Socialization: Nothing else matters.
#11
Cathedral Wrote:Hardly anything is "fun" without some Goddamned socialization going on, and LOTS of it. At least, it is to most people. No one goes to the theater to watch a movie. No one goes to the restaurant to eat good food. No one goes to the amusement park to experience the rides. No one goes to the park or the beach to exercise or enjoy the view. Hell, no one goes to college for the education or the homework. They go there... just to yap on and on with their fucking stupid friends! If there are no friends, they will just pop out their little cell phone and text or call their friends.

Uhhhh lotta bitterness and ignorance in this statement.

YES people go to the theaters to watch movies. YES people go to restaurants to eat food. YES people go to amusement parks for rides. YES people go to the beach for swimming and the view. And YES YES YES people go to college for education. The socialization is a byproduct of people being around people. There'd be socialization in a prison camp; does that mean that prison camps are only for socialization? NO.

Furthermore, to say that socialization is a handicap to humanity (as you're implying) is just silly.

This attitude is not going to help you or get you anywhere, Cathedral. If other people are more social than you that means they are going to initiate the interaction and include you in their social activities. This is more likely to happen than not to happen. So during college try to have some fun for God's sake!

Not true. If I don't attempt to initiate anything, then nothing is going to happen.

Why cant you socialize?

I agree with what you said generally, except the beach.. if its a good beach I would go and it would even be worth it if I was alone.

I also dont really like parties or the movies or things where you have to meet too many people, but what you said is about right.

But why dont you socialize. Someone who is able to type all that you just typed is clearly able to express themselves enough to have relationships.

I think even if you have not met the right people.. its only a matter of time.

No offense,but it sounds like you're only saying this because you can't do it as good as you want to.

hmm well, for me you seem like a person that is quite capable of socializing since you don't have any trouble following the conversation, expressing yourself and you have quite the vast vocabulary baggage...so the problem might be elsewhere
Although,communicating in real life is quite different than on the internet ^^;; that I will admit it.
Instead of feeling helpless about your problems, why not look for ressources like I said. They are social and support networks for people with autism and aspergers syndrome or any type of person with difficulties in socializing, you should try to look into it.
There are success stories, not all blind and deaf people are isolated and the same thing can be said for people who can't socialize...theres always a way to learn and grow Smile
Btw, walking and socializing are both instincts right ? But if we don't teach our kids to walk at a young age it will become rather difficult and it will take more time, but in the end , that child will still be able to walk. Same thing for socializing, we learn that throughout all our lives but we start to develop it at a very young age, at school especially. Some grow up to be good at this thanks to the experience they gained and some don't.....we are all capapble of socializing and it is possible to learn the tools to be able to Smile some just do it differently than others Big Grin

There are no support groups anywhere near where I live. I wish I could move and get away from the filthy, insipid, and vapid hellhole called Jackson, Tennessee!
