Think living alone’s broken me a bit the other way in this regard. Desperate for human conversation with the right people.

How do you navigate having friends who need more socialising than you without making them feel like you dislike them?

Do you ever ignore texts/WhatsApp because you can’t face being social but also hate disappointing people?

Do you ever feel like you spend your life just pleasing other people and putting on fake enthusiasm when you’d rather not bother?

Hate making plans to socialise more than two days in advance. That’s more than enough time for me to flake out of it.

I wish more people understood that not being super social doesn’t mean I dont like people, I just have a quite low capacity for being around them and need my own bubble-space more than interaction.

Yeah i definitely still have a limit but where I used to be thrilled about having a week of no social events, I start to go stir crazy now if I dont see anyone for like 3-4 days. And people can be so flaky but that I’d rather overpack my schedule rather than underpack it - November was awful, no one wanted to hang out at all (all my plans outside of football got cancelled) and I was so lonely.

I always think social stuff is going to be exhausting, but that’s because it’s been probably ten years since I had a regular set of friends or any kind of active social life. When I actually have to do stuff I’m generally fine but the lead up is full-on anxiety.

I’ve improved a lot on this front and can do a week or two quite easily. But genuinely don’t like buying, say, gigs tickets for something thats 6 months away as it just doesn’t feel real and idk makes me feel off!

Got a friend who over covid, for work and health and planning reasons, needs to organise everything, even like a chill drink at her house, over a month ahead. Was a real issue for me and made the whole process of meeting up just way less fun

Yeah I couldn’t handle that.

Do you sometimes fantasise about being seriously ill to avoid social obligations?
