives, making fun of people for it as well. "omg y dont u go out n get a gurl or ur so gay", shit like that pisses me off.

Let me get something straight here, I don't have a personal life really and it isn't my fault (I don't think at least), I have severe social anxiety because of traumatic experiences when I was a kid. They're not as bad as you think but let's just say I've met some assholes in my life.

Now, I'm just wondering, who here has a good social life? And who here bases this forum off of a social life, e.g. making fun of peoples social lives.

I like to consider my social life very good. I've got a girlfriend, great mates, we go out, have a great time. However, i know some people who's social lives aren't as.... 'prolific' as mine, for whatever reason. I find no reason to consider these people 'worse - off' or 'socially inept', that's just plain not nice. I accept it if someone is perfectly happy to spend their time alone indoors, which is what i want sometimes too. It's perfectly normal for people (teenagers especially) to have problems connecting with people, making friends and so on, it's part of life.

Yeah, I hate people that do that.

My best friend (only current friend :P) told me I was a happy person about a year ago until I figured out what I was missing. Great.

Heh, loads of people here don't have good social lives, and I guess I'm one of them - any GTA webmasters that are great socialisers?

Never really go out much and have a small group of friends back home and a small group at uni, never been popular or anything, and I'm not sporty so didn't make friends through clubs and after school stuff etc. So yeah. Pretty boring life at the moment, but hey, GTAIV keeps me occupied a lot of the time! :P

I have absolutely no social life. I'm short, shy, half-Asian in a predominately white community, and most of my friends are complete assholes. That ought to tell you why.

What does that mean?

I got good friends at school. Not the most popular but who gives a shit? I spend a lot of time here, I make friends here like I would make in real life so it's all good. Although, I couldn't care less if any of you don't have a social life it's not my business.

Meh, my social life is kinda in shambles. I had a girlfriend, from before I joined the forums, but then I found that she was two-timing me with some other guy. So, I did what anyone else would do in my situation, I broke his jaw (after school). She dumped me, blah blah, we both moved on, blah blah blah. My friends are awesome, I've known them since year 4, we have our fights, we end up beating each other up, after all that we say sorry. I trust them to back me up in any situation. I don't really want to get into the dating scene again, at least until I'm a bit older.

my social life totally boring...

i'm shy, i don't want public attention, i just want to be a mysterious person...

i do have few friends who backstabbed me years ago, and i know they are still backstabbing me :(

thank God 2 of them are left to support me in bad times :)

at school, i'm not a popular person and i'm rather obscure, i'm thinking sometimes that i don't exist in this world

girls in my class hated me because i speak very bluntly against them :(

i also doubt that someone likes me...

i think one of the causes is that i'm not raised to be a friendly person, i'm always confined inside the house but my parents always let me to get out without being worried about me safety... i'm just a totally dumb ass

no one will like me if you know me personally

I had many friends back in the old days. Once we moved onto High School they all stabbed be in the back very deep. Now all I'm left with are a few friends of the same race as me who I can seriously doubt as a friend at times. Does anyone know what that leaves me with?

It's kinda tough making friends when everyone thinks you look like a Mexican and calls you a beaner for it.

Nothing. I just don't like dumbass rednecks calling me that EVERY FUCKING DAY. It gets really old, really fast. I mean, I don't around calling them a bunch of inbred hicks that are gonna spend their lives on welfare when they finally grow up. Then again, I might be right.

guess you need to move to a country where people look like Mexicans... as a Filipino Malay living in a predominantly Malay country, i never experienced discrimination :)

actually thats one of the causes why i don't want to live in other countries, i just don't want to be discriminated

I have a great socila life.. just it involves alot of illegal activity.. but meh thats what you get for growing up in the Compton of Australia.

I can tell by your hilarious pics :P

Australia is a Westernised country. That equals to a lot of racial discrimination. I had to survive 7 years of stupid primary school being teased because I was the only Asian in the school. *sigh*

Do I have a good social life? - It's in the middle to be honest.

I do spend a bit of time with my friends, but I got exams and all of that coming up meaning I can't spend time or chill out with my friends because of that. I do tend to be active on TGTAP, but that's usually cause I've done all my work and/or that my friends aren't really there.

So it's balanced for me, but it gets a little rigid from times.

Right now my social life ain't too great (same reasons as TMs really, exams and stuff coming up for me). I do though at least go our socialising once a week, and plus when I'm not busy I play football virtually every weekend and sometimes weekends. I would say my social life is good.

@ People Who think they have no social Life

I dont know how to put this but I did question someone on these forums (can't remember who) because they said they ddin't have a social life and I didn't really understand why. I think you should sort of go out with your friends, if you dont have any you have to make some. I reckon if you are a loner its because you choose to be that way, I know how people feel though who have communication problems etc. Someone in my area had that so we always had to phone him to play footie not the other way round.

Hm, I could say it's improving, I'm making more friends and managing to get on with them ok, but it's pretty hard.

But whenever I meet new people, or in public places full of people I just freeze up and don't speak. But I guess I'm becoming a bit more confident, that doesn't happen as bad or as much anymore.

I mostly spend my time inside, well all my time, but I went out before to the shop and bought a coke on my own, for some reason, I'm pretty proud of myself, because it probably doesn't seem hard at all for most of you but I really find it hard, especially if I'm on my own.

I suffer from really serious anger problems, so when I someone pisses me off at school or something, I just go insane, laughing in an evil way, scraping my face against rough walls and headbutting doors and sometimes taking it out on people, throwing stones at peoples heads while shouting "Die you fucking cunt I'll slit your throat", and when people see that, they just don't really want anything to do with me, so that makes it harder for me to make friends, but if they ask me why, I tell them, and they become my friend, because they see that I'm not really a bad person, and more people are asking me why, so I keep making friends, improving my social life.

So I guess I could say it's pretty shit, but it's good enough for me.

I've improved my social life big time in these past 2 years, I used to be really shy and stuff like that and now I'm funny, I hang out with my friends and all that so I could say I have a good social life. I don't have a girlfriend but I could so I guess it's okay.

I have some pretty cool friends around where I stay. All we do is chill wherever and smoke out. It's a simple life, but I love it. Every now and then I'll go out with friends and do shit too, though.

I'm moving out for college in around a month, living on campus. I'm not gonna have a car either so I'm gonna be stuck there on campus for at least a few months with nothing other than a bike. I think I'll have fun though, I'm just gonna meet new people and hunt out all the stoners I can find.
