I'm sitting here at home on a Friday night wondering why this is the case. I like to think I have a decent personality, pretty annoying, maybe, but not hard to get along with. The problem seems to be that I can't really connect with people. No one seems to have the same interests. Hanging around with people at college is fine and everything but it feels like we do it more out of convenience, rather then because we get along and enjoy one anothers company. I don't really see any of them outside of college, maybe because most of them don't live in my town, but also because I don't really feel like I want to see them outside of college. I think that fact that I don't really share interests with any of them is the main issue. None of the people I know are as in to music as I am, or into films or anything else that I enjoy, really. I live in a small town so it's difficult to meet people with similar interests, especially considering that I'm not yet of the legal drinking age, so there are only a couple of places I can get served (neither of which I like all that much). I just want to be able to talk about things that actually interest me, instead of having to indulge someone else in a conversation about things they are interested in, but I am not and have to pretend to give a fuck. I want to be able to go out with friends that are actually friends.. Not acquaintances that I hang around with and talk to because I have nothing better to do. It's just there seems to be nothing I can do about it. Do I just have to wait until I go to uni to meet a more varied selection of people, or what? Edit - I should probably mention that I'm pretty quiet around people I don't know. I'm loud with people that I do know but just sit silently during classes with people that I'm not friends with. I guess I'm an introvert when it comes to meeting new people. Takes a while before I relax and become myself with someone.
